Actually, no. I plan on using incendiary spuds, with a napalm coating. The incendiary trigger will be a sodium/magneesium compound that will ignite upon hitting moisture from a body or pile of dirt. It's not a desert weapon

Forget barbecue grill igniters for a firing mechanism and buy a 100,000+ volt stun gun. I got one for $15 at a pawn shop, disassembled it, and attached large insulated copper wires that lead to the contacts in the combustion chamber. Now instead of the tiny 1/2 second spark 1/2 an inch long the the BBQ igniter provided, it throws a 3 inch arc as long as you hold the trigger. That will effectively end any ignition problem you might encounter.
WOW! That's a great idea I had never even thought of! That must give the explosion a bit of an advantage over the BBQ igniters I've seen. Any ideas for a fuel source? Hairspray residue gets everything really sticky and requires constant cleaning.
With a little experimenting I was able to design a Fin-stabilized Discarding Sabot Potato round for it using a gutter spike, but an effective explosive round is problematic. Good luck!

take one 2500 pound air compressor
take one ball valve rated to 5000 psi
