I thought that my Mom was loosing it with this bright idea. She got a clay pot, charcoal, matches and Boom!! we had FIRE!! I didnt think that anything good could come Fire!! You see.....she is an Okie and she misses the ole Wienie roasts that her extended family has, so hence we had a mini- wienie roast. Alls I could see was trouble if....our fire dept found out about this. The kids loved it but those Hot dogs were cooking way tooooo Slow!!
