sizz, it's a long handled torch like thing that you attach to a propane tank. kind of like a flamethrower. you can walk around your garden or driveway and torch the weeds instead of having to pull them.

here's a link: http://www.flameengineering.com/Red_...e_Torch_K.html

i've been wanting to get one for the garden. it seems a bit extreme to use it for starting charcoal tho, imo.

i'm another fan of chimney starters. i have a weber chimney that cost me about $15 or so on sale in sears last year. i will never go back to using lighter fluid. while it's not as much fun to play with, and takes a little longer to start the coals as fluid does, it's far superior for grilling because you don't get any residual chemical taste on your food.

the next step in grilling evolution is using lump hardwood charcoal instead of charcoal briquettes in your chimney starter. lump hardwood coals burn a little hotter, and burns out a little faster, but the food really picks up the wood smoke flavor. and that's half the reason for grilling, isn't it?

Ohhhh.....now that looks like fun. But for the safety of all those around me I think I better stick with the chimmney . Actually, I was at Lowes and WalMart yesterday and didn't see any at those stores but will keep looking.

I'd still go with the LOX That way Lump Hardword becomes irrelevant!

Besides, I could build one of those torches myself, better in fact!
(Up the pressure, rebalance the mix, warn the neighbors up and down the block....)

Or, USE A PROPANE GRILL!!!
