Thank you again everybody! I'm doing well and back to 100%. I was out of work from my day job for 10 or 11 weeks. I unhooked all propane lines to my cooker just in case I ever get the urge to try it again. This was a stupid mistake that I made...I made a bad decision to try an re-light the burner. I know better than that. We ALL do. But I was busy and in a hurry and sleep deprived. I figure that this burn just saved me from an even bigger mistake later on down the road. I could have seriously injured other people too. And that makes me sick to my stomach to even think about.

Glad you have recovered and really appreciate your posting and sharing. Your post was important enough to me that when I bought my new smoker this year, I bouth it without a propane log starter. Tom

I have done that twice the same way the first time was the worst of the two.The second time I blew the door off the hinge.I lucked out and didn't have the grafts but next step would of been.Now I always If the flame goes out I open the fire box door and smoker doors and let it air out for at least five mins.then when I light I use newspaper lit and stand behind the door and with gloved hands I insert it in the box.if it dosen't go whoop,then if the paper is still going I place it next to the burner and slowly turn on the gas to light it.sounds like a hassel but you learn to resect gas and flames.

I'm glad that this has been re-visited, and I',m truly glad that you are fully recovered Kronk.

DWD (and Texas)- your method leaves some holes in the safety net. If you have a flame out with the gas, but embers are left, you still have the potential of a flash-back explosion upon opening the door and letting oxygen in. I'd highly recommend what I did to eliminate any further issues. You have been given two second chances, perhaps you won't get a third?

There is a clear and present danger with ANY gas driven device.

That being said, log lighters and the like are not all bad- using them improperly (and many do, not realizing the potential) is.

WOW thanks for sharing, glad you are recovered 100%, and teaching us to always be careful. It's easy to get complacent with using gas, this is a great reminder not to be!!

Wow Kronk that looks bad, you must be tuff!! Way too close, Glad things are going better for ya !! I am so glad you brought this post up here, I don't want to Hi-Jack your thread but would like to ask you all a question ?? We have a cooker (60"X42") that is set up with propane only, it has a high pressure adjustable regulator, is set up with 3 burners 60" long and each has it's own thermocouple, you control the temp. you want by how many burners you light and with the pressure at the regulator, it is very easy to run, we never have had a burner go out going on our third year, If a burner does go out will these thermocouples do the job in preventing to much raw propane intering the cooker ?? Is there something else I should do to make it better without a complete rebuild ??? Thanks much 101

101, I'm not a pit builder and I certainly have no business giving advice on burners. I hope that the more qualified builders here will see this and be able to help you out.

Thank goodness it wasn't worse than it was. And thank goodness nobody else was badly injured. Would be horrible to have a lawsuit or worse on top of your own recovery.

Good to read that you're doing well with it.
