Don't use gunpowder to light fires in your BBQ pit

How much did he use? I have burned gunpowder before and in a pile it just slowly burns.

Apparently too much, and he was holding the open can while he did it...

Had to be in a container. Even in open containers it goes boom.

My buddy lit a beer bottle 1/4 full of gunpowder and the glass shattered a car window from 30 feet away. He was covered in glass shrapnel and bled all over the floor. I can't imagine what a full can of it would do. My guess is he had a container that accidentally went off near him and engulfed him in a fireball. Burned him bad enough that his body couldn't function.

Don't let people play with gunpowder, that shit is dangerous.

EDIT: Yep, holding the open can would cause it to explode if it caught.

Guess I need to do some editing in my BBQ book.
