Re: Electric Hot Plate
I have a hot plate like the one you are looking at. It works, but it is slow when compared to a coil style burner. If that is all you can get, try pointing a fan on the lowest setting at the coals after about five minutes of heat.. It helps.
With the heat set to 'high', I get natural coals lit up in about 10-15 minutes, depending on the brand of coal. CH Nats light the quickest for me.
