1st couple of cooks do easy stuff like burgers and/or sausage links to learn the cooker.

For lighting I use denatured alcohol. I buy a gallon at a time and put it in a clear condiment bottle. Pile in the lump inject a ounce or two of alcohol and light. No off taste, works a treat and is inexpensive.
