The folding charcoal chimney starter has a 7 pound capacity and folds flat for easy storage. So why a folding charcoal chimney? It is great anywhere that space is at a premium, like when you are camping, tailgating or on a RV trip. This chimney folds down so that it can fit into tight spaces and can be stored in some small charcoal grills. It also can be used as a small stand alone charcoal grill so it is ultra portable for that use.
This folding charcoal chimney starter assembles (without tools) in less than 15 seconds and collapses even quicker, breaking down into 3 easy-to-store components. The durable, electrolyte plated carbon steel reservoir with its smart square design holds more charcoal than most standard size chimney starters, about 110 briquettes (or 7 lbs), giving you all the heat you need, but the stay cool handle…well, it stays cool.
For the die-hard griller nothing is better than grilling with charcoal and nothing worse than your food tasting like lighter fluid. The folding charcoal chimney eliminates that bad taste in your mouth by getting rid of the lighter fluid all together. Your charcoal will light with a few crumpled sheets of newspaper or a paraffin fire starter or even Doritos.
To use the folding charcoal chimney
After assembly just fill the top portion with your coals. It does not need to be filled to capacity to work, fill it at least half way though. Take 2 sheets of crumpled newspaper and stuff into the bottom. Set the chimney into your grill on the charcoal grates. Light the newspaper through the holes in the side. A long lighter is handy for this. Then we wait. Depending on the wind and type of charcoal your coals should be ready 4thegrill (see what I did there?) in 10 to 20 minutes.
