Weber ® Rapidfire Chimney Starter
SKU: 610153
In stock and ready to ship Online Only

A cleaner alternative to lighter fluid, this chimney starter gets charcoal going in no time. To light, fill the extra-large capacity canister with coals, place crumpled newspaper underneath and ignite the paper. The cone-shaped charcoal grate exposes more briquettes to the flame, speeding up ignition. The extra large capacity canister holds enough charcoal to fill the Weber Performer Charcoal Grill in one use. Constructed of durable aluminized steel, the chimney starter has a thermoplastic handle and a fold-out wire handle for safer handling.

Ideas and Inspiration: How to Use a Chimney Starter

  1. Remove the cooking grate from your grill and set aside.
  2. Load charcoal up to the top of the chimney starter, or most of the way to the top for smaller meals.
  3. Place small newspaper shreds or lighter cubes onto the charcoal grate in your grill. Light them using a match or a lighter.
  1. Put the chimney starter on top of the newspaper shreds or cubes.
  2. After 10-15 minutes, or when the top coals are gray with ash, empty the hot coals onto the charcoal grate and arrange to your preference.
  3. The chimney starter will still be hot, so allow to cool on a heatproof surface.
