Highly Recommended Torch
« on: January 22, 2024, 06:36:03 AM »
Got me a Flame King torch and a few more refillable propane bottles.  This lit my coals last night in about 60 seconds.

I've had a similar one for years but the igniter just went out and isn't serviceable
Seeking a Black Sequoia I know I know, I'd settle for just the tabbed no leg grill

I had a different brand similar model that failed and it never performed like this one.  I really like it.

Sometimes I use the weed burner.  But, it is a little overkill.  lol.
I like my Kettles like my coffee....strong and black.

Yeah, I have a weed burner from Harbor Freight and it works great, just a pain to get it out, get the 20lb tank out and light.  This is much faster.

I use the burner on my performer to light my chimney, basically on every cook.

The GrillGun was $99 when it was first introduced, it's not only a flame thrower used mainly to start a fire in my fire pit, but it is also a great conversation piece if you have guests over.

I've been using this one for a couple of years now. It gets the coals burning much faster than a chimney, is light and portable with the 1lb cylinders, and  keeps the weeds honest.

Similar to others, this SearPro has done me right for about 5 years. I even house it for searing protein cooked under Sous Vide if feeding 1 or 2.

I have several Flame King tanks; very easy to refill. Is this what you bought?

NICE!!  I've been using the handheld for years.  Thanks for the heads up.
