Weber’s chimney starter takes the stress and struggle out of lighting a charcoal barbecue.
Simply place Weber firelighters in the bottom of the chimney starter and load the charcoal briquettes into the top. Light the firelighters, stand the chimney starter on the cooking grate, and wait for the smoke to start flowing through the briquettes.
The coals will eventually ignite, but don’t tip them out just yet. Wait until the flames have died down and the charcoal briquettes are coated in a fine grey ash – usually around 20 minutes. Then simply tip the chimney starter up using the handle (and a heat-proof mitt) and pour the hot coals into the barbecue. Replace the cooking grate and you’re fired up and ready to cook!
