Has the weber rapidfire different sizes or one size,?

Asked by Mellow August 7, 2020
3
Answers

There is a full-size and a compact size. We found the full-size to be way too big for our family of 4 so took it back and ordered the compact which was just right for our typical grilling. The larger one would be recommended if you are grilling for a crowd.

Is this still made in U.S.A.?

Yes.

WILL IT FIT INSIDE A SMOKEY JOE FOR STORAGE?

Asked by Tom May 1, 2019
5
Answers

I do not believe it will fit inside. I do not have mine with me, but it is around twelve inches high and about eight inches across the base and sides without the handle. It may work if the handles were removed. I don't think the Smokey Joe is high enough for it to fit.

How to use

Asked by Debra March 29, 2016

Answers

With the chimney upside down, stuff a crumpled up sheet of newspaper, paper bag or any paper into the chimney under the grate of the chimney and turn the chimney upright and place in the grill where the charcoal goes. With the chimney setting upright in your grill and the paper stuffed under the chimney grate, fill the chimney with charcoal. Light the paper with a match or two and that is it. Once the flames start coming out the chimney in approximately 10 to 15 minutes or so, dump the charcoal using the handle of the chimney. CAUTION: It is advisable to wear heat proof gloves and shoes to avoid getting burned by the hot ashes that may fall through your grill.

too small, the area underneath is too small to ignite regular briquettes, the area above doesn't hold enough briquettes, construction is okay (they used screws to hold the handle and unit together instead of pop rivets which rusted), design is poor!

Hello! We're sorry to learn of your disappointment with our compact chimney starter. It sounds like you may be more interested in our regular sized chimney starter, part # 7416. Thanks.

The ease of use, simplicity and convenience of the Original charcoal Chimney Starter, is well known, and has been around for years. With the latest creation of the COMPACT Charcoal Chimney, cooking life is even better. It is an ideal size for traveling, or using around the house, when you don't really need 100 pieces of charcoal burning. It is the perfect size for my Weber, Little Smokey grill, which we use camping. It is an ideal tool, when cooking on your Camp Dutch Ovens. Or if you are grilling on the bigger grills, but really don't need allot of coals to do the job. Compact is the way to go. When pack space is a concern, and you don't need a ton of charcoal to cook your meals, this is perfect tool for the job. I highly recommend it. The compact model is about 1/3 the size of the original chimney starter, and half the price.

I already have the Big Daddy Chimney starter, but I wanted a smaller version so as to carry in a toolbag. This small version is ideal, just as easy to start the charcoal, it doesn't require too much newspaper to fuel the fire. I did't have to buy a minimum to get free shipping like at Amazon. I picked it up at my local Homedepot. Would definitely recommend the tool and HomeDepot as a source for this Chimney..
