The fire is lit - Manliness recovered thanks to the Almighty Charcoal!
As readers of my blog might remember, I recently suffered a severe blow to my male self-esteem ending up unable to light up a charcoal grill properly (post here). After hiding away the grill and trying to overcome the shame I recently decided to give it another try to see if I could overcome my difficulties performing in lighting a fire.
This time I armed myself with considerable amounts of paper, cardboard and ridiculous amounts of lighter gel, flammable cubes and other means enough to light up a medium-sized German Reichstag. Just to have something to blame, I also purchased brand charcoal in the form of 3kgs of "The Almighty Charcoal" and not the regular non-descript charcoal that I used last time. I am happy to report that I performed well this time with no awkward moments of faltering fire and need for words of encouragement!
I also noticed to my enjoyment that the Almighty Charcoal packaged has the color of the coal written on it and that the package I purchased was labeled as "Black" (see the picture). Next time, with my manliness secured, I might see if I can find any pink charcoal that I can purchase!
