I always use the olive oil and paper towel or newspaper in my chimney but I am a recent convert to the gas grill side burner method. And for me the propane smoker base works great too, always hooked up anyhow..I just set the charcoal chimney on and light. So if doing small (using the ecb as a grill) or starting with charcoal and then going propane that works great.
