Serious about grilling? The Airlighter will have charcoal ready in 5 mins without lighter fluid


Winter is gone and that means it’s time to get outdoors and fire up the grill for some burgers and hotdogs. I’m not sure about you, but it always makes me a little queasy when I have to squirt lighter fluid on charcoal. I know most of it burns away once the charcoal comes up to temp, but I still don’t like using it. I also don’t like waiting forEVER for the coals to get hot enough to cool on. Enter the Bison Airlighter. This is not your father’s Bic lighter. This fire starter shoots out a 4 inch high velocity 2,600 degree flame that will have charcoal ready for cooking within 5 minutes – without the need to use lighter fluid! The Bison Airlighter is powered by a rechargeable battery that can be used for 30 minutes, or up to 40 barbecue lightings before it will require recharging via USB. But wait, there’s more (sorry, I couldn’t resist), the lighter also has a built in LED flashlight and a bottle opener.

The Bison Airlighter is priced at $99. You can find more info at
