I wonder if there's some sort of chain or a stick with a hook on the end at a hardware store that someone could use to lift it in and out of the pbc. I guess I could use gloves, but even with gloves that thing would be hot.
It would be a pain, but I really wouldn't want to use lighter fluid. Goes against everything I was ever taught.
I filled the basket and put it in the PBC before dumping the lit charcoal in. It was a tight fit with s full sized Weber chimney, and a couple of briquettes missed the basket, but a pair of tongs fixed that. The new, smaller Weber chimney would probably be perfect.
