Korean Twitch sensation Jinny showed everyone at home why using a cardboard box as a barbecue cover is never a good idea.

After preparing a chicken with her father during a May 12 broadcast, the streamer brought the meat outside to put on the barbecue, but was shocked to see her dad use a box as a cover.

The reason Jinny’s dad used the box was due to the traditional cover being too small and unable to fit on top of the bird.

Putting a cardboard box on a barbecue is a bad idea.

Right off the bat, Jinny’s chat tried warning the IRL streamer about how dangerous this could be, with the possibility of the box catching on fire – especially so close to her house.

“Fire incoming!” one viewer wrote. “Jinny, your dad is an actual Pepega,” another half-joked.

Unfortunately, the streamer didn’t heed her chat’s warnings, and mere moments later, the box was engulfed in flames.

“Remove it!” she cried as her father lifted the box from the grill.

With the box completely ablaze and pieces of flaming cardboard flying around, it was fortunate that neither Jinny or her father were burned.

“From now on, I’m not trusting dad,” she laughed as her parent readied to clean up the mess of ash left on the patio.

While her dad raked the ash with a garden tool, Jinny translated some amusing words from her father.

“He said it’s fortunate that mom is not here,” she laughed. “Because if mom was here, we’re all dead. Don’t tell mom!”

Despite the disaster, the chicken seemed to be unharmed by the box mishap, but still in need of some extra cooking.

Eventually, Jinny and her family were able to eat the chicken, but they learned a valuable lesson about barbecuing with cardboard boxes in the process: Don’t.

Streamers who are part of Dream’s SMP Minecraft server such as TommyInnit, Tubbo, Quackity, and more, are topping the list of the fastest growing streamers on Twitch following an SMP finale stream.

The Minecraft community has experienced a giant surge in popularity throughout the past year, with the 2011 game providing a central focus for a huge number of streamers who have seen a boost in their follower count recently.

Largely this resurgence in popularity is due to the huge multi-streamer server named the ‘Dream SMP.’ Dream is a popular Minecraft speedrunner and YouTuber, and while the SMP (survival multiplayer server) started off as a simple fun server, it quickly progressed into remarkably detailed roleplay and lore, which has captivated fans across the world.

The Dream SMP is full of many hugely popular streamers and YouTubers.

The story of the Dream SMP features wars, betrayal, revolutions, and more, and these plotlines are acted out and developed by a huge host of streamers who have all appeared in the server or in content relating to the server.

Dream SMP dominate fastest-growing channels

Following a ‘finale’ stream that saw an end to part of the developing story, many of these Dream SMP streamers are shooting to the top of the ranks on Twitch, dominating the fastest-growing streamers list.

According to SullyGnome, 16-year-old Tommy is the fastest-growing account on the platform, with his average viewers at a whopping 300,000. This follows his finale stream in which he peaked at around 650,000 viewers.

Close behind Tommy, and all within the top ten fastest-growing streamers for the seven days leading up to January 24, are fellow SMP streamers awesamdude, Tubbo, RanbooLive, Quackity, Foolish Gamers, Sapnap, and Philza.

To see this list dominated by one group of people is certainly a testament to the growing popularity of the Dream SMP group. With so many creators on board, the amount of content is practically endless, and clearly a huge amount of work has gone into developing the lore.

Now this finale has passed, fans will be keen to know what’s going to happen next in the world of the Dream SMP, and there’s no doubt that this interest will provide an even bigger boost in numbers for these streamers.
