Best Small Charcoal Chimney Starter 2017
What is the best small charcoal chimney starter? That would be the Weber 7447 Compact Rapidfire Chimney Starter. This starter is a smaller version of their most popular Rapidfire chimney starter, which is the one I own. I like the Weber starters because they seem to hold up a lot better than cheaper models.
This charcoal chimney starter is perfect for small grills like the Smokey Joe, or a hibachi grill. It is great for taking along to the beach, tailgating, and to the park. It is quick and easy to light as well. Put some crumpled up newspaper underneath the starter, fill it with charcoal, and light it. It takes around 15 minutes to light up the charcoal. It has a stay cool handle, but I’d use some heat-resistant gloves anyway when pouring out the charcoal.
If you are looking to cut out the lighter fluid, and keep your foods from soaking in all the chemical fumes, you will want one of these starters. The small size is perfect for smaller grills and traveling. Weber makes some quality products, and this one is no different. It is worth checking out. Check it out here.
