Greetings all,

I am a recent and proud converter from Weber to the Big Green Egg. I had been the utilizing the Big Green Egg brand electric starter from the very beginning. I just transitioned to the Bernzomatic TS4000, which I purchased from Lowes a couple of hours ago. There is certainly a night and day difference. Can anyone using the Bernzomatic TS4000 tell me how many applications i will achieve before a required MAP refueling is in order?

    Depends on how often you use it. I light my Eggs at least five times per week, and I am still on my first bottle of MAPP after almost a year.

    I light mine 2-3 times a week and my first tank lasted 3 years. At first I was using the torch for about 2-3 minutes per lighting, now I light in about 3-4 places in the lump for about 15 seconds in each spot.
  • That is the torch I use. I usually light the top of the stack, but today I lit the lump thru the bottom vent, and was up to temp a lot sooner. I have a fire grate made out of expanded metal, but I would assume you could light up thru the bottom vent with a normal fire grate fairly easy.
  • Interesting lighting method your using. How long has your Mapp canister lasted?
  • Thank you
