Harbor freight. I Spent the extra money for the auto start. I used the 20% off coupon and it was still under $30. I love it.

I have the HF one with the ignition for at least three years and it still works just fine.

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

Mount the tank on a hand truck, all you need is a bungee chord and a small piece of OSB, roll it out roll it back.
Those little bottles are 4 time more expensive than a 20 cylinder.

In some other thread I read that the hoses break a lot with the HF ones, but ya- for 14 bucks, its not that big of a deal.

I would look at if the burner you buy would put out too much btus for the small tank though. I recently hooked up my HF burner to a 1# tank, the use of it chilled the tank and lost pressure. I stupidly hit the turbo lever and apparently the tank had chilled to the point that the liquid came out and a roughly 3-4' fireball lit. Can't say it was my brightest moment, but enough for me to not use the small tank again.

they are alll going on their 3rd and 4th season.. I've never had one break.. except for the pietzo igniter on the first one.. i stopped buying the ones with the igniter and I keep a lighter tied to the tank on all of them.

I got the HF w/ ignitor. The ignitor lasted one season.

Season three, still on first 5 gallon propane tank, hose in good shape too.

I use it to start a chimney like a side burner, put the chimney in the CG SFB, slide out the ash drawer and put the torch under it.... 5 minutes to get it going with no newspaper etc....

I use it to start the fireplace, stack the fire wood with some smaller pieces on the bottom....

I use it to start the UDS, no need to take the charcoal basket out, just open the vents and hit a spot with the torch, best UDS accessory ever.

To be different, I suggest this:



Nothin sez bada$$ like a twin-nozzle!

Seriously though, the HF one works quite well. Bought the non-igniter one a few years back and it's an awesome tool. No more putzing around with firestarters, newspaper, oil + paper towels, etc. Plus its so much fun to use.
