Saturday we got together with some friends and family down at the lake for swimming and a cookout. The problem is one of our friends said they would cook up the food (hot dogs) and we would provide the meat.

We show up and the other friends didn't bring charcoal or any mthod of starting a fire. So my inlaws go back to their house and grab some Kingsford and some Petroleum Lighter Fluid. My FIL proceeds to squirt the living daylights out of the fluid and has flames about 2 feet tall.

I ended up being in charge of cooking the hot dogs over briquettes saturated with petroleum fluid. I havent used either in 4 years, since I've come to the light and use only lump with a chimney.

I feel really gross.

just squirt it directly on the meat and light it, sears the hell out of it and leaves the inside juicy. Rolling Eyes

IMHO, its not worth trying to educate FIL. Just go with flow. Its kinda like arguing with the wife, would I rather be right, or would I rather be happy. Easy answer. Tom

My room mate had a "BBQ" a few weeks ago when I was gone. Somebody brought a 22" Weber clone over. My room mate calls me and asks if he can use my chimney-sure. He then asks me how much lighter fluid to use and if he should soak down the charcoal before putting it in the chimney-sure if you want to build a bomb. I didnt give him any more advice than please dont burn the house down.

I was faced with having to do the same thing on Saturday.
Then i found a propane torch. I havent cooked over the big K stuff for years. It did the trick and all 15 bikers ate everything.

Growing up my father did not believe in propane, he was a lump charcoal man. Not even briquettes. He would saturate but not flood the lumps, and then let it sit for at least 5-10 minutes, maybe even 15, to let it soak in, before lighting. All I know is it seemed like an eternity, waiting for that fire to start, then the coals to get hot, then to cook that steak!!

Today when I see someone flood their charcoal with fluid and immediately drop a match on it...only to have the flame die out and see them squirt the rest of the fluid on the embers...I just shudder.

YEARS later when you could buy pre-soaked briquettes...well, I guess Dad was right all along.

I wish Dad were here now to see how into grilling and smoking I am, so we could REALLY enjoy the food (and beer) together.

I've started a support group for those addicted to using charcoal starter fluid. Folks who have relapses are encouraged to attend as well. We meet at the Rendezvous in Memphis, eat a lot of ribs and drink a lot of beer. Laughing

We really need a National Lighter Fluid Reform law put into place to save these poor souls who continue to ruin pounds & pounds of perfectly good tasty food....Please lets band together and stop this nonsense.
