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.

Customer Reviews

Performer Platinum 22-1/2 in. Charcoal Grill in Black is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this BBQ This is the best BBQ ever. I don't get people that use gas grills. Charcoal is the way to go and with propane starter there are no lighter fluid tastes and smells. Get one and see what I mean.
Date published: 2013-05-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't even question the price This grill is completely worth every penny. I purchased the traditional weber kettle last year loved it so much, this year I UPGRADED. I couldn't be more please with this grill with the gas lighter, it awesome. Grill is ready to cook in 10 minutes and shuts off in seconds when the you close all the vents. I have even slow cook a boston but for 12 hours at a perfect 225 degrees. Stop thinking about it and just buy it, you won't regret it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing 2nd Weber bbq in a row. Owned a smaller propane weber in my apartment then recently moved to a house. Gave the propane bbq to a friend. When I moved into the house was planning on getting a larger version of the weber propane however decided I missed the taste and smell of charcoal bbq. They always remind me of camping, or my visit to Texas and going to a firepit restaurant. After doing much research decided on the Weber. When I went to the store the sales person talked me out of charcoal and into another brand in propane. I left and returned the next day to cancel order and stick with my gut and based on the great review purchase the Performer. I could not be happier. Food cooks to perfection, tastes great with a bbq smoked flavour (light unless you use wood chips/chunks). and so easy to use. One button to light and simply close the vents to extinguish. I usually get 2-3 bbq's out of one set of coal in the coal baskets. I love the sturdy and large table top and the charcoal/grill tools storage bin underneath. We have had a lot of heavy rain the past two weeks and the charcoal has stayed bone dry. Would truly recommend to those that love real bbq and/or love cooking for family and/or friends. Two of mine have already gone out and bought their own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Real charcoal flavor - Using the gas starter & a charcoal chimney it's ready to cook on in less than 15 minutes
Date published: 2013-04-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best steak we ever grilled! This unit was a huge upgrade from what we've cooked on in the past. The assembly was a bit complicated, but we figured it out without too much trouble. Features we love: - Self-starting gas ignition system - Temperature gauge & visible timer - Lid-holder when checking cooking status
Date published: 2013-11-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I should have upgraded sooner! What a great BBQ! The ease of the propane charcoal starter, the enclosed ash catcher and the built in table top are a few of the items that hooked me in giving my son my 8 y/o perfectly good 22" Weber and buying the Platinum series. My only dislike would be how the lid sits on the side and hovers over the grill. I wish Weber would add the lid hook like their older models so it can rest out of the way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
