    Yeah STEbbq, I would never attempt a Weber cube in that since it would probably fall through long before it burned out.

ID:	1219344they look very similar to the ones I've been using from Lowes...
    similar price point as well, so may give these a go if Lowes is ever out of stock

    I have used those and they are quick starters compared to Rutland starters. They are more brittle and smaller than Rutland, but also less expensive. I use an old tuna can to start them with a chimney.

    The flat squares fit perfectly in the MB slot. The Weber cubes would have to be crushed up.

    How do you like these with the Masterbuilt gravity feed? I really like Tumbleweeds, but a lot of times they are too fat to fit in the charcoal grate.

    I have been working on my original box of Rutland squares for a while and I agree the design and overall concept is great. It looks like a lot more square type firestarters are available now so I’d be happy to give Melt a shot for my next box.

    I use Masterbuilt and they are also similar, I also like this type of firestarter. Best of all for me, the Masterbuilts are available in my local Walmart, I haven't seen these other brands here. One thing I have found is they don't light up completely quite as fast as a Weber cube, but a kitchen torch helps with that.

    Unlike the Weber cubes, you are much better off lighting these before putting charcoal on top of them. First couple of times I used them, I was ready to pitch the rest of the box straight into the trash. Once I learned the trick, they work great.

    Wok burner under the chimney works a treat if it's available

    I guess they melt in the fire not in your hand?

    Highly recommended fire starters from Melt

    I bought these back in January on a whimj ust to try out. I LOVE them. I now use them over the Weber cubes which had been my favorites. If you use 1 you have 160 starters for <$15 (on sale currently). I use 2 just because, and well, that's still 80 uses. Heckuva deal.

    They remind me of small, stale, soft graham crackers. They are of course compressed cardboard-like sawdust with a little paraffin wax. They break/rip easy and there's usually a rough break so the edges light easy, even with one of those electric lighters.

    They burn about 7 or 8 minutes, maybe longer. Close to a Weber cube's burn length, but when they're gone they're gone- there's no burnt husk left like with a cube.

    From the Melt Candle Company, the makers of Tumbleweeds. Give 'em a go, I bet you'll like 'em too.
