Lighting charcoal with Royal Oak Lighter Fluid
Step 1: Arrange charcoal into a small pyramid.
Forming a pyramid or pile will help increase coal-to-coal contact and help the fire spread.
Step 2: Add All-Natural Lighter Fluid to the pyramid of unlit charcoal and light immediately.
Carefully apply lighter fluid over the charcoal. Use 1.6 fluid ounces per pound of charcoal. Light immediately after applying fluid. The lighter fluid will burn off cleanly in a few minutes leaving the charcoal fully ignited.
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.
