Ah nothing like grilling and nearly lighting...

Oneself on fire.

Gas works fine try and use Ingiton, doesn't work, trying again a few minutes later (did shut everything off inbetween), get annoyed, lights grill at top vs the pilot with a shorter candle lighter and...wall of flame. My wife said she heard a noise outside and said it sounded like a sonic boom. By pure dumb luck I didn't burn myself or singe any clothing.

In short I hope my wife enjoys the hot dogs I cooked. Lol

Well I wound up eating one too. lol

No, she actually said at that point just to microwave them. I just got annoyed at not being able to solve the problem or the suggestion to call my parents and ask them.

Re: Ah nothing like grilling and nearly lighting...

Spiders are notorious for getting inside the tubes and making nests. I would go over all the burners and piping. Sometimes there are vent holes just where the piping goes into the bottom. Make sure they are free and open. If possible cover them with a metal mesh screen.

Get a long stick and just hold it over the front burner on the kitchen range, a lot safer.......

That's a good idea, it seems like something might be blocking it since it didnt look like it had any disconnect issues when I checked. There was also some gunk from the last time I cooked and because of a storm didn't have a chance to fully clean up. So I'm also doing a full cleaning.

Spiders are usually better when they are cooked seperately...
