Well, I would think that the flame wouldn't usually get to the painted area of the grill.

Fuzzy are you kidding? I hope you're being sarcastic because otherwise we're all in trouble. The fire is mere inches away from a surface area that is prone to catching fire and you don't see the problem? Well let's all start smoking while we're pumping gas because after all, the cigarette is a few feet from the gas pump right?

It's a safety issue, plain and simple. If a little gust of wind kicks up (remember most people BBQ outside, but I suppose we can do it inside according to your safety rules) and some hot embers blow around, you could ignite your own grill. Although apparently this guy had it happen just by using the instructions provided in the kit.

If this guy is like me, I suspect that he wasn't satisfied with his wife's chimney charcoal lighting, and decided to dump a quart or two of lighterfluid onto the grill.

I once had the handle of my grill spontaneously burst into flame after my webber grill got super hot. It ended up actually melting the lid of the grill, which glowed for quite some time after the fire went out.

Good times... good times...

/must go buy more lighter fluid now

That is why you buy propane fired grills with battery powered electronic ignition. Sorry josh no lighter fluid needed.

I still use lighter fluid with my propane grill. Just pour the lighterfluid over the grilling rack, soaking into the grease. Light grill rack on fire, then turn on gas.

Burn baby burn

/do not try this at home.

// my neighbors love me :D

Burn wounds build character.

Hey, this is what they wanted to open those plyers a while back, set the grill on fire, and watch the platic of the fire burn!

Don't you people get it? It's a disposable grill! You cook food and then it burns iteslf up. Nice feature!


Now that's broken.

Posted by: Bob at March 31, 2005 08:25 PM

I could agree with the disposable grill

Um, why is the picture of the gel conference in the comments section for the grill?

And the comments link appears BELOW the picture of the gel conference which itself is BELOW the grill.

Thisisbroken is broken :0 !!

BOB, the Gel Conference picture is not in the comments. It is a second part to the posting. If you looked, you would have seen the "Posted in:", "Permalink", and "Comments" links _after_ the Gel picture.

I guess it could be a disposabele grill, but the grill should not dispose of itself before the food is EVEN ON THE GRILL

Hey! That's the free grill you get when you buy a Crown Victoria. They make 'em out of Crown Vic gas tanks...

That is what those grills are made out of. i never knew. My grill is made out of high heat resistance plastic, but every once and a while my grill starts belching out big puffs of black smoke and i blank out for a few minutes/hours/days. does it really matter how long i blank out. I just blank out.

Also sometimes I wake up in the hospital with a breathing mask on.

Posted by: unknown(theREALone) at April 3, 2005 10:47 PM

You think that is fun, try setting a computer chip on fire and letting the capsitors explode. its modern fireworks.

This is so broken it's not even funny, lol
