Weber's chimney starter makes starting your charcoal a snap. It also cuts down the amount of time it takes for the coals to get ready. Just load up our extra large cannister full of coals, light up a fire starter or crinkled up newspaper, and set the cannister over the flame. In a matter of minutes the coals will be red hot. Who ever thought it could be so easy?

Tell me if this sounds familiar, I stack a mountain of charcoal over a napkin in a shape of a pyramid. I then douse lighter fluid from the top. I let it rest for a few minutes and then light the napkin. After the initial smoke is gone, I get a large piece of cardboard to fan the pyramid until the top briquette catches fire. Process takes 20 minutes. When I flatten out the briquettes so I can put my grate on, not all the briquettes are burned uniformly so I wait another few minutes for the top large pieces to burn to gray, because I don't want cancer.
No lighter fluid.
No fanning for 20 minutes. The chimney forces air up. I go drink a soda (hate beer) and come back in 20 minutes.
No problems with uniformity. When I dump the coals, they are all equally gray. Every "spot" in my weber is burning equally hot.
Verdict: Weber is known to be the best mainstream brand there is to bbqing. They did not disappoint on their Chimney quality. This will actually save you money because you burn away way fewer briquettes to get a good fire. And you don't ever need fluid again.
It's so simple to use! Insert charcoal in cylinder, stuff some newspaper in the bottom from underneath, light newspaper and wait 10 minutes or so then dump it into your grill. I light mine inside my grill on top of the charcoal grate so as not to damage my concrete driveway, then dump it right into the grill. To me, this is easier than using lighter fluid or having to stack my charcoal like my father taught me.
This is hands down my favorite grilling accessory.
I use brown Kraft paper that's used as packaging and it works very well. Free fire starter!
Don't expect an immediate flaming miracle. Plan on 20 minutes to start the charcoal and get it all going before you dump it in the grill. The process starts slowly and builds exponentially. At first, it looks like not much is happening, but the chimney starter is a much better way to start charcoal than building a pyramid and stacking briquettes. Be patient. Start the fire and then go do some food prep or something. A watched fire starter never starts a fire. It only requires a few seconds of your time, but the chimney starter needs 15-20 minutes to do its magic.
I have a smaller hibachi style grill and the grate isn't adjustable, so it's critically dependent on the correct amount of charcoal. It really needs a single layer of charcoal on the bottom of the grill. Any more than that and the coals are way too hot and the outside of the food is incinerated in about a minute. For smaller grills, I recommend putting the cold charcoal into the grill first to measure how much you need, then dump it into the chimney starter and mark that as the amount to use each time.
