I was burning off my "Name Brand" grill (several years old) yesterday & I turned off the burners with the lid down. It has a thermometer in the fold down cover (to measure the internal ambient temperature) that started to reduce in temperature when I turned off the burners. I was looking straight at the thermometer & the glass covering the thermometer exploded. I thought it was a gunshot. It felt like "shrapnel" hit my head/face/neck & I started bleeding. My wife was here & she fixed me up. I had a shard miss my jugular by about an inch. Fortunately I had my glasses on, otherwise, who knows what would have happened. I have 4 small cuts on my face & neck, the largest one is about a 1/2" long (on my neck). I did NOT go to the hospital as my wife is a senior in a Nursing College.
