There's a difference between the butane meant for heating burners/filling cigarette lighters and the kind of fuel whose flame is meant to come into direct contact with food.

Surfas has it ($2.45 for an 8oz canister) but I was hoping to find something more local (3rd and Fairfax) with longer operating hours, as Surfas is difficult for me to get to before 6pm.

Target does not sell food grade butane. Bed Bath and Beyond (Bev Center) sells butane canisters, but as fuel for lighters and burners-- not food grade butane.

Where else would you recommend going for FOOD GRADE butane? (i.e. not butane meant for cigarette lighters, hotpots, or to keep to keep chafing dishes warm).

Thanks!

Mr Taster
