Fire UP Charcoal Starter Wand Lets You Ditch the Lighter Fluid

by Shane McGlaun

One of the worst things about cooking burgers or steak on the grill is having to start the charcoal. For me it always seemed like the charcoal started up well enough, and then as soon as the fluid burned off, the coals were cold as ice and the meat never cooked. Inevitably, I’d hose the charcoal down with enough lighter fluid that everything came off the grill hours later rare and tasting of soot and fuel. This is why gas grills were invented.

If you prefer the taste and smell of charcoal, this starter wand will take some of the anger and rage out of starting the grill. It uses very hot air to start the charcoal burning. It works with charcoal, wood chips, and pellets. You do have to plug the gadget in for it to work.

An integrated kickstand keeps you from burning the house down when the starter needs to cool down. There’s no indication of just how fast it starts the grill a burning, but you can try it for $49.99(USD) at ThinkGeek. It’s got to be better than waiting hours to eat cold burgers hot off the grill.
