I'll be the first to admit that I get too excited about Weber products. It stems from my desire to eat well and the things I can cook with my various Webers. One annoying thing has been trying to light a few coals in the charcoal chimney. Weber solved that with a mini-chimney.
It's about perfect to light a load of lump for a Smokey Joe or perhaps a few briquettes to start a Minion method fire. I actually cheated in the picture above. I threw a handful of unlit lump under the chimney once I had it started.
And I never ever do dry runs. I roasted some red peppers (79¢/lb!) to make some roasted red pepper dip.
