Why I Bought A LooftLighter
Been going back and forth on this for a while now and just thought I would share. I have used an electric started for a year (I have been through 2 already) and they have worked great. They take a little longer than I would like to get everything lit but all in all I have been pleased. With two young boys, it is tough to find the kind of time I need to enjoy cooking on the Egg during the week. I have an XL but am hoping to get a small for father's day. This summer my wife will be home with the boys and has offerred to help out with getting the egg ready to go so when I get home I can start cooking and not have to have the ramp up time of lightening and getting to temp.
So my last electric starter broke this past weekend and I didn't realize it until I had 3 racks of ribs rubbed down and ready to go. Thanks to @stike
for the oil and paper towel method. It worked like a charm. However, I decided that I would replace the electric starter with something a little easier for my wife to use and something a little less prone to my curious 18 month old walking over to and pulling on the extension cord. I thought about MAPP or a weed burner but I thought the heat gun solution would be more appropriate for my wife and young boys. I looked at the harbor freight heat gun and while it looked like the ticket I thought my wife might be a little uneasy about using something that looked like a gun that made fire
. Therefore I was left with the LooftLighter.
I hope I made the right call. Will let you know what she thinks. First use will be tomorrow.
Just wanted to share since it seems to be a topic that comes up every few weeks.
