1. Stack briquets in a pyramid. Do not overfill your grill. Use no more than 3 lb. (about 40 briquets). Light immediately. 2. Light with match in several places. Stand back after lighting. Do not use lighter fluid or an electric or chimney-style starter. Leave grill uncovered. 3. Spread briquets & cook. Flames will die out. In about 10 minutes, when briquets are covered in ash, spread evenly and begin cooking. 4. Always close bag tightly after use.
Always refer to the actual package for the most accurate information
