HOW DOES A CHARCOAL STARTER WORK?
If you do not have a Barbecook charcoal BBQ with the Quick-Start® system, it is best to use a Barbecook charcoal starter to get your coals or briquettes burning. With this cylindrical tool you save yourself a lot of unnecessary mess. First of all, take the grill grid of your charcoal BBQ and place a few Barbecook lighter cubes on the bottom grid. Place the charcoal starter on top of the lighter cubes. Then pour the starter full of charcoal or briquettes. Light the lighter cubes through one of the holes on the side of the charcoal starter using a long match or lighter. The advantage of this method is that the charcoal starter sucks in the hot air from below and spreads it through the coals. When the edges of the charcoal are glowing, or the briquettes are covered with a thin layer of grey ash, they are ready for use and you can carefully drop them into the bowl of your charcoal BBQ thanks to the safe-drop system of your charcoal starter. Then put some extra charcoal or briquettes in the barbecue bowl until it is half full. Wait until all the charcoals/briquettes are white/hot. Let’s get the grill party started!
