  • Real boost to grilling

    Don't know how I got along without this Chimney Starter. It works like
    it should and is so convenient. Very well made and easy to use. Nice
    to not use starter fluid. Much better taste to the food.

    I recommend this product.

  • Better price & excellent CONTROL

    I already had one of these, for which I paid $20 for at a local building store last summer. These two were on sale, so even with the cost of shipping, they were still less than local retial! I have a LARGE chargrill and am a charcoal snob, so no lighter fluid for us. I like to cook a large amount of amount of meat and veggies as our family is 6 and we often have others join us. So, by using all three starters at once, I get sufficient charcola ready to cook a few steaks, burgers, dogs, and veggies aT ONCE. I can really bank the grayed hot coals for indirect or direct heating methods without having to add more or wait. Until last year, I used a couple of different brands and they were flimsier and did not have the heavy-duty heatproof handle. Nor did they have the flippable control handle bar unique to the Weber chimney; and these 'extras' are ESSENTIAL to safe handling and controlled pouring of the burning charcoal. These chimneys are also a little larger volume containers than the others out there so very efficient. No lighter fluid taste + use of old newspaper + use a basic long match = good to go!!

  • Satisfied customer ....

    Purchased the RapidFire Charcoal Chimney Starter. Have to admit I was dubious. However, one use and I threw away my electric starter. The Chimney is much quicker - have a very hot fire in half of the time with the electric starter. What a great product !!!

    I recommend this product.

  • Griller's Best Friend

    Fabulous! No more starting the grill with lighter fluid! That alone is amazing...but the best part is that I can start the coals, go back into the house to prepare the food (or whatever else I need to do), come back out in under 15 minutes and the grill is READY. I remember all the times I did that in the past, only to come out to the grill and find that the coals were not ready. Whether it was wind, not enough lighter fluid, didn't have the fire started enough or whatever...This has been a real treat...I look forward to grilling like I never have before! Totally recommend this product!

  • Works Like a Charm.

    Great for slow cooking with lump charcoal or regular charcoal. I am very pleased with the construction of this coal starter as I have had other brands in the past that were somewhat flimsy. If you like to slow cook barbeque,then this will do the trick. Easy to slow burn coals and add them as needed. I will also be using this with my smoker as it is so useful to add coals to the starter and burn them down and add to your cooking coals.
    I would recommend this to anyone who loves to BBQ.

  • The product arrived quickly in excellent condition, it was well-packed.

    It is a great product, it is a little bigger that I thought it was going to be, so it will hold more charcoal. I am very pleased with it and will use it a lot this summer.

    I recommend this product.

    There is nothing worse than getting to the Jet game and having to nurse the charcoal to a nice glow for your BBQ. With the Chimney Starter we get a great fire in minutes.
