It doesnt seem to matter what i do, I cant seem to keep my grill hot when i cook with charcoal. How do you guys do it? Lot of fluid, let it sit for a while? Could it be my grill? I always have a big fire and put my food on as soon as it goes out, and the food never gets done. Please explain in detail. Thanks

Try this:
  1. Pour in enough briquettes to make an even layer, one briquette deep.
  2. Then pile the briquettes in a high, cone-shaped pile.
  3. Douse them with starter fluid. Not too much. Just hit every coal you can see.
  4. Let the fluid soak in for a minute.
  5. Light the briquettes and let the flames burn out.
  6. Leave the briquettes stacked for 5 to 10 minutes until most of them have white ash on the edges. Go  by how they look, not by your watch.
  7. Using a long fork or tongs, spread the coals out in an even layer and give it several more minutes.
  8. Important! Make sure the vents on the bottom and top of the grill are open to allow air to the fire.
  9. The fire should be hot enough that you can not keep your hand above the grill. You are ready to cook.
If it wouldn't a been good
I wouldn't a done it.

Had a tough time converting from Charcoal - did it 7 years ago and it really depends on the grill you select. Go with a Weber Gas Grill - flavorizor bars that are standard really make the difference.

I cook on charcoal - now only once in a while and it is a pain! I re-vamped my weber gas grill this past spring - so it has another 7 years of life! Paid $350 new and use it almost daily - well worth the money spent and cheaper to operate than having to buy charcoal, fluid and matches.

Good luck!

Go wal-mart get a charcoal chimney . . . called different things at differet stores and you might have to wait till summer to buy one it's with the grilling stuff seasonaly it's looks like a giant aluminum travel mug and follow the directions that it comes with it start the coals for you and then you just dump them inthe grill no lighter fluid which i can't stand like mentioned above make sure you have are getting tot he fire.

here's one at Crate & Barrel take a look
