I have a combo gas/ charcol grill with a side burner. The side burner was designed to accomodate a starter chimney. I just set my loaded chimney over the side burner, ignite it and once the briquets start I move the chimney to a cement block next to the charcol side and wait till its ready. Works great and don't have to burn paper.
