Default I think I found a new niche!!

So my buddy and I were smoking in my mom's living room last night.. we had packed starbuzz sweet melon in my havana phunnel bowl.. because the oversized grommet doesn't fit anymore, i had wrapped electrical tape around it.. the bowl didn't go down far enough and 10 minutes into the sesson the entire bowl tipped over sending 4 coconaras to the brand new carpet (installed 1 month ago).. they had seared 3 pretty nice size holes in the floor.. in the heat of the moment i grabbed one of the coals with my fingers and threw it in the tray (i heard my fingers simmering and now i have a dime sized blister on my index finger!!).. we went to home depot and picked up some carpet double sided tape, and went to work.. we just cut boxes around the holes, put the tape down onto the mat under the carpet, and cut out new boxes from some exess carpet i had laying around.. you cant even tell it happened now.. if i get the pictures back from my friend i will post them up here.. it's not as hard as you think to fix some seared carpet!!

McGyver at its best, next time use paper towel as a grommet.

I have grabbed many a coal after they fell, never burned myself by some miracle.

I only smoke on hard flooring now.

you can touch anything if you touch it fast enough, my glass instructor will touch 1200*F glass all the time, just have to go fast enough (the moisture steams off your hand and creates a protective layer, the same reason high temp burns give you a big patch of white dry skin)



and this is case and point why you need to buy a throw rug for under your rig

This method only works on wall to wall carpeting. Sadly a lot of the damage done to carpets is area rugs. It's a great technique to know for when you own a house as it can be applied to burns, stains and tears.
