Anyone familiar with these? I got a pack of them, and the website says the will not impart odor, but I noticed that they contain kerosene. OK to use in the Egg?

Thanks, John

    I have tried quite a few "starter" products. I have settled on a MAPP torch. The torch works best on lump that claims a low spark rate when lighting. I use Royal Oak. Starter products seemed( to me ) to have a very acrid smoke when first lit, so I quit using them.
    More meat please !! :-)
