    @nakedwhiz‌ , wow, I never noticed that, good eye. I will check that to see if it is a crack or a scratch.

    Looked like a scratch to me...


    Just a hack that makes some shitty BBQ...

    Very sorry to hear this but glad all are safe. Terrible thing. My friend lost his house to fire and it really screwed them up for a while. Hope you bounce back fast. Thank god you are all safe,

    Sorry to hear this, glad everyone is safe.

    I wonder if your High Q lump grate caused excessive heat transfer to the wooden shelf below?

    Perhaps someone can explain this better technically ... I'm thinking perhaps the shelf got progressively drier/charred over the year of High Q use until now when it finally got 'ignited'?

    @Flapoolman Pat's table comes to mind:

  • I'll chime in here because this is so chilling and very well could have been me. I guessed that it was the brush that combusted but now i am sure it was very similar to what happened to you. The brush may have been part of the cause just collateral damage. I was very lucky that only the table burned and I had composite decking. If I was on a wood deck, that would have been all she wrote. Glad you are ok. And buy a nest. I'll never have a wood table again.

    I'm good with a nest and side tables.
