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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! Have this starter for at least 4 years. One piece of newspaper and chimney full and it has never failed to light.

It holds charcoal on top and about three crumbled up newspaper pages on the bottom. When you light the paper on fire, it burns. The burning paper ignites the charcoal. It's amazing, really. Then, when all the charcoal is glowing red, you grip the plastic handle (if it was made of metal, it would be really hot!), pick up the starter and pour the hot coals onto the bottom grate of your grill (Warning! Do not pour the coals onto the top of your grill because your food will taste ashy and awful). Be sure that the starter is empty before putting it down. Stray hot coals can cause a fire. Once you have replaced the grilling grate you can begin cooking. Enjoy!

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.

When I bought my Original Weber 22" Kettle Premium Charcoal Grill 3 years ago, I bought a smaller off brand chimney starter. I wanted a chimney starter that had more capacity for charcoal. If you fill this starter full, it is the right amount of charcoal for a full grill of food. I just pour in the charcoal, light up a lighter cube and in approximately 20-25 minutes you are ready to cook. Built well, great price, you can't go wrong with this charcoal chimney starter.

I have purchased several Weber chimney charcoal starters over the years and I am never disappointed. They last for several seasons; I do have mine covered in between uses, so it takes forever for them to get so degraded that you cannot use them! I get holes in the sides - the bottom has never detached. I highly recommend the chimney starters over using lighter fluid.

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.

Awesome way to get your charcoal hot and ready for your barbecue easy to fill easy to light easy to pour into your grill I like it especially because you don't need any chemicals lighter fluid etc all you need is some newspaper or you can get the charcoal igniters that's recommended for it .
