Default Torches?

No not an Olympic post... But in looking at a lot of ya'lls setups... I see a lot of hand held torches on the side tables... Assumed that these were for lighting the coals.... Or maybe cigars... Wasn't sure what was correct???

I'm assuming you are talking about the propane weedburners... great for lighting coals, heating light metals for bending, and cleaning grates.

They can also be used to scare the stuffing out of an unsuspecting friend..hehe.

If we would ever get more rain, I might do that too... last time I tried to burn weeds with it, I almost had to call the VFD since it's so dry.

Small "plumber's helper' propane torch for my home-based smokers.
Bigger weedburner and grill-sized tank for the bigger Lang offset kept in the trailer.
