Map torch egg light

    That's a great point you made there. The torch is a little more initial work, but after that 1 min, I close the dome and go inside and it sets itself pretty much.

    With the fire starters, are there every any duds?

    I'm nowhere near a minute with the Map. Maybe on WW or some of the more dense stuff. I'll time it tonight but I'm thinking 20 seconds

    Oh I know man. I'd agree with 20 seconds. I was just saying like hypothetically saying a min for the whole process time cause that other guy was knocking the torch.

    I understand. I'm going to time it tonight anyway for my own info.

    Thanks Mr Cooking Nurse!  I was the one who requested your assistance.  After watching your video and others, I'm thinking a torch is not the best option for me.  I live in a fire-prone area with frequent winds.  Knowing my luck, the sparks and embers flying from the egg while using a torch will set the hills around me on fire.

    Too bad...looks like a great way to start the egg!

    Thanks again for the help!

    Personally, I use the tears of king Ra. I find them to be the superior starting method.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    This is what I use. Light it, shove it in the coals and walk away. You could move it around but I just light front center and let the draft do the work.

    Nice tool what's the rubber tube thingy called?? Propane hose or something?

    I think its just large latex. It was a kit from my local BGE dealer.

    I think it might be the BBQ Guru Golf club:

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    That's it. You'd think I'd remember a name like that. It works great.
