Very good

Takes the hassle out of starting the BBQ! Great product and quick delivery *****


I have found previous BBQs to be very difficult to light efficiently and to maintain significant heat. I use this on my small Kamado Joe which gets it fired up real quick and I can cook my food in a shorter amount of time rather than waiting for an age or using a hefty amount of firelighters. Additionally, this works perfectly with the smokey mountain. I have been experimenting using the minion method to cook my food on the smoker and this works well to fire a handful o briquettes and allow the head to spread through the rest of the briquette nest. Amazing!


Excellent piece of equipment. This replaces one we have had for over 20 years - good value for money.


This worked very well. 14 cubes is about 80% full. 15 mins approx to the point I could distribute the hot coals inside the barbecue. Never used one before, would recommend.


Excellent time saver


Probably a little small for the Weber Go-Anywhere, but works well if you want just enough coals to pile on one side for direct and indirect cooking.

It works well but I think it does not light enough charcoal briquettes for the portable bbq to work well.


Perfect size chimmy for small BBQ, well built.

Hazel S

My son has this and works reliably every time. So I bought some for Christmas presents for the men in the family.

Andrew M

Came as an extra when buying portable BBQ. Easy to use, less mess when lighting. Happy with this, thank you.

Great to receive tbe weber chimney starter as a free gift with purchase of charcoal grill. A must-have for lighting lump wood charcoal and briquettes. Does exactly what it claims: the fuel lights easily with a few sheets of newspaper and a match. Coals are red hot and ready to cook in 20 mins. It has transformed that part of the barbecue experience.

Carly S

This was a freebie when I purchased the portable barbecue but so glad we have it. Great idea


Good size for camping, trips away, etc. Great at getting coals up to temperature with no fuss

Lit the coals in record time. Quality and essential bit of kit.

Kevin B

Was scepticle but works a treat.

James S

I brought this for when we go camping, I haven’t used the portable starter yet but if it’s anything like the full size version it will change your BBQ life. Weber are famous for their quality BBQ produts and this looks and feels like a quality product.


Makes lighting stuff dead easy!

Will J

Simple to use and well made. Perfect size for the go-anywhere BBQ.

Pete S

As this is my first ever chimney starter I was eager to see how it performed. So first chance I had I used it on my main BBQ at home. Followed the instructions and filled the chimney with charcoal and stood it over four fire lighter blocks and left it to do its thing. Wow oh so hot and oh so easy, I wish I had bought one years ago! 10/10 Weber

Excellent service and quick delivery and item as expected. Thank you

andrew b

I bought this to go with my portable bbq, which it tucks nicely away inside of. Weber are known for good qualitity products and this is no exception.

Gavin P

Perfect kit for when you want to do the minion method in your smoker. Also great for when you have a smaller grill and you just want to do a steak.

Peter S

Really pleased I bought this product. Quick and efficient. My son has also bought one.

Nick M

Weber great quality as usual. Excellent service.

Louise S

Wish we'd bought one years ago. So easy to use, no fire lighters/lighting fuel needed just a couple of sheets of scrunched up newspaper does the job - perfect for using on our fab Weber Go-Anywhere.

Jo P

Fastest and easiest way to light a barbecue. An essential bit of kit. Highly recommended.

david b

nothing could be easier than a weber chimney starter, for starting your BBQ.The chimney safely contains the hot coals before you spread the coals on the fire grill.

Keith E

Makes lighting the barbecue so much easier - wish I'd have got one sooner
