    hello! I live in Portugal, and i am starting now my food storage. It´s dificult for me because we don´t have
    many of the itens that you talk about, it´s because of the culture…. But you give me many ideas about how to start and to teatch in the church our sisters to do it as well.
    Thank you

    We don't use any charcoal fluid with our chimney starter. Here's a link I found that describes how my hubby, our resident grill master, uses our chimney starter. 🙂 http://www.virtualweberbullet.com/chimney.html

    It would depend on a lot of factors. If you have any other type of
    emergency cooking items (solar oven, propane grill, etc.) and how much you'd
    be using for a year depending on those items.

    Crystal, Thanks for the video. Tomorrow I am teaching 11yr. scouts how to use charcoal for cooking. My only question is how long or approximately how long does it take for the coals to come to a good temp to add more coals? And once you have added coals how long will it take?

    It takes 30-40 minutes to get the coals warm and after you add the new coals
    you can begin grilling.
