I have finally found the highest and best use for a local, widely available free paper source.
First, find a free kindling rack with this logo on it:
Inside you'll find a stack of some tabloids that look something like this:
Grab a handful of those and take them home. Then take one of them, open it up, separate the individual sheets out, crumple each one into the smallest possible wad you can, and fill up the bottom of one of these chimney starters as tightly as you can with the wads:
Turn the chimney starter over, place it on top of your grill's bottom, charcoal grate for best air circulation, and fill the top with charcoal. Set fire to the paper underneath and wait until the charcoal is ignited and burning well. (You may need to tip the starter slightly and slide some more wads under it.) Then dump the burning charcoal into something like this:
Add the cooking grill over the charcoal and place some well-seasoned ribeye steaks on it. I've been having great results with this rub (no wet marinade needed or desired, and the steaks are easier to char on the outside):
You might be reluctant to use the Memphis Flyer for kindling without reading it first; but I've found it makes no difference whatsoever. The Flyer can tell its advertisers your kindling is "circulation," when the only thing it's circulating is a flame under your charcoal. It's a win-win situation. Enjoy!
