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.

Grilling with charcoal produces the best results, and this devices makes it very simple and easy without the lighter fluid flavor being added to the process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy! Purchased as a Christmas gift and was surprised at the quality of the product. We are not new to the Weber Grill Chimney but man, I think this is one company that has actually increased quality unlike so many others. I really was not expecting that considering the price was so affordable. Very happy with the purchase and will continue to be a loyal Weber customer.

The heat shield deflects the radiated heat making the handle and control brace manageable sometimes even without gloves. More importantly, constructed with heavy gauge material that makes it last much longer. I use mine three or four times a week for dutch oven cooking and mine last about 4 or five years.

No after taste of lighter fluid and is about 15 minutes faster. This is a durable strong unit with just the right amount of heat reduction to not burn you hand when you go to grab the handle.

(I typically don’t do reviews.. but) After my wife complained about the taste of lighter fluid in my previous cookout, I decided to make this minor investment that’s resulted in a major improvement in my confidence and food flavor. Highly recommend!!

It used to take me at least 30 minutes to get the mesquite all nice and gray and now in about 10 minutes I'm ready to grill. Great product.

I'll never be without this again.The construction is solid & I felt very secure in handling it with red hot coals. The handle to assist with dumping out the coals is great!
