Default Awesome my WSM is assembled

My WSM arrived early. I just got done assembly now I need charcoal. The only bad thing is that amazon did not ship my charcoal starter what can I do to fire this beast up? Also what is the reason for that rubber peice I had to put in that hole in the middle section?

the rubber piece is a grommet for a hole in the midsection to allow you to pass a temp probe through. Got lighter fluid ;) j/k did you get the weber starter cubes? put one down, light it and start putting some coals on top until you have them lit. Get smoking

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.

Congrats on the new cooker. Lowe's does sell starter cubes, so you should be good.
