The whole point behind owning utility lighters is that they fit into much smaller spaces than a big torch — and they give you a little room to get something lit without igniting yourself in the process. This lighter from Bernzomatic totally fits the bill: you can contort its flexible stem into all sorts of odd shapes to put the (“windproof”) flame exactly where you need it.
A built-in LED light helps if you happen to be, say, grilling at night — or trying to light a cooker from the back side. It’s refillable, too, just like most kitchen torches. And unlike my kitchen torch, the Bernzomatic includes a little window so you can see how much fuel’s left. You know, before you carry it out to the camp site sans refill.
$17 to $20 will buy you the lighter and a couple of refills, and I’d be willing you bet you can find this in most sporting goods stores as well as a few smoke shops.
