    You've all seen the funny TV commercials where guys throw the match in the barbeque grill and get blown up. Well I wish I had a video of my experience yesterday. We were planning to grill stakes on the gas grill yesterday (Sunday). Well the weather took a turn for the worst and it rained all day but I wanted that stake dinner. So I rolled the grill up next to the sliding door got my big golf umbrella and matches. I opened the lid cut the gas on high and as I was getting the match ready to strike I could smell the gas real strong. I figured the umbrella was trapping the gas and allowing it to build up around me, but I wanted those stakes. In one motion I struck the match and tossed it in............................

    BOOM!

    In a nanosecond a huge flash of fire exploded from the grill burners to the top of my umbrella. I could feel the heat and thought I was burned or my hair was on fire. I through the umbrella down and started patting my hair and ponytail but it wasn't burned. The only damage to me was all the hair on my right arm was burned. I'll never light a gas grill under an umbrella again. :eyes

    I coulda told you that, but I'm glad you weren't hurt. I witnessed a BBQ explode from being lit with the lid down many years ago. It blew the lid clean off, and set the awning of the camper on fire. Scary stuff!

    My BBQ experience last night was a damn good one. I grilled up some Pork Tenderloin for the family. Yummy! I BBQ'd some steak last weekend too. :) I *heart* my BBQ. :lol

    Does this mean we can all call you a "flaming" idiot from now on? :D
    Did'nt your mother ever tell you not to play with matches:ugh
    Really man...what were you thinking?? So glad you were'nt more badly hurt in what could have had much more serious consequences....:nerv

    Two questions.....
    What prompted this attempt to gain recognition to the Darwin Awards??

    What was Rose's reaction when arriving on the scene to find Thorn, still smouldering, at the back door?:eek

    Just remember, in years to come, and your buddies are sitting at the bar remembering their friend Thorn who blew himself up lighting his BBQ...........:eyes
    OR...would you rather they remembered you as the legend who died of a heart attack in his sleep after screwing his wife silly and still going out with a bang (pardon the pun):rofl

    I am beginning to think you are immortal.... :lol

    When I was a kid my cousin and I decided we wanted some popcorn. We went out to the corn crib, shelled some field corn, put in in a coffee can, added some gasoline, and tossed in a match. KBOOM!

    The biggest problem was the gas that I'd spilled on my shirt. 55 years later I still have scars on my chest. You got off easy, Thornie. Congratulations! :lol
