MORE ABOUT BBQ FUEL

 

The Weber kettle is the best known BBQ and is traditionally known for indirect cooking. This means that the food is not placed over the BBQ Fuel briquettes but between them, with an aluminium drip tray centred underneath.

This method requires the lid to be on the BBQ with all vents open. This method is used for roasting, including cooking a ham. Heat is controlled by the number of briquettes you place in the BBQ.

How many BBQ Fuel briquettes are sold in a bag? 

14kg - about 60 | 10kg about 150.

 

What are the base ingredients for Hot Shots BBQ Fuel briquettes?

Our BBQ Fuel briquettes are made from Char, which is a derivative from brown coal, and silica.

 

Where can I buy Hot Shots BBQ Fuel briquettes in Australia?

Australian consumers can buy Hot Shots BBQ Fuel from Bunnings, other hardware Stores, local garden Stores and even selected Grocery outlets.

HOW MANY BBQ FUEL BRIQUETTES CAN I USE IN A BBQ?

It depends on what temperature you want to achieve. Bear in mind, you only want to get your BBQ to a certain temperature, then let the heat be retained for cooking purposes, so long as the air vents are open to allow for air flow. Hot Shots BBQ Fuel can hold the heat for a good few hours without topping up. We rate the heat level in three categories:

 

High heat – more than 25 each side.

Medium heat - around 20 each side.

Low heat – less than 15 each side.

Low heat – less than 15 each side.

CAN I REUSE HOT SHOTS BBQ FUEL BRIQUETTES?

The answer is yes, though there are a few things to be wary of. As soon as your food is cooked on the BBQ, close off the air vents and extinguish the heat from the BBQ Fuel briquettes. We would recommend transferring them to a non-combustible metal container to cool down, like a metal bucket.

 

Use either a pair of tongs or a metal basket (similar to one used for deep frying) so that any unusable ash residue can be separated easily by giving the basket a shake. Storing BBQ Fuel briquettes in a dry place should be done to avoid moisture build up, before you use them again.

 

Note also: reused BBQ Fuel briquettes may not give you the same hot temperatures as you would from newer ones, in which case just supplement them with those new ones to get to the desired temperature.

HOW DO I PLACE BBQ FUEL IN A BBQ?

For this question, we will assume you are using a kettle charcoal BBQ like a Weber or Jumbuck model. In this example, our BBQ Fuel comes into its own during indirect cooking, as mentioned above.

 

Once your BBQ Fuel is hot enough, place your grill tray onto the BBQ, and your selected meat/s onto the grill in a central position, then cover it with the BBQ lid, ensuring that the air vents are open to allow for air flow.
