Got me one of those chimney charcoal starters the other day. The type that you pour charcoal into the top and stuff the bottom with newspaper....... MUCH better than lighter fluid. Wish that I had bought this gizmo years ago. EVERYTHING taste better and I don't get indigestion like I used to with fluid. Got mine at Walmart for eight bucks. And you ought to see how hot those briquettes are when you pour them out.
