Charcoal in my Weber Chimney Starter


This chimney starter is the best I’ve seen.  It has a large capacity and a cone shaped wire grate that allows for more airflow to the charcoal.  This helps it start faster.  Another benefit of the chimney starter in general is it allows you to start new batches of coals for charcoal smoking for long periods of time.  It is quick, easy and inexpensive at about $13.
