Default compact propane brush burner (wand)?

I know of the brush/ice burner wands that hook up to an LP tank.

Has anyone ever seen a compact version that would attach to a 'coleman' compact propane cannister? Since the usefulness would be pretty limited, I doubt they exist, but anyone seen one anywhere?

This is a propane torch. Dont think it works with the MAPP fuels... but it does put our a decent size flame for the lil tanks.

I believe the blue Bernzomatic propane tanks have the same fitting as the little coleman ones. I used the lil tank off of my camp stove to fire up that lil burner to start a campfire more than once.

the one I bought was an off brand - General camping or some such thing. This is the brand name version. I couldnt find the generically branded one anywhere online. You might just check Walmart with the Bernzomatic stuff. and in thier camping section.

Let's say you have a small offset. Let's also say you want to 'pre heat' the smoke chamber with a little direct flame (pushed through the air flow hol from the fire box) while your chimnet lights. Do you suppose this Benzo has enough BTUs to get the job done?

Why can't you use a weed burner? Mine heats up the smoker, cleans the grates, and lights fuel.

The small one works ok. The handle and wand are short -- so you can't just hang it out of the firebox like the big propane torch...for the smaller cookers it would probably work fine. The costs on the small bottles is quite a bit more than the 20# propane refills...

Crap, i composed a long detailed reply but my fat fingers lost it.

Short version, good question.

What I wanted to find, and what andy linked to, IS a weed burner, it is just a smaller one, which may work perfect. I can refill the small bottles, so cost is no issue. Convenience is, and I am hoping a smaller version of the big burner would work for preheating the relativel small Bandera smoke chamber. I know it will suffice for lighting charcoal .....

That's the one I have, too, Ty. It is great. But Harborfreight does sell a smaller one that might be helpful.

Also, New Braunfels makes one that I've found at Home Depot that is perfect for a small offset-- it's made for that.
