I love lighting my Egg with my new flamethrower!!!
Okay, it's actually called a "Propane Torch." (see link below) [p]But, man, is this thing fun to use to start up my Egg! I've been using the Weber lighter cubes for a long time. With the new Royal Oak being so slow to light, I'd been getting more and more frustrated with how long I had to wait before I could start cooking. My friend with the gas grill was also getting on my nerves...[p]But no more! I remembered the suggestion of somebody here (fishlessman, maybe?) to try this tool from Harbor Freight. I bought it a few months ago on sale, but I didn't own a propane tank. I finally got around to picking one up a week ago, and I've been using it ever since. I had used a gas torch to light lump before, but it was small, so my hand was closer to all those sparks than I really cared for. But with this big torch with its nice long reach, I get a fast start, and I feel a lot safer (than with the small torch.)[p]Anyway, I just had to post my experience here, partly so that I could tell others about it who may be wanting a faster start-up method, and partly to say "thank you" once again to the great people on this forum! I really appreciate all you guys do to help your fellow Eggers ... and what a great group you all are to party with at Eggfests![p]Take care,
