Use (1) firestarter per 2-3 lbs of charcoal briquets or lump charcoal. Arrange a layer of charcoal on bed of grill. Place a firestarter in the middle of the charcoal. Add additional charcoal on top of the base and the firestarter, forming a small pyramid. Firestarter may be fully covered by charcoal. Keep the firestarter end exposed to allow for lighting access. With a long-stemmed lighter, light the end of the firestarter. When charcoal is covered in gray ash, spread evenly and begin cooking.
