I'd love to know if this works.

I'm going to get one. You can light up less charcoal in the larger one, but I find it somewhat unwieldy and takes up more space.

What I am more interested in though is the table shown in the video. Where can I get one of those??

I want one. One windy days here, I sometimes have issues using my big chimney for small, Minion Method loads. The narrower diameter should help pack the small number of coals tighter.

I got one for Christmas. Thank you Santa!

Where it really shines is how quickly I can fire up a small amount of coals. To fire up half a chimney (perfect amount of KB to do Minion method in my mini WSM) only takes five minutes using the Touch N Go on the Performer.

I have not done a side by side against the big chimney with equal amounts of coals in both to see if it is faster, but my informal impression so far says it is. I know it definitely is for the small amounts I use for minion method for the mini.

turn the big one upside down. fill with charcoal. put paper under and light.

I'm ordering Craycort grates in a few days for my Performer and am thinking I'd like to put this on there as well. If no one confirms before then, I'll post.

I was seriously considering the purchase of the smaller chimney till I saw your ingenious idea! Gonna try that one real soon. Meh... I will probably still buy the little guy.
