When I bought my CG Akorn last year I started using cotton balls saturated with 91% rubbing alcohol to light my lump. It's quick, easy, and readily available at your grocery store. I can have temps around @ 500 degrees within 15-20 minutes of lighting (just did this tonight for red hot beef kabobs).
