Charcoal lighter fluid
Additional recommended knowledge
The use of lighter fluid is somewhat controversial -- the substance is highly flammable and toxic and is said to impart an unpleasant flavor to food cooked on it. Using denatured alcohol ("methyl hydrate", "methylated spirit") instead of commercial petroleum-based lighter fluids avoids this problem. Petroleum-based charcoal lighter fluid is illegal in some jurisdictions due to its potential to cause photochemical smog by means of evaporation of its volatile organic compounds. A common substitute is a chimney starter.
