How To Start A Charcoal Grill

But before you can start making the perfect rack or ribs or juicy burger, you have to start the grill! Chimney Starter MethodWant to start a grill but a little freaked out by lighter fluid? Fill your chimney starter with your desired amount of charcoal (a full starter is usually about 100 briquettes). Then in the bottom of your grill, place down some material to start the initial fire in an area no larger than the bottom of the chimney starter. To start your charcoal fire with one, start by arranging up a mound or pyramid of charcoal like you would if you were using lighter fluid.
