r e t r a t s e Fir Chimney Starter Looftlighter A Chimney starter is an essential tool for any avid BBQer. They make the process of lighting your BBQ painless. They are so quick and clean to use, you will be ready to be cooking on your coals within 15mins. The Looftlighter is probably the quickest way to light your charcoal. The Looftlighter is a device that blows a small jet of extremely hot air towards the charcoal and within 1-2 mins you will be ready for cooking. 1. Fill your chimney with charcoal. 2. Put 2 or 3 firelighters in the base of your BBQ and light them. 3. Position your chimney over the lit firelighters. 4. Wait approximately 15mins. When you see the coals glowing through the vents and flames starting to flicker from the top your coals are ready. 5. Carefully pour them into the base of your BBQ, I recommend wearing some type of oven mits. 1. Put your desired amount of charcoal into the base of your BBQ. 2. Plug in your Looftlighter and then touch the end of the device onto your coals and press the button. 3. When sparks and a glow start to appear pull the device away slightly. 4. Continue to hold the Looftlighter in the same position for about 1 min. 5. That’s it!
