Over memorial day weekend, after having a couple of beers while lighting the lump charcoal around a weber starter cube I realized that I didnt like the small open gap where a piece of lump could be.. The lump was still solid black and I had only lit the cube a couple mins before so I casually reached down to give it a gentle nudge with my middle finger to topple it into place...I instantly knew as my finger tip turned white that it was scorching hot, I'd lost some fingerprints, and that it'd hurt like hell the next day..
Needless to say, I now have a little hand held garden rake for moving lump around now

Mission accomplished...

My first (BRA), BBQ Related Accident, occurred during the DR. BBQ Class that was held on Long Island back around 2006. It was a great competition class and everyone in attendance brought their own cookers so it was completely hands on. During the evening of the event I tripped in the parking lot and broke the bones in my right wrist. After the class I went to the hospital and ended up in a cast for several weeks. After a long recoup my wrist healed up.

My second (BRA) occurred while cooking for OBR after hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc on the East Coast. As Hoboken NJ. is just a few minutes from my home we loaded up the smokers and went to help. To make a long story short, I ended up breaking the bones in my left wrist during this event. This time it was really bad as it came along with major tendon and ligament issues. I was in several different casts from October 31 thru the first week of April. After all this time, the Orthopedic Surgeon said if things don't get better he will need to operate.

Who would have ever guessed BBQ could be dangerous.

I've moved black lump charcoal and burned the hell out my fingers, cut the tip of my thumb off with a meat slicer (who needs the guide?). But probably what probably caused the most pain was when I popped a small ghost pepper that I had smoked into my mouth. Who knew smoking didn't take the heat out? Almost had to go to the emergency room on that one. Hot hiccups are very painful. Milk and saltines worked a little. Then I had to experience the pain the next day if you know what I mean.

Ego; 4th competition. First competition 2nd, 5th, 11th and 17th if I recall, out of 50 some odd teams. Second competition, 2nd, 3rd, and other two in the teens out of field of 35+-. Third competition, 2nd, 3rd, 5th and 5th, and would you believe it still RGC by a tiny fraction of a point. 4th competition, coming home... I've got this. Something went wrong on every single category; not one single thing.... Of the 35 teams we ended up 32nd I think. Brisket was our best at mid-teens and IMHO that was a gift... Humble pie; a heaping helping.

So I was home alone and wanted a burger for lunch, poured in the charcoal and wouldn't ya know it, no lighter fluid,(I didn't know any better back then. So being an enterprising and resourceful individual I got about a 1/2 cup of mower gas and poured it on the charcoal. Now, I wasn't a total idiot back then, I knew the gas would flare. So I stood back about 5 ft and started flipping matches at it. 4th or 5th try WHOOOMP, she caught! and when it did that half hood focused all that fire right at me! I lost most of the hair off the front of my head. my eye brows and all the hair out of the inside of my nose. most of my face and my ears looked like I fell asleep in the sun, Or on the sun, no blistering but some peeling later. When the folks got home I was still soaking my face in a bowl of ice water.
Mom was worried and dad said later he didn't know wether to take me to the dr. laugh or whip my butt.
I ended up ok, no permanent damage. Just a stupid haircut for a while, and Dad never did whup me, but I never used gas again!!
I remember my high school physics teacher showing up for class with this look, seems he did pretty much the same thing. But really, a farking physics teacher?!

I've been pretty lucky, the worst thing that happened to me is when I bought a bottle of Jack Daniel's for a recipe and some sippin'. When I got home and opened the truck door it fell out and hit the garage floor. Yes, I cried.

I forgot about this one. We had friends over one night, and it was time to fire up the grill. I turn on the gas a little, and as soon as I do the wife hollers at me, so I had to run in to grab whatever ... NO, I'M NOT THAT STUPID. I know the gast had time to build up in the lid, so I opened the lid and let the air out. I hit the ingnition button and BOOOOOOOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Apparently, I didn't give it enough time. It didn't do any damage, but I had burnt eyelashes, arm hair,and eye brows.

The wife knows to never holler at me when I go out to fire up the grill from now on haha

From an angle grinder cleaning out the orange liner for my UDS. Took about 3 months to heal, and folks at work thought I'd tried to off myself. But since I work for an airline, that's usually what everyone assumes.....

I've had several pepper incidents; but it wasn't my eyes or nose and it wasn't mere jalapeños. You'd thikn I'd learn my lesson after the first incident. BTW; soaking it a cold glass of milk helps but afterwards, be sue to dispose of milk properly.
