About this deal
Q – If you keep your Su-VGun by your grill, what do you do to light your fireplaces, chimineas, campfires, bonfires, trash burner, camping grill or campfire? Q – With the Su-VGun, when I’m lighting my charcoal, my charcoal glows red but doesn’t turn gray, like I’m used to seeing? The baffling also helps remove “torch tastes,” an off-flavor characteristic of other torches that allow unburned propane fuel to touch the food. Grip
Compared with the Su-V, there are a few notable differences. While I wouldn’t call one objectively better, there are a few matters of preference to consider. The Bottle Stand - Convenient vertical stand that enables you to set your Su-VGun attached to a propane bottle - upright and easily accessible while cooling down after having just been used The Grill Gun is another excellent torch, but it’s really better suited for starting charcoal (or a campfire) than for searing food.
I’m a guy who loves to grill with charcoal and smoke with wood, so sous vide cooking feels like cheating. But all feelings aside, I’ve been truly impressed by how good a steak I can get using a Vacuum sealer, Sous vide, and a flamethrower. The SU-V Gun is an incredibly powerful torch that works well for several uses, but especially for finishing sous vide proteins. It’s excellent for caramelizing food and creating a nice crispy crust.
The Su-V gun is compatible with MAPP and butane, but not other fuel sources like natural gas. Do not try connecting any gas other than propane, MAPP or butane from a compatible container. Size & Weight I like a 1 lb canister because it makes the device easy to lift, maneuver, and store. But there are some advantages to getting a bigger fuel source. The Su-V gun has an 8 ft adapter hose option available that lets you (for example) connect to a 20 lb propane tank.Bernzomatic makes a great torch. The TS4000 and TS8000 are quality products, and I doubt you’ll be disappointed with either.
The TS8000 is usually priced at about half of the Su-V Gun, but the base model doesn’t include any diffuser baffling. You’d need to add a Searzall attachment, which is only compatible with the TS8000, to achieve the same level of flame efficiency for mitigation against torch taste. The other models we like include Grillblazer’s other torch, the Grill Gun. And both of Bernzomatic’s popular models, the TS4000 and TS8000. Grill Gun
I also found this nifty 1-pound propane tank refilling nozzle, so I’m not buying a brand new 1lb tank each time I run out.
