burger ala mapp

I was running late tonight and really felt like having a burger.
I was pondering lighting the mini but didn't feel like waiting when
it hit me. MAPP gas. I had never done this before, but I loaded the
mini with lump and hit the torch. I had a fire going in about 30
seconds, and a 650 degree egg in less than 10 minutes. I don't
remember who pioneered this technique here, but I'm a believer now.
I do recommend eye protection, however (lots of sparks).[p]Chuck

    You guys are pikers. MAPP gas is for sissies, Hair dryers? Don't make me laugh. Real men use Oxygen to start their Q. 650 in 6 minutes? How about 2000+ in 3 seconds, that is a real man at work.
