Thank you everybody! I have a 60 person job and a 400 person job to cook for this month. Then I'm helping a friend with a 1000 person job in july, raising money for a no-kill animal shelter. I will donate all of my time and travel expenses and cooking fuel for free for that last one. I will get these jobs done, even if I have to pay somebody to stand in for me so that I'm not touching the food. Even if I just barely break even.

But, seriously everybody, be very careful out there. One stupid little mistake can cost you dearly.

Kronk, I hope your healing process is quick and uneventful burns can be nasty critters to deal with so PLease Take care of yourself. I have bookmarked your thread to enlighten members of the dangers of propane and cookers. I appreciate you taking the time to post this and warn members of these dangers through your own ordeal. I look forward to talking with you.
All the best,
kevin

Wow dude you are one lucky man for sure. I hope they gave you some good stuff for the pain. The size of that chamber full of propane could have been a lot worse for sure.

This should be a sticky for anyone that comes to TSR inquiring about propane burners.

Heal well.

Wow. Glad you're going to be alright. Dont' take this the wrong way, but you might have had someone looking over you.... That could have been worse.....Much much much worse.


Hope you have a speedy recovery.

Ditto to the above.

Wow, I missed this one for a few days.Shocked

Thanks for the share.

I hope you are doing better, and I hope that all that think some of us are paranoid about gas assist learn from your experience.

I posted a fool proof (for the most part) gas assist with safety features in the cookers section.

I too get a lot of requests for gas assist help that I generally don't offer any advice on (other than a warning) as an incident like yours is not one I want on my conscience.

I'll be bookmarking this, and adding it to that thread as to a why we caution folks against a simple burner.

I've had flash back experience myself (thank heavens not like yours), and never take anything gas related for granted.

You are one very very lucky man, this could have been a lot worse.

Having burnt my hand I can understand what you are going through but I do not comprehend the pain that must be causing you..

Hope you have a speedy recovery.

the pain meds are probly the best thing that came out of this Laughing i sure like um Rolling Eyes burns really suck,,, i got burnt while i was serving in the navy ( uss carl vinson CVN70 ) when the medics wraped the burn they didnt put any kind of ointmont on it so when they removed the bandage it had grown into the scab Shocked needless to say it was very painfull ,, burns get infected very easily so keep it clean Wink

Kronk, sorry to hear about the accident and hope for a fast recovery. I own a heating & cooling company and built BBQ smokers on the side. I have always been cautious when adding propane to a smoker. I build them using a gas valve and reignite system. It is very similar to what is on a commercial roof top unit. I am going to put together a post on how it is built and the materials used. It does require you to have 110v power for the 24v transformer though which is sometimes a drawback. I myself now use the Charcoal plug in coils more than propane. They sell for $10 at walmart and are fast and safe.

Best of luck to you. I had grease fire a couple weeks ago and had a few burns. Nothing like that. I have removed my log lighter from my unit for that same reason. I use a weed burner now to start my fire and heat my stacks from the outside with it. Hope you have a speedy recovery and this just goes to show that we do love a dangerous hobby and we need to stay on top of what we do.

Welcome aboard (or should I say "All Aboard") choo choo. Razz

I already did, and the system works just fine:

http://www.thesmokering.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=43117

I don't know of any more effective way to get this accomplished- OH and SP both use Wayne set-ups.

A simple 24v operated valve with thermocouple won't work, for reasons I outlined in the original post.
