Need help with using chafing dish / methane gel

Postby Sticky Spice » Sat Dec 23, 2006 11:19 pm

I'll be using a chafing dish tomorrow, but don't know how to light the heat source thingy. I figured there'd be a wick, but it's just full of gel.

I figure I must just light the fumes, but I don't want to blow my house up or anything :-o

Just put the flame as close to the gel as you can it'll light...you won't blow up...just don't touch the gel with your finger or lighter itself as it is fuel.

The Gel is flamable..its pretty safe you will be ok

I assume you're using Sterno or something similar. Just remove the top, hold your lighter to the gel and bingo, fire.

ACS is right, that stuff is like napalm, so be careful not to spill it. Also, shake it well before opening the can.

In Memoriam:

Sticky Spice was a good man. A fantasy baseball player and he like the men of Olive Garden and TGIFridays died by blowing up when lighting sterno. Good night sweet prince.
