rarely in stock online and generally hard to get shipped to Oz, good price if you have been after one
Weber Compact Chimney, ~ $25
Weber Compact Chimney, ~ $25
Doesn't look wide enough for Santa to get through…
No, but it's wide and hot enough for Satan
This is not for santa, it's for low n slow cooking of the reindeers
Wait a minute. Santa & Satan have exactly the same letters slightly rearranged…
I have a $10 Jumbuck from Bunnings, would this do a better job?
Jumbuck one works fine, what issues are you having?
None at all, just wondering if "upgrading" to Weber would be better.
Bunnings one will be fine, but as a user of a Weber go anywhere, this is fantastic as it packs into the ga if you travel with it and also fits the right amount of charcoal you would use in a smaller bbq such as the go anywhere
I was used to fit inside a baby formula tin to reduce the size, then I realised I can just fill the starter to half and ditched the tin
Save the money and spend it on extra meat.
any good stainless steel ones for under $40?
Bunnings has a few charcoal chimneys/charcoal starters, all under $20. Give them a feel when you visit the store.
I think bunnings doesn't have any stainless steel ones
Look in a Greek, Turkish, or Middle Eastern Store.
Speaking from experience I have a fantastic SS Charcoal Chimney from a big Greek Warehouse store here in SA, cost about $20 from memory.
Will try, lots of middle eastern in SYD!
Cheers, got one for the PBC
Bottom removed off a Nescafe blend43 tin works great
Or those big catering size fruit tins, baby formula tins work just as well too.
Something of comparable quality is this at only $20 all year around at Bunnings:
I have the cheaper Jumbuck one ~ $10 at Bunnings, the Aldi one ~ $8 and Chargriller. Both the Jumbuck and Aldi ones are rusty (but work fine) the Chargriller is like new, holds much more coal than the other two (I'd say about 1.5 times the volume).
Thanks very much mate :) I'll get the $20 bunnings one you've recommended.
Even the Weber one will rust
Sounds like the Chargriller one is the best
Thanks for that! Have been after one and this is exactly what I had in mind to take my BBQ game to the next level.
Does rusting really matter for this use case?
Me aswell, does rust affect the cooking??
Thanks, I prefer the $20 bunnings one.
Heatbeads one is the best full size one imo, it has a higher heat shield guard at the handle which helps wen u pack the coal to the brim. The handle is solid and easy to handle. You can buy it at Bunnings
Perfect for use on a total fire ban day.
There's no TOBAN anywhere in NSW.
Maybe not today? but there has been TOBAN several times in NSW this month and last month…
Wait, are you allowed to do a bbq on a TOBAN day?
No, but there's no TOBAN.
Yes, if it's electric or gas. No if it's wood, charcoal, heat beads or other flammable material.
No on TOBAN days you can't do bbq (Besides from Gas and Electrical), there's no TOBAN today but there is a TOBAN Tomorrow for Several regions in NSW. (Use the Table view)
Thanks to you and jason andrade, I got a bit ocnfused by what he said!
I use to start my smoker with one of these then I discovered blow torches.
I used to use my mapp torch to start the chimney starter. True story.
