The Bardstown Bourbon Society website has a recipe that calls for pouring two ounces of flaming bourbon over a steak.
To me this has a ring to it that reminds me of the so-called "Darwin Awards", which allegedly commemorate those people who remove themselves from the gene pool through their own stupidity. (One example: A guy replaces a fuse under the dash of his car with a live .22 caliber cartridge. When he turns on his headlights, the cartridge fires in a manner that doesn't kill him, but does effectively remove him from the gene pool.)
Is there a safe way to handle flaming bourbon for cooking purposes?
