This past weekend I thought I would put a dent in the â€˜honey doâ€™ list and fix something I have been meaning to fix for years.
The wiggly handle on my BBQ.
Not the loose handle, the wiggly handle.Â
Itâ€™s tight. It wonâ€™t come off,,,,itâ€™s just loose.
As a stock boy at Woolworths I put together tons of these things, Iâ€™m an expert.Â
But for some reason the screws for my handle have never been the right size.
There are these spacers that are in between the handle and BBQ lid that are preventing a tight fit.
So I removed them.Â Problem solved, handle is snug.
Fast forward, Â a friend comes over and brings some incredible steaks and says get it nice an hot to sear them.
So I do. While we were readying the steaks for the Q I heard a bang.
After further investigation I realized the bang we heard was the BBQ handle hitting the deck after it had melted off the lid and fell to the ground.
Seems those spacers were insulated.Â Like the outer titles on the space shuttle.
So much for the â€˜honey doâ€™ list.
At least before I started the handle workedâ€¦.
Now I have to open the lid by squeezing it with oven mitts. Â
Thereâ€™s an accident waiting to happen!
