So my friend convinced me to buy a Son Of Hibachi :) I've set it up and want to give it a try in the evening. Of course there are several sources for a "how to" and even videos but I wanted instructions from "in the field" experiences.

So what are the basic steps to light a Son Of Hibatchi and are there any practical tips and tricks?

    @OddDeer I see you never got an answer on these questions. If you have good experience of them, you could self-answer if you want.

From the "quick overview" it looks like the charcoal is started in the closed vertical position, which should get all the coals hot fairly quickly.

And indeed, the process can be seen on YouTube:
