What are the pros and cons of wax starters. I've had my 2 large BGEs since July and have been using wax. I have a mapp torch in the workshop but have not used it on the egg. What am I missing?
i have only used starters a few times and didn't like the initial smoke - of course it burns off but, i prefer an oiled paper towel or weed burner. if you are happy with them, i would use them - lots of folks do.

I use wax starters... I had a pack of BGE starters and in fact, half of a square is enough to light up a Large Egg, so it burns faster and doesn't smell at all... The more debris you have, the faster it goes. The one I got now are small wax crap agglomerates about 1/2 inch cubes.

if they snuff out (say from shutting the lid prematurely), they will smolder for a long time. check the smell of the smoke when you use them. they take a while to clear.
they're fine. but i'm cheap, and paper-napkin with a LITTLE drizzle of oil does it for me. more flame, too.
i also have a weedburner.
