Get thoroughly educated! You can burn down your house, burn/kill yourself and ruin God-knows what.

Little things like stability of the rig (will it tip?), a wet or partially frozen bird = napalm, oil volume and displacement (to prevent overflow), fire extinguishers, etc.

Alton Brown did an excellent show about them.

Remember, oil is flamable. You spill oil onto your burner, you are talking about a gasoline-like reaction.

Peanut oil is preferred for flavor.
