I've been using these cubes for a couple years now and always under the coals. I really like the ease of use and how fast they get the coals going. And if I'm heating up a Dutch oven or cast iron skillet, I can set it over the fire as soon as I light the cubes...no need to wait. But if I'm grilling or smoking I do make sure the cubes are completely burned before adding food to the grill. I do not smell them but the old man says they do give off an odor that he doesn't like. Also, make sure you keep them in their package until ready to use. I was going to give a few away one time to a friend and put about 3 in a Ziploc bag. Never gave them to my friend but a few weeks later I did try to use them and they would not light. It was like they had dried out and were more like Styrofoam.

We also use them to start our fires in the fire pit! Much safer than throwing gas on it. Not more fun but SAFER!

Yes, kept in the house the whole time. It was a 20lb. twin pack from Sam's. I think it was just a bad batch.

Im not positive but I think fatwood is strips of pine, rich in the resins and pitch that make pine burn so hot and fast...Sure its burned away and has no effect on the cook...I have thought of using it but...The cost plus the shipping...You know...

I've used the Weber cubes in the past but recently began using Tumbleweeds instead

I have never seen fatwood or tumbleweeds in stores around here. I have often thought of making my own starter cubes out of the egg cartons or toilet paper tubes and dryer lint but why do all that work when I can spend less than 4 bucks on the Weber cubes.

I'd likely feel better about that lint than what comes off of modern materials. If it were not for petroleum and chemists, we'd be pretty nekkid right now.

In my quest to find some weber starter cubes today I stumbled onto the tumbleweed starter at lowes today and picked up a box. Glad to hear they work.

Why mess with those cubes at 4 bucks a package when you can light hundreds of lump or briq fires with one of these for a whole lot less money in the long run? Only takes 10 seconds, go prep your meat and wah lah your fire is ready. Works great on the Amazn smoker as well
