Important points on how to grill better

10 posts in this topic

Since we have a lot of Newbie asking advice on grilling, I thought I leave this

little tibit about how to grill, get your wife involve, and learn to do things together.

 

Also at the end, It warn about the danger of grilling.

 

 

 

 

 

After the long months of cold and winter, we will soon be coming up to

summer and 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, 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.

 

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.... :D

 

 

WATCH OUt FOR POINT NUMBER 11 - Don't press the issue!!!!!

Hike, Perhaps you could insert these four small additions:

 

7a} The man then turns the burners onto high to leave on for cleaning

 

9a} The man reminds the woman that the burners have by now carboned up the grill, reminds her to be sure to brass brush/water clean the grill

 

11a) Just as the woman has completed all chores, washed and dressed for bed, the man reminds her the grill is now cool enough for her to go out and cover it.

 

12) The man arranges the throw pillows on the couch so that he may possibly get some comfort as he prepares to spend the night there (at the non-negotiable request of his beautiful bride)

 

Disclaimer - By the way, in case my wife reads this, for the record I want it to be known I object totally to this type of bantor directed towards hard working women!

you are absolute right, Cleaning and protecting the grill is important for the next grilling session. The good women needs the exercise, why sleep, when you have the opportunity to take a midnight walk and cover the grill. Doesn't she want it to look shinny for the next outing with good friends. :D

Now I am about to be commited! I just came back and read your reply and subsequently burst into the biggest belly laugh I've enjoyed in a long, long time! I'm having trouble typing I'm laughing so hard! My wife is in the background muttering something about a bunch of insane lunatics as she reaches for the Yellow Pages, asking me what heading the "straight jacket" crew would be under. Thanks for the humor, you've made my day! Mike

I ready this to my wife last night nearly crying I was laughing so hard.

 

For some reason she thinks she can relate?? Hmm.... I do most of the cooking in our house....shouldn't she clean up?

 

Oh well, we'll keep this between us. At least men get it!

Hello, I am a newbie here, I happen to read that post and after that I showed it to my wife. She said that if I made her clean the grill in midnight, I will probably sleep on the sofa :D

 

Women are strange creatures :D
