coffee cans work. Here is one method rfrom the ole 'net.



"Cut out the bottom and use them as a fire starter in your grill. Place the can in the grill bottom, raise one side slightly using a small stick, put in crumpled up newspaper, add charcoal, put a little starter fluid on the charcoal, and light from the bottom. You will have white hot coals in just a few minutes. "

Nothing beats good old dry leaves and sticks of wood ;)

If you *think* you can do something, or that you cannot, either way, *you are right*

Yeah, I'm not sure. When I tried it nothing happened at all, I couldn't get them to light, smoke or anything.

Maybe it depends on the type of cork and the humidity of the area... around here, all that would do would make your barbecue into a smoking gadget.

I had read in Real Simple magazine that you could keep used wine bottle corks in a jar of rubbing alcohol to use as fire starters. I tried it--it didn't work.

The people that own a party store next to my Dad's house, they give him their used fryer oil from their fried chicken. He uses that to light his grill and his bonfires. He says the fryer oil adds something to the flavor of his grilled meat.

Instead of using lighter fluid to light your charcoal grill,try using cooking oil. It will smoke a little while, but it does not smell as bad as lighter fluid, and your food will taste better.

Take a paper towel and wad it up. Soak it with
cooking oil and place it in the charcoal. Light it!
