The propane fueled flame thrower is a real show stopper and can start charcoal like no one's business!
There are ordinary charcoal starters and then there's the crowd pleasing Red Dragon flame thrower.
Connect it to a propane tank, hit the spark, and whoosh! Within a few minutes a whole bag of charcoal is glowing and that makes it popular on the competition circuit. And propane, unlike gasoline or lighter fluid, is flavorless and odorless when burnt.
It is also good for burning weeds from the cracks in your patio, and flushing enemy woodchucks. This is the kind of tool Karl Spackler would love.
