SORRY Actually THANKS for giving it a try and posting the Q-vue. While it may be a bit slower starting, it works and was what I had on hand at the time. Now I just keep forgeting to pickup a propane bottle, so end up using the heat gun again and again. I need to make another run of Smoked Cheese though, so will try to time how long it takes to get things going. Now onward and upward.........more Salmon to get smoked, etc.
