A couple minutes of propane and another 5-10 minutes to fully light a chimney. For a 'quick launch' I'd recommend lump as it seems to light faster. Like Foxfire, I close up and reuse charcoal when finished cooking.

One chimney easily hits 350º but I would go for two if I was aiming for 500º (Might hit that in the middle of a single chimney pile of charcoal.)

  • Charcoal Chimney - a must for any Weber owner!
  • ET-732 for measuring cooker and meat temperature
  • Cast Iron grate (look at the Stok grate at Home Depot or perhaps the Craycort.)
  • A head mounted lamp (your head, not the grill ) that you can use for grilling after dark - very useful on those short winter day.)
  • Cover to protect your investment
  • Basket for grilling vegetables.
