Starter

For charcoal grills, a starter is a useful contraption. It holds charcoal in its base and is a good way to establish a secure beginning for a cooking flame.

shop Starter
Cooking.com

Lighting charcoal briquettes is often a time-consuming process. Skip the lighter fluid and use the Steven Raichlen 12-in. Chimney ...Starter to light your briquettes easily and safely. Add a few crumpled sheets of newspaper to the chimney's lower chamber, and then pour charcoal into the upper chamber. Light the newspaper, and wait about 20 minutes for the charcoal to reach the proper temperature. The chimney forces heat up from the bottom at an even rate so all the briquettes are ready at the same time, giving you even heat distribution. Tall sides keep burning embers inside the chimney, and a sturdy wooden handle gives you a secure grip. When it is time to pour the lighted charcoal into the grill, flip up the grab bar and use it to help support the chimney as you hold it. The chimney's square corners allow you to push the hot briquettes around to fit your grill. Best Used For: Pack the chimney with your tailgate or picnic supplies to ensure you can get your grill going, even in windy conditions. The chimney holds enough charcoal to cook for a crowd, but you can adjust the number of briquettes to accommodate a smaller grill or less food. Features: Steel construction for long-term useWooden handle protects handsSquare shape for additional control read more

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

It's probably not until you experience the value and usefulness of accessories for grills and cooking outdoors that you can fully appreciate how small items really can accomplish great tasks -- and, in turn, make life easier. But like any other item that's for garden and outdoors, there is a host of options within each type of tool or item. What these items have in common are a few purchase considerations that are important to review. Those include price, adaptability, and flame retardance. Here's a quick guide to help you.

Price

Price varies based on the size of the accessory as well as the type. Some accessories are incredibly affordable and increase the capacity of the grill.

Adaptability

Many accessories are quite specific in their use, but some can be used for multiple types of foods. If storage space is a particular concern, then investing in multiuse accessories may be more economical and practical.

Flame Retardance

Any item that is designed to be used on a grilling surface should be impervious to flames. That includes the handle as well as any attachments.
