Guide to Grilling


--Mound briquets in a pyramid-shaped pile in the center of grill.

--If you are using an electric starter, insert into coals 8 minutes, then unplug and remove. When using a liquid starter, allow it to soak in for about one minute before lighting.

--After coals are ash covered spread into single layer.

--To check temperature of coals, hold the palm of your hand 4 inches above coals. Count to number of seconds before the heat forces you to take your hand away; 2 seconds for hot, 4 seconds for medium, and 4 seconds for low.

--To lower cooking temperature, spread coals further apart. To raise temperature, move coals closer together.
