OK...I'll admit I'm buzzed while writing this....

But.....note to self --> When using a 160,000 BTU burner use a stick lighter not a match.

My burner came with a "Match" extension (a piece of wire with a loop on the end to hold the match when lit)...I used it when testing it the first time (to see how long it took to heat 5 gal).

Then I realized that the system had an electric starter... and battery (I just had to put the battery in and push the button)...DOH!!!

Sounds like my barbecue. The auto-start was shot, so crank up the gas and start throwing lit matches at it.

Back in the decade of Duran Duran and Devo and Miami vice, when many men in their 20's used mouse in their hair (yeah well I was young then) I pulled "Michael Jackson" trying to light my gas grill with a zippo...

I can still remember the smell...

If I recall correctly you also set your arm and your backyard on fire while dumping a can of gasoline on your bar-b-que grill because the fire "went out." Therefore I am making a reasonable assumption that the match you used to light your propane burner was not a nice wooden kitchen match but a 1/2 inch matchbook from O'Malley's Irish Pub and Tire Change. I can't wait to try your new brew. Ooh...I'm getting a hint of cloves....bannana...and......is that arm hair?

Damn! That would have been great to see.
