Forgive me but I am new to this fantastic site and message board and I have dumb question. I have seen alot of your comments about chimney starters and I don't believe I am familiar with them - unless I know them by another name. Where can I pick some up? I am real tired of dealing with lighter fluid.

Guest, most places that carry a line of charcoal grills in your local area will also sell chimney starters. You can also easily find them on-line using a seach engine or your favorite grilling accessories website. To get you familiar with the starter here's a link: ... 3?v=glance

They are worth it! I bought two from Academy for about $6 each.

If you've not done so already, why don't you join us?

Hope this helps

Guest, here are a couple of places you can look at pictures of them and order on line. They are well worth the few dollars.

Thanks so much for all the info on the chimney starters. I really appreciate it. I will definitely be adding them to my "must-have's"...I did join the board and I am looking forward to learning more about cooking from all of you. From the posts I have seen so far, I have already saved myself alot of bad experiences and bad meals.....Again thanks and I look forward to the learning!

I have definitly learned many great things from you fine forum folks and some great BBQ books 8) . Here are my top 10 things I'm so glad to know now:
1. Flames are not good under your food...ever
2. How much better a charcoal grilled steak tastes
3. Everything should not be grilled at the same temperature.
4. A good cut of steak is ruined by a marinade.
5. BBQ sauce is not a marinade, and is to be put on at the end to avoid blackened food.
6. You don't need a sauce to be BBQing.
7. How well charcoal grills control flareups.
8. That there is this wonderfull form of BBQ called indirect cooking.
9. How great real slow-cooked pork really is (Hey I'm a Texan!) :)
10. That everything is better cooked out on my porch rather than under my roof! :lol:

Keep your meat out of the flames! - Erik

Not to soak the wood chips whilst cooking a steak.
Not to drink all the rum and use it as the marinade it was bought for........
