Adding more charcoal to your grill is a cinch! Whether you need to refuel or just want to add more heat, here’s how to do it.
- First, make sure the grill is completely cooled down before you start.
- Then, use a poker or long-handled tongs to spread the coals out in an even layer. If you’re adding new charcoal, place it on top of the old coals.
- Finally, close the lid and let the grill heat up for about 10 minutes. You’re good to go!
Best Methods to Add more Charcoal to Grill While Cooking:
1.Use an electric fan to stoke the fire and add more oxygen, which will help the charcoal burn hotter and faster.
2. Add a small amount of water to the coals if you want to create more smoke for flavour.
3. Use a chimney starter to quickly add new coals to the grill without having to remove the old ones.
4. Add wood chips or chunks to the charcoal for more smoke flavour.
5. Bury the new coals in the old ones if you want to extend your cooking time.
6. Use an aluminium pan filled with water to catch any stray sparks from the fire.
So, if you are looking to add a bit more to your grill while cooking and don’t want to go out and buy another bag, just use some of the hot coals from your last cookout. This way, you can save yourself a trip to the store and have plenty of charcoal grills under 100$ for your next grilling session. Do you have any other tips for adding more coal to a grill?
