Colored leaves, warm scarves and woolen mittens, plus the sudden smell of lit-up fireplaces are all signs that Fall has finally arrived. Or perhaps a more substantial clue is that practically every man in site is suddenly rooted to the seat of his sofa (or standing off in the lot of his favorite teams’ stadium) celebrating American tradition. But what would a football game be without at least a little snack action?
And with the Baja BBQ firepack you can easily light up your old summer grill and make any number of culinary delights (bite-sized burgers, mixed veggies kabobs, free-range chicken wings ... the list goes on). Basically the Baja consists of packaging made from 100 percent recycled and biodegradable paper pulp plus a 2-pound piece of lump charcoal, so it lights practically as soon as a match hits it. Even better, it also has an integrated chimney system so coals will get all warm and toasty in only a span of 15-20 minutes (without the use of lighter fluid!).
