Urban Grilling

Urban grilling with a Lotus Grill can be a fantastic experience, allowing you to enjoy delicious barbecue flavors even in small outdoor spaces like balconies, patios and even a yacht! Here are some tips to make the most of your Lotus Grill:

1. **Preparation is Key:**
- Before you start grilling, make sure your Lotus Grill is clean and free from any debris leftover from previous uses.
- Ensure that the charcoal basket is properly seated in the base and that the grill grate is securely in place.

2. **Use High-Quality Charcoal:**
- Invest in good quality charcoal, such as the Lotus Grill smokeless charcoal for the best grilling results. Lump charcoal is preferred as it burns cleaner and do not use briquettes with your Lotus Grill and the Lotus Grill charcoal is smokeless.
- You do not need to use lighter fluid or other chemical starters with your Lotus Grill. Instead, the Lotus Grill has a very convenient fan that will get the charcoal burning it just 4 minutes.                                                        -You will need the Lotus Grill gel to ignite the Lotus Grill. However, this is placed onto the ignition plate that the charcoal container rests on.  

3. **Proper Ventilation:**
- The Lotus Grill comes with a built-in fan that allows you to control the heat easily. Experiment with the fan settings to find the right temperature for your cooking needs.
- If you have a Lotus Grill hood or lid, remember to leave the grill's lid slightly ajar during the preheating process to allow for proper airflow.

4. **Quick and Even Cooking:**
- The Lotus Grill's design promotes even heat distribution, resulting in evenly cooked food. However, it's still a good idea to rotate your food occasionally for uniform cooking.
- Keep the grill lid closed as much as possible while cooking to retain heat and smoke flavor.

5. **Try Different Cooking Methods:**
- Aside from traditional grilling, you can also experiment with other cooking techniques like smoking or indirect grilling on your Lotus Grill. 
- Utilize the Lotus Grill's accessories like the lid, pizza stone, teppenyaki plate and fondue set, to expand your cooking repertoire.


6. **Clean-Up and Maintenance:**
- After each use, allow your Lotus Grill to cool down completely before cleaning. Remove the grill grate and wash it with warm, soapy water or simply put it in the dishwasher. Wipe down the rest of the grill with a damp cloth.
- Periodically check and clean the fan and charcoal basket to ensure optimal performance and longevity of your grill.

7. **Safety First:**
- Always place your Lotus Grill on a stable, heat-resistant surface away from flammable materials.  The outer surface of the Lotus Grill doesn´t get hot, so it can easily be placed on a table and there is no serious danger of your guests burning themselves. 
- Never leave your grill unattended while in use, and keep children and pets away from the grill area.                                                             

By following these tips, you can maximize your grilling experience with a Lotus Grill and enjoy delicious barbecue meals in your urban setting.
