    Only use propane, not Mapp (which hasn't been made in years).

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    But it has a built in bottle opener!!!!  

    Expensive device and fuel refills are expensive.  Lump starts just fine with plain old propane.

    In cooking, often we implement steps for which we have no explanations other than ‘that’s what everybody else does’ or ‘that’s what I have been told.’  Dare to think for yourself.

    with my table and the taller propane tank, you can get it in there but an odd angle for the back, the front no issues,  Now depending on your set up it might not be an issue at all.

    Thanks for the input. Probably stick with my oil and paper towels.

    Someone needs to nuke that thing from orbit.  It’s the only way to be sure...

    I recieved one as a present several years ago - the fan stoped working after about a year.  Not worth the price IMO.

    They only shoot a 2 or 3 foot flame. Go buy a $30 weed burner and save yourself $470.
