How can I prevent my food from tasting like starter fluid?

Liquid Starter

Liquid starters are very easy to use, but they can also add an unpleasant taste to your food. To avoid this problem, place a few coals on the fuel grate and sprinkle with liquid starter. Add the remaining coals in a pyramid pattern and light the treated coals. With only a few coals treated with the liquid starter, your food won't have a chemical taste.
