Both good ideas and sounds like fun. I'm going to do this next time I go down to Stalkingbear's. I wonder if I can light his grill with the charcoal briquettes, a strike anywhere match and my .22 pistol. LOL

Yep! We do the same thing, only the bugs are gnats and we shoot the nits.

Nits are tiny parasites that live on a gnats azz, verrrry hard to hit.
