CHARCOAL LIGHTER

A Chimney Charcoal Grill Starter

Using an old piece of steel dryer vent or a piece of wood burning stove pipe you can create a charcoal starter and start your grill without using any heart burn causing charcoal lighter fluid.

Cut off a piece of at least 4" (6 inch works best but 4 inch will work as well) diameter steel dryer vent tube or stove pipe about 15* inches long or so. In the bottom 3 inches of the tube, drill about 4 or 5 one inch holes around the tube spaced evenly.

Put two or three sheets of newspaper wadded up in the bottom of the tube. Pour your charcoal on top of the newspaper and through the holes in the perimeter of bottom light the newspaper. In about ten or fifteen minutes your charcoal will be ready to use.

Using a pair of pliers lift off the tube and usually the charcoal falls into perfect position in the grill.


* If using the 4 inch tube make the tube a few inches longer to hold more charcoal.
