    Default Kitchen Volcanoes, anyone?

    Kitchen Volcanoes, anyone?

    rfc Replay!

    "Burnin' down the house" event?

    Mine was a tri-tip roast on the indoor grill. It had a slab of fat on one
    side that eventually rained fat on the elements below causing a great
    fire.

    We were facing the other way in the La-Z-Boys maybe ten feet and minutes
    later when smoke began to drift across the kitchen ceiling.

    The flames were easily four feet tall, from the bottom of the grill pit!

    I forked the tri-tip into a cast iron pan and covered the grill with the
    cover, shown below, to smother the remaining grease fire.

    The main floor of the house was engulfed in a probably foot thick layer
    of ceiling smoke but we evaded any fire damage except stink!

    Here's the proof...

    Notice the plume of stained bricks.

    Haven't done any indoor tri-tips since.

    After it was over and house fans exhausted the smoke, we timidly laughed
    a bit, out of thankfulness and our carelessness and pure dumb luck for
    not burnin' down the house!!!

    We said our prayers and gently finished the tri-tip in the oven and
    managed to enjoy it!

    You?

    Not that I wish a similar experience on anyone!!!

    Praise God you didn't burn down the house, or make a worse mess.
    Wow, in 45 years of cooking we haven't had any kitchen fires. I
    consider that very fortunate.
    Is that the indoor grill? is it electric, or fired some other way?
    I'd love to have an indoor grill that was wood or charcoal fired. We
    have a great Kamado Ceramic cooker, so I shouldn't want for another
    grill.
    Lucky you to be able to find tri-tips. We can't find them anywhere
    near Dover, DE. I think maybe 3 times we did. Enjoy your cooking!!

    Nan,

    Fortunate is the right word!!!

    It's indoors in the kitchen. 6,000W electric coils. When it finally gives
    out, there's probably no replacing it.

    Nan, I've found them readily available at Trader Joe's. They come
    cryovac'd, plain or with marinade. The marinade one was way too salty,
    imho.

    Best,

    Andy
