I was removing a foil package that held a slab of BB's and apple juice from the smoker when the foil ripped open. I did a dance around the tent, made a hooker and a sailor blush, and got kicked outta my Church all at the same time! This is what I got as a gift. This picture is about 5 hours after it happened. This really made me think about putting together a real first aid kit of some sorts. In the past I only have three or four band aids on board for cuts.

That my friend, looks very painful. Gonna be a while healing too.

By the way, that would not have been a "pretty picture" even if you had not burned yourself:shock:

Serioulsy, take care of that. Burns can get infected easily.

Man thats a nasty B.R.A. Bbq related accident for sure. Needs medical attention as thats considered a second degree burn. Go to the closest emergency room A.S.A.P.
Take it very easy and get well.

That's a nasty one. A first aid kit probably isn't a bad idea, especially when you're messing around with fire (and adult beverages more often than not in my case). I need to put something together for that.

I think the first "first aid" for a burn is supposed to be water or Ice to cool the burn area down. I understand that the sooner you start cooling the area, the less tissue damage.

Maybe some of our medical pros will confirm this? Or correct me?

Ouch!! Aye, get yourself to the doctor ASAP. Infection in a burn is a nasty thing...

My mother just happened to be there. She is a nurse. We put ice on it immediately but it's kinda hard to keep it on there when you're needing to turn in your box of chicken and there isn't anyone with you that can do it besides yourself. I'm keeping it clean and keeping the SSD on it (Silver Suladiazine Cream). This is a prescription cream used to treat burn victims.

Silver Suladiazine Cream

You beat me to the punch.
I suffered 2nd and 3rd degree burns to my hands and torso about 20 years ago (PACDAD = Post Alcohol Consumption Dumb A$$ Disorder). This was the same stuff they treated me with (Silvadine). I do recall that after a few weeks, they told me to stop using it as at some point it begins to retard healing of the burns.

Very painful stuff. I feel for you, and hope you heal soon.

That looks bad, but three inches to the right, and three inches down and it would have been much worse.

A real-life example of the evils of foil :wink:

Oh brother! I'm so sorry that happened! Heal quickly! When I burned my hand really bad, I had to have it debreaded, and then put eucerin on it, I have very little scarring.....

I got this B.R.A. When I tried catching a falling pork roast over a year ago.
I used lots of vitamin E on it. No scarring whatsoever.
Heal well!

Dude, that's a nasty 1-2 degree burn. Keep up with the silvadine. Also pull up your pants, your plumbers crack is showing. :)

Naw Dude, that was his Belly Button.:mrgreen:


Seriously. DAMN! Just....Just.... DAMN!

Keep it clean, dry and keep the SSD on it for awhile. Don't pop the blisters, let them do it on their own.

I guess depending on how you look at it, it could be a really good hicky on my left butt cheek huh?

Hang in there man, that is nooooo fun. The Silvadine is magic stuff though. Glad your mom was there to at least administer some care.

I think we have all done some damage to ourselves in the name of Que.... so we'll hope for your speedy recovery. I tried to take a finger off one year. It's funny you mentioned getting your chicken turned in. I was more worried about that too!!

Silvadine is some good stuff! Sorry for your pain!

Keep that Silvadine handy. I use it whenever I get a burn. A miracle drug if you ask me! Feel better.

When I was younger I had a radiator hose on a hot engine blow on me and burnt about a 4 x 6 area on my upper left chest. I know your pain. Get better soon.

Ouch

Reminds me of when I touched that exhaust thingy on the lawnmower as a kid.

Took half of grandma's aloe plant in the kitchen to stop the pain/crying

Here's to fast healing!

Hope you heal quickly. Guys keep in mind that ice straight from the freezer
is bad for any injury. It is actually below the freezing point and can cause tissue damage. Always wrap in a moist cloth or put it in a ziploc with some water. Ice from a cooler should be fine.

now that it has been a couple of weeks, did you eat the ribs?

River City Smokehouse

The ribs won 4th place. I sent the leftovers home with a friend. The wound has healed tremendously. I may take a pic later this week and post it.

So I have two questions: 1. Where you wearing an apron? 2. Why couldn't your mom turn in the Chicken if she was with you?

Wow that looks bad. I got burned really badly last year on my arms but instead just used 100% Aloe. No scarring but my blisters didn't look that bad either.

Heal soon cause with that kind of a burn it's got be painful to cover it up and think of all the people going blind having to look at that belly.

1. Yes I was wearing an apron
2. My mother is slightly disabled with a botched knee replacement and was sitting down. Also she has no clue what to do besides eat the BBQ.
