Public Service Announcement: clean the drip pan under your grill.  Mine caught fire today and was like a torch through the grill.  I shall be sure to keep a better eye on it from now on.

Upside: I got to try out baking soda in a grease fire.  It was like magic. And despite the fact that the lingering CO2 generation made it impossible to restart the grill, the fire had heated everything so hot that even after wiping off the baking soda with a wet paper towel I was able to grill my burgers just with the residual heat.

And a related shopping tip, when you buy an outdoor grill make sure the drip pan is removable.
