Remove oxygen by closing valve then close fuel. Takes about a second no pop or possible burn back.
That's what I always do, too. If you shut off the oxygen first, you just go back to the turbulent acetylene flame that you started with after you opened up the acetylene valve on the torch.

I figure if it's OK to light it that way, it should be OK to shut it off the same way.
