GREEN ENERGY PROJECTS
Charcoal is a desirable fuel because it produces a hot, long-lasting, virtually smokeless fire. Combined with other materials and formed into uniform chunks called briquettes. According to the barbecue Industry Association, Americans bought 883,748 tons of charcoal briquettes in 1997.
Basic charcoal is produced by burning a carbon-rich material such as wood in a low-oxygen atmosphere. This process drives off the moisture and volatile gases that were present in the original fuel. The resulting charred material not only burns longer and more steadily than whole wood, but it is much lighter (one-fifth to one-third of its original weight).
In approximately 10 minutes, or when briquettes are predominately ashed over, spread briquettes evenly. Wait 5 minutes and being
Do not pour lighter fluid on burning briquettes barbecues
Never use gasoline to light fire
Do not cover flaming briquettes with grill lid
Make sure ashes are cool before discarding
Grill should be placed on a level surface
Place grill away from all flammable items (trees, overhangs, buildings, etc.)
Should more cooking time be needed, add regular charcoal briquettes
Close bag tightly after use
Burning charcoal inside can kill you. It gives off carbon monoxide, which has no odor. NEVER burn charcoal inside homes, vehicles or tents.
Never attempt to light using petrol, methylated spirits or our flammable liquids.
Never try to move a lit barbecue.
Never pour any flammable liquid, even proper barbecue lighting fuel onto a lit or warm barbecue-it can cause a dangerous flash flame.
Never plate hot ashes into a dustbin - wait until they are cold or douse with water before disposal.
Never try to cook over flames - it burns the outside of the food without properly cooking inside.
Never expose unopened charcoal bags to extreme temperature. Always store bags in a cool dry place.
Why Charcoal Briquettes?
Charcoal is costly than charcoal briquette.
Condensed and uniform size of charcoal briquettes, burn longer and with more consistency.
