Share this tip
The indirect cooking method involves the Heat Beads® BBQ Briquettes being placed at the sides of the kettle barbecue. Read the full explanation here.
The direct cooking method requires the ashed over Heat Beads® BBQ Briquettes to be placed on the bottom grill directly under the food being cooked. Read the full explanation here.
If there are any Heat Beads® BBQ Briquettes left in the BBQ when I have finished cooking, can I reuse them?
Yes, provided the kettle or other BBQ has vents that can be closed, to cut off the air supply and allow the briquettes to extinguish naturally.
