People who are doing it WRONG

My Dad loves to talk about how he enjoys a good barbecue in this weather, once he even invited a lot of family round for one.

His version of a BBQ is a George Formby grill (natch), and in nice weather he plugs it in outside to cook a burger or sausage on. He is quite evangelical about how clever it is to barbecue that way.

It gives me the gritted teeth rage.

Anyone else who is doing it ALL WRONG? Offload here brew

Very wrong GloGirl! Another bbq related one for me....

Was freezing cold outside a couple of weeks ago (bonnie Scotland). Got home from work, and DH had lit the BBQ. He then proceeded to stand indoors in between checking on the food, then brought the food in and ate it inside. I was so determined he was wrong, I nearly shoved a pizza in the oven for myself! But the burgers did taste good. blush

But pointless exercise imo!

Oh I'm with him. I find the whole bbq thing messy, expensive and stinky.

DS (5) just absolutely will not eat a kit-kat properly, he just bites into them 2 or 3 fingers at a time like any other bar of chocolate instead of eating each finger separately

...I've stopped buying them

A George Formby grill?

Does it lean on lampposts?

I love a barbecue - in fact we go camping every other weekend and our barbecue is one of things we look forward to. However, I find it unacceptable when people use a gas 'barbecue' - that's not a barbecue, that's an oven or grill pan!!! A George Foreman grill is even worse in my opinion!! Barbecued food needs to taste of smoke and of outside!!!!

A gas bbq is not a bbq it's a glorified oven

Am loving the idea of a George Formby grill - does it play the uke as it grills?grin

IKnowRight Tue 30-Jun-15 15:57:08

Milk first!

My partner puts a tea bag, milk and sugar in a mug before adding any hot water. So, I win. Monster angry.

I know so many people who consider a George Forman the same as a bbq, it's not. Neither are gas ones. Some of our friends look incredulous when we get the actual bbq out.

Am loving the idea of a George Formby grill - does it play the uke as it grills? dunno but if it 's good at cleaning windows, I might just get one....

MrsGB - no excuse for that. LTB

Controversial- but those women ( there'll be some here) who put their bras on backward then shimmy it round before hooking their arms in- they are WRONG.

Arms in, boobs in, buckle at back - the right way to put on a bra.smile

This has made me laugh. We have a caravan and use an electric hot plate/grill thing just because its fast and easy and doesnt use our gas.

And all the other caravanners cone over and say "hmmm cooking are we, what is it?....." And they peer over and exclaim "oh. Electric."

I agree it's lame. And cheating. And not proper. blush

YOU are wrong!!!! you have to do it up and then swivel!!!

FraggleHair Tue 30-Jun-15 16:05:05

No YOU are wrong! When my regime is up and running people who do up their bras and then swivel them around will be in big trouble.
