Just fill your basket up maybe half way high... You won't need a full one. After you fill it just scoop out a handful of coals from the edge of the basket, light them and put them back in the same spot you took them.
I love lighting with this method because when I'm done I always have fresh unburned coals left behind for the next cook... and the partial burnt are my starters the next cook.
How many is in a handful? 6-8 ?
