If you are not familiar with charcoal grills, then you may be wondering how to light them. To light a charcoal grill, you can either use charcoal lighter fluid or a blow torch. But remember, charcoal lighter fluid imparts a sour taste to your grilled food. If you’re going to use a blow torch, you’ll need to get the grill bars and air very hot before lighting the coals.
To choose the right charcoal grill, consider your cooking style. Are you planning to cook a lot of meat or prefer a low-and-slow BBQ? If so, choose a charcoal grill that has plenty of room for coals and a good amount of space to put food on it. Also consider how you want your grill to ventilate and seal so that the smoke doesn’t escape. Lastly, the ventilation and ash catchers should be removable for easier cleaning. Charcoal grills with folding shelves make storage easier.
In addition to a durable surface, charcoal grills should also have a wide opening for easier cleaning and topping up. A Weber Q-Series charcoal grill comes with an enameled porcelain surface, ash catcher, and precise temperature controls. The Weber Q-style lid has an adjustable space between the cooking grates, and an ash-catcher that’s easily removable. It also comes with a cast-iron cooking grid and an adjustable side drawer for charcoal.
