Default Torch good, but....

Been awhile, but this post reached out for me.

I kettle Q with mesquite chunk charcoal. A propane torch is a must. But to actually get it completely ready, you need compressed air. By judiciously applying air to the mesquite, flames develop, and the heat is spread to adjoining chunks. While a dragon may impress, the ensuing "volcano" just may concern your neighbors a bit. You will have the roar and the large shower of sparks like a volcano. And a hot bed to begin grilling, to boot. Done at night, there will be no mistaking what you are up to, provided your neighbors know you are into real BBQ, and not just some nutsy neighbor working his volcano nursery.
Eye and face protection a must. For that matter, covering the body is a good idea, too. And don't forget to water the lawn...buildings...and neighboring stands of trees. Don't try this in the wind unless you are on Mars. Enjoy the "Q" show. Safely.

Cheers!

Would one of those torches burn creosote off of my smoker (or just make it worse)?

(Or set it on fire?)

The start of this thread just made weed burner stocks double!!

Any idea how many lightings you can get off one standard size bottle that fits the harbor freight lighter?

Just break your chimney starter. This torch is only $20 not much more than a starter. Purchase justified.







This thread is hot. Just one day before I bought my weed burner and posted a thread on it. Only got one reply albeit it had a silly tittle. Thought you guys found a more fun way to light coals or something.

I recently moved. I packed my weed burner in a box and labeled it "Weed Burner". One of the movers found the box and was very sad to learn that it was used only on to start my charcoal....

Just picked up the electric start one yesterday on sale for 15.99. I used it for the first time today. How did I go so long without this thing?
