One of our Chama participants attempted to disconnect his stove from a 3-way T-fitting whilst the blaster was roaring the dish water. This was after a night of copious Fireball consumption. A couple of Betty's had to manually steer him into his tent he was so lit. The resultant explosion included a 10' diameter fireball. The 5# tank burned for about 10 minutes with a 6' diameter fire ball. He has a new knick name. Can you guess what it is?

Always wondered how that would go. Tell Fireball thanks for conducting that experiment for all of us.

Thankfully, no one exploded and nothing got burned down. A learning experience for all of us... Pro tip: After several buckets of water, the wet fire blanket and double buckets of water finally put it out.

Thanks for not burning down the run or the campsite... Keep "children" under supervision.

On an unrelated note, I'm trying to replace the hose and regulator for my Woodland Power stove. I haven't received a reply from the company. The regulator is manufactured by Marshall Gas Controls inc. I can read where it says "model" but the number is not clear. I've tried searching but want to be sure I order the correct one. Maybe someone on here who was one can read their model number or is just knowledgeable about these things. I need to get it ordered and send a bill out to "Fireball".
