:?: Recently, a friend of mine asked " does the paint on the beer can cause any fumes or toxic vapors to get into or on the chicken when it gets hot?" I said I didn't know but would try to find out. Therefore I am hoping that I can get an answer here.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me on this intriguing question. Never really thought about it myself! J.
Don't worry about the paint on the can. If you ever saw the old party trick of boiling water in a business card, you would understand. The container cannot get hotter than the liquid inside it, and 212 degrees F is way, way below the ignition point of the dried paint, actually a silk-screening ink.
(Fold up small sides on a business card, half fill it with water, then hold a match or Bic underneath it, in a few seconds, the water will boil, and the card will not even be scorched.)
