simply put, no glamour shots just cooking some refried beans on the back deck during a hot summer day July 2020
i really like this 530 flame thrower.
the 520 is better behaved because of the preheat cup but the 530 calls out to me just the same270DB5DC-84A5-4D8F-86F0-4F885BE47B8B.jpeg  861425D3-C408-4209-A1E2-E6F2A588A492.jpeg

The beans sound good, Buzz; I've never made refried, though, and not sure how.  Probably simple, but all I've even done is cook dried beans.

I too love the light-up.   I just wish the tower of flame didn't die down so quickly.

I've had refried beans from a can and like them, but no idea what's involved in making them.  Care to share your recipe?

i’ve been on the look out for some wild oregano from Mexico. in a real interesting grocery just east a few miles from Destin, Florida selling the native condiments herbs and delicacies i lucked onto a package. i’m not sure what plant this ‘oregano’ is sourced from but it does have an oregano aroma. 
anyway i use this wild oregano in the beans. i rub it in my palm to get the essential oil going and release the flavor.
i make refried beans several different ways,
1; cooked from scratch using dry pinto beans
2; made from canned beans mashed into a paste cooked down 
3; from canned prepared refried beans, especially the brand La Sierra.
my recipe so far has been to lean towards the tastiest beans possible where the bean flavor is the star.
i use as i said a little bit of rubbed wild Mexican oregano and homemade hot vinegar to taste.
the vinegar is spiked with Aji or Birdseye peppers.
food wishes on YT shows the technique for making beans from scratch 

i’m a ‘Jack’ vegetarian so any recipe with beans is tops with me especially black beans. La Sierra brand sells a great black refried bean

i had almost given up on my 530 as i couldn’t get it to stay 🔥 lit, until i figured out it likes about 20-25 pumps.

there are so many stoves and so little time.

Gasman,
once your beans are cooked mash them into a stiff paste.
black or pinto beans have a great flavor add some salt to taste

The preheat cup off a M1950 fits on the 530. But do you really want to tame it down. I put one on mine and promptly took it off.

Thanks for sharing how simple refried beans are to make.  I just made a small pot of pinto's to do this.  Yum.

Now if I can only find someone to share the spice list to make fajitas.  If you make them also, consider this a hint.  🙂

I learned on my 520 that the best thing to do is to start with very low pressure (max 10 pump strokes), open the valve, let the fuel flood a bit (just a bit!), then close the valve, light, let it burn and heat for cca a minute (opening the valve and adding fuel if needed), and only then add more pressure (another 30-40 strokes) and open the valve fully and cook. Works consistently like a charm!

Nothing wrong with using them, Just don't abuse them and they will last and not only do what they were designed to do but provide enjoyment in the process.
