I tend to be more of a "hibachi" user than a full-blown BBQ, which tends to mean I can cook with a lot less charcoal. But no lid. You can pick up a decent one for $25-$30, so it's a nice addition to your backyard cooking lineup if you already have a big BBQ. (Apart from being unable to manage a big BBq party or acres of steak, there is little downside to a hibachi.)
Back in the day, my Dad would start the BBQ with those little waxy white chunks of fire starter (forget the name ... anyone??) and maybe drizzle on some Zip as well if he felt so inclined.

... um, before lighting, of course. I've never noticed any sort of "flavour" from that, although I do wait for the coals to be properly ready before cooking, so no doubt it all burns off well before that.
Be there or be square. Only I can do both!
I've got a cat named Beefeater and a dog named Beefeater, and two goldfish called Beefeater and Beefeater. There's Beefeater my hamster and Beefeater my horse, and my piglet, known as Beefeater of course.
