Maver,

Don't get me wrong, I wasn't concerned (I have a garden hose 20' away if needed). I'm simply going to tone it down a notch from the flames of hell level that I was at.
My wife on the other hand.....came out, saw the missing eyebrow and singed hair and then looked at the oven (flames rolling out) and actually thought I had accelerated (gas, kerosene) the process and things had gotten out of hand.....something about burning down the neighborhood. I laughed, thinking I was now a battle scared veteran .....she still isn't amused.

You guys are gonna end up on Mythbusters if you're not careful!

You know, that is one of my favorite shows. Not much better that re-enacting my youth in a 'controled' environment and getting paid and famous to do it. Dream job!!! Combine that with Dirty Jobs and you have a carreer

The proper accelerator is liquid oxygen.

For your consideration. It took me a while to find tit since the Purdue web site no longer supports fun and games. Sure glad someone finally reposted the video. Has it been 10 years already?
Improbable Research » Blog Archive » Re-emergence of quick barbeque Grrrrrr! U-tube deleted it.

go to chi-chat for more

RT - The mosaic is very appropriate

I would imagine any type of chemical soaked starter would have residue that transfers to the food, like bbq starter fluid. If you don't have kindling try paper kindling like this.

Tightly roll news paper & tie a knot like a pretzel so it stays together. A dozen of these on top of some crumpled newspaper is nearly as good as regular kindling.

I plan on using a propane charcoal starter,you can get one cheap at Ace Hardware but when the gas bottle runs out as they always do, then the paper sticks are good.

Balty, I did not actually use an accelerator, my wife thought I did after seeing me and the fire. two pieces crumpled newspaper, a butane 'match' fire starter, and a few twigs are all I need.

Thanks Patrick, I thought so too
