Lighting Royal Oak MinitLite Charcoal Briquets
Step 1: Arrange charcoal into a small pyramid.
Arrange no more than 3 pounds into a pyramid. Forming a pyramid or pile will help increase coal-to-coal contact and help the fire spread.
Step 2: Light the charcoal. Light the charcoal immediately in several places.
Never use lighter fluid, gasoline, electric starter, or chimney-style starter. DO NOT COVER THE GRILL UNTIL READY TO COOK.
Step 3: Charcoal is ready when covered with gray ash.
In approximately 10 to 15 minutes or when the charcoal is predominately ashed over, spread evenly. Wait 5 minutes and begin cooking.
