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.
Cooks the coals evenly, and a little quicker than just making a pile in the grill. Also it has a nice pocket below where the coals sit, where you have place paper to help start the coals. The holes along the side of the coal chimney help it breath through a thick layer of coals.
For 40+ years I've made a little pile of charcoal and/or wood, soaked it with fluid, hit with a sparker and wham, big ball of flames! Yay, flames! Everything smelled like lighter fluid, but that's how you light a Weber 22" grill, right?
While visiting and watching me create the usual towering inferno, my friend Wayne suggested getting a chimney starter. Feh, I said. Get one, he said.
Well, darn it all, it does a better job. Now, I crumple up some paper and put it at the bottom of the chimney, and dump in the charcoal and/or small pieces of wood above the paper. Light the paper. There's no satisfying ball of flame, but wait 10-15 minutes and the coals are perfect; remove the chimney, flatten the pile of coals/wood, add some bigger pieces of wood if needed, and there you are. No more lighter fluid, no more inferno, and believe it or not, better tasting food. Thank you, Wayne!
HINT 1: We have both the 22" Weber charcoal grill and a Weber gas grill. When the chimney is not in use, we store it behind the doors of the gas grill. That keeps it clean and handy.
HINT 2: I use a bbq glove to remove the chimney from the fire. Don't want to burn myself. I use that same bbq glove to remove the lid from the wood bbq, and sometimes to open the gas grill's cover when it's raging hot.
