Cooking with Charcoal
There are some real advantages and some
disadvantages to cooking with charcoal. The big advantage is that charcoal has
an indefinite storage life and is relatively inexpensive. You can buy a bag of
charcoal, put it in a plastic container, and store it in your garage for years.
There is a difference between a Dutch oven and a
cast iron pot. A Dutch oven has a flat top for the charcoal briquettes to sit
on. It has feet so that briquettes can also go under the oven.
Briquettes and be hard to
light. More so if it is windy. Most people buy charcoal starter.
Pictures above is one that willl light your briquettes with newspaper. It
is easy to store. You can also use lighter fluid directly on the briquettes, but
as a petroleum product, it will get old.
