While grilling and BBQ are popular outdoor cooking methods, hibachi grilling can add a unique touch to your outdoor cooking experience. And what’s more impressive than a hibachi fire volcano?
Time needed: 30 minutes
Here’s how to make one:
- Set up your hibachi grill
Start by setting up your hibachi grill in a safe and stable location. Make sure that it’s positioned away from any flammable materials, like trees or bushes.
- Create the volcano base
Fill the bottom of your hibachi grill with charcoal and light it. Once the charcoal is hot, use a metal skewer to create a mound of ash in the center of the grill. This will be the base of your volcano.
- Build the volcano
Use small pieces of kindling or twigs to create a cone-shaped structure around the ash mound. The kindling should be placed at an angle, so that it tapers up towards the center. Make sure that there’s a small hole in the top of the volcano for air to flow through.
- Light the volcano
Pour a small amount of oil over the kindling, and use a lighter or match to light the oil. The kindling should quickly catch fire and begin to create flames that shoot out of the top of the volcano.
- Add fuel
Once the initial flames die down, you can add more fuel to keep the fire going. Use small pieces of wood or charcoal to keep the flames going, and add them to the center of the volcano as needed.
With a bit of practice and patience, you’ll be able to create an impressive hibachi fire volcano that’s sure to impress your guests. Just make sure to always exercise caution when working with open flames and hot coals. Happy grilling!
