I cooked a pork butt today on my Egg. I didn't have a lot of charcoal in it to begin with and it cooked a little hot this morning. By late in the afternoon it need some more charcoal. Man...I loaded up the chimney starter up and put the weed burner to it and I had hot coals ready to cook immediately. Man...I wish I'd bought one of these years ago!

Yup. The weed burner is yet another thing I found out about here & wish I'd had years sooner. By far the fastest and most fun way to get a fire going. :thumb:

Playing with Fire is fun! And, it helps get the coals going. But mostly, I like playing with fire.:becky:

Yeah...they are definitely cool. It did make the wifey a little nervous though.

I'm the same way, wish I'd gotten one years ago. Had a hornet buzzing me while lighting the weber last night. Works better than a bug zapper!

The tip of my MAPP gas torch isn't working right, so I had to go back to the chimney on the side burner of my gasser last night. I did stop by harbor Freight yesterday and may have to get a weedburner just because...

You should, you should! High pressure fire is a beautiful thing and it's SO useful.


Oops, forgot my meds. BRB... :becky:

In addition to charcoal starting, weedburners are a great way to clean a pit. Hit it with the burner on turbo - turns everything is it's path to carbon. Then just scrape with a brush!

Yep, +1 on the weedburner. I pile all my grates on one of the webers and blast away to clean them. It's way cool!!!
