Not really, I bought a gallon on Amazon for 15 bucks. I just put it in n old Rutland squeeze bottle. A gallon will last a couple years for me. Crown does work in a pinch..lol But you are correct, the Crown is for self medication. Corn is hard to start compared to pellets. I always start on pellets anyway. Never been a fan of electric ignition anyway. Just another thing to wear out. Squeeze works too if you are desperate. and so does a propane torch.
