If there's a Wegman's near you, they carry them.

I usually don't fill my small chimney all the way, so a Weber would be way too big for my use.

I'm with you on this Martin. beercheer.gif

 

I turn mine upside down and fill it about half way when I use my UDS.

I use the side burner on my Char-Griller for 30 to 60 seconds, then it's good on it's own.

I suppose you noticed my "slight modification". Yeah, I can't leave anything alone.

This helps me get the coals right where I want them when adding into the big smoker.

It acts as a back board when filling the chimney also!

Our local supermarket (HEB) carries Diamond brand. I learned the hard way that they carry both the strike-anywhere and the strike-on-the-box kind. You ain't had fun until you fish around in your pocket for matches that won't strike on the fire laid out for lunch when you've been fishin' since before the rooster crowed.

I was about to swear at - and off - Diamond brand until I picked up the box the next time and saw that it was the strike-on-box kind. Now I have about 20 boxes of the strike anywhere in doubled zipped bags in the freezer in plastic containers. So far I've seen no sign of them absorbing moisture.

Thanks Martin! Sadly there is no Wegman's around me - there's not anything around me but I like the peace & quiet & privacy  smile.gif  I have an uncle & two cousins in Quakertown & if I make it down their way for Christmas I can load up on them!  thumb1.gif

Cool, I like that too!
My place in PA is fairly secluded, I hope to get back there permanently sometime.

Ditto only difference is I light the edge of the basket and skip the chimney...Warming torches RULE!

Since I mostly burn real wood in my grill I use a propane torch.

BUT when I do use charcoal it goes in a chimney.

I think my project for next week while on vacation will be home made charcoal.....

hmm good idea on just lighting the edge and no chimney. I may just give a try in the a.m. on my ham by lighting just a corner of my fire tray.
