    Sweet. I think you only need to fry the center of the plant. Once its dead, water from the roots can no longer reach the leaves. Dead.

    they sale a big one at harbor freight for about $20. you have to have a gas grill propane tank on a dolly to carry around to use it though...so you will have to buy a big propane tank and a dolly if you don't have one already. the small propane tanks are like $3 each. the big ones are about $30 each i think i forget. i use charcoal to cookout so i don't know. :laugh:

    You don't need to burn the weeds down like in that video. I have the full size weed dragon and plan on picking up the mini.
