    Was just bragging to my wife how I "have this down now" burns been going great....a quick wipe down of the glass daily and how the glass has not been gunked up and has been clear for a couple months...

    then this AM I woke up to caked on blackened glass...oh well, someday I will learn to keep my mouth shut...not happened in my 1st 50 years...maybe in my next 50

    Been there, done that. Sorry to hear...

    Now the question is, why was the glass caked black?

    Nope, not at all, just found it ironic that I was bragging to my wife a few days earlier that the glass never gets coated black anymore

    Shut the air down too fast and maybe some wetter than normal wood.
