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.
Use kraft paper like grocery bag pieces or parts of your charcoal bag and a starter cubes like Katon Cubes and you will have a quick fire.
Pay attention when you empty hot coals to get all of them out of the chimney!!!! This goes for any chimney starter.
When I saw a video of someone lighting charcoal with only a chimney, some newspaper, and a long Bic lighter, I new it was time to stop tempting fate. I have a big smoker that I use at least once a week for brisket, pulled pork, etc., and also a Weber kettle grill we use for basic grilling. This chimney is the only way to go. I light it and don't have to stand around fussing over it and spraying highly flammable liquids onto it. I use that time to assemble the rest of the gear and food so I can get down to business with my cooking.
I like this so much, I bought a second to have around when I need to light an extra large batch of charcoal.
Just a couple sheets of newspaper and 10 minutes later the coals are glowing hot and ready.
Someone mentioned using Kingston charcoal but I decided to get the cheapest I could find at the grocery store. Yup, it worked great. I needed to use more briquettes though because they were small.
Yes, I was kind of doubtful because past experience has proven to me that charcoal needs lighter fluid to light properly. I won't be doing that again.
This thing is built very well. The heat shield worked very well, and I was happy to have the handle which helps in dumping out the coals. The joints are welded well, and the quality of the metal is high. This is good because it is going to get very hot.
NOTE #1: The side of the chimney will discolor due to the extreme heat. This is normal, so don't expect it to look as good as the picture after using.
NOTE #2: After dumping the coals, do not set it down on something that can burn or melt. The metal will still be very hot.
