    Default Important: BBQ Rules for the Summer

    BBQ RULES
    We are about to enter the summer and BBQ season. Therefore it is important to refresh your memory on the etiquette of this sublime outdoor cooking activity, 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, and makes dessert.(3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with the necessary cooking u tensile and sauces, and 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 and cutlery.(6) The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is burning. He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he deals with the situation.

    Important again:
    (7) THE MAN TAKES THE MEAT OFF THE GRILL AND HANDS IT TO THE WOMAN.

    More routine....

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

    And most important of all:
    (10) Everyone PRAISES the MAN and 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....

    At my place, I also go the extra mile and light the fire.

    It's these little steps that makes my BBQ special.

    I am so down with that statement! Another beer usually helps me to deal with her lack of gratitude, though.

    There are things that are worth knowing for their own sake, worth finding for the pure joy of discovery.

    Being a single guy, I usually handle 1,2 and 3 myself. I've found that eliminates any lack of gratitude at the end of the evening.

    Copme to think of it, my ability to identify with the process might explain WHY I'm single.

    Heck as far as I'm concerned if a guy wants to stand in front of a hot grill outside on a 90 degree day, I've got absolutely no problems with that whatsoever.

    A good "man" doesn't burn the meat, beer or no beer...don't burn the meat.

    I just noticed this post was initially made in JUNE of last year by someone in GEORGIA. Are you kidding? BBQ season happens sooner than that in Alaska. Thanks to global warming, Georgia doesn't even have a winter.

    In all seriousness, let the fruitful BBQ season begin.
    Be safe,

    Amen. I can't wait for BBQ season to begin.

    She just tells you that when her friends aren't around to make you feel better about yourself. Interpret as you will.
