WARNING!! Never pour any flammable liquid, or even proper Barbecue Lighting
Fluid onto a lit or warm Barbecue – it can cause a dangerous Flash Flame.
Light your Barbecue following the instructions on your charcoal pack.
However, because of the heat retention of the fire bricks, you will find you
need less charcoal to cook. If cooking for a long period, preheat top-up
coals on the corner of the Barbecue and pull across to cooking area when
hot. This will keep your cooking temperature more consistent.
NOTE: Because of the temperature changes, cracks will appear in the surface and joints of your barbecue during the season. It will therefore be necessary to repaint the Barbecue at the end of each season using any exterior masonry paint. It is advisable to protect your barbecue with a cover or a tarpaulin sheet during the winter.
