GrillPro 39470 Chimney Charcoal Starter, Silver

-7 Deal Score
1,156 Views
This is a Grill Pro Chimney Charcoal Starter silver on sale at Amazon for $8.99 even less than WalMart.

WalMart has several charcoal grills on sale as summer is winding down.

This is the cheapest I've seen for a charcoal starter, regular price of $17.99, a savings of 50% and well made, respected brand.

There is even one used for $8.36 on Amazon.

One review of the charcoal chimney.

"Toxic

This item is made of galvanized steel. The zinc coating will burn away as you use it emitting toxic smoke. The picture is after ~10 uses."

I'm curious of electric charcoal starter however.

Looks pretty cheaply made and reviews seem to agree. Don't be fooled by the good rating. I think it is for the electric starter

You can get charcoal chimneys from Walmart for under $10 regular price. I buy one every year.

Of course, but as a new person to the SD community, it would be much appreciated to show and teach, rather than list the things that are left out. Without knowing the background. Be nice.

Grilled Foods Contain Cancer Causing Chemicals. And when the fat drips onto the coals and there is a flare Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons ( PAHs) , another family of carcinogens are formed. The smoke carries these hydrocarbons which coat the food we eat. PAHs also form with charring. Exposure to PAHs are correlated with increased rates of stomach cancer.

This is in all of our grilling techniques. Both charcoal and gas. Didn't feel the need to go into the school of grilling and what it does. I just saw a good price for a chimney that could last a summer. I don't think these are to last a lifetime. Was cheaper that all places checked.

I see your point, I'm also not looking for a chimney that only lasts ONE summer.

Thanks for the explanation on why grilling makes food so tasty.
