Must buy for Kettle kings
Best bit of BBQ kit I've ever bought. No more lighting fuss. Coals ready in 15-20 mins.
Keep away from children though as it gets VERY, VERY hot.

This is big!
For those of you with a smaller BBQ or who are only cooking for a few folk please do consider the portable version of this.
This one is 30cm long and has a 19cm diameter.
As I've not used it yet I can only offer an average rating.

Perfect coals everytime
I learnt about this on youtube - it's absolutely brilliant. No more fire lighters, just a bit of paper and the funnel effect gets your coals perfect every time. Just be careful when transferring them to your grill if it's windy - enjoy

Bought this after seeing chimney starters used on tv BBQ programmes... It works perfectly, one firelighter at the bottom and within a short while you have a full and even tank of coals to spread out as you wish....
This makes indirect cooking such as meat joints really easy as you can place the coals around the drip tray....
There are cheaper alternatives, but this is the best and well worth the cost.... Fantastic build quality....
Must own item for serious BBQ chefs!

How to easily light a BBQ and add extra fun to the experience.
3 words describe this product: Wow, Wow, Wow!
I recently converted to using briquettes in my Weber BBQ and after one attempt of using paper, fire lighters, meths and even contemplating nuclear fusion to get them going - I knew it was time to look elsewhere. The Weber BBQ Chimney Starter was my first and only purchase that I will need to get the BBQ briquettes or charcoal going to provide the perfect heat distribution for cooking.
It's that simple that you just add paper or newspaper to fill the underside of the Chimney and then the amount of briquettes/charcoal that you require on top of the metal grill that separates the 2; there is easily enough space to provide an initial amount of fuel for all sizes of BBQ.
Simply, open the vents on your BBQ, but you can't/don't add the lid to a kettle BBQ and light it at the vents on the Chimney at the bottom - that's it! After approximately 20 to 30 minutes, all of your briquettes/charcoal will be ash covered and it's safe and easy to pick up the Chimney for adding the briquettes/charcoal to your BBQ for immediate use; for either direct or indirect cooking methods.
The Weber Chimney Starter is made from material that is exceptional quality and has nothing that can fail through normal use - husbandry is limited to a wash down with water if there is any ash on the Chimney. It is great fun using this product to pack the bottom side with paper, lighting it and watching your briquettes or charcoal light with the intense heat from the air flow provided by the chimney. The final point is that this product will pay for itself over time because you do not require any further purchases of BBQ fire lighting products. The Weber Chimney Starter IS the only product you need to get the BBQ going and it's great fun to use - you can't lose!
