How to light a BBQ using a Heat Beads® BBQ Chimney

For a fast and simple way to get your BBQ started use a Heat Beads® BBQ Chimney.

  • Watch the video (above) or read the instructions below.
  • Fill Heat Beads® BBQ Chimney to the rim with Heat Beads® BBQ Briquettes. Light 3 Heat Beads® Firelighters cubes then place the BBQ Chimney directly over the firelighters.
  • The Heat Beads® BBQ Briquettes will ash over faster than normal by using the BBQ Chimney, reaching the most effective temperature in approximately 30-40 minutes for a full chimney. Briquettes are ready to use once they are covered in a light coloured ash.
  • Once Heat Beads® BBQ Briquettes are fully ashed over, carefully pour the briquettes from the BBQ Chimney onto the fire grill or into baskets/rails. For safety, always ensure you wear BBQ mitts.
  • It is important that the Heat Beads® BBQ Briquettes be poured into the BBQ as soon as they are ashed over. Leaving the ashes in the Heat Beads® BBQ Chimney for prolonged periods will reduce the life of the device.
