    After long months of cold & winter, we are finally coming up to summer & BBQ season. Therefore it is important to refresh your memory on the etiquette of this sublime outdoor cooking as it's the only type of cooking a real man will do, probably because there is an element of danger involved.

    When a man volunteers to do the BBQ the following chain of events are put into motion:



    Routine...

    1) The woman buys the food.
    2) The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables, & makes dessert.
    3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with the necessary cooking utensils & sauces, & takes it to the man who is lounging beside the grill - beer in hand.

    Here comes the important part:

    4) THE MAN PLACES THE MEAT ON THE GRILL.

    More routine....

    5) The woman goes inside to organize the plates & cutlery.
    6) The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is burning. He thanks her & asks if she will bring another beer while he deals with the situation.

    Important again:

    7) THE MAN TAKES THE MEAT OFF THE GRILL & HANDS IT TO THE WOMAN.

    More routine.....

    8) The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins, sauces & brings them to the table.
    9) After eating, the woman clears the table & does the dishes.

    And most important of all:

    10) Everyone PRAISES the MAN & THANKS HIM for his cooking efforts.
    11) The man asks the woman how she enjoyed "her night off." And, upon seeing her annoyed reaction, concludes that there's just no pleasing some women....

    Hang on, what's all this vegetables, salad and dessert crap?

    Normal behaviour for this one is a trip to the supermarket/butchers resulting in the emptying of the meat shelves, while someone else goes to the local brewery and picks up a firkin or 2 of their finest.

    Fire up the coals, open the firkin, drink beer, eat meat. Repeat until supplies run out, or everyone has passed out on the floor.
