Melting tar out of NSTs with a Weber (grill)-thanks

Original poster: "Robert Hanford" <pomnept@xxxxxxxxxxx>

Thanks for the replies. The butane torch idea is interesting, would propane
work as well or is it too hot or not hot enough?

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
