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.

Rapidfire Chimney Charcoal Starter is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 485.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stop your search. You found it. Forget all other chimneys you've been looking at. Don't even consider them. Stop wasting your time right now. This is the chimney you need. I made the mistake of trying two other cheaper chimneys in the past. So learn from my experience. Full stop, look no further. I've had this chimney for 4 years now and it is a workhorse. Simple design that others can't match yet. Like a mesh at the bottom instead of a sheet of metal with holes so more flame can lick the charcoal. Holes on the side to allow more air flow (more air = faster ignition of the coals). A proper heat shield so you can handle the chimney with bare hands. Lots of holes along the bottom to slide a lighter (and lots of room for paper). I use it to start all sort of fires from low 'n slow cooks to roaring searing fires. There is nothing better out there, bar none. I don't take it inside during raining days or winter month. It is outside exposed to it all. Four years later, it is still solid and sturdy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing Had an employee talk me into buying this over lighter fluid. I was a little skeptical, but gave it a try. Stuffed some news paper in the bottom, filled the top with coals and lit the news paper...my coals were ready in under 10 minutes! Glad I purchased this!! I will never use lighter fluid again!!

Forget the stinky lighter fluid which ends up making your meat taste like "Naptha", or self light coal which is saturated in starter fluid. Simply roll up eight sheets of regular news paper in to tight balls, and stuff the bottom of the chimney with it. Place the chimney centered in the grill. Add charcoal briquets or Royal Oak Wood coal in the top, (the best stuff around) and light the paper through the bottom slits with a long BBQ lighter. Wait 10 to 15 minutes, and carefully dump the coals into the grill and evenly distribute the fire. No fuss, no muss, and no stinky fluid. You will also enjoy the instant high heat and be ready to cook immediately.

I have been using an electric starter for about five years when it finally gave up. I decided to try the chimney rather than another electric starter and now I wish I changed over much sooner. The chimney starts quickly and get the coals going nice and hot. The handle allows you to dump the coals into grill without burning your arms of fingers. It takes about 15 mins to get the coals going but that is actually faster than the electric starter. I never use lighter fluid and this chimney really does a great job getting the grill started.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Recently got into charcoal grilling and realized what a pain it was to get the charcoal going with lighter fluid. Saw this on the website and thought it was too good to be true, but it was only $12 so I gave it a shot. Best money I've ever spent, lights with no issue whatsoever! Eliminates all the headache of getting charcoal going. Buy it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reliable Rapidfire. The Rapidfire charcoal starter is the most reliable charcoal igniting tools in the market. I have purchased two more after the initial purchase. It can get hot, so you are required to wear safety gloves while managing the tool.
