By January 6, 2014

Follow me on:

Charcoal lighter fluid is one of the most dangerous substances in the average home. It creates noxious pollution, makes food taste bad, and presents a real health hazard. For this reason almost every authority on the subject as told backyard cooks to use an alternative method for lighting charcoal. Find out why this hasn't worked and why we need a better solution.

Hello Derrek:

Your blog caught my attention and I see you are well experienced in the enjoyment of BBQ’ing. I hope you can take a look at some “greencooking” ideas and appreciate them for what they wish to promote.

The name of my product and blog is “cleangreengrill” and it will be coming soon to a theatre near you!!! Just going thru the learning curve of the site building process….

I am promoting a new product on the market: It is a carbon neutral stainless steel grill and burner. 11x11x17 runs on pellets or wood. Burns all the smoke twice at 1100 degrees F. for very clean emissions. Cooking can be regulated with the small fan between 200 to 500 degrees F.

I would like to link to your site, can perhaps share affiliate sales if you have interest. Reason I wished to get in touch is, you do not need lighter fluid. One small piece of waxed milk carton paper, works amazingly for it. Cost per hour of fuel .26 cents…

Clean and Carbon Neutral Emissions
Clean and Lean, but absolutely tasty Green Cooking Ideas
Info on whats Causing carcinogen benzopyrene with our traditional ways of BBQ

Hope we can work together, might be a fresh subject of discussion and certainly will help to educate people about the 2 degrees/green house effects, we can all do something about in small ways….

This is the monitor for the Globe to watch, easier to understand than the Ice melting in the Artic.
Now would be a good time to start getting the word out, sorry I have not got particulars ready for you… thought I’d just send this hello and see if you can give me a hand.
