Re: Portable Charcoal Grill

Charcoal is superior to propane, and I have friends who are very serious about their smokers on the playa. But frankly I would just find a free beater propane grill and then recycle it after the event. The dust, as you know, eats any steel parts that aren't galvanized.

Post comment fails

Twice in about the last two weeks, I have been logged in, composed a reply, then ePlaya errored out with a "you must be logged in to comment." Once I was able to browser back and the text was still there to copy and the other time it was gone.

If you do a search for UK Burning Man Regional, you will find the answer to #1.
That is a much better path to #2 if you don't have real life friends in SF.
