What lighter fluid do you use?

  1. Just wondering what lighter fluid is the popular choice here. I have been using this kind for a while now

    Just the other day I found this kind on clearance for $10 but haven't tried it yet

    So what do you use?
  2. Yep, I use a cheap chimney too.
    $8 at the dollar store here.

    I have two that look very similar to pic #1, and a new one just like them, still in the wrapper. No lighter fluid here. I like lighter metal, too...HA!

    I use the butane in my lighter to light the propane in my torch which lights the awesome pellets from Todd!
  5. Good system you have going there [​IMG]
  6. i've never seen one at the dollar store around me. i imagine it's a seasonal item but I will check a larger store next spring when I'm around one...
  7. Yeah, seasonal, they were at Dollar General about 3 years ago during grilling season, I haven't noticed them since.
    I'm on my forth chimney, I love how well a chimney works.

  8. Propane Torch!

    1 Chimney, 2 sheets News Paper, 2T Veg oil and a Butane Lighter...FIRE!...JJ
  11. I never saw a weed burner with a small nozzle like that. Does it work good?

  14. Works great for lightin' coals...never tried it on weeds.
  15. I wish Weber made a smaller one because the quality of theirs is very good.
    I usually don't fill my small chimney all the way, so a Weber would be way too big for my use.

    We usually have some left over oil from the latest fry to use.

    My neighbors would fire their pit up and almost immediately I could smell the lighter fluid (and we live in the country).

    That was enough to convince me I had no use for lighter fluid!

    Cool! Glad I picked it up then  [​IMG]
  20. I light everything this way. Much faster than using a chimney or paper, only problem is I get blasted by mesquite meteorites, that stuff loves to pop.
