Which chimney? [part II]
« on: May 20, 2019, 12:16:57 PM »
This https://www.napoleon.com/en/us/grills/jetfire-chimney-starter-67801 is for sale here for the same price as the big Weber. Anybody have experience with this?

Kinda cool that it's stainless steel, but the spring-fit wire handle kinda looks like a lawsuit waiting to happen. I haven't seen one in real life but from the pics looks questionable.

I kinda like it.  Looks like the handles fold for storage.
Would love to get my hands on one and do a comparison.

If stuff wasn't like twice the price or more here, I'd get one. As it is I'm going to have to cough up around 40 bucks for either one.

No chimney is also an option. I soak up my bacon grease with half sheets of paper towels and store in a coffee can.

Tonight I started all used coal using two half sheets loosely crumpled in the coals. Works just fine and is completely free. I still use a chimney sometimes but this works almost as well.
