A Must-have Product for Charcoal BBQs
Excellent item for charcoal bbqs. Load the chimney with Coal, tear a small amount of paper from the charcoal bag, make into a ball, place it under the chimney, light up and wait for about 15 minutes until you see red charcoal through the chimney holes. Use gloves while pouring the hot coal into the grill. 10 out of 10. No more starter fuels, no more blowing air, so much convenience.

So easy to get your grill going
Got this for Father’s Day. After using the nasty lighter fluid setup my wife bought me this. Followed the directions and in less than 10 minutes the charcoal was red hot and ready. Great product and makes starting your grill so simple. I bought another one for my dad who’s a long time Weber fan. He loves it as well. Highly recommend this for the charcoal grilling gurus out there!

    well worth the money
    Lets be honest, if you dont like cooking on charcoal it’s probably because you don’t enjoy lighting the coals, right? Stores always put the lighter fluid right next to the charcoal so you think thats the only way to get it lit. Well i used to think that way too. These charcoal chimneys are literally life changing tools, because you dont need lighter fluid at all and the coals light with no issues time after time. Put some paper or a fire starter under the chimney, fill up the chimney with coals, and light the paper or starter. Its that easy! I bought this chimney because my smaller chimney started rusting. So worth the 20 bucks i spent especially given the extra size! Buy it and go down the charcoal rabbit hole, you won’t be disappointed.

      Rapidfire is Perfect for a Truly Rapid Fire
      This is the only way to start a great fire. I’m now a devoted Rapidfire user and am spreading the word. I’m also embarrassed to say that I learned fire-starting from my dad, who was a great believer in lighter fluid. I will never again start a charcoal fire without using a Rapidfire chimney!

        Très déçu que cet article ne résiste pas suffisamment à la chaleur.

            Indispensable Accessory!
            This accessory us indispensable. Growing up I disliked charcoal grills due to the copious amounts of lighter fluid or impregnated briquettes people used. I researched extensively and learned the legitimate grill masters use charcoal chimneys to light their charcoal quickly and efficiently with no lighter fluid taste imparted to the food! In my opinion, this accessory is a must have in addition to a Weber charcoal grill.
