The Ultimate Chimney Starter with a Bakelite handle is the largest chimney starter on the market. The square corners give you extra control when distributing the hot embers. Environmentally safe chimney starter lights a charcoal grill quickly and easily without lighter fluid. Food tastes better and the charcoal lighter fluid odor doesn’t permeate your picnic–or the environment. To use the chimney starter, stuff sheets of newspaper in its bottom chamber and fill the top chamber with charcoal. After lighting the paper through one of the perforated holes in the starter’s bottom, it takes 20 minutes or so for the coals to heat up to the proper temperature. Simply pour them into the basin of your charcoal grill and you’re ready to barbecue.
