Now, I see it is out of stock online and in Walmart stores, guess I got the last one. Cabela's does have it:
http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/t...195&cm_ite=0014136513535a&_requestid=73896Saw Skip using a neat Olympian Piezo igniter at Marty's. It is narrow and fits down the smokebox, or under it. Battery powered and shoots out some good sparks! He got his at Cabela's, my local store did not have one, but found you can order it online from Walmart. Shipping is free if you have it delivered to your local store, plus you can use Paypal! Mine should be in soon.

Sheesh, I don't know. I ordered mine last nite just fine and it said it was in stock for online, but was not in the stores. I get the last one? Sorry I posted this now. Official description is: 'Olympian GM12 Continuous Ignition Multi Sparker Gas Appliance Lighter'. Might show up on a search. I just looked, several places have them, but at a higher price. JC Whitney is one: http://www.jcwhitney.com/Car-Grill-Accessories/600018311.jcw
Cabelas is cheaper: http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/t...470195&cm_ite=0014136513535a&_requestid=73896

I've had one since last July and it works great. But it is a little dangerous. It can easily be used as a stun-gun - and it packs a pretty good STING!!!

I just ordered one from Walmart. Claimed to be in stock. Should have it by the first of next week. Maybe they had just restocked. Price was $11.95 plus shipping and Sales tax.

Was at the local Tru Valu hardware store today & saw a butane, refillable lighter with a 7-1/2" flex shaft that is 3/8" in diameter. Also the flame is adjustable! Price is only $4.99. When I tried it out at home, it worked great & I went back & bought 2 more! Of course my wife saw it & wanted one for herself. When I told her that now she needed her own live steamer to go with the lighter, she said "NOOOO WAY Jose"!!! Can't say I didn't try!
The lighter is a Bernz-O-Matic model #BZLTR200. Jim Spanier

Jerry; unlike all the other lighters, there is a "controlled flame"! It's very small & is like a butane torch's flame, except that it's red instead of blue. Also when lit you can blow on it & the flame won't go out until you let go of the trigger! Jim
