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.

Rapidfire Chimney Charcoal Starter is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 850.

Does an excellent job of lighting the charcoal inside it uniformly, and using newspaper to start it keeps the nasty taste of lighter fluid off your food...as well as eliminates the mushroom cloud of fire and smoke when you need to add more fluid to get the outside pieces lit...although that is kinda cool in the evening...

When I got to look at it up close I could see it was well made,when I used it the first time it did not disappoint me. The charcoal lit quicker than my old chimney!!

Recommend to buy Kong’s ford charcoal and a glove so that you don’t burn your hand when you pour the charcoal in the pit

I bought this larger one versus the smaller, as I will grow in to getting a larger kettle. I have a Weber Go-Anywhere grill, and just count the briquettes I put in to this chimney!

This is the key to quick grilling with the right amount of charcoal. Brickettes quickly get to gray edges, then dump them out and you are grilling! A full chimney perfectly fits a 22in Weber grill, but use less for a two-stage fire or just smaller cooking area.

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!
