Default Temp to light coals, naturals and QLs?

ok so pondering stuff and i want to know what temp does it take to light the coals, not what temp they burn at, but what them it takes to to light (like how flash point of paper is 451*f).

i know QLs will be much lower and dont really require much time to light so i dont care much about that number but i was thinking about keeping coals in the oven to keep warm till i need them and/or to just use the oven to light them (have a flat top, dont have the extra money right now to get the extra burner, and really just want to now more for know what is possible)

thanks
-matt

I have no idea about the certain temperature. But, I know blow torches, gas stoves, and hot burners are hot enough to get naturals going. ANY of these methods will work.

ya i know all those will get them going but i had an idea to keep naturals in the oven to keep them just under the lighting temp (like 25-50* below) so then i just have to go and hit them with a torch for a few seconds for the 2nd/3rd/19th rounds

Ooo! I C!

Yeah one of my friends cooks them in the oven. I'm not too sure what temperature he lights them at but they take a friggen while to get going compared to the other methods lol

Not only that...Eek! Are you gonna use the oven for cooking food and stuff? I don't think that would be a great idea since the coals will probably get your oven all nasty.

i think if you dont use it to get them started they should start to smell but idk, and also if have one of the new fancy double ovens (havent gotten to see the apartment) i could always just use the small top one for coals and other non food baking needs

Not at all. He is not lighting them in the oven so there will be zero mess. He is trying to keep them close to the ignition temperature so that when he needs them they will ash over quickly, merely by hitting them with the stove top burner or lighter.

OO i c! Lol gotcha. Lol sorry I tend to read through threads without fully reading them sometimes. That's actually a good idea....But finding a good "warm up" temperature is gonna be tricky at first. I'm sure some good search online might help ya out

I highly highly recommend getting a single coil burner. Its 10$ and all you have to do is plug it in to the wall, and put the coal on there for a couple minutes and your good. You can find them at Walgreens, online, or wherever. I got mine from Walgreens, works like a charm, best investment for lighting coals out there.

yes i know with the coil burners, i have 2 of them open now online just dont want to spend the money and also im trying to find the most efficient way for mater rounds of coals that requires me to get up once and basically just the the coals.

i already have a mapp torch and a few extra pots i could use on my flat top, just playing around with the other ideas for extra rounds mostly

Found that naturals are the way to go, a QL is a lie. It still takes 10-15 to get a bowl going with them.
