    Thanks for the tip. I picked one of these up as well. Haven't used it yet (we'll do so this weekend), and this may not work after it's been heated up a few times; but I was worried about losing the nuts and bolts, so I lined up all the edges flat, and bolted them together using two along each side, and the other four in the grill holes.

    I guess it depends on amount and brand of briquettes used.
    As you can see in the one photo, I had the 'grate' in the chimney set in the middle point, so not a whole lot of briquettes in it. Best guess would be 25 -30 Kingsford Briquettes

    The 1st time I tried it, I had the grate in the lowest setting and had it filled to the top with some Royal Oak briquettes, as I was grilling a large, thick steak and they were more than ready in just over 10 minutes.

    I was pleasantly surprised at just how well/fast it worked

    I'm still amazed every time I use it that it works at all (I guess I'm easily impressed). No more soaking with lighter fluid, one match and one piece of newspaper and in a few minutes and you are ready to go.

    Cat's meow? ... I thought it was ... "Bob's your Uncle" ...

    I've done so much with so little for so long ... Now I can do nearly anything with almost nothing.

    Mine were delivered yesterday. This is one thing I was missing at the Northwoods. Lighting coals for the DO is a real PITA without one.

    The deepest spot in Lake Superior, The largest of the Great Lakes is 1,333 feet or about 222 fathoms. This profound depth could easily contain the entire 1,250' Empire State Building, even with a 50-foot-tall King Kong perched atop.
