I use acetylene and when it burns by it's self it releases a tremendous amount of black soot. Because of this I always turn the acetylene off first. When I start the torch, I like to have both on for the same reason. I know my torches so well (one set I have had for over 45 years) that I know how far to open each valve to get a good flame.

I have never used a propane/ oxygen torch, so I can't be much help there.
