Fire up your grill the easy way by igniting the charcoal with our chimney, then use the drop-out bottom to quickly release the red-hot coals. No more dealing with flying sparks when adding fiery briquettes to the grill – just pull the lever to open the trap door and deposit your coals.

  • Innovative chimney has a drop-out bottom that releases red-hot coals by just pulling the lever.
  • Charcoal is ready for grilling in about 15 minutes – without using lighter fluid.
  • Load the cylinder with briquettes, light up a fire starter or crumpled newspaper under your grill grate, then set the chimney over the flame.
  • Ergonomically designed handle has a comfortable rosewood grip.
  • Heavy-gauge stainless-steel construction ensures maximum durability.
  • Over time, exposure to the fire will change the color of the polished steel, causing it to acquire a rich patina.
  • Take care to wear a protective glove when using this product.

  • Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless waste of money Came missing a nut to attach the drop bottom. Useless without it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Charcoal Chimney ROCKS! A nice variation on the standard charcoal chimney. Nice big holes to improve circulation significantly reduces charcoal lighting time. Due to high heat, stainless steel coating is rapidly damaged and will rust. Overall a good addition to any outdoor charcoal event.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Start[er] Love the bottom drops open design. Easy to use! We don't like the taste of petroleum based starters and have used chimneys for years. This is the best model so far. Lots of air circulation for good ignition. Convenient placement of handles and starter is not too heavy to handle easily. Ordered a second one just in case this stops being manufactured! 50 year grillers!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grill so easy A Chimney at it's best. The ease of this chimney makes home grilling so much more fun and relaxing. It saves time, connivence, and saving on use of charcoal. Well made and designed, it even looks great.
