Kitchen Torch to light.

Recommended Posts

Will the lump charcoal light with a butane kitchen torch that I use for making cream brûlée?  Is it safe to use in the firebox?  I’m mean without using the fire starters.  Just the torch directly.

For low and slow, I use a Bernzomatic propane torch to light a little charcoal. For hotter cooks, I use a 500,000 btu propane torch from Harbor Freight to light most of the charcoal.

Harbor Freight electric heat gun works great too, since it adds wind to the heat.

 

 

$9 dollars or so with coupon and you can go from a small spot of charcoal to a roaring hot searing bowl full of charcoal! And if it quits working, throw it away and get another one!
