I don't use a charcoal ring, maybe I'm missing something. I just line up my briquettes in a ring around the outside edge of the grate (on my kettle), light one end and let it burn it's way around. Does this "charcoal ring" enhance this or make it easier or what? I guess what I am asking is, what is the advantage to it?
