Default Weed burner who has one

I would like to get a weed burner for BBQ and for melting ice...

I know some people swear by harbor freight but what other options are there. I would like one that I can screw the tiny bottle straight into it so I don't have to lug a big tank around

Neighbor swears by these, and made in usa. I actually heard the harbor freight ones were just okay, but for 13.99...

most gas camp stoves have an adapter that may work.. might be thinking backwards.

You can buy a small bottle one if you want, but I find that very few people meet my eyes, much less fark with me, when I am carrying around a big tank hooked to a weed burner equipped with a turbo lever.

Using it to melt ice is a good excuse to get one, but I find salt works better and cost a lot less. I have the harbor freight one and it is sufficient, especially for the money. I think a better question would be who here does not own one?

Thats for the mini dragon that uses a small disposable tank. You can get the green one on amazon for 55 and it hooks up to the 20 lp tank. I'd spend the extra 5.

And pretty sure Amazon is cheaper than the company's website.

I've got the big one from HF, and I love it. It'll certainly start a fire quickly. I got the kind with a push button ignitor. I don't actually burn weeds though, and don't get enough cold weather to need to melt ice.

Not a weed burner but a simple torch.


$23 at my local ACE Hardware.



Striker igniter model.


It's been working great starting lump and wood chunks. Handy.
