Come on baby, light my fire January 6, 2010

I tried to use our grill this week to make some dynamite teriyaki kabobs.  After spending a while (maybe 40 minutes) getting the coals to light, it was obvious that I wouldn’t actually be cooking them very quickly, so I had to abandon the grill for the broiler.  However, I do not go down without a fight.

Thus, I endeavored to build a homemade charcoal chimney.  It’s a little frankenstein-ish, but I’m pretty sure it’ll get the job done.  I really wanted to find some metal ducting, as that would have been easier to start with — alas, all I could find was sheet metal.  Oh well, function over form, right?   I’m curious as to how everyone else in this country lights their charcoal, since I haven’t seen any lighter fluid anywhere.

I’ll try to remember to report back on how it works tonight 🙂

Sheet metal and tin snips are a bad combination...

All-thread is handy stuff!

Do we really need a 3rd picture of this thing? Yes, yes we do.
