I love this compact chimney starter because it is the perfect size for my Weber Smokey Joe Silver (and custom-built mini-WSM).
Anthony Nguyen
This Item works better then I ever expected, Started charcoal fast and evenly, will never go back to the old way of using lighter fluid.
Wally Phillips
We don't need a lot of charcoal with the small portable grill, and this is a great compact size for use with the smaller grills.

EDIT: fixed my calculations for volume

For my grill the easiest way to control the heat (225F for long smokes) is to limit the fuel. I have a full size chimney and found myself only filling it to 1/3 full (33 Kingsford Original briquettes). I decided I wanted half that and found that so few briquettes didn't catch on fire as well. I use the Minion method of using the lit coals to light unlit coals over time. So, the question is does this smaller compact chimney starter work for 15-20 briquettes?

Here are the numbers: The full size chimney starter is 12 inches high, 7.5 inches in diameter. The interior cavity is 9 inches deep. There is an internal grate that provides air space under the charcoal about 1/4 of the way up from the bottom. It's conical in shape but I'm ignoring that; I don't think it makes much difference. Total volume is 126.6 cubic inches (or about 2 liters).

The compact chimney starter is 8 inches high, 5.75 inches in diameter. The cavity is 6.25 inches deep. The total volume is 51.7 cubic inches (or 0.85 liters).

1 full compact chimney starter fills the full chimney starter to 1/3 (33 briquettes as it happens). This is going to be perfect for me. With my usual load of 15 briquettes they didn't even cover the whole bottom of the full sized starter.

I made this measurement because briquettes aren't fluid and don't flow to fill all available space. I was concerned that the briquettes would not pack as well into a smaller volume.

There is some discussion of the compact chimney starter not firing up coals as well. The volume beneath the coal grate that allows air in is smaller than the volume beneath the full size chimney starter. That's obvious. I just lit a 15 briquette load. Fifteen minutes, same as the larger starter.

I previously had a Weber 7416 Rapidfire Chimney Starter but since downsizing my grilling operations to a Smokey Joe thought this was a better fit. And it is a good fit in terms of charcoal amount for a small grill like the Smokey Joe but it really doesn't work as well as the larger size. Almost always need 2 newspaper sheets (one after the other) whereas on the larger unit one sheet was usually sufficient.

EDIT:
Adding that another reason for opting for the larger one is that the small one is pretty much unusable with lump charcoal. Many times I prefer lump charcoal and don't want to have to manually break it up before placing it in the chimney.

I have the Weber Smokey Joe Jumbo. If you fill this to the very top it starts 40 pieces of charcoal, perfect for grill. Also perfect for smoking w/ Minnon method for smoker. You fill charcoal pan w/ charcoal and then put lighted coals in the middle, as coals burn down it spreads the fire and maintains temp.

I frequently just need enough coals to place under and above a 10" Dutch oven. This smaller starter holds all I need and takes less space while traveling than my full sized Weber starter.

Easily saves you 15 min in firing up your charcoal for the grill. And, it's small enough to store under the grill... so conveniently always ready to use.

This is the little brother of the Weber 7416 Rapidfire Chimney Starter.
I only use between 18 and 24 charcoal briskets to start my Weber Smokey Mountain, and the 7416 is just to big to get them to start properly. This little guy does a great job getting them going just right. I also fill it to the brim for my Weber Smokey Joe, and it's just the right amount.

Built well, and made to last, like most other Weber products you just can't go wrong.

I was hesitant to order another chimney starter after having purchased the weber standard size starter. The standard starter is big and holds about 100 briquettes. This is great if using a full size grill. I however, travel with my 18" Weber and this compact starter is perfect and takes up much less room. I also use it when I only need 10 or so briquettes for slow smoking.

I haven't noticed the handle getting hot because I use gloves when handling these starters and I think everyone should to avoid burns.

Recommended.

I added a photo so people can compare the size difference.
