I was also looking at a charcoal weber grill that apparently uses a Touch N Go iginition system (propane I guess) to light the charcoal. Would that or a chimney starter be more beneficial than the other?
Newspaper that you can normally scrounge up for free seems more beneficial to me vs propane or charcoal starter.
And you just have to dump the charcoal into the grill once it's going, it's not really a hassle at all.
