The JETFIRE™ Chimney Starter is a quick, safe and efficient way to start charcoal for your charcoal barbecue grills. Have charcoal hot and ready to use in minutes, the JETFIRE™ Chimney Starter holds enough charcoal to fill most charcoal barbecue grills. To use, fill the underside of the JETFIRE™ Chimney Starter with loosely crumpled newspaper or paper towel. Turn the JETFIRE™ Chimney Starter over and fill the main chamber with as much charcoal as needed for your cook – a few large chunks of hardwood lump charcoal for smoking, up to a full load for some high heat searing. Once filled, light the paper on fire through the bottom vents of the starter. Allow the paper to burn off, which ignites the bottom coals. The heat from the bottom coals rises igniting the rest. Using heat-resistant gloves, lift the JETFIRE™ Chimney Starter by the handle and pour the lit charcoal into your barbecue grill.
