I wonder who is so bored the week of Pesach?
Is there a clever way to solicit likes without sounding like a classless wannabee?

Do you know if this is le'chatechila to use? Is there any guidance on this from local rabbonim? Should I just use plastic etc?
In CLE that's what the Vaad said to do.

Can't see why that wouldn't be called burning.
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

I've done this before, though I took off the grates so I could get it really over the flame properly. Was quicker that way too.

Started a list of things not to forget in the wiki, but I honestly don’t know them. Wrote the 2 I noticed in this thread. Please add more as you think of them.

In Lakewood for some reason the poskim said one must flush in toilet and not make any fires.

The fire department expressively permitted using a BBQ grill. I hope the poskim were not misinformed..

Either way, im thinking of using a toaster. Just burn the toast to a crisp. Is this sreifa?
