To help kick off the grilling/barbecue season, I’m going to put up a series of outdoor cooking tips.
The first is this: The best, easiest, and MOST IMPORTANT thing you can do is to stop using lighter fluid!
Buy a chimney starter or use Weber’s lighter cubes. There’s not much worse you can do to your coals than dousing them with that nasty stuff, and this is coming from a recent convert! I didn’t used to think there was much difference until I honestly did some comparisons. You won’t believe how much cleaner your food will taste.
