Staring the fire inside the Grill 101:
Now looking inside the grill you should have a TOP Rack Rail and some have and extra lower RACK that the Charcoals rest one top. Before lighting look for a HOLE in the bottom of the Grill as this is where the cooking hot oils from meats come through. Make sure to read your grills Instructions. Make sure whatever you have on the ground under the grill want stain bricks, wood while grilling.
Now were ready to fire up the grill, Make sure your a good 10-foot away from the House and no over handing trees, wood or anything that could burn.
Place the Charcoal Chimney Starter inside the Grill with one sheet of newspaper stuffed into bottom and Charcoals on top. Light paper without lifting up from grill. WAIT UNTIL ALL CHARCOALS are showing white ash "ALL OF THEM"
Once the paper has burned away and charcoals are ready empty and add some more new Charcoals on top of them. Place the TOP RACK back onto Grill which has already been oiled up with cooking oil. Close lied and fully open the little flow on top of Grill top so air and heat can fully heat up the coals.
