6 Easy Ways to Start a Coal Fire BBQ

The tastiest food from a BBQ comes from a coal fired BBQ. From steaks, chicken, sausages, shrimps or hamburgers, nothing beats the natural smoky flavor of a coal fired BBQ. Having a coal fired BBQ allows the meat to be cooked by the warm hot heat from the coals and also by smoke cooking. Gas or electricity fired BBQ cooking has nothing to be compared to the taste of a coal fired BBQ. A coal fired BBQ is also the cheapest way to start a BBQ. All you need is coal. The main problem of coal fired BBQ is starting one.

Here are 6 easy tips to start a coal fire BBQ:

1. If you can, get a small metal container the size of a small rubbish bin. Put a lot of holes in the container and then fill it one half way up with coal. If you don’t have a small metal container, just put the coal in the BBQ, and then clump them together like a mountain.

2. Pour lighter fluid on the charcoal as liberally as possible. Do not ignite the charcoal yet when doing so, as you may light up the lighter fluid canister making a potential fire hazard. If you just have briquettes (ignition cubes), you need to clump all the coal around the briquette and then ignite.

3. If you don’t have any lighter fluid or briquettes, you can use the old fashion way and burn newspaper on the coal. Just ignite the newspaper and then chuck on the coal on top of it.

4. Let the fire burn until there is a consistent flame.

5. Once you have started a fire, get a newspaper or a large firm thin object, and fan the coals in a slow gentle manner. Once the coal has started to turn red, fan the coals in a rhythmic and brisk manner. This will help speed up the heating and temperature of the coals. If you have the coals in a small metal container with holes in it, this process will be shorter for you.

6. Once the coal has a red glow with a white ashy tinge to it, it is time to put the meat on. If you have the coal in a metal container, you can empty the coal into your BBQ.

Once you tried coal fired BBQ, you’ll start to see the taste difference!

If you follow these 6 simple steps, you have the perfect steak. Bon appetite!
