Essentials Four (Charcoal Revisited 5/21/11)
How do you, get your charcoals started?
I use Weber Lighter Cubes #7417. With these and a charcoal chimney, I have 10 to 50 charcoals in 10 minutes. Even on a windy day. I have used the news papers in the chimney, with out any good results. You can make a pile of charcoals on your table and soak it with lighter fluid. that work well, but I don't like the smell of starter fluids. I even tried the scouts method of cardboard and wax. these cubes have been the best for me. You can make a chimney out of small barrels, or large cans. Weber makes a very nice one.
