On that note Rossi Smash, I'll share something I thought I'd never make public. In my defense, note I have 2 (yes, TWO) plugs in the boot!
I set the oven (electric) to 200F and planned to leave the shells in there during the day while at work. Before I put them in I had a great idea - the racks will got too hot so I'll wrap the shells in an old towel. I went about getting dressed and when I was getting my coat and boots on is when i realized the element heats to full then shuts down to maintain the 200F temperature - it does not turn on at a low rate!
I saw an orange flicker from the oven - that one lucky last glance around my apartment before I left for a 9 hour workday. A part of the towel had fallen onto the element and of course caught fire. Another 5 minutes and the whole apartment would have been engulfed. In an older building with lots of nice, dry seasoned wood.
No, no video unfortunately and these have now been retired to backup duty. I did get some great looks and comments at Whistler that year! My wiseacre riposte - that's how fast I'm skiing!
Vitamin Ski, You've been warned - but if you do go the blowtorch route PLEASE, PLEASE take video of the ENTIRE process! And keep your fire extinguisher handy - trust me on this one.
