Lighting the grill

I just got a weed burner to light my grill. It is not necessary but it is nice. I was lighting my grill with a Map gas torch. This would put my hand directly over the coals while holding a tank of gas. While most likely it would not be a problem but you can not be to careful. This new way places me farther away from the coals. It also allows me to light the coals quicker and more evenly.

Some other ways to light your grill are using fire stater cubes.

Charcoal chimney starter.

A looftlighter

An electric lighter.

Or just a paper towel soaked in vegetable oil. Then lit with a lighter while resting in the coals.
