No need for a heat gun. This puppy puts out that infamous jet sound too.

Been doing it that way since the first day mine arrived.  Only difference is I've got a "fat boy" mapp gas tank on mine still. 

PS - you forgot to post the glowing yellow hot stainless steel around the ignition hole photo.....

I use a similar torch but it is propane instead of MAP, I know, not as hot, but it works good and it also makes the jet sound! :yahoo:

Been using regular propane, may take a little longer and have to light it with a lighter, but works fine.

Flame on!!!!!!!!!

Sometimes I wonder how long the stainless will hold up to the yellow (almost white) hot treatment.  Does a wonderful job of starting even pellets often said to hard to start (whiskey barrel comes to mind).

TS-4000 and Propane, been using it 2 years now. My Jerk upstairs neighbor who HATES that I smoke meat used to run out every time he heard the torch fire up on the balcony. Then I let all the Cigarette smokers in the apartment start using it to light cigarettes...Fun Stuff!

Not just for the MEN...this WOMAN uses it to light my pellets/wood chips and charcoal as well as lighting the propane smoker burner. Also use it to start campfires. Does a great job at caramelizing creme brulee, etc.
