Kountry Life How-To

Home made charcoal lighter
Take a piece of 6in. stovepipe about 2ft. long and drill 2 holes to place a damper in the middle. Drill about a dozen more holes randomly around the pipe staying only on one half of the pipe being divided by the damper. On the other half you need a handle. Drill a hole a few inches from the end and use s long bolt with nuts inside and out, tighten them in place. Stand it on end on the grill with a handfull of newspaper crumpled inside the end with all the holes. Make sure the damper is turned across the pipe and fill the top half with charcoal. Light fire to the paper and give it about 5 min.. Use a couple of pot holders (cause its gonna be hot) Grab the handle and turn the damper. You'll never by lighter fluid again.
