how to light a charcoal fire

Set your grill on an even surface in an open area.

Remove the grates, and empty out any old ashes. Open the vents on the lid.

Place the smaller grate (charcoal grate) in the bottom of the grill.

Fill a large chimney starter with charcoal and place it on top of the charcoal grate. Loosely stuff a sheet of newspaper below the chimney starter, and light it with a match. The coals are ready when there are no longer any flames and the coals are covered with grey ash, in about 20 minutes.

Spread the hot coals evenly over the charcoal grate and put the grilling grate in place.

When you're finished grilling, put the lid on the grill and close the vents.
