While he was preparing the meal for the day, he burned his body hair while trying to light an outdoor pizza oven.

“I wish I could say this is the first time I’ve done this,” he said.

He went on to explain that he has a habit of turning on the oven, lighting it and letting it fill with gas before tossing a burning piece of paper in some time later.

“You’d think I would learn, but yet, I haven’t,” he said, adding that he “tossed it in the oven, and boom — it came right back at me.”

“It’s a good thing I was wearing a hat, or I would be bald tonight,” he continued.

“The smell was very bad. I think the reason burning hair smells so bad is it’s God’s way of telling you, ‘You are on fire right now.’ ”

He said despite the incident, he didn’t give up on cooking: “I had a meal to prepare…I went right back to cooking, I finished every dish.”
