Maybe I just have bad luck with wind or some bad cubes. Mine have a habit of extinguishing.

At $10 you can't really kick yourself for buying it

That's the idea! Expect I can do the same thing with one of my starter squares.

I use SureStart fire starter squares--I cut one in half, space them out a little on the grill of my smoker (which I have removed from the firepan-holder bottom, and set on the fireproof tiles of my smoker "platform"), light each, set the chimney over them, then give the chimney a quarter turn in 5 minutes or so...lights the charcoal quickly and quite evenly. (But one whole square in the center works well too.)

A large box of 144 is $20.76 on Amazon--about 15 cents a light, which seems cheap to me, but someone else may have gotten a better deal on their starters.

I sit my full sized chimney on my $50 60k BTU propane burner (about 12 times stronger than a typical gas grill side burner) and ALL of it gets lit up and ready within 2 minutes :) I run the flame at full blast for like 1 minute and after another minute it's ready :)

I have my lil' mini wsm ready in 5 minutes.. and about another 5 mins or so to heat up after the coals are in it.
