Best way to start a charcoal barbecue

I tried using a gas barbecue for a couple of years. I like charcoal grills much more. The food tastes better. And instead of using starter fluid, I use this Weber Rapidfire Chimney Starter ($15 on Amazon). I've had it since 2013. After four years, it's showing some signs of rust but is perfectly serviceable. To use it, you crumple a couple of sheets of newspaper and put it in the bottom chamber, and fill the top chamber with charcoal pieces or charcoal briquettes. Light the newspaper with a match and let it go to work. In about 20-30 minutes you'll have glowing coals. Pour them into the grill and start cooking.
