During the winter my mini sits on a wrought iron table right outside my back door. I usually get it ready to fire up before it gets dark, so I only have to light it later. To make a long story short, I could not get the temp above 150 after I lit it. Even with a wind chill of 20 below this seemed odd, so I tossed in a starter cube and when I checked back, the temp was still 150. I finally located a hair dryer, plugged it in, turned it on and aimed it at the bottom vent. Flames were shooting out the top when the needle finally jerked a couple of times and shot up to 600. Apparently it had been frozen.... [p]As Goldie Hawn said in Private Benjamin, "I want to wear my sandals!"
