- Yes. You put the same amount you would normally stack on the grill rack. The charcoal then is lit by newspaper and smolders in the chimney. It's more efficient that way. When they are ashed, you dump it out and cook.by IndiaTango7/25/2013Was this answer helpful? (0) (1)Was this answer helpful?
- You would put enough to use for one hour. If cooking for longer than one hour I would say you have to start another batch of coals. It can probably hold 40-50 briquets at one time.by Gwen197/25/2013Was this answer helpful? (0) (1)Was this answer helpful?

- I don't; the purpose of this is to get a good matrix of charcoal lit, dump it on your grill, and add more charcoal on top (which will catch very quickly).by sunshinestate17/25/2013Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- Yes, i put all the charcoal in at the beginning. For a few steaks, i don't usually fill the can to the very top. For a lot of chicken or something that takes longer to cook and covers more of the grill surface, i use a full can of charcoal. Occasionally i have added a few extra coals to the fire after dumping the coals from the can, but it is rare that i have to grill for that long.by Walmartperfect7/25/2013Was this answer helpful?

- No. You fill the starter with wood chunks ( google what charcoal is made of). Twenty minutes later, pour the hot coals into the grill. Add more wood, right on top of the coals, as needed.by miselaineous134/19/2011Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- We did...it holds quite a bit more than you think it would from the picture. When we first used this, we used a charcoal grill - the standard square shaped grill, nothing fancy. The starter held the right amount of charcoal for this kind of grill. My husband has used the starter to do smaller amounts of charcoal for placing around a dutch oven, too.by Dressy4/19/2011Was this answer helpful? (4) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- There is a separator a few inches before the bottom to provide a space to put newspaper to start the charcoal. It works really well.by IndiaTango9/7/2011Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- You put 2-3 pieces of crumpled newspaper in the bottom section and light the paper, coals are ready in a few minutes.by Gwen198/8/2011Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- After it's stuffed with newspaper and charcoal, tip it to one side and insert match in the bottom. Easy peasy.by sunshinestate17/17/2011Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- You light the paper through the wholes at the bottom of the canister with a match(es) and/or lighter. The rest happens on its own.by Ahavagirl11/28/2012Was this answer helpful? (0) (1)Was this answer helpful?
- Use 2 sheets of newspaper, however it burns fast so to slow the fire down give the paper a couple of sprays with veggie oil then crumple the newspaper and light it.by Heckler102110/22/2010Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- Crumple 1 to 2 sheets of newspaper and put in the bottom. Fill with amount of charcoal. Place the unit on the tray in the grill, and light the newspaper through the holes. Wait 15 minutes and empty hot coals on tray.by liscaprezz11/28/2012Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- You stuff newspaper in the bottom and light it, which is separated from the coals that you load in the top, I think that the combination of the heat from the newspaper, the stacked coals encased in steel provides enough heat to light the coals without using any lighter fluid. The coals sure do get hot and definitely get ashy enough to start cooking in 15 mins or less.by Volunteerstate7/6/2010Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- Use small wood chips or paper in the bottom, and light from the bottom. I couldn't believe how well it worked.by miselaineous136/27/2010Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- Place a wad of newspaper below the chimney.Light newspaper.by countrymikefl12/29/2009Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- Probably heavy duty galvanized tin or munimula. Not familiar with the Weber. It's a workhorse, solid and sturdy.by sunshinestate111/26/2011Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- No, the Weber Rapidfire is a much better alternative, as tested by Cooks Illustrated. The Weber holds 50% more coals, and has additional ventilation holes up in the charcoal chamber which cuts the time you have to wait for those coals to be ready.by Parus558/23/2011Was this answer helpful?

- This starter is made of what appears to be thin aluminum alloy.by liscaprezz7/12/2010Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- I am not sure what the starter is made of specifically. It's some form of galvanized metal. Its pretty heavy duty. I've been using mine for about 4 months, and it sits outside on the porch. It hasn't rusted and looks practically brand new despite getting used 3-4 times a week on average.by Sonickat5/26/2011Was this answer helpful? (5) (0)Was this answer helpful?
