Rated 5 out of 5 by jglasma Bye bye lighter fluid =) I just used this for the first time yesterday and I really like it. I admit I was skeptical but I read the reviews on here and they're mostly positive. I'd agree with those.I'm sure most of you who've used charcoal in the past may get annoyed because all the briquettes don't ash over. With this, they do. Plus no more lighter fluid taste, which I'm sure is healthier. It's really easy to use too, crumple 3 pages of newspaper up and stuff them in the bottom, place in grill, then light the newspaper through the holes on the bottom. 10-15 mins later, pour them out. The handle is wooden with heat shielding that is adequate. This is a great value for $9.97 and will last for years. It'll probably outlast my $20 grill I got at wal-mart lol. 05/30/2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by BOOBOOTHEBEAR finally tried this well after many , many, many ( you get the point ) years of starting my charcoal grill with lighter fluid ( the only way i knew how ) i finally decided to try one of these things -- i made the best chicken legs i have ever made !!!!!it might have taken 5 minutes longer than using fluid but there was no lighter fluid after taste --- simply put - i will never use lighter fluid again !!! and it is more environmentally friendly 02/16/2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by fatmcrat Worth more that what you pay for it!!! This thing may say 15-20 minutes before you put in your grill but you won't need that long. I was smoking boston butts and temp wasn't getting high enough. I ran to Wally World and bought this puppy and now my smoker is exactely where it needs to be. I crammed in the newspapers and 3-4 handfuls of charcoal and within 6-7 minutes the charcoal was glowing. I would have spent more than 9.97 on this thing, cauz its well worth it. 05/01/2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by AverageJosephine Amazing Product I bought my husband this item over 5 years ago on a summer clearance sale. He laughed at it and didn't use it for along time-until he ran out of lighter fluid. We have used nothing else since. Use one at home, keep one in the camper, and have even given them to family members as gifts. We grill 9 months out of the year, at least three times a week, and we are still using the original chimney I purchased. I have bought a couple more and stashed away just in case they stop selling them. 11/05/2009
