Which chimney starter for a WSM 18.5" ?

post #1 of 7

Should I go with the Weber 7416 or the Weber 7447? Or other?

Hi SXIPro,

 

I have the big chimney for mine, as it varies how many lid coals I use. I was afraid that the small one would limit me too much.

Use the one ya' got. Don't matter.

I have both, but it seems I use the small one the most. Keeps me for using too much charcoal.

I don't use a chimney to start any of my smokers. Wastes fuel. I fill my charcoal basket and light with a propane torch through the lower vent in the WSM 18. All your heat and fuel stays in the smoker and your smoking with unspent fuel so you get the full benefits of the fuel. Your out temp comes up to temp faster and there is less white smoke.
