Don't think I woud pay $12 + shipping, tho. When we still used charcoal (last century), we used an empty coffee can with the bottom cut out; same idea as mango's link and a lot cheaper.

I still do it the old fashioned way. If I know we'll be eating around 3:00 I start the coals at 2:30.

They do work well though. My friend uses on just like that one.

I keep my big coffee cans and cut slots in the sides after removing the ends. Can't see paying a store for a chimney when I can make one that lasts half the summer. Paper in the bottom, charcoal and then your choice on using lighter fluids.
