What’s the best way to light Kingsford® Charcoal?
For regular Kingsford® charcoal and regular Kingsford® charcoal with Mesquite or Hickory, add 1.6 fluid ounces of Kingsford® Charcoal Lighter per pound of charcoal used once added to your pile of regular Kingsford® briquets, light pile immediately. When the briquets are mostly covered in gray ash, that is your cue to start cooking. Never add Kingsford® Charcoal Lighter to hot coals or fire.
For Kingsford® Match Light® charcoal and Kingsford® Match Light® charcoal with Mesquite, just light the briquets! You don’t need to add Kingsford® Charcoal Lighter Fluid to Kingsford® Match Light® products. Just light your pile with a Kingsford® match in several places. It takes 10 minutes for the briquets to be covered in ash, and that is your cue to begin cooking.
