    Lee, As a young person I used to love all things flammable.

    Just want to share my favourite fireball machine experience. Consisted of a 4 foot piece of 5 inch pvc pipe. One end had a cap. Shop vac hose was affixed to the end with the cap. The hose was hooked to the output (blow) of the vacuum. Position the PVC pipe vertical using a saw-horse and clamp to keep it steady. Position the vac on a elevated platform so that the vac is higher than the top of the pvc pipe. Do this outside and don’t get the shop vac port mixed up. Ok fill the tube with propane. Should be able to see fumes spill over the top of the pipe when it is full. Ok light the top of the tube and you should only see a small amount of flame. Now while the fire is still going turn the vac on. Should see a mushroom of flame erupt into the air.
