I hope no one minds this little rant - it's all in good fun!! And I'm sure for many of us - it's just too TRUE!!

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:

(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 utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man who is lounging beside the grill - beer in hand.
(4) THE MAN PLACES THE MEAT ON THE GRILL.
(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.
(7) THE MAN TAKES THE MEAT OFF THE GRILL AND HANDS IT TO THE WOMAN.
(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.

This is the part that GETS ME:
(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....

Just some words of wisdom...the fastest way to get a man back to his job of grilling...say you'll do it if he doesn't want to. ;)

haha, this is too funny!

I agree except point 3 is hubby's job as I ain't touching no meat for a bbq (and apparently I don't know how to handle bbq meat anyway.... yeah whatever) and point 6 is also not my problem - but my hubby watches the bbq like a hawk. ;).

I always wonder what it is with guys and bbqs? the open fire?

Never quite got my head around why gas bbq's have become so popular - I always assumed it was about the "Fire" that brought out the caveman mentality, hunter gatherer type scenario feeding the family etc Oooooo Fire, Oooooo Meat.

haha, I'm very picky about BBQing, especially after living a majority of my life in the United States. These men here in Germany do not know how to grill with their pathetic electric grills and itty bitty non existant burgers!

So as for our family...My mom and I do most of the grilling :biggrin:
