Best way to fire up a WSM is a weed burner. Harbor Freight ~$35 You don't need a chimney. Concentrate the flame in 4 spots, and add the wood chunks on top. Should take you 8-12 mins to lighter up. I would also send back your Maverick thermometer and get yourself a thermopen. It is much more useful in probing meat for tenderness and temperature. I know its expensive, but it next to the smoker itself is the one piece of bbq equipment you will really need.
