Don't BBQ Naked!

 

If you have a charcoal grill, the easiest way to light your briquettes is to put them in a chimney, with a tuna can (or similar) of methylated spirits under it. 

 

Burns cleanly, no chemical spell of firefighters, or ash from newspapers. 

 

 

You just pour meths directly into the tuna can and light?

 

I was thinking of stuffing cloth into the can and then adding some meths.

I assume one of my idiot brothers-in-law had been operating it like that too...

 

Hmmm, hissing gas ... do they still smoke cigarettes? wink

 

 

Sadly not ;-D

Directly into the can.

 

I'd definitely want to avoid the chemical spell of firefighters - at least until the spell was checked.  It sounds unsafe.

Anyone got advice on the best placement of wood chunks (for smoking) in a kamado for a long low and slow cook? I'm having trouble keeping a nice thin blue smoke going.

Depends how you are arranging the coals. If using the snake method then on top of the coals but only in the first half of the snake. Minion method is a bit harder to stagger the chunks but basically the meat isn't going to absorb any more smoke after 3 or 4 hours so add accordingly and don't bother after that (or if you are wrapping). Don't use too much either, it's hard to under-smoke something but you certainly can oversmoke it... Use good sized chunks too over chips as they will burn slower and more evenly

If you have a gas BBQ with a side burner/wok cooker attachment thing, just use that. Quick and easy

 

I've used dryer lint before :)
