Great grilling starts with blazing-hot charcoal! This Chimney Starter takes the frustration out of getting your barbecue briquettes going. It's never been easier or faster to light your coals! Simply place crumpled newspaper into the lower chamber, fill the body of the starter with your desired charcoal or wood chunks, light the paper, and let the chimney do the work! The burning paper lights charcoal evenly and without any nasty chemicals. In about 15 minutes you'll have burning coals that are ready to pour into your grill.
