What happened, was your charcoal damp? Did you manage to get it lit okay?

I went inside and did the meat in a pan on the stove and my serenity was restored. :?

As to damp charcoal - I don't know. Is that possible? That's kinda why I started this thread - I don't know if briquettes will get damp and not work worth a crap. :?


Regardless, I JUST got back from Ontario Gas BBQ. (holy mackeral what a place!) I managed to walk out only buying a thermometer, the Weber chimney starter and a bag of Dragon's Breath charcoal. My wallet thanked me when I got home. :lol:

I'll update on how the chimney starter works out.


Thanks for the help so far everyone. :)
