Default Re: easy/safe to weld exhaust pipe with propane torch?

So Al, my budget is about 20 to 25 bucks. The shop quoted me a price of ten to twenty dollars. the torch I will be getting is propane, not propane/oxy. the pipe has an entire section missing, so that section will need brazed in in two places. is the torch and the brazing rod all I need, or do I need the pipe couplings as well? do i need flux or solder? or can i just heat the pipe with the torch and use the brazing rod to make a joint between the sections of pipe? can I cool the pieces in water?
