    Pre-soak half the briquettes in liquid oxygen, mix all together in the chimney, and light remotely. (Don't be anywhere near it when the fire starts!)

    I use a hairdryer that no longer heats up as my fan. The same one I use for my forge.

    Instead of drilling a bunch of large holes in the tube and cranking the knob, maybe see what fewer, smaller holes does when directed toward the center and top of the chimney, while slowly increasing the o2 feed.

    Using lump hardwood charcoal with the chimney will burn so much easier... it takes 0 time

    Me: Ahem, the FASTEST method to start charcoal is LIQUID OXYGEN

    • TheAttacker732

      @Robert Lockard The point is to have a fire that isn't trying to poison you though... Even using ozone as an oxidizer isn't prone to doing that.

    • Robert Lockard
      Robert Lockard

      @TheAttacker732 Try Flourine...... (#9 on the periodic table), it's an even more aggressive oxidizer than liquid oxygen

    • TheAttacker732

      Liquid ozone would probably beat that. Although there's a chance that it'll just explode horribly on contact.

    What would happen if you used oxygen in the foundry? Would it raise the temperatures to melt high melting point materials?

    @the king of random.. Next time use a heat gun for removing paint.. Its mutch easier and safer because you direct the heat. I would say 5 to 10 min for a large bbq

    Hey Nate, How is life? I don't know, its alright. I've been dealing with some things like every human being and really didn't sleep muchlast night. I'm sorry. Thats fine. Like you know it

  • tastyfrzz1

    Put the charcoal in a bag. Pipe in oxygen and just hold it a minute. Then pour into grill and light. It will absorb the gas and burn like a flare.

    Video idea try to make a door knob glow with heat with the electric charcoal lighter

  • Crazy

    Heads up, you put too much charcoal into that chimney. They also work better with lump and not briquettes. My personal favorite is the heat gun most home owners have in their garage. Stack the lump charcoal like you would for lighter fluid, set the heat gun near the bottom and let it rip. It usually only takes a few minutes to get the charcoal started and you can move the thing around. I'm usually ready to cook in 10 minutes. Looking to upgrade a chimney to use the heat gun to maximize efficiency and make it great for smoking.

  • poooop89

    Chimney and lighter fluid works best

  • Tech4All

    If you want charcoal that lights well and stays lit for a long time don’t use Kingsford! Get lump charcoal
