Default Propane Chimney Starter

I've read numerous times about Brethren using the side burners of their gassers to light charcoal in a Chimney. I don't have a side burner on my gasser but the neighbor was "disposing" of his gasser & it did. After a little whacking & hacking I was able to cobble this together with some scraps I had laying around. Plus I now have a "portable" side burner... Cheers!!!

That's cool. Now you got me thinkin. I want to do that with a smaller propane bottle so that it truly IS portable. I'll have to look around and see what I can come up with.

Thanks for kicking the creative juices.

Yeah. That's what I was thinking of. But I bet I can make one for less than forty bucks. It's like a UDS versus a WSM.

A single burner propane stove would have been my second choice had I not stumbled upon this freebie. Cheers!!!

Excellent! It is portable and doesn't take up much space. I like it.
