It’s been a while but my Weber chimney has finally given up (after 4 years not too bad). I searched and searched but could not find any Australian retailer that stocked these chimneys.

Even though it is a slightly smaller size I foresee no problems whatsoever with using the Heat Beads barbecue starter. I will post a separate blog about my complete starter sequence shortly!

I hope that my Heat Beads barbecue starter will last for at least that amount of time!
