Grilling Tip

...that I discovered late in the summer. If you have a charcoal grill (I'm a charcoal man) that has grates you can raise and lower, and a front gate sort of thing, like above, instead of using starter fluid to get the charcoals going, use newspaper. Keep feeding newspapers in that open area under the grates until you feel heat coming from the coals. You'll get a fire going faster, and probably the less starter fluid you use, the better.

Second, slightly more stupid tip. I was playing around like an idiot and stuck a piece of cold pizza in that open area after the coals got going. Holy shnert! It's like a crazy hot broiler and oven in there. So it was pretty cool.
