Hands off of gasoline and alcohol to light a grill. The best choice is solid or liquid safety lighters. If you don’t have it at home, there is a simple trick. Simply cut up the bottom of an egg carton and place the little “hat” with the pointed end facing up in the grill. Place the charcoal on top and light the egg cartons. Done!
It works even better with a charcoal starter. Light a wood chip or firelighter cube with some newspaper on the grill and place the charcoal starter filled with charcoal on top. Let physics run its course and after 15–20 minutes the, white hot coal can be evenly distributed on the grill.
