And one more thing. Go to your nearest hardware store or Fred Meyer and pick yourself up a propane torch, propane canister, and striker with which to light your coal. Don't bother with paper or a chimina-chimnea-chimeni-or-however-you-spell-that-starter. And definately don't use lighter fluid. bleh. Just hold the torch to the center of a pile of coals until you get some redness happening. Then close the lid and open both air vents wide. You'll be ready to go in about 10 minutes.
