Is there any other method to light without using a propane torch?

No, electric heat guns simply do not get hot enough.

Auto-ignite propane torches are sold everywhere and are very inexpensive. During startup of the stove that the propane torch should be used to heat up the stove pipe before igniting the pellets in order to initiate a good draft.

Owner's Operation And Installation Manual (page 14) says you can use a 120 volt industrial heat gun, but you will need electricity to operate the heat gun.
