Ok everyone, I got this
. I use a Webber Charcoal Kettle often, and have my ignition technique down to a science. I fist ball up individual sheets of newsprint, not glossy paper, usually four pages worth. I place those in the bottom of the kettle and pour used cooking oil over the paper leaving a bit of uncovered paper on each ball. Next, put the grid that hold the charcoal, or wood directly over the newsprint. Add charcoal. Ignite the paper with all grill vents wide open. The oil causes the fire to last long enough to ignite all of the charcoal bottoms. Then natural convection currents, and reflective heat cause the charcoal to fully burn/smoulder. While the charcoal is heating, prepare the food. By the time the food is ready to be cooked, the charcoal is ready to do its work.
Not only is this the fastest way to ignite charcoal, but it uses up used cooking oil as well.
