Out of the Blue

How hot does cast iron get in a charcoal grill? Hot enough to melt through heavy-duty fireplace gloves is what I learned over the weekend, when I used my gloved hand to brace a cast iron smoking box as I moved it out of the fire, and managed to collect a burn in under a second. I stopped cooking my finger quickly enough that it didn't blister, but it is very painful, so as a two-finger-typist, I am at half-capacity for the moment.

Argh. Pet Peeve. Look guys, this is the Internet. The benefit of the Internet is how richly multimedia it can be, when it's needed. Descriptions of videos would be nicely supplemented by examples of the videos..

Yeah, that was my reaction, too....

No pics, please.

Au contraire, I want to see this shit go down.

From that ethanol article:

"Hire retired General Wesley Clark as your point man and lobby the government to increase the amount of ethanol in our fuel to 15%."

That guy sure has his hands in a lot of junk. Retired Army general officer, former commander of NATO, CNN news adviser, now pusher of corn fuel. Quite a résumé.

Good read, that article on Government hypocrisy and incompetence.

I'm actually kind of surprised to see it linked to on Bluesnews.

Not only was I wearing a metal thong, but a full Princess Leia metal bikini top too. It didn't seem to help.

Blue does your wife approve of this?!

I heard somewhere that the gas pumps at gas stations are not UL approved for E85 and that the insurance companies won't insure because of that. I'm not certain where to look for this information though.

Although, after that article, it kind of makes sense that it would be the case.

Also, Ethenol can be very fuel efficient if you change the engines to run just that. Sort of like the high octane fuel of race cars need high compression engines to work properly.

Interesting article to be sure, and quite worrisome if true.

Conventional over -> 450 degrees, max.

Charcoal grill -> can get up to 1000 degrees... (depends a bit on the charcoal, but it gets VERY hot.)

This is why people get things off the grill with metal thongs
