    What would happen if you used oxygen in the foundry? Would it raise the temperatures to melt high melting point materials?

    @the king of random.. Next time use a heat gun for removing paint.. Its mutch easier and safer because you direct the heat. I would say 5 to 10 min for a large bbq

    Put the charcoal in a bag. Pipe in oxygen and just hold it a minute. Then pour into grill and light. It will absorb the gas and burn like a flare.

    When using the propAne to light the chimney, the flames from the propane were using all the oxygrn that was supposed to be coming thru the turn the top didn't get maximum air circulation to start

    Heads up, you put too much charcoal into that chimney. They also work better with lump and not briquettes.
    My personal favorite is the heat gun most home owners have in their garage. Stack the lump charcoal like you would for lighter fluid, set the heat gun near the bottom and let it rip. It usually only takes a few minutes to get the charcoal started and you can move the thing around. I'm usually ready to cook in 10 minutes. Looking to upgrade a chimney to use the heat gun to maximize efficiency and make it great for smoking.

    If you want charcoal that lights well and stays lit for a long time don’t use Kingsford! Get lump charcoal
