Default Weber fire start cubes...?

Has anyone ever used Weber fire starting cubes? I saw this guy use one in this video and it looked a lot easier (messier) than news paper.

I guess I'll have to look a little harder in the grilling aisle...

I love them. You don't get the billowing smoke you get with paper that freaks out your neighbors. City living.

Paraffin wax is a petroleum bi product of the gasoline making process. Lighter fluid is a petroleum based product. Newspaper ink makes me sneeze when I read the paper, so I wonder what's in it when it burns.

Bottom line, make a fire any way you are able, cook THEN eat.

I used to use them ALL the time but now just occasionally because i use a torch more often....they are handy though. I never used the chimney with them but rather put one in the edge of the basket buried a little, light it and open the vents. It doesn't take long for a good fire and you save a step

Kamado Joe also makes some really good fire starters. They burn a little longer than the Weber Cubes and are cheaper....

I have used the Weber cubes for years and still have a few boxes, but if I use a small starter I use the Kamado Joe starters now. But for starting the Kamado's, I use a Looftlighter all of the time.

A cotton ball soaked in 90% alcohol works well too. Much cheaper also.
