Hi Jojosunshine, there is no need to purchase the Weber Rapidfire Chimney.
The auto ignition lights the coals on fire automatically with the push of a button and this grill comes with charcoal baskets that you fill with charcoal and sit right on top where the flame lights the coals.

Answer: 
This is a charcoal grill and does not use propane to cook. The propane bottle is only there to help you light your charcoal so you don't have that light fluid taste to your food.

Answer: 
It needs at least 5 mins if standard briquettes without lighter fluid are used. Be sure to use extreme caution if you add any lighter fluid though. Lighter ready briquettes are great and only need a min with the gas starter.

Answer: 
2 to 4 minutes on high, then let the coals take over. Be patient, let the coals turn white. Control the air flow the wider you have the vent open on the bottom the hotter and faster the coals will burn. Once the coals are white close the bottom vent about half way and open the top vent all the way.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 39 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Grill !!! Simple to assemble. It has the same quality as you would expect from any Weber product. For the price a cover should be included. It could use a little better construction/quality to he plastic wheels but it works great on the wood deck. Table top is proportionate to the grill and cleans easy. When the lid is in the holder it crowds the grill making it difficult to reach all around. It could use an actual storage bin for little things like a lighter, cooking gloves, apron and putting the cover and utensils away when not needed. The charcoal holders, thermometer, timer, ash catcher and charcoal bin are awesome. The gas starter is perfect and no lighter fluid is required!!! Which means no more expesive charcoal required!!! June 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The Best Of The Best This is the best grill you can buy. Food taste great and is so easy to use. I had bought a charcoal grill ($30 cheap thing) and it was ok. This year we decide to buy a grill that would last. So went down to the local Home-Depot saw it, beg the wife, and got. The difference was day and night. You really do get what you pay for. That was only one of two things I didn't care for about this grill. It is expensive but, the quality and performance does justify the cost. The other thing I didn't care for is the lid holder its ok for small meals but if your cooking for a gang of people(birthday parties and such) it just seams in the way. April 12, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Look no further, this is the grill you want. As they say you get what you pay for, yes its charcoal and a little pricey. But let me tell you it is no comparison to the big juicy rib eye steak I just had. The features, are well designed and work as they should, example the ignitor to start the coals just turn it on push the button and in 2 to 4 minutes coals are started shut it off and let the coals turn white and your ready. The ash catcher keeps clean up to a minimum due to the well design internal ash sweeper built inside. This grill is an excellent choice, and is built to last if proper care is taken. If you purchase this grill don't forget to buy a cover, Weber makes one designed for this particular grill. May 14, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very well built and good design Assembly was a little challenging as my balcony is only 4 feet by approx. 20 feet. However, it took me under 1 hour and that's including getting the tools and discarding the packaging for recycling. Here are a few things I would like to be available with this BBQ: 1. Larger cooking grates: the one provided are ok for general BBQ, but to sear a steak, I would have preferred having larger grills. 2. The coal container only open on one side. I wished it was possible that it can open to the front so that this BBQ can be used on narrow balconies like mine. May 11, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this grill! Assembly was straight-forward and I've used it just about every other day since I've owned it (about a month or so now). I can't say enough about how the grill performs - it's a charcoal grill, for crying out loud. But this with the Weber iPhone app has allowed me to really experiment with my grilling techniques as well as hone the smoking skills. After my gas grill burned it's last flame, I chose this over another gas grill because the maintenance should be lower, and the accessories list is much greater, offering more flexibility over the gas solution. April 29, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great product, except for the parts that don't fit Love the grill. Unfortunately, many of the parts/screws did not fit together properly. The ash pan was bent and deformed in the box and I had to reshape in order to fit. In the final stages of the assembly the pre-drilled holes to connect the arms to the side flanges to the table top didn't line up properly. One of the screws stripped and then broke completely and then I couldn't remove the screw head. I just had to leave it in place so one corner of the table top is loose. September 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Briquette Barbeque Absolutely love this barbque. We have never liked the propane barbques, and have a wood pellet barbque which we really like, but it is high mainteance. Finding this briquette barbque was pretty exciting for us. This one has a huge cooking space and is so easy to ignite. Very safe and and like the added counter space. So easy to keep clean. Very, very happy with it. If you want an alternative to propane barbequing, this is your answer. Amazing how much more flavorful your meals are. Say good-bye to propane!!! July 9, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by one of the best purchases I've ever made I've owned this grill for 9-10 years. It is just now starting to show signs of wear. And in all honesty, I haven't really taken care of it. It's lived outside year round and 80% of the time uncovered. Rain, snow, sleet, cold, fall leaves, you name it. It still works perfectly fine, and cooks great. I really love the gas ignition - that's the main reason I bought the grill. When I replace it, I will buy it again. I'm pretty sold on Weber's quality and durability. Hope the new one will be just as good. June 12, 2014
