Default Did a STUPID thing. ALWAYS be careful with fire!

I put a hot coal, into the wife's crystal ashtray. I thought it was almost out, but it was still hot. The ashtray EXPLODED, sending bits of shattered glass all around. Fortunately, it was outside, and no one was hurt. I should have known better, I had some water when I was smoking, so I could have doused it.

ALWAYS be careful, and put all coals OUT!

That'll do it. I use a shallow cast iron dish with sand in it to extinguish my coals once I'm done. If I'm smoking outside I set them on the brick sidewalk out back and run the hose on them.

I have a heavy walled brass...thing..not sure what it's supposed to be, my mom used it as a planter when I was a kid. Anyway, that's what I dump the hookah try and any unspent coals into.

I've never had the luxury of crystal ash trays, but now I know what not to do. Thank you for sharing your experience.

I prefer to use the pyrex ash trays myself, they're made out of the same stuff as the glass looking trays you use to make brownies.

When I'm done I push my coals into the tray then take the tray and dump it down the kitchen sink with water and the garbage disposal running.

Default Re: Did a STUPID thing. ALWAYS be careful with fire!

mine get dumped into 3 solo cups. i was going to take a picture but my brother through them all out. at first the cup was decently full with water but the more coals that were thrown in there the more water that was absorbed. so at the end it was just a pile of coal sitting in 3 solo cups, looked nasty.

Go to walmart and buy a $2 camping frying pan. I just set the coals in there, or use it to transport coals. Friend of mine learned a horrible lesson carrying a coal across the room with crappy tongs. RIP Oriental Rug.

I have a couple of pans that I got from the goodwill that are perfect for coals (both during the session when you ash and after). I've been meaning to get a review up.

I have a glass candle holder that I've lined with aluminum foil and ashes from previous sessions that has worked for me, but after seeing this I'm having second thoughts.

Also, I bet the wife was thrilled that her crystal ashtray was destroyed.

I have this big bucket that catches rain water in the back yard so I just dump my coals in that.

Mine either are left in the tray to die or if I don't feel like waiting I put them on some bricks out front and get a cup of water to dowse them.

I'm always worried about something exploding like that. I'm surprised one of my vases hasn't done that yet.
