Default Quickly lighting Natural Coals

Natural coals are clearly the best(coconaras for me persoanlly) but the convenience of a QL is hard to deny. After some experiment i came up with a great way to speed up lighting natural coals. Turn your stove burner on high and place however many coals you desire on top(not the trick) next take a piece of foil ide say about 15 inches worth, shiny side down of course and make an arc of foil. Next use whatever is handy and not heat sensitive to hold down the sides and the back piece. The heat inside multiplies like crazy and with a quick pre heat ive had natural going in 2-4 minutes. Try it out let me know what you think.

Maybe I have to make a switch to HD Foil but when i do foil tents, some bottom piece gets stuck on the coil burner, which makes me very worried that once stuck, it will release bad chemicals to my coals as burning aluminum foil is linked with Alzheimers.

A windcover would work, too. As long as you don't care what it looks like. Sitting on top of an open flame, it's going to look real grungy real fast.

Then aluminum needs to melt at about 1220 degrees. Then it needs to get about 4200 degrees to release vapors or boil. So I think you are fine.

does anyone ever just put them in an aliminum tray in a toaster oven? my stove is one of those ceramic ranges that has no flame or hot coil, just a hot, ceramic top... i want to know if theres an alternative to using the stove to light them without having to purchase a whole new setup for coal lighting (ive only ever used 3Kings QLs)
