Place a suitable amount of charcoal in the charcoal-starter and place creased paper underneath. Place the starter in the BBQ and light the paper. When all the charcoal glow they are placed enenly at the bottom of the BBQ. As the starter gets very hot when used it is very important that the handling is safe. As the only starter on the market, the Dancook starter is constructed with two rotating wooden handles; this enhances safety and eliminates the danger of burns. After 15 minutes the coals are ready.
