Q: Is Weber chimney one that you put paper on bottom and charcoal on top and light the paper

My favorite charcoal starter!

I've never found a better way to start a charcoal fire! I like this so much that I bought a friend one for her grill, and she loves it. Never fails to light the charcoal. And without the smell, chemicals, or fire risk of expensive fluid starters. A few crumpled paper sheets cost nothing. And, if you have the 22" Weber kettle, filling the starter to the top provides what I think is the perfect amount for most cooking work. And it has lasted for 20 years.

Great chimney starter. I got this to replace one that had rusted. I'm loyal to this brand because of consistent fast startups. Don't worry about the price; it's worth it for good results.

Handles prone to melting

1 out of 5 stars

I have two of these; in less than 3 months, one plastic handle melted off completely, and the other is severely deformed. This despite following the instructions that were included. I boggles the mind that a product intended for holding flaming coals can’t handle the temperatures that the product produces.

It eliminates the need to use any chemicals. You can use either one of the paraffin blocks or do what I do and recycle a couple pages of old newspaper. This chimney guarantees a quick start without the jassle

Skip the lighter fluid. Use this instead.

This is the best way to start your charcoal. Just crumble up some newspaper and put it under the coals. Light it and in a few minutes the coals will be started. You can avoid that gassy smell of lighter fluid and have a nice clean fire to cook on.

looking for a simple non chemical charcoal starter

I wanted to get away from chemicals to light our Bar B Que, I remembered my father-in-law had a cylinder starter he placed newspaper underneath and then poured the charcoal inside the top. I bought this today and crumpled a few sheets of newspaper loosely just like I had remembered. It smoked excessively at first so much so I thought about getting a blanket and doing smoke signals seriously. The paper was gone it was still smoking I wasn't sure if this was a fail or not. I walked in the house a few minuets later I returned to find flames and the charcoal glowing. Oh yes it was perfect and in less time then the pile takes. I was so impressed I did it again only with a full load of charcoal same impressive results with no chemicals just a few sheets of crumpled newspaper. The cylinder is made heavy-duty it's well ventilated to get those coals heated incredibly fast. It is worth the money and saves time. I love it!

Perfectly designed chimney starter

5 out of 5 stars
Tom-san - 7 months ago
originally posted on weber.com
This starter is as described on the website and by other reviewers. It vents better than my previous chimney starter, feels better made, and is an ideal size. I have not owned it long enough to claim that it will last longer, but my previous starter had a thinner grate and walls, and literally burned out over 3 years. This starter costs $5 more and I suspect it will last an extra year for each extra dollar.

Got this for Father’s Day. After using the nasty lighter fluid setup my wife bought me this. Followed the directions and in less than 10 minutes the charcoal was red hot and ready. Great product and makes starting your grill so simple. I bought another one for my dad who’s a long time Weber fan. He loves it as well. Highly recommend this for the charcoal grilling gurus out there!
