Not sure I would agree with the flap being in the back, though. could be hard to get some lump into the middle of the basket from the back, since the dome is much lower back there.

I only use it for igniting the lump, but I cant see going back I ran out of LP last weekendm and actually had to use a chimney Didnt like that one bit after being spoiled. I have a 2nd draft door, so after I light with gas, I switch to the standard door to keep the burner semi clean. The burner in the mexi-krapado works for its purpose, but not for cooking. I cant get an efficient flame from it. Always orange fire, and if I turn it up too high, the whole base fills with fire...like a continuous flashback Plus, you have to use the basket with the metal flue around the base with it...since without it, the flame goes out so far its UNDER the firebox, rather than up through the hole in the middle.
It sure would be cool if Dennis could cast in some sort of line for a gas ignition option. A quick release on the outside, and a removable ignition wand that connected to the inside. wouldnt need to be many BTU, just a good steady flame for ignition.
For those of you that have a weed burner...how long do you have to stand out there and shoot the fire to get enogh of a burn going?
