  • In the early 90's at a competition for getting the charcoals to the perfect grilling temp at Purdue, one person poured liquid oxygen on the charcoals and it was ready in something like 11 seconds. That video I think was removed from the Internet before the advent of ID-vision. But totally cool! I was hoping you were going to recreate that moment. They also showed doing it over a standard hibatchi grill which was totally destroyed by the intense fire. If you do, wear LOTS of protective gear and pour the oxygen from a bucket on the end of a long pole!

  • 1. Use real charcoal 2. For the chimney and regular method try using olive oil or canola oil instead of lighter fluid so your not adding chemicals to what you are cooking 3. You left the electric starter in about 20 minutes too long the idea behind it is to get it started not to light every single piece of charcoal

  • Hey guys what if you use liquid oxygen infused charcoal. Would that start similar to the last version of the experiment without the melting steel perhaps.

  • you could have dumped that chimney way earlier it takes forever for the top layer to get going it will burn in the grill one chimney full is more than enough for just about any charcoal grill on the market. And if your chimney is on a grate and can get more air under it, it will start a lot faster.
