Chemical-free BBQ

Daniel Perlman thought his backyard barbecues could taste a whole lot better - less like fire starter and more like real food.

So Dr. Perlman, a senior scientist at Brandeis University in Waltham, Mass., invented fume-free Hot Head's Fire Starting Gel with an ethanol base. Made from corn, ethanol is non-polluting. The pro-duct won't flare up and extinguishes easily with water.
