Propane charcoal starter help

I was watching one of 007bondjb's videos and he points out an oval propane burner he uses to start his coals. I have been searching the internet for one like it and I can't find one. Does anyone know where I can find that burner?

Can't make no ghurantees about that coonass Boy be up to with hard to find oval burners..but here in God's Country we use one of them thangs in the linke below. They is really Prickley Pear burners...yankees call em weed burners and snow melters etc. Now my uncle Jim who helped drive the sewercidal japs out of their hideyholes in Okinawa back during the Big War..WWII of course..would call it a Flame Thrower. His did not run on Propane but rather on Eythl gasoline and Ivory Snow Flakes. The snow flakes make the gas turn into a goo which stick to skin mo betta. It also called Napalm.

I could send you the burner, but you need a valve and oriface to go in it and from there to the tank.

Let me know if you'd like a burner.

I'm not sure what burner you are talking about. I know JB uses an old charbroil gas gill the start his coals in a charcoal chimney sometimes. So you have any type of propane burner for shrimp or crawfish boils? If so, just load up a charcoal chimney and put it on that baby and they will light fast. Good luck and Welcome....

Have you tried home depot or Lowes? That looks like a regular gas grill burner modded to a propane tank.. Shoot 007bondjb a PM and see what he says...

Easiest thing is to get a plumbers torch (around $30 at a hardware store). Less cumbersome and super easy to use with a chimney starter. You can also simply torch the charcoal in your fire box. No need to mess with LP tanks.
