How to Light a Charcoal Grill Naturally: Never Use Lighter Fluid Again

charcoal grilling life 1231 300x199 How to Light a Charcoal Grill Naturally: Never Use Lighter Fluid Again“Let the Lighter Fluid Burn off the Charcoal for about 20 Minutes”… Or Just Suck On An Exhaust Pipe

By Larry Kay

Excuse the sarcasm but if you’re going to use charcoal there is no need to ever use lighter fluid. Simply take a page of newspaper (yes, you may have to buy a newspaper to do this, but you’ll be set for the whole summer that way), drizzle a tablespoon of plain vegetable oil over it and crumple the paper up to smear the oil all over. Take the wadded up paper and put it on your lower grill grate, mound up your coal over it in a “pyramid” shape (or, as we call it, a pile) leaving a small area of the paper accessible. Light the newspaper and the oiled paper will act as a wick; your coals will be ready in about 20 minutes and there’s no chemical residue or nasty taste involved.
