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: Stone
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.

Rapidfire Chimney Charcoal Starter is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 691.

Bought this to replace or augment another Weber Chimney that is smaller and did not ignite charcoal well. This one works fantastic IF you ensure the charcoal is not packed tightly and there are air channels running up through the pile AND you use Weber Charcoal Lighter Cubes. I had a full chimney of charcoal blazing in 15 minutes! On the other hand, I tried some real mesquite charcoal and had problems as the charcoal included so much fine dust that it choked the flames, it still lit, but it took longer.

It took a long time to get all of the charcoal burning and then some of it never did burn. I was looking on YouTube and saw the charcoal chimney being used and I made a trip to Home Depot the next day and bought a Weber charcoal starter and love it. I also bought the Weber starter cubes to light the charcoal in the chimney. This makes starting the grilling process so much easier. I also bought my brother-in-law a chimney for his birthday.

The volume of coals this lights is more than I need in most cases - and that's including smoking two racks of ribs in the 22" kettle - but this is still a must have. I recommend, however, getting both. Get this one, and get Weber's smaller one as well. The small one may be the one you'll use the most.

This is my first time owning and using a starter chimney I like it because I do not have to touch the charcoal or use lighter fluid with the starter chimney all you need is a piece of newspaper and a lighter it helps keep my hands clean and all my charcoal is lit so I have plenty of Heat going

This updated version of the original is perfect. The extra thin metal handle (without the grip) is perfect for balancing when pouring out the super hot coals. It works exactly as it is advertised and is super easy to use!

Set up my new grill the other day, used lighter fluid on a small amount of coals because I didn't have much to cook and it was horrible. Some did not stay lit so they did not get hot to continue cooking. Tried out the chimney and it works great without lighter fluid to ruin the taste.

Much better and faster than using pretreated charcoal or using lighter fluid. This one is much bigger than the one I had and works well with newspaper to ignite. I did not buy the cubes. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Great way to start your charcol grill Just fill the top with charcoal and the bottom with a starter or newspaper place it on the lower grate in your grill, and lights in minutes your hot coals are ready. Pour coals out into your grill, and your ready to go. We love it!
