Steps in Lighting an Open Grill Barbecue

If you want to light up an open grill barbecue, you must follow some essential steps. But first, you must acquire these things: Heat Beads Firelighters, Heat Beads BBQ Briquettes, a match or a lighter, and of course, your barbecue grill.

Opting for an open grill barbecue means that your grill must have open bottom vents. Once you have opened the vents, you must pour a sufficient amount Heat Beads BBQ Briquettes onto the bottom grill. They must evenly cover the cooking areas with one layer. For a better cooking performance, your briquettes must be positioned approximately 150mm below the cooking grill on a fire grate. Your briquettes will be more effective when they are lit on a fire grate since they would allow air to circulate under the fuel.

Then, place 3 Heat Beads Firelighters on top of the first layer of briquettes. They must be spread across the layer of briquettes so that it will be evenly lit up. Once the firelighters are placed, you must maintain and arrange a pyramid of briquettes over them. A fourth Heat Beads Firelighter must be positioned on top of the briquette pyramid.

Once all set, you must light the firelighters with a match or a lighter. Leave the whole setup for about 40 minutes or until the briquettes are ashed over. Afterward, spread fuel evenly under the cooking area and start the barbecue process. If you are done with barbecuing, you can extinguish your setup by pouring water over the fuel. Another option for extinguishing your grill is to cover hot briquettes with sand or dirt.
