Tips for lighting OFYR, Plancha or grill on fire

Lighting a wood-fired OFYR , Kamado , Green Egg , plancha (or outdoor grill) requires a slightly different approach than a gas-fired BBQ/Plancha.

Here are the steps to safely light a wood-fired BBQ, OFYR, Kamado, Green Egg or plancha using Ecolighter:

  1. Ensure that the wood-burning plancha or OFYR is used outdoors on a flat, stable surface, away from flammable materials.

  2. Stack dry, clean and well-ventilated firewood in the firebox or under the plancha. Make sure there is enough space between the logs for good airflow.

  3. Place one or more Ecolighter firelighters under the firewood in the fire box. Distribute them evenly to promote even combustion.

  4. Light the firelighters with a long lighter or match. Be careful when lighting and keep sufficient distance.

  5. Let the fire burn quietly and let the firewood heat for a few minutes before you start cooking on the plancha.


Why use Ecolighter?

  1. Environmentally friendly : Ecolighter firelighters are made from natural materials and contain no harmful chemicals, making them an environmentally friendly option for lighting a wood-burning plancha.

  2. Safety : By using Ecolighter firelighters you avoid the need to use flammable liquids such as fire starter gel, which can be dangerous when used on a wood-burning plancha.

  3. Efficiency : Ecolighter firelighters provide a consistent (20-25 minutes) and long lasting flame (up to 500 degrees), making it easier to ignite the wood in the firebox quickly and evenly.

By following these steps and using Ecolighter firelighters, you can light your wood-fired plancha in a safe, environmentally friendly and effective way.

Remember to always follow the instructions on the firelighter packaging and take the necessary precautions to avoid accidents.
