Fire Safety

Sunday I grilled 10 chicken halves (no pics) and managed to put a hole in my fav soccer shorts while dumping the chimney of lump. =D>



Same day...15 minutes later, I put the chicken on and went into the house to wash my hands. Came back outside and had a nice surprise with the plastic bag melted to the lid. *thumbs up*



I went to Palo Alto last month for a bid delivery and saw this on the side of the road.



Even with all that...I am still wearing flip flops while cooking outside.

You'd better get a pair of asbestos shorts to prevent a fire in your lap!

Who else has a nice big burn scar ...or two... from the kettle lid, or reaching down to adjust the vents on the kettle.

Battle scars.
