    It seems Arlo’s quick coals ignition process no longer comes as a surprise to Janis…

    Janis has seen it done. Along with Arlo some of us have indeed survived stupid things we do to ourselves, oftentimes repeatedly.

    Must be common practice for Arlo to be generous with the lighter fluid.

    After all the years of grilling you’d think Arlo would know better. Dementia kicking in?

    The guy behind my childhood home used gasoline to start his charcoal, because it was cheaper than lighter fluid. Getting his garage door repainted, on the other hand…

    Arlo is well done. Janis didn’t have to grill him.

    Weber chimney, one piece of newspaper to get the charcoal going. I haven’t bought lighter fluid in 30 years. I save the advertisements dropped in the driveway once a week, since we don’t seem to have newspapers anymore.

    A friend taught me how to best use a chimney starter. Take a double sheet of newspaper, twist it into a corkscrew and curl it into a circle inside the starter. Repeat with a second sheet. You wind up with a doughnut of newspaper with a hole in the middle to allow air to flow through and encourage burning. Works great.

    When we used charcoal I used to rearrange the coals by hand. My wife didn’t like it, even though I assured her I dropped live coals quickly.

    I use a cotton ball, petroleum jelly in the bottom of chimney, add my charcoal and use my gobspark to start it. Works anywhere, regardless of temperature. I use the same method for starting a wood fire, loading some kindle on top of the cotton ball saturated in Vaseline. One spark and it starts.
