Also...where do you store your charcoal. They absorb moisture. The more moisture...the harder they'll stay lit. Keep in very dry area, conditioned area, or in a container.

And forget using briquets. Damn things are made of who knows what and glued together with who knows what.

Ill second the natural charcoal but my experience is that it doesn't to as well in the chimney. It pops a lot and throws sparks everywhere.

So to fight that I will use a small amount(5 or 6) of briquets in a chimney and once they are ready pour them in the grill and cover them with the natural charcoal. The small amount of briquets burn out before the main coals are ready so you dont have any of that flavor.
