Re: Melting tar out of NSTs with a Weber (grill)

Original poster: ashumate3@xxxxxxx gasoline and oven are not god ideals. Gasoline vapor could ignite and using an oven will allow gassing of vapors from tar that could ignite with in the oven.

Depending on what you are trying to remove the tar from a butane torch is the best bet. Just pass the torch back and forth and let the tar run out. Watch road crews as they use torches to preheat road surfaces.

You have to remember that tar is made with petroleum and confining it in an oven you could get enough out gassing to create explosive atmosphere in the oven.

Using a grill can do like an oven - the tar will out gas and the vapors can be ignited by the grill.

Hope this helps
