If it works and keeps the beer cold you can call it anything you want. But when it won't light or doesn't run you can't post what the thing gets called then.

It works best if you light your refer before you light your reefer. Otherwise you get lit and tend to stare at all the flames for a great deal of time while holding the button and the refer never seems to function properly. I've known people to just sit and stare for 10 minutes while holding that friggin button.

There are also those occasions when you may become concerned about whether or not you have pressed it far enough or hard enough, and a few "gentle taps" with a 15 pound sledge seem to be called for.......

I figure that what you're doing with that right-hand button is over-riding the "I'm going to turn off the gas if I don't feel heat" sensor gizmo. Unless that sensor is heated up the gas "should" turn off. Holding the button down makes sure that sensor is warm enough to let the gas flow. I'm surmising this based on the lighting sequence for my home gas furnace.
I just wasted a nickel bag trying that!
