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.

    I have been looking for a BBQ lighter the does not F****ing suck for a year or so. I picked up one of these (without the light) And it is great. Nice solid flame and it actually refills. I have bought several other that were “refillable” in name only.

    Nice quality refillable lighter. Easy to use without all the annoying, hand twisting, childproof crap. Bought mine at Walmart. The rest gather dust.

    smoky joe and/or Brau: Where in Wally World do they keep these? I got a blank stare from the teeny-bopper at my local store when I asked about them. Thanks in advance.

    Look around the checkout that has the cigarette case behind it, I’ve usually seen them around there.
