1. Stack Briquets in a pyramid. Do not overfill your grill. Use about 4 lb. Light immediately. 2. Light charcoal. Leave grill uncovered. Do not use lighter fluid or an electric or chimney-style starter. Stand back after lighting. Flames will die out. 3. Spread briquets in a single layer when covered in ash (in about 10 minutes). Begin grilling. Always create a tight seal to close bag after each use. For Your Safety: Never cover flaming briquets with a grill lid. Covering flaming briquets may result in a flare-up when lid is removed. Use water to control excessive flames. Do not light any part of the bag. Barbecue away from flammable items, overhangs and trees. Do not add match light charcoal once fire has been lit. Add Kingsford original charcoal briquets if extra charcoal is needed. Make sure ashes are cold before discarding. Do not use in water smoker grills. Store in a cool, dry place. Pull from end on front of bag.
