BBQ Charcoal Starter Kit: Your Mobile Chimney

For people new to grilling or just unfamiliar with BBQ starter kits, this section is for you. A BBQ charcoal starter kit is essentially a mobile metal chimney that allows the grill master to avoid the hassle of using lighter fluid. Instead, the charcoal starter kit provides a way to quickly heat up charcoal in a controlled and efficient fashion.

The BBQ charcoal starter is typically shaped like a metal funnel. Inside of the funnel there are two separate grates. These grates, located both toward the bottom and top of the metal chimney, are filled with small holes -- like a grater. The reason for these holes is for improved and efficient air flow. The entire charcoal starter kit should be about a foot tall and built to last. Most models end up lasting their owner nearly 10 years before a replacement is necessary.

To use the charcoal starter kit all the cook needs to do is place some newspaper, or even a lighter cube, beneath the chimney and underneath the starter kit's grate. Light the newspaper or lighter cube and then fill the top of the charcoal starter kit with your charcoal. Allow the flame from the newspaper to burn anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes and your charcoal will be ready to go.

Aside from being easy to use, the best BBQ charcoal starter kits are incredibly mobile and easy to manoeuvre. You want to be able to quickly move the starter kit on and off the grill as needed. You also want to be able to keep the starter kit out of the way of your guests during its cool down phase.

When purchasing a BBQ charcoal starter kit there are precious few things you really need to worry about. Make sure that you get the right size for your grill and don't feel compelled to spend an arm and a leg. These products are functional and effective, as well as a huge improvement to your grilling days.
