The Oklahoma Joe’s Charcoal Lighter is an excellent tool for lighting charcoal briquettes, lump charcoal, wood chips, chunks and logs in firepits, charcoal grills, drum smokers and offsets. The lighter has a long neck to reach down into the firebox of a drum smoker or all the way to the back of an offset smoker. It attaches directly to a 1-pound universal propane tank and with a wide nozzle and 20,000 BTUs, will get your fire started very quickly.
Here are some guidelines on how to operate our charcoal lighter, along with some safety tips.
With charcoal briquettes, you may want to aim the flame above the centre of the charcoal pile.
