Barbecue season is upon us, and once again, men who never set foot in the kitchen during the winter months have strong opinions about how one should cook the living daylights out of an innocent piece of meat over an open flame. My husband and his pals have long discussions on how to grill a perfect steak, but have no interest in doing same indoors. It must be a primeval thing that harkens back to the Neanderthal quest for fire, where Atouk and Thag would gather around man’s red flower, while Ayla stayed in the cave tending to the little cavelets.
In any case, be you male or female, caveman or modern day fire worshiper, there’s a grill that’s right for you. We went for charcoal a long time ago, and we have a Big Green Egg at the cottage. In my mind, barbecue should be a long term labour of love. Scholes, on the other hand, like to fire up the B.T.U’s in a hurry, so he’s a gasman. You can find out what kind of grill is right for you here. Happy Q’ing.
