Best ‘fart-in’ fuel?

As you know some disgruntled fans of Bernie Sanders are considering a "fart-in" to protest that their guy didn't win the presidential nod for the Democrats. Protest organizer Cheri Honkala, national coordinator for the Poor People's Economic Human Rights Campaign, has been stocking up on boxes of dry beans and canned beans. But Huckleberries Online questions whether that's the best fuel to conjure stomach gases necessary for a successful "fart-in" at the Democrats' national convention. One commenter suggested that lentils would prompt the best combustion. Your Huckleberry Hound recommends split-pea soup. How about you?

Question: Which starter fuel would best aid those who plan the "fart-in" at the Dems' convention?
