there are people there starting their BBQ pits with matches and shit

one guy is using something that looks like a curling iron and another even employs the use of a fucking oscillating fan

evidently I lead a sheltered life but I just assumed that, at the very least, people who regularly start fires so that they can apply heat and smoke to dead animals have a damned torch!

do you have a torch?

why the hell not?  

need to light a fire?  that's kind of its thing
don't feel like weedwacking the yard?  one swipe of your magic fire wand and weeds die
live somewhere that water turns to a solid outside of a freezer?  melt the fuck out of it
ant bite you?  kill his whole family
have a server full of Hillary type emails?  don't just wipe it with a cloth, burn that bastard to the ground!

anyway, it's fire at the end of a stick and fire is pretty useful shit so I figure you know where i'm going with this

just click this link , give them money and somebody with a box truck will bring you a handy little fire implement to play with

you're welcome

I used to use that method but Japanese lump charcoal is hard as a rock.  I use a cheapo $10 propane torch, works like a champ.

Dam rite bruh, haven't you heard everything in Texas is bigger and we take our BBQing serious down here
I use a charcoal chimney on top of a turkey fryer burner to get the coals going.
My method gets the whole chimney going, just dump into pit & start cooking, saves a ton of time.
Haven't used lighter fluid in at least 15yrs.

I live in a highrise.  No BBQ allowed.  


 



Our building recently had a "cookout," in which a local restaurant brought in a pan of pulled pork for us.

Agreed, it's a heavy bastard but it cooks great and will last a life time.

I think most BBQ lighting contraptions exist because too many people have never read the instructions on the bottle of charcoal lighter fluid. The stuff works if you don't skip the critical step between squirting it and lighting it.

not everybody is lighting super duper quick light kingsfords mesquite infused become a hot dog God briquette charcoal

my mesquite is infused with mesquite and you're not gonna get it started without a metric shitpile of lighter fluid and why would you, when propane does it so much better, so much more cheaply?

also, fire from the end of a stick

I've been wanting to get one for two reasons.  One, to light my charcoal, and two, to sear my sous vide cooked meats.

Y'all are doing it a bit low key compared to us.

We use a cord of wood in a trench when we do our big cookings.

Couple gallons of diesel and a couple road flares.

I prefer the yankee method of lighter fluid. Let it soak for a minute, stand back and shoot roman candles at it. Works every time.

20# cylinder will give you about an hours worth of a 500,000 BTU 2.5' flame from the end of magical fire wand

Your bottle of lighter fluid will give you lots of stinky ass weakling girlyman bitch flames over a pile of failure!

Choose wisely
