1. Build a mound of charcoal that starts just below the holes in the side of the fire box with the peak of the mound just below the top of the fire ring.
2. Build the mound with large chunks at the bottom and smaller ones as you build it. Dumping charcoal directly into the fire box will allow small pieces to block the air holes in the fire pan, which can prevent you from reaching grilling and searing temperatures.
3. Charcoal can be relit 2-3 times for multiple cookings. Use the ash tool to stir the used charcoal, so the ashes will drop through the pan. Add 1/3 new charcoal to the existing charcoal and build a new mound. This works well for roasting and grill temperatures. A full fire box of only fresh charcoal is recommended for smoking and searing temperatures.
Fire starter Cubes are one of the quickest ways to start your grill. They are odorless, smokeless and environmentally safe. Each cube burns up to 1300°F for 8-12 minutes to ensure that you're ready to cook in 15 minutes.
1.Light the charcoal with a fire starter cube or chimney starter, electric starter or other method.
2.Open the bottom draft door and leave the dome up.
3.Wait 8-10 minutes for the charcoal to build a small bed of embers.
4.Close the dome, open the top vent fully and adjust the airflow as needed as you near the target temperature.
