I have tired everything from Cowboy Coal, pellets, match light, mice, flares (the most fun), electric BBQ lighter, etc. Some methods worked but weren't fail proof and most were smelly and messy. Tonight I tried something new and it worked perfectly with zero smell. I made a bed of coal on the grate and then took my hand held map torch and stuck the flame in the bed. In about 3 minutes I had some red coal. I turned on the blower and that was it. Easy with no smell or mess. Mice and flares and still the most fun.
