.... I go for flammables. :evil:

My wonderful bride of 15 years doesn't like my propane method of lighting the Egg so I got her some green goo for her anniversary present. 15 is the "green" anniversary right :woohoo: :whistle:

    Do you have a back up gift? B)
    Care in use as it burns very clean and it's hard to see the flame. Great stuff.
    Thank you,

    I was just wondering if anyone could tell me where to buy this stuff? I have went with the propane torch and rubbing alcohol techniques. I was thinking of purchasing a weed burner but I am always interested in trying other products as well.
  • UMM, if I were you, I would run right out to the jewelry store before she gets home!! This is sound advice!
    Happily egging on my original large BGE since 1996... now the owner of 7 eggs. Call me crazy, everyone else does!

    That stuff looks like a :unsure: margarita mix.

    So....You got her the green goo for you to use on your egg on your anniversary as a gift for her? :blink:

    Strange... anniversary card addressed to "Wife". :S You are sooooo romantic.

    Happy anniversary. ;)

    Quick! Put a "Y" on the end of the text on the card envelope. Changing "Wife" to "Wifey" takes it from "Ugh!" to "Awwwww!"

    That green goo kinda looks like bottled Big Green Egg snot.

    Not sure if the place you bought it from is offering a recall, or what, but where I get mine they have a recall on this stuff.

    Furthermore, I don't know if you like using it, but I had quite a bit of trouble getting it to start a fire. It burns out in just a few minutes, and unless you put like 1/8th of the bottle down, I had to use a small fan to stoke the fire each time.

    Since the main ingredient is isopropyl alcohol, it burns very quickly. I was hoping this was something else, because I can get isopropyl alcohol at Walmart for $.70

    Regardless, happy anniversary. :)

    The real gift was a little trip last week for the two of us. She had been pestering me for some of this for a while so I thought it a good idea for one of my prank gifts.

    Every Christmas is a well thought out collection of things she has mention, things I come across that I know she'd love and things like this to make her give me the "look".

    This year one thing she got was fire extinguisher because at our last competition last year she managed to discharge our bbq extinguisher in a storage box ruining the contents of the box.

    Yes Mike I am the hopeless romantic :woohoo:

    I got this at Meijer.

    I normally alternate between "wife" and "Ang" on her cards.... I like to mix it up. :laugh:

    It was a toss up on the card. I almost got one that didn't open and said something about the card like me not doing what it is supposed to. :woohoo:
