The Quick Start Grill makes it easy to start the BBQ

In theory, grilling should be the simplest method of cooking. What could be more straightforward than placing your steak over a fire? In reality, there are some obstacles to overcome. Perhaps the most annoying is the task of getting your charcoal briquettes to light. Instead of messing around with lighter fluid or gas, you might want to upgrade to the Quick Start Grill. This amazing BBQ has a built-in heating element, meaning you can start grilling in just six minutes.

What is the easiest way to light a BBQ?

Charcoal briquettes may be a great fuel source for cooking, but they ignite properly only when they reach 660°F. The great part is that it burns hot and lasts plenty long enough for everyone to get some patties. But you usually have to use fire-lighting fuels. Aside from the hassle and expense, pouring lighter fluid isn’t the safest activity.

Once you have finished cooking, the Quick Start Grill makes it easy to stop the fire. You simply attach the lid and close off the vents to cut the oxygen supply, killing the flames.

Having extinguished the charcoal, you can leave your half-burned briquettes inside the grill until the next time you fancy a BBQ. This saves money on fuel and reduces carbon emissions from your grill.

“With the Quick Start Grill, the charcoal is ready to cook in 6 to 7 minutes. It starts uniformly, so all the surface area of the cooking grid can be utilized for convenient cooking. Since it saves time, you can have a fully-cooked charcoal grilled steak in 15 minutes without the taste of lighter fluid.” —Quick Start on Kickstarter

That heating element is a stroke of genius. Instead of spending ages messing around with dangerous fuel, you can get on with cooking something delicious.

What We Want to See

Because the heating element is electric, you do need to be near an outlet to use this grill. At some point, we would love to see a portable version!


You can buy the Quick Start Grill from the company website for $109 USD.
