About The BBQ Dragon

The BBQ Dragon is a fire-starting tool so simple and yet revolutionary that it is literally changing the entire barbecue industry. It reduces the start time of charcoal grills to less than ten minutes and supercharges the starting of all kinds of other fires. It works by blowing large amounts of low-velocity, cool air at the fire. The BBQ Dragon's sophisticated, high-tech design is the perfect compliment to any grill or outdoor kitchen. It's battery-powered, hands-free, micro-USB rechargeable, and looks fantastic. It works on anything: charcoal grills, fire pits, fireplaces, wood stoves, smokers, even campfires. Never before has there been a product that so substantially improves America's most popular past time: barbecue.

Great product! Everyone who has a brick oven or a wood-fired oven should start it with the BBQ Dragon, no question. Painless lighting process.

Sadly, I find it easier to build a computer than a kick off a successful grill fire. The up-and-coming BBQ Dragon could be the breath of fresh air -- literally -- to change my poor fire-starting fortune.

This BBQ Dragon, I’m telling you, it’s going to every tailgate with me. You’re going to want this item – BBQ Dragon.

Start it up and watch as your pile of normally slow-to-be-ready charcoal gets to optimal temperature in as little as 10 minutes.

In competition I want that heat and I want it fast. BBQ Dragon – love it.

Much faster and less cumbersome than those coal chimneys, and better looking too.

Summer is right around the corner and everyone is getting the cobwebs off of the barbecue. TheBBQ Dragon is a grill accessory on Kickstarter that lets you easily start a fire whether you want to turn on the grill or simply start a fire on the beach. If you want to be a grill master this summer, you will need one of these on Kickstarter.

The most annoying part of a charcoal grill is waiting for the coals to heat up. With the BBQ Dragon, your wait time is reduced to a mere ten minutes.

The Gadgeteer

New grilling gadget that starts charcoal faster than a traditional chimney by blowing large amounts of low-velocity air at the fire. Capable of starting a charcoal grill in just 10 minutes — without the need for lighter fluid — it also works great for campfires, fireplaces, wood stoves, and smokers, all while giving you more precise control over the temperature.
