Default A little grease fire.

Well, I am exaggerating when I say "little". Hot enough to melt the aluminum logo off the front. I was grilling, and flame caught the grease in the bottom of the smoke box. (been lazy and didn't clean it) The door was open a crack. when I came outside with the chicken, flame was 3 feet higher than the 'dera and the smokebox was warped so I couldn't shut the door.
My wife flipped out, while I calmly got the garden hose and cooled off the unit from the backside, which put out the flame since it couldn't sustain the heat. Then I got the door shut and damper shut which extinguished the rest of the grease fire.
Chicken was good.

I bet it's clean now! Had a similir incident last weekend when smoke-drying a batch of jalapeno's. I don't use the water pan when I'm smoke-drying. I just use a smaller fire. Well, I guess it didn't start out small enough because the smoke box got so hot it nearly started the lawn chair cushion on fire (located opposite side of the fire box; too lazy to remove from last winter). Smoke box temp gauge was registering around 350 at the time. Had I not been around, it could have been disasterous.

Bandera self-cleaning mod! :D

Grease fires are impressive -- I've scared the crap out of more than one restaurant employee while putting grill marks on prime rib --- whoo haw!! Flames to the vents!!! Good hot broiler and beef fat!

Sad thing is, gonna have to take the FLAMING BEAST to the carwash and pressure wash it out, sos I can use car jacks to unwarp it and repaint it...burnt off my 1000 deg paint job. Also need to replace the baffle that rusted out...if it had been there, I wouldn't have had a fire.
Too bad I don't have the skills to make an avatar with a bandera with flame coming out the smokebox and smoke coming out the fire box. (actually I am to ignorant to figure out how to use any avatars but what are listed on this site)
Gotta have the CHARBROILED dera fixed before this weekend--having another yard party.

You grabbed the hose first?

You should have grabbed the camera so we could have pictures man! How selfish!

To anyone who HASN"T done the baffle mod, I feel this is its most important contribution. I am not aware of anyone having a grease fire with a baffle in place, but PLEASE corrrect me if I'm mistaken!

CK,
do you line your smoke chamber with foil and remove after each burn?

That is what I do, but I always assumed it was only people that didnt foil that had this problem and I didnt need to worry about it.

Just wondering

Nope, I never lined, but never had the problem cuz before I smoke I typically scrape out the insides of the smoker top to bottom. But I got lazy cuz I was grillin' and didn't think about smokebox grease.
