If anyone is interested, I used the $10 prize to buy a 0-15 psi gauge to tinker with manometric propane metering. So it went to a good purpose.

Damn I totally forgot about this.

Jammed a scharder valvle and a piezo igniter into a pringles can. It therefore links to my fuel meter (cheating? :P) and ignites pretty reliably.

A wrap of tape holding the lid more securely makes it give a nice bang when it goes. No barrel planned.
