I was wondering what I should do with that stack of partial canisters I have sitting in the garage.  Maybe I'll wait until there's snow on the ground though....

Google "potato cannon" and fiddle with the pipe diameter a bit.  Propane cannisters make excellent projectiles.  Be really sure about the direction you're lobbing the canisters and stay quick on your feet.  paranoid.gif
(I might have, ummm, played with this sort of thing once or twice.  And we only lit one roof on fire....)

Nicely done, Pat!  I might have to steal this idea for the next Solstice GTG.

Ugh...I had a debate about whether it was a noun or adjective...I actually had it right the first time.

heh heh.

I wouldn't be put off at all - its all yours.  FWIW, I've found that white gas in a pint-sized drink cup creates a similar sized flame (though no explosion), a really nice hissing sound and can illumiate several campsites for a duration of no less than 10 seconds.

I think someone should combine two things everyone loves: rockets and bacon.

Wait. What?

Excellent.

The bacon rocket idea might be worth exploring in more detail.  up.gif

Not next to my house, tho.  Way, way, away from the house.  That falls into the really watch the trajectory category.

I remember sleeping on a roof one night when I saw flames shoot straight up into the sky.  It turned out the combat engineers had drained the fuel out of some rockets they disarmed and were throwing it into the burn barrel 20 feet below.  Kind of the same concept....

hmmm, fuel canister projectiles.  Small Woods Harvest has a pumpkin cannon sitting out on it's front lawn just outside leavenworth... I wonder if they lock it up at night.  It has like a 80 lb propane tank for the air canister though.  I wonder what kind of PSI I would need for that.  My compressor only goes to 150

If you really want a good fire try lighting a Magnesium engine block. Make sure you have all day and a some welding goggles if you want to look in the general vicintiy of the flame.

That was pretty sweet. I've never done it with fuel canisters, but we used to do something similar back in high school....

After a day of playing with potato cannons we used to light a small fire, toss the almost-empty aerosol cans in, and then shoot them with a-device-which-shall-not-be-named-on-this-site and watch the flames shoot up about 10 ft. It was actually pretty safe because there was no shrapnel to dodge.

My friend just removed a couple of old, half filled propane tanks from this boat.  Blockbuster or Darwin Award material?

Let's put it this way - I think you'll need something other than Shaggy Boombostic for your musical accompaniment.  I'm thinking something like Gwar...

Yes.
And it'll be awfully fun!  (find something bigger than a tree to shield behind)
