Clearly I could not have been more wrong. It appears that a barbecue lighter shaped like a Shotgun, an M-16, a fishing pole, an Arrow, is needed for a truly quality flame, and other flames are somehow lesser.
And then I came upon this:
For Professional Barbecue Chefs only- the Big Dog Lighter- I'm not finding any info on it online, just a bunch of pages where it was sold, but is no longer. Wal-Mart, however, had a big challenging display. This lighter is about the size of a dustbuster, and I just know it will make me a better cook just by having it...
|the display- madness invoking, isn't it?|
