Introduction: How to Light a Charcoal Grill With a Chimney

In this video I show you How To Light A Charcoal Grill with a Chimney.  For years I used the standard method of lighting my grill with lighter fluid but after getting frustrated with mixed results every time, I decided to go out and buy a chimney grill starter (link below) for my grill and I couldn't be happier.

I purchased mine at Lowes however you can buy a similar chimney on Amazon here -

This is my method (although there really isn't any other way to do it) of using a Charcoal Chimney to light Charcoal for grilling.  I enjoy using a chimney to light my grill because it's a fool proof way to get an even cooking temperature and hot grilling surface every time.  There are no chemicals (lighter fluid) that you are adding to the charcoal to invade the flavor of your food.  I love the fact that I'm also using less consumables (petroleum), and now I'm using newspaper that would have otherwise ended up in the landfill.  It's also cheaper to light a charcoal grill without lighter fluid.  Most of us have newspaper laying around the house but not lighter fluid.  I'm a fan and I wanted to share this little 'how to" tip with you.

By watching this video you will now know what it takes to successfully light a charcoal grill using a chimney.  No longer will you be asking yourself How to Light a Charcoal Grill with a Chimney.
