How To Prepare The Coals On A Charcoal Grill

The truth about making money from home

An electric grill offers the benefit of great convenience, as it enables you to cook by simply flipping a switch or pressing a button, but even in spite of the convenience provided by an electric grill, a lot of people cannot ditch their charcoal grill because of the superior taste it provides; if you have a charcoal grill yourself, one thing you will want to realize is that starting your coals with lighter fluid is the wrong way to do it, as using lighter fluid will give your food an inferior taste, which completely nullifies the benefits of grilling your food on a charcoal grill.

If you want to fire up your charcoal grill the right way, the first thing you will want to do is remove both of the metal grates inside the grill, and then you will want to ball up some sheets of newspaper and place them in the bottom; make sure these balls of newspaper are not clumped so tightly together that the fire cannot get going, and make sure they are not so tightly wadded that no air gets in.

Once the balled-up newspaper is in place, it will be time for you to replace the lower grate and stack your coals over the newspaper in a pyramid formation; in figuring out how many coals you should use, know that there should be enough coals to cover all of the grate if you spread them out, without any of them stacking on top of others.

You can light the newspaper once you have reached this point, and this should get the coals going; you will still want to keep an eye on things, however, as it might take a couple times to get the coals to take (if it is taking a while, consider opening the air vent at the bottom of the grill to get some airflow).

You are just about ready to cook once you have reached this point; give the coals about ten or fifteen minutes to get hot from bottom to top, and then you will be able to spread the coals out across the bottom grate, put the cooking grate over the coals, and throw your meat on the grill; if you have followed these steps properly, you will have coals that are hot and perfect for cooking, and in no time at all, you will have a delicious meal that you would not be able to match on a gas grill.
