How to Grill with Charcoal

Plays: 9491

Summer’s not summer until you’ve fired up the grill. In this video, you’ll learn an easy way to start a kettle grill or barbeque using charcoal briquettes. You’ll discover what the coals should look like when they’re ready for food. We’ll show you both the direct and indirect heat methods of grilling and barbequing. The direct heat method is similar to broiling, and is perfect for grilling steaks, chops, chicken, and kebabs. Want a little extra smoky flavor? We’ll show you how to prepare wood chips for adding to the coals. You’ll also learn the indirect heat method of barbequing, perfect for slow cooking roasts, whole chickens, vegetables, delicate fish fillets, and meats that require more time on the grill.

No need to use lighter fluid. Simply purchase a charcoal chimney and you'll never need to use lighter fluid again!
