Grill up some buns

Grill up some buns


Evil Mad Scientist Labratories posted a “why didn’t I think of that?” project – a jig for grilling hot dog buns. It’s just a piece of wire mesh folded to make a little bun stand. Make sure to use stainless steel or other food-safe metal.

    Upon finishing my bacon grilling basket of doom fashioned out of similar material, my Grandfather informed me that the galvanized aluminum mesh I was using would galvanize my insides, and thus it went into the trash bin of my youth.

  2. Austringer says:

    Uh, it would have to have been galvanized steel. Aluminum doesn’t need a coating at the zinc won’t exactly stick.

    While zinc poisoning sucks (Ask anybody who has tried welding galvanized steel.) it probably won’t kill you. You’ll just wish you were dead.

    And, of course, I don’t know how pure I trust galvanization metal to really be.

    While we await the commercialization of galvanized aluminum (Apparently US Pat. #6165630), I just want to point out that the slightly confused Dan the Man does bring up a valid point. As any welder will tell you, preforming any action that will lead to the evaporation of zinc is harmful to ones health. They even have a name for it: ‘Zinc Fever’, Dr. Johnny Fever’s decapitating evil not-so-twin brother:

    Nice idea, but I’m confused by those green things on the grill. That just ‘aint right.
