Love chimney starters. They do work

A must have for anyone who owns a charcoal barbecue. Place your charcoal in the chimney starter with a few firelighters underneath and it will heat in no time. Use with charcoal and firelighters to get your charcoal burning.
Material: Chrome Plated Steel
Features: Ideal for starting your charcoal bbq - simply place a few firelighters on your charcoal grill or the base of your BBQ and place the chimney starter (full of charcoal) over the flames. Wait until the charcoal is lightly covered with grey ash and then pour it onto the charcoal grill and you're ready to get cooking.
Usage restrictions: For outdoor use only
Safety details: Keep out of reach of children
Weight: 0.9kg
Dimensions: (H)28, (W)17cm
Length: 17cm

These work really well.
I was lucky enough to buy one from Homebase last September for only 49p when they were doing the final end of summer reductions so it may be worth keeping a look out.
But even at £4.93 it's a hot price.

You can just as easily use newspaper instead of firefighters

I build a ring myself.takes me ages but satisfying.contemplating a purchase ...

Get the Weber one. It cost much more but holds more coals and is just better made.

Two sticks and some flint! Where's your sense of adventure?

What's next - a fire log? Oh wait....

​Yep, one great thing about these is that you don't need to use the toxic chemical starters! A sheet or two of paper has always worked for me.

I would say that these chimney starter kits are ideal if you want to get a feel for chimneys and see if they are your thing before committing hard earned cash to a full on chimney for your roof.

Brilliant piece of kit, makes barbecuing so much more easier and charcoal is evenly hot. Only downside is that it produces loads of smoke for a few minutes when first lit. Got mine from tesco 2 years ago for £2.50 each.

Got one last month, so much better than the cheaper alternative but Weber do good products anyway.

Paper creates a ton of ash, and if it's a bit windy then it gets all over your food. I find putting a little bit of vegetable oil into a squirty bottle to spray on the coals works wonders and catches fire immediately without chemicals. Use olive oil if you're feeling a bit flush and want it to smell even better.

​At least the firefighters will come in handy if it goes pear shaped!

wait until the coals are 'white hot ' before cooking anything or you get the carcinogenic coal fumes
