post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hi all, Do any of you Guys reuse the Charcoal from the Last Grilling. I save mine in a steel bucket and use them on the next BBQ grilling along with new Charcoal...

X2, I just leave the lump in my Kamado Kooker after each cook!

I find its a pain to relight. Seems to take FOREVER to get hot/burning. Maybe I'm doing something wrong.

Use a chimney starter. Put 1/3 to 1/2 new bricks in bottom then top off with the used ones. Take one paper towel and roll it up like a hot dog. Stuff half of it in a bottle of cooking oil so it is well soaked. I turn the bottle upside down for about 5 seconds. Light the dry end of the paper towel and set your chimney over it. Your new and used coals will be 'white hot' in no time.

Yep!

 

New on bottom, old on top.

 

You'll at least salvage a little use from the old ones.

 

Good luck and good smoking.

X3.

 

with a komodo you have to reuse it, you'd waste a lot of charcoal.

There are many roads that lead to the same destination. This is what I do: I sift out the ash by shaking the charcoal ring, add new to old, and dump lit on the unlit.
