Uhhh no. 1Lb canister, partially used cooking dinner. Leaking into the atmosphere (read as immediate dispersal), no source of ignition.....so where is the anxiety? How much trouble do we have lighting the grill when there is some wind? And that's trying to ignite it! I would have looked at the thing, cursed it for lost fuel and $$ and as mentioned by someone else put it on the grill, re-ignite and clean it.
