A chimney starter is one of the most useful products for a charcoal grill. Just fill it with Kingsford coals, add a couple sheets of newspaper and light the bottom. They’ll be ready for the grill after about 10 minutes, when flames start to flicker out the top.
No matter what recipe you’re grilling up, it starts with the right charcoal arrangement. Whether you’re cooking chicken, pork, ribs or vegetables, there’s a right way and a wrong way to prep your grill or smoker. The good news is that learning tastes delicious.
