Gear Review for CampMaid Charcoal Chimney by Mike Shouts

CAMPMAID CHARCOAL CHIMNEY HEATS UP SUPER QUICK AND IT IS SUPER PORTABLE
You how it is when it comes to setting up a barbie: setting up the fire is a painstaking process and this handsome little guy, called Charcoal Chimney by CampMaid, is here to alleviate that ‘pain’. It is fine when you are in your backyard, but when you’re hitting up the wild, this super portable and collapsible chimney makes it easy to bring along and while it may be small, it is totally capable heating up to 40 charcoal briquettes at a time. Leveraging on a unique air funnel design, Charcoal Chimney sucks up air, as if wind is blowing through it, introducing a quick surge of powerful hot flames into the container and thereby, hastening the heat up process.
Other worthy mentions include the versatility to use with a variety of BBQ or grill, heat-safe handle to minimize heat-related injury, and a design that cool down as quickly as it is able to heat up charcoal briquettes, so in the event you need to pack it down and stash it away quickly, it can be done. Though we hardly think any camper will ever need a getaway this quick – unless they are unfortunate enough to be be pursued by a grizzly bear and can’t bear to risk Charcoal Chimney being trampled by this large furry animal, but it is a boon nevertheless.
If you are up for it, you can help CampMaid, who, btw, is no stranger to devising outdoor cooking gears, to realize this awesome outdoor cooking aid by supporting Charcoal Chimney’s Kickstarter campaign. For 50 bucks, you will secure yourself a CampMaid Charcoal Chimney and charcoal holder. For those residing in downunder, $26 will snag you a Charcoal Chimney. Unfortunately, CampMaid Charcoal Chimney only ships within the U.S.A. with the exception for the 26 dollars Australia-only special. Keep going for the product pitch video.
