AMNPS self-igniting torch

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

So I ordered package # 3 AMNPS that comes with a ton of pellets and the torch. I was under the impression that self-igniting meant Id be able to start a fire with it right outta the box..

 

Can I just go down to a hardware store and pick up any small propane bottle and put this thing on top for it to work?

 

Im new to propane and propane accessories.

Ok I checked out their website and theyre listed at $2.97 for just the bottle, $24 with the torch thing I already have. That answers my question and I'll be picking up a few like you suggested. Thanks!

The thing that came with my order is not a bottle and is only the torch thing. Snapped a quick pic of it. I think welsh solved my problem, thanks for the quick help fellas.

I hesitate to write this since A-NAZE-N Products is a sponsor, but you can get the exact same mini butane torch at Harbor Freight for $8.99. Harbor Freight routinely puts these torches on sale for $6.99. In fact a sale for $6.99 just ended yesterday and I picked one up.

I had another butane torch before and even at max setting, it did not put out enough flame. But, this little bad boy is night and day difference from my other torch and lit my A-MAZE-N in just a few seconds.

 

Of course the one that the OP ordered provides even more flame/heat.

Thanks for the info. I'll keep that in mind but for $3 I'll give this one a try, see how it does and go from there.

Oh yeah, the torch that you have will be more than capable of starting the A-MAZE-N! I posted this more so for others that may be reading this thread. Either option will work.

 

You may also find other uses for it too. I am tempted to get one like you have too. It could come in handy during camping season when you have moist wood which can result in a stubborn campfire to get started. :)

I have the kitchen (for creme brulee) butane torch as well (not exactly the same, about 90% :-)). I used it a few times , wind would put it out, when it's cold outside the flame was short. The propane HD style torch is the way to go if you use the amazn smokers a lot.

My has a soldering tip, which I think would be a great application for it. And maybe on a low wind day it would work well, but the new torch I got from Harbor Freight worked much better.

 

Like you said, the HD torch would really work well. I still may get one of them too.

I have also read here that some have used hair dryers and heat guns in a pinch too. I would think that would be more of a last resort though. ;)

Thought Id update just in case someone reads this in the future and is unsure what to get. Got the bottle ($2.97 each) Welsh showed me and it fits perfectly. Picked up an extra charcoal grate ($11) too so I can stagger it in the smoker. Thanks guys.
