MMMMM interesting. I do think you make a good point, particularly with a small Weber like cooker.

That was not fun.
Did the same thing a couple years ago, luckily I wasn't right near it. I was inside the house and it sounded like someone shot a 22 right outside my door, scared the F outta me.

I avoid the exploding cement by using a cheap oil catch pan. I got it a few years back for $5, and while it's rusted and warped in places, it keeps me from wrecking the patio

This was my ordeal a couple of years ago when I put my chimney on a flagstone. It exploded, sending coals in about a 6-8' spread, and notice how it warped the chimney.

I place my charcoal starter on the cooking grate of my Smokey Joe. Plenty of air and no overheating. Plus it is very portable.

Funny, I almost did it tonight. I’ve never had it get hot enough to melt sitting on the charcoal grate but tonight I dumped a chimney on one side of my “26 and let it heat up the grill. Long story short, I didn’t start cooking until quite a bit later so I set another half a chimney over the pile of lit coals to start - or at least preheat them. Realized a minute later that the handle was also over those still very hot coals. I’m pretty sure it would have ended poorly had I not changed my approach.

On the melted plastic. I doubt you ruined the kettle. It took a couple high heat burns but mine was fine (and actually more nonstick in terms of ash sticking to the side) after I melted a stick lighter.
