Spilling hot oil all over the propane flame is dangerous!

That way if there is an overflow, there isn't a resulting huge fire.
I've never had a problem with starting a fire by lowering the bird in very slow and even backing it up if the oil starts to roll but this tip is brilliant, turn off the fire how simple is that, I'm gonna start doing that as well
