Very portable, easy-to-use.

I've used it to lite my Amaz N smoker tubes. Very fast.

Some Frustration Involved

I was so looking forward to the arrival of my Bison unit and being able to "quickly" ignite my lump charcoal. I am disappointed in that it does not work near as quickly as I was lead to believe. First of all, when pointing the flame down to the charcoal, the lighter floods and the flame goes out. Very difficult to keep the flame going, and if it happens to be breezy when you are setting up, that makes it more difficult. Its a great concept, a good unit, but the "flame-out" is most frustrating. Also, pointing the unit in a more level fashion it still takes much time to keep the flame going-almost as though it has to heat up to work properly.

Waste of money

It will only light intermittently...and instances are far apart. disengage the safety and the ignition budget simply cannot be depressed. Come back an hour later, and it will light...just once and briefly. The butane port will not accept refills. It gushes everywhere even with Bison branded refill canisters.

When will my item arrive?

Once shipped, items usually arrive within 3-5 business days. While UPS and FedEx are our carriers for smaller items, be aware that larger items and orders are shipped via freight. The freight process is a bit more complicated than what we’ve all come to expect for small parcels, so it’s important that you’re prepared and understand what’s required of you well before delivery day.

  • Most freight products ship on a pallet
  • Some carriers will call to schedule a delivery window, while others will deliver the shipment to a reasonably accessible location closest to your residence (their goal is to deliver as near a garage door as they can).
  • We’ll specify which process you can expect in your shipping confirmation email.

For carriers that schedule delivery appointments:

Carriers that schedule delivery appointments require you to be home for delivery and provide your signature. The delivery is made with a semi-truck with lift gate services, and the shipment is dropped off at the curb. If you authorize the shipping company to leave the delivery without a signature, BBQGuys can’t be held responsible for damages that occur during delivery. As complicated as this process may seem, we’ve only scratched the surface here — please review our detailed guide to freight delivery so there are no surprises when a freight shipment heads your way.

For carriers that deliver without an appointment:

Carriers that deliver without an appointment don’t require you to be home or set up a delivery window, and you aren’t required to sign for the pallet(s). Instead of scheduling an appointment, arranging your schedule to be home for the delivery, and signing to confirm receipt, you can sit back and let your items come to you. If you’re home at the time of the drop-off, you can request the driver place your delivery in the garage; if you’re out of the house, the driver will leave it near the garage or doorstep.
