By the way, what's the advantage of lighting with a torch? I used one all the time to light my old UDS, but I usually just dump about a chimney's worth on top in my little wsm. I use so much lit from the beginning since I usually load it up and use water in the pan.
A chimney takes 20-30 minutes to get the coals hot. With a tourch, I can get the coals ready to go in about 3 minutes!
