    I can't lie: I love the Nancy Cartwright Masterclass commercial before the video. She is too cool. (for the youngsters out there: She IS Bart Simpson).

    Somehow Dan without eyebrows looks so American, I dunno why?? Like if he had a beer and wore a baseball cap it'd be perfect.

    What you are looking vaporized oils and and fuel gas from what ever is being burnt, a plastic sofa and foam or oily chicken.... because it is super heated with out oxygen it’s rapidly burns (‘explodes’) once oxygen is drawn in and reaches the lambda point to reignite 👍

  • Philippe deRepentigny

    In the BBQ scenarios you never mention the reason for the blast (explosion) of fire when in fact fire chief "Ken Bailey" had specifically said it was due to the 'unburned gases' created by the burning contents and the lack of oxygen in a sealed container (Chicken or oil and BBQ cover) When Dan removed the BBQ cover you can clearly see the cloud of 'unburned gases' which explode or "the backdraft effect". Not " medium chicken" or "potentially delicious" ! Come on guys, you can do better than that. Fun video as always !

    There are a lot of people in the comment at different video that will say why they break windows or anything that can give oxygen into the building of the fire this is a reason why they do that so they give the fire oxygen Instead of conceal the fire because that will make it a backdraft if any personnel walk through an unopened door or exposure (oxygen is fuel to fire if you didn’t know) Im not a professional but I’m inspired by what these men and woman do to help others

    I wouldn't be that surprised by the backdraft throwing over the Sticks A small rule to think about the force of this "explosion": It has a pressure of 0.1bar (which means 0.1kg per cm²). So if our window would be let's say 50x50cm (sorry, i'm from Germany and to lazy to convert it in whatever the corresponding unit would be in america), we would have an area of 2500cm², which means the smoke/fire comming out of it would have the equivalent of (0.1kg * 2500 =) 250kg hitting you at ~40km/h...

    Backdrafts were a serious hazard on railway steam engines - they were called "Explosive Blowbacks". Same conditions as a house-fire, fuel rich fire with insufficient air. When the fireman opened the firehole door; whoosh!

    One very similar occurrence going through as a line cook was the fryer, the ignition to start wasn't working properly, so we have a lot of gas seeping through. Then it ignights randomly causing 2 feet of rushed flame shooting out like a boom, then back to normal

    Squirting starter fluid onto a fire can be quite dangerous - the fire can travel back up the stream and get you. Almost 50 years ago my camp counselor poured gasoline (petrol) from a paper cup onto a fire. The fire went all the way up to the cup, and then down the stream that had sloshed onto his pants leg. Fortunately, he knew enough to drop to the ground and roll, so he wasn't hurt.

    My job is about promoting fire safety. We do live demonstrations of oil fires. If you ever get an oil fire, cover it to stifle the oxygen, turn off the heat, then *do nothing else* except for calling the fire brigade. The biggest mistake people make is taking the lid or cover off too soon. Never try moving it. Oh, and never put water on an oil fire. (Incidentally, that might make an interesting slow mo video).
