What?? The lighter fluid?? Nothing wrong with it if you roll that way.
I don't, so I use a chimney to light a few coals and then place them in the basket to do a minion style burn.
You have to look at it from a marketing stand point (this has been discussed before) but Noah's market for the PBC was to be for people that want a no nonsense cooker that is easy to use and light and turns out quality Q with little effort. Idk about you, but lighter fluid is a pretty simple way to start charcoal, albeit not the greatest idea in the minds of some of the BBQ world elite (again not his intended market). Even brethren have used the PBC with lighter fluid :gasp: and still have turned out quality Q with no adverse effects. The 20 min window is plenty of time to allow the fluid to fully burn off.
Its all about marketing my friend..
