The Charcoal Starter is a quick, safe and efficient way to start charcoal for your charcoal barbecue grills. For outdoor use only, this Charcoal Starter uses a chimney effect that concentrates heat to light the charcoal. Made from aluminized steel with a cool-touch handle (although, grill gloves are recommended when hot) for long-lasting use. Have charcoal hot and ready to use in minutes, the Charcoal Starter holds enough charcoal to fill most charcoal barbecue grills. To use, fill the underside of the Charcoal Starter with loosely crumpled newspaper or paper towel. Turn the Charcoal Starter over and fill the main chamber with as much charcoal as needed for your cook – a few large chunks of hardwood lump charcoal for smoking, up to a full load for some high heat searing. Once filled, light the paper on fire through the bottom vents of the starter. Allow the paper to burn off, which ignites the bottom coals. The heat from the bottom coals rises igniting the rest. Using heat-resistant gloves, lift the Charcoal Starter by the handle and pour the lit charcoal into your barbecue grill. Clever, multifunctional and easy to maintain, every kitchen benefits from the addition of a Napoleon barbecue accessory. Our accessories provide you with the essentials to create delicious grilled food and then some to enhance your cooking arsenal with a wide variety of creative additions to broaden your culinary horizons.
