Step 2: Build and Ignite the Tower
First, I crumple up some newspaper paper and shove it down to the bottom of my chimney. I try not to use magazines or glossy paper as they don't burn completely.
Then, I pour in a whole bunch of coals on top of that. I have started using the real wood charcoal chunks, rather than the "Kingsford" style briquets. I think they burn hotter and taste a bit better. Mmm. Eat coal.
Once the tower is built, I light the paper from the bottom and watch as the heat and fire ignites the coals above the crumpled paper.
