Sure, it's fast, but I was wondering if there was some other benefit. My problem with the torch is that I'm bad about catching wood that I bury in the briqs on fire. Lately, for long smokes, I bury about 3 wood chunks in the briqs around the perimeter of the ring, and put three others around the perimeter on top...just barely touching the lit briqs that I pour in a middle depression. It works pretty good and I don't add any wood.

The torch is kind of fun though, isn't it?
