"I enjoy having breakfast in bed. I like waking up to the smell of bacon- sue me- and since I don''t have a butler, I have to do it myself. So most nights before I go to bed I will lay six strips of bacon out on my George Foreman Grill. Then I go to sleep. When I wake up, I plug in the grill. I go back to sleep again. Then I wake up to the smell of crackling bacon. It is delicious. It''s good for me. It's the perfect way to start the day. Today I got up, I stepped onto the grill and it clamped down on my foot. That''s it. I don't see what's so hard to believe about that"

I'm normally pretty cautious when I have a knife or near the fires. I've caught my arm on the lip of the firebox MANY of times, but other than that, I try to be a little more cautious where I can lose limbs.

2 weeks ago I was splitting some hickory for my Lang. Ax got caught on a knot. I pulled out my 8# sledge to drive the ax through. Hammer slipped off of the back edge of the ax & my finger got smashed between the back of the ax & the sledge handle.

Hurt like a bear, but the Q must go on!

After hitting my Boner with the Steel a few times I was cutting open the Cyro on a packer in the sink and took off the tip or my left index finger thank god for Super glue & duct tape saved a trip to the ER and the cook went on.

On an early morning prepping meat I had a pretty dull knife. Decided to chop with it to get thru some cartilage and ended up hitting the back of my other hand where my index finger is. ER trip and some weeks of physical therapy and it works again. I still started/finished the cook that day just a little behind schedule :)

Cut my finger to the bone washing my knife with a scrub brush while talking to a fellow at a comp.


Only other ER visit from BBQ was when I got a bristle from a grate brush stuck in the back of my throat...
Numerous burns but none that required anything more than liquid anesthesia...

Not exactly BBQ accident but I was carving a ham for Easter with an electric knife my wife had from a previous marriage ( should have known better!!). The handle broke off of the knife and fell to the floor slicing my leg near the ankle about 4 inches long and very deep! Hello ER and cold food. 9 stitches to close. Nice scar though!

Worst for me was probably several years ago on the morning of our big BBQ, was about to prep the cabbage for slaw for the pulled pork sandwiches, went to core one of the cabbages, knife stuck in the core and my finger continued to go down.
Bandaged it, but it was still bleeding, had the Brisket and Pork in the coolers and someone else was attending to the ribs, so a quick trip to urgent care, a stitch and a tetanus shot later, back before the first guests showed up.
Now I buy pre-shredded cabbage.
