Everyday Briq 101
1. Open the bag then immediately place the Briq into the drawer with the notched corner on the Briq lined up with the notch in the Briq pan.

Hot Tip: Briqs give off a fierce heat as they are firing up. To maximize the heat when grilling at 600-700°F, leave the lid open just for the first 5 minutes, then close until the grill reaches the target temperature.
Cool Tip: If you want to stabilize at a lower temperature, keep the lid open for 10 minutes until the desired temperature is reached, then close to quickly stabilize the temp at 500-600°F.
Favorite Recipes with the Everyday Briq
Spark Techniques: French Fried–Style grilled Potatoes
Treat your taters right! One thing we love about the Everyday Briq is that you can cook lots of foods in stages since the burn time is long. For example, after you grill your meats for a barbecue, make the fries on the grill. These are seriously crave-worthy!
Grill the Whole meal: Everyday briq inspiration
Mid-Summer Cook Out: Grill corn in husk, then sear your steaks. For dessert, grill some peaches while the briq is still hot.
Everyone’s Favorite Fish Tacos: Grill the fish and tortillas -- even some jalapeños and avocado for toppings.
Asian Grill: Get some flanken-cut short ribs to make Korean-style barbecue ribs with grilled scallions.
Vegetarian Feast: Make an herb sauce to brush on tofu planks and a range of vegetables.
Ultimate Steak Dinner: Par-cook some potatoes and slice in half; preheat a small cast iron pan on your Spark; add the potatoes to the pan and sear your steaks alongside on the grates; after a flip of the steaks, add oiled and seasoned asparagus to the grill until cooked through.
