Start the fire a few hours before you plan to eat on the first day, probably in the mid-afternoon. The rocks need several hours of steady blazing fire to heat up and the best grilling happens towards the end of the burn when you are down to a tremendous bed of coals and glowing rocks.

Start the fire just like you might start a campfire. Then feed it logs to keep it going strong until you have a beautiful bed of coals.
