Okay, I relented and got a MAPP torch and tried it out this evening.
Wow, what a difference. I was using BGE firestarters before but this took half the time to get up to temp.
Definitely worth it thus far.
The next step...the weed burner.
If you want fast.Right on.Right on.Let the fire get started.
They're the best, aren't they? I really like how fast they get the lump going--no messing around.
I have used the MAPP Torch for 4 years.
Igintion results from draft air. I frequently accelerate the air flow with a hand held blower.
BGE recently offered a "snap-in" blower to accenerate ignition. They sell it for $100. Most dealers don't know about it.
I bought one & am waiting for the temp to rise above 0 here in metro Kansas City to try it.
I'd be afraid that the sparks would just get to my face/hair/clothes faster if the blower was going underneath. I always start the cookers with the draft door wide open, but I think that I may reassign my heat shrink tubing blower as the official ignition accelerator. The air out of that thing is HOT, and can only help get the cookers going even faster.
How long does a tank of MAPP last? I generally take about 45 seconds to a minute to light the lump well enough for it to sustain. The tank came with the Bernzomatic torch head I bought. I did see some replacement tanks for less than $10. Can't really remember the exact cost, though.
