Customer Questions & Answers

Do I also need lighter fluid or just newspaper and a match?

Asked by: laares33
I use the Weber cubes. I place them on top three of them just under the coals, works great. Easier than messing with newspapers, etc. Weber Lighter Cubes. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Lighter-Cubes-24-Pack-7417/202843410

Does this starter hold enough charcoal to fill the coal grate? We like a rather large fire.

Asked by: Double2Double
depends on how large your grate is but it holds more than most.

What is the purpose of the metal piece which looks like a hanger?

See image.
Asked by: lcnorvell
The wire piece that looks like a hanger is to be used, (with heat resistant gloves on), to allow you to pour the coals just where you want them on the grill.

Is the bottom of the chimney open or are the coals simply held in place by the newspaper?

Asked by: Lenell
The chimney starter has a metal grid that keeps the charcoal from falling out the bottom. The paper is stuffed at the bottom and lit to burn the paper, which in turn lights the charcoals.

We recently got into grilling and being real beginners had an issue with starting the fire and building up to our desired temperature. When we got this chimney, we gained more confidence. The space underneath created by an inverted cone makes it easy to light up the charcoals above it. We light it up using papers from spam mails and our torch lighter (don't even need lighter fluid or other fire starters), leave it for 15 minutes and hot coals are ready for grilling. The handle is also positioned far enough from the chimney so that we can hold it with bare hands without getting burned, and easy enough to tip over to pour down the coals. We have only been grilling for less than a month but with this, we have made steak, kabobs, and even beef brisket perfectly. Highly recommended!

Just fill it with charcoal straight out of the bag (not match light) and then tear off some of the bag itself to put underneath and light. I have literally used it hundreds of times and never needed to light it a second time. With no lighter fluid to burn off, it is perfect every time in 20 minutes flat.

Took very little time to get hot coals. It is very easy to pour out the hot coals with the use of the two handles. We bought the last one at our local Home Depot, guess they are a "hot" item!
