    Hi Guys,

    Got some questions regarding blowtorches. 

    1) what can contribute to fuel taste on food?(I noticed my blowtorch rarely has yellow parts in the blueish flame)

    2) what uses come to mind for a blowtorch?

    3) what fuel do you think is best?

    4) should I maintain maximum flame or reduce it to medium?

         I use MAPP gas in my torch for not only soldering pipe, but also starting charcoal and blasting off foods.

      Ask yourself the same set of questions for an oven/broiler that uses natural gas or propane
