BBQ Dragon

The BBQ Dragon is a powerful cooling fan with a gooseneck. It reduces the time required to ignite charcoal by approximately ten minutes.

You can use it to light your fireplace too. Owning the device lessens the hassle of lighting a fire, and gives you more time to spend with your loved ones.


Lighting charcoal is difficult, time consuming and hazardous. Therefore another fire-lighting alternative is mentioned in this list. The Loof-lighter is a hand-operated lighter, which gives off a jet of superheated air to ignite the coal within minutes. Quicker than the Dragon, the Loof-lighter is best used in the backyard. This is because it doesn't operate on batteries and requires a direct electric supply.
