How to achieve the temperature you need?

The BBQ temperature is determined by the amount of Heat Beads® BBQ Briquettes burning inside. Here are the quantities to follow to reach your desired heat (based on using a 57cm kettle BBQ):

For the Indirect Cooking Method:

– For a high heat, use approximately 3.5kg of briquettes, filling the baskets on each side of your kettle BBQ to heaped piles, or fill your Heat Beads® BBQ Chimney as high as you can.
– For a medium heat, use approximately 3kg of briquettes, filling the baskets on each side of your kettle BBQ to level, or fill your Heat Beads® BBQ Chimney to level with the top.
– For a low heat, use approximately 2.4kg briquettes, filling the baskets on each side of your kettle BBQ to just under level, or fill your Heat Beads® BBQ Chimney to three quarters full.

If you are using the Direct Cooking Method:

– For a high heat, use approximately 3kg of briquettes, or fill your Heat Beads® BBQ Chimney to level with the top.
– For a medium heat, use approximately 2.5kg of briquettes, or fill your Heat Beads® BBQ Chimney to just under level with the top.
– For a low heat, use approximately 2kg briquettes, or fill your Heat Beads® BBQ Chimney to just over half way.

This might seem tricky to begin with, but the great thing about using Heat Beads® BBQ Briquettes is that the heat can easily be controlled by closing over the vents on your BBQ to reduce the air flow, and therefore the temperature.
