    Small product picture of a chimney starter review.

    Mankind has been preparing meals with fire for centuries now, but only in the past few decades have we harnessed gas for cooking. Many purists still enjoy cooking with wood or charcoal fueled fires despite one major downside. Charcoal fires may provide a better taste to meals in the minds of many, but waiting for charcoal to warm up is a deal breaker for many others. Avoid this stumbling block with the help of the Weber Rapidfire Chimney Starter. This chimney starter is constructed of aluminized steel and features a stay-cool thermoplastic handle, letting you heat up your coals while keeping your hands safe.

    The bbq chimney starter features a cone bottom for faster starting, and lights up charcoal quickly and evenly. A handful of chimney starter systems are available for purchase. Determining which model works for any one individual will depend upon the number of coals they need prepared as the biggest difference between many chimney starters is capacity. Online reviewers were unanimous in their praise for the Weber Rapidfire Chimney Starter. The lone problem that both five star and one star reviewers pointed out was a poorly designed handle. Many reviewers found that Weber’s thermoplastic handle did in fact become very hot with each use. All these reviewers pointed out that a wooden handle would not have experienced the same issue and is often used on smaller, less expensive models. Charcoal grilling is the best way to get great flavor from your barbecue, but waiting for those coals to warm up deters many. This is easily avoided with great tools like the Weber Rapidfire Chimney Starter.
