That all being said - you should go kill yourself...immediately.
Matchlight? Are you ****ing kidding me? Lighter fluid in general is awful and that matchlight shit is the most god-awful, meat ruining substance to ever grace God's green earth. I believe it was invented when Hitler was in charge of research and development for Kingsford.
As others have said - WTF is so difficult about a chimney starter? Start your coals and wait 10 minutes. It's ridiculously easy and involves zero lighter fluid (seriously...I can't believe someone just suggested matchlight on filets. Has that person killed himself yet?). Get your steaks out of the fridge and let them come down a bit while you're waiting for the coals to burn and you're in good shape.
There's nothing that can be done on a grill that doesn't take 10 minutes unless you're talking about hot dogs. Making hamburgers? It's going to take you 5-10 minutes to season and form. Chicken? Seasoning and patting. Steaks? Season, pat and rest. Everything on a grill takes 10 minutes or so of prep.
So why someone believes you can't just use that ten minutes while waiting for the coals to glow is just beyond me.
I fail to understand what kind of grill you use has any bearing on how big of a man you are. If you shoot your animal and then grill it on a pink gas mini grill u are still a bigger man than some charcoal grilling fat ass who sits outside for hours blowing at his little charcoals.
