Boy Toy

So...for Father's Day my husband wanted a Looftlighter! ever heard of that?
It's an electric lighter for your outdoor grill, etc... 

So we got him one and yesterday, "Father" got to use it at suppertime. 
Here he is, making the grill ready...
(in the background is his Dad's dozer, that he is in the process of repairing)

and here's the new toy!
just waitin' to be tried out...

stand back, Son! Let's see if this'll really work like they say it does!

charcoaled wood is beginning to smoke...
(In less than a minute!)

getting after it now...


flames coming along nicely...

and the steaks are on!

judging by his smile, the gift is a success!

Here's the scoop from the Looft Industries webpage: The Looftlighter is a Swedish patented invention that lights your charcoal grill or fireplace with super-heated air in 60 seconds without lighter fluid. It can also “fast-forward” your charcoal or briquettes and make it possible to start cooking in just a couple of minutes. We ordered ours from the bbq guys website (

So, YES, the looftlighter does perform as stated! and YES, the steaks were delicious!
