What do you use?  Do you start a fire with store bought charcoal?  Do you use a "chimney" http://www.virtualweberbullet.com/chimney.html.  Do you use a "weed burner" http://www.harborfreight.com/propane-torch-91033.html?hft_adv=10061&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=weed%20burner&utm_campaign=Match%20-%20Exact&gclid=CLCNzv6PvKYCFQEGbAodWCXWGwto fire up your coals prior to cooking?

Do you use lighter fluid?

Post up what you use to start your cooking fire.

I use a chimney starter.  Some cool dude gave me one awhile back so I have two.  Grin I recently started using weber paraffin starters instead of paper.  They work well and make less mess.

I may need to try some of those paraffin starters.  Newspaper tends to hold a lot of moisture out here and can be tough to keep lit.

I like Diesel fuel it gives me good dark smoke.

Log lighter on the side of the fire box.

Personally, at home...I use a chimney.  I use lump charcoal with newspaper.  At comps, we have the supertorch...goes much faster!   Grin

Over the past year, we've been using phonebook paper to light our chimneys.  Honestly, do people even use those any more?
