Last Saturday I took a class in cooking with a camp dutch oven offered to adult Boy Scout leaders. An excellent class in how to eat well on camping trips.One of the pieces of equipment universally used was a charcoal chimney for lighting charcoal briquettes rapidly and without charcoal lighter. These devices are offered commercially for about $25., and are a sheet metal cylinder with a grill in the bottom, holes in the sides. The idea is that you load up the cylinder with charcoal and use newspaper under the grill or a burner flame of some kind to get the charcoal started. From that point, the cylinder carries the heat to the unlit charcoal above, lighting it rapidly and effectively.Not desiring to spend $25 wantonly, and also since I don't need a lot of charcoal in most cases, I found a tin cylinder sitting around the house, and used a drill to cut 1/2 inch holes in the bottom and sides, adding a wire handle.Works great!
