How To Start a Bbq Fire

Starting the perfect barbeque fire using a charcoal grill can be quite a challenge. To help you kick-start your party, we have drafted up some useful tips.
A normal barbeque party will require approximately 6 kg of charcoal, but it also depends on the duration of your party. As it takes time to achieve the perfect fire, it is advisable start your fire about 1 to 1 and a half hours before your party.
    STEP 1
    Always roll out a layer of aluminum foil sheet at the base of the fire for heat retention and to make cleaning up easy. Place some fire starters in the centre formation of Charcoal.
    STEP 2
    Stack up a few more pieces of charcoal on top of the base to form a bridge formation, allowing ventilated space in between. Then light up the fire starters.
    STEP 3
    Allow 15 to 20 minutes for the bride formation to catch fire. Put in more charcoal as the flames spread.
    Spread the charcoal out evenly when all the charcoal has caught fire. You can improve the flames by fanning the lit charcoal or by blowing with your mouth. A charcoal fire usually takes 30-45 minutes to reach the proper cooking heat after lighting it.
    When it is ready for barbequing, the barbeque pit should be flameless. Have fun experimenting and enjoy your party.
