Questions & Answers

Do I also need lighter fluid or just newspaper and a match?

Asked by: laares33
No, never use lighter fluid. Try taking a piece of newspaper and roll it from one corner to the opposite corner. Form it into a circle by pressing it into the chimney starter from underneath and do the same thing to a second sheet. With it turned upside down, spray both sheets of newspaper with non-stick cooking spray. Turn it back over and add some basic Kingsford charcoal. Take care not to place the chimney under an awning or anything else that will burn and do not place it on top of anything that is flammable. Put a flame onto the paper, and you will have success. Don't move the chimney wearing flip-flops or while barefoot, and you won't be hurting. This is a simple but great product.

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.

I would recommend keeping an oven mit or heat insulated glove close by just in case. The first batch I handled it with bare skin...the second time I cooked it got a little warm.

I'm a first timer with a charcoal grill but this chimney made it so easy. Put the charcoals in place, put the paper or lighting material under, light it up and 15 minutes later you have red hot coals! Can't get any easier!

I now use this chimney with one sheet of newspaper and a teaspoon of vegetable oil to keep the paper from burning too quickly to start charcoal. Leaves to taste residue and never fails.
