Weber® Chimney Starter

The Weber® Chimney Starter is probably Weber's most popular and must have barbecue accessory.  Its the easy way to light and prepare perfectly glowing briquettes every time.

The Weber® Chimney Starter holds precisely the amount of briquettes required for barbecuing in a 57cm charcoal barbecue. The bottom grate is conical, so it makes the most of the chimney effect.

Simply fill with Weber® Briquettes place a fire lighter or crumbled newspaper underneath the chimney starter and light.  In under 20 minutes your coals will be ready to cook over - carefully pour the hot coals along the bottom grate of your barbecue or into Weber® Briquette Holders for an easy way to manage controlled grilling.

Using the Weber® Chimney Starter means no more lighter fluids, gels or other chemical lighting methods which can get into the flavour of your food.

The required barbecue temperature and preparation time mentioned in the recipe that dictates how many briquettes to use.
A rough guide is: 

180-190 °C = _ chimney starter.

240-250 °C = _ chimney starter.

280-290 °C = 1 chimney starter.
