Make a pyramid of charcoal in the basket, and run a propane torch under there until you get some lit. Or, take some newspaper, ball it up really well, and dump some cooking oil on there, then build a charcoal pile around and on it. Light it and add more charcoal as time allows. Enjoy it! I love my WSM.
