Heh. ;-) That's why the discussion of surge protectors. Much safer with high load appliances. They turn themselves off instead of bursting into flame or melting.

Our spread-out family this year is figuring out how to fill the xmas wish list for the kid who is accustomed to visiting every winter and receiving a batch of home-made smoked salmon to munch on during his 2-week visit. We're going to send him a new smoker and chips and the recipe and instructions and have his aunt point him at good places to buy fresh or frozen salmon so he can do it himself. He's a motivated learner on this one. (His aunt had a fancy computerized smoker she apparently gave away - we use the low tech aluminum box in it's old cardboard box with an element in the bottom and a pan for the chips.) He's seen me do this often enough it will be easy enough to figure out. Now would his sister use one also? She lives nearby and gets fish from us regularly.

Thinking out loud in this year of COVID.
