Let There be Fire


Let There be Fire

Tired of going through the hassle of making coal and charcoal that you use for barbequeing ignite? Have you tried everything that your human powers can conjure up? Is a trip to the witch doctor or a shaman the only thing you haven’t done just to ignite the pesky coal and the troublesome charcoal? Well here’s something that we’re sure that will lift you up to the barbequeing heaven…or so they promise.

How many times have we heard this undying line that we see in home shopping channels? And how many times have we tried in vain to use one of these worthless junks? Too many times and too often as well.

Since the dawn of man’s early encounter with fire, he was fascinated with the idea that he no longer needed to eat anything raw. Since then he kept the fire burning. But then one fateful day fire went out and man’s society is in total chaos and darkness. So far fire has kept him warm, safe and with food that is appropriate for him to eat. And when fir went out he had no recollection of how it started.


Man then tried different things to start fire again. He tried rubbing two sticks together, he tried catching lightning and he even tried blowing on the ashes of what used to be fire, still no success. And then man was struck with a different idea and the birth of the flint happened. The flint stone that he first used was successful to create fire and because of his discovery he was able to come across with an invention, barbecue. Because of man’s discovery of a way to create fire he was also able to cook meat in a way that we now call barbecue.

So barbecue ignitors are as important as the meat that we are going to cook. With the proper tools to start a decent flame we would not be able to have a decent open fire to cook our chops, steaks and kebabs. There are no flame grills or stove top grills that are coming out of the market today but the character and flavor of a flame grilled steak cannot be duplicated by stove top grills or whatever.

So to keep the integrity of the art of barbequeing, we need to know the tools that we need to keep the fire burning. Here are some of the ways to get a decent fire going for all your barbecue needs. Coals or charcoal, either of the two would make a good heat source for our fire just remember that they should always be dry. A catalyst or lighter fluid ( lighter usually does the trick) a good serving of the stuff on your coal would make igniting it much easier.

And last but not least, the ignitor. For those outdoorsman type flints are quite essential. A flint is the same thing that we have in our Zippo lighters. Electronic ignitors and lighters are also useful. Just remember that these are not water proof. Unlike the reliable flint, we need to make sure that the electronic lighter or the same is out of the water and be kept dry always.

And if you’re the kind that likes to do things with a little flair, you can always use a flamethrower. That beats everything!

“He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth; and wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man’s heart.”
Psalm 104:14,15

“The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season. Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.”
Psalm 145:15,16

“Do not join those who drink too much wine or gorge themselves on meat, for drunkards and gluttons become poor, and drowsiness clothes them in rags.”
Proverbs 23:20-21

“I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life. And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.”
Ecclesiastes 3:12,13

“Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.”
Matthew 6:25-32

“All wild animals and birds and fish will be afraid of you, God told him; ‘for I have placed them in your power, and they are yours to use for food, in addition to grain and vegetables. But never eat animals unless their life-blood has been drained off.”
Genesis 9:2-4

“It is because you must do everything for the glory of God, even your eating and drinking.”
I Corinthians 10:31

“Intelligence is something we are born with. BBQ’ing is a skill that must be learned”
Edward de Bono

“It is better to have burnt and lost, then never to have barbecued at all”
William Shakespeare

“Meat products should always be thoroughly cooked. You can have any colour providing it’s not black”
Henry Ford

“BBQ’ing is one percent inspiration, and ninety-nine percent perspiration”
Thomas Edison

Winston Churchill
