I am curious as to what kind of oil they use at Japanese hibachi grills such as Benihana where they light it on fire and dip their hands in it and then transfer the burning oil to your hand. I need an oil that will flame easily but won't be so hot I can't touch it. Thanks.
Lets not get confused here for safty sake. If there is a flame then it is hot. Just because you can dunk your hands in alcohol and light them on fire without feeling the heat does not mean that you won't feel the heat after time or if you do it wrong. It is a very dangerous practice and should only be done if you know what you are doing.
