I had the opportunity to try out the Afirepuck Fire Starter recently. Now, I normally light my charcoal with a MAPP torch but have used lots of other methods over the years. These starter pucks are individually packaged and sealed in tins. They should store for a long time and travel nicely for tailgates and the like.
I was cooking some pork tenderloin on the Big Green Egg and had lots of time for puck to burn and get my lump charcoal started. The puck burned for about 15 minutes (as advertised) and left no odor or noticeable waste behind.
Here's a link to the product page over at afireinc.com. A half dozen pucks will set you back $12.99. They met my expectations and are certainly effecitve fire starters.
