The original chimney starter system from Weber has everything you need to light charcoal quickly and evenly; a chimney starter and 2kg bag of briquettes. Made from aluminium steel, it can hold enough briquettes for a 57cm kettle barbecue. Its flat bottom ensures a fast start which eliminates the need for lighter fluid. And what's more, it has a 'stay cool' handle so you can carefully manoeuvre it when ever it suits. To use simply place the chimney starter, with coals, on top of lighter cubes or crumpled newspaper and light.

Hungry for success in the 1950s, George Stephen Snr would soon change the way Americans cooked outdoors. Working at Weber Brothers Metalworks in Chicago, manufacturing marine buoys, he decided to chop a metal buoy in half, add air vents and legs and so created the original kettle barbecue. His lidded barbecue looked like a spaceship but it soon took off when people tasted its grilling results.
With post-war Americans embracing less formal entertaining at home, outdoor covered cooking caught on and not long after setting up on his own, George was able to buy out Weber Brothers. Weber gas and electric barbecues went from strength to strength, especially with the arrival of the Weber Genesis in the 1980s. Weber is now known worldwide for its barbecues, tools, covers and other BBQ accessories.More from Weber
