When the weather warms up you’re very, very much welcome to come over for barbecuing funtimes (though bear in mind neither of us has ever barbecued in our lives. I’d actually put a disposable barbecue on tomorrow’s Ocado order just to see what barbecuing is all about…)

Time it right and we might be able to snap off a corn on the cob from the garden and put it straight on the barbecue grill :D

It is absolutely not about disposable BBQs ;)

Yeah I'm just being a snob, but it is true that they really don't get hot enough. Matters less from a safety perspective for veg than for meat, but it makes a difference

I've done plenty of cooking outside with a gas BBQ (which my friends back in the UK tell me is not really proper BBQ at all).... but have no idea about using charcoal or anything like that.

OMG, is is that bad? :D

We’d love to when the days are hotter, if you don’t mind having Darwin accompany? He’s very well behaved, though may come armed with a board game.

It just seemed to be a low-cost, low space way of trying to see if we enjoy it. Russell is not super hyped about barbecued food, though I love it, but I think the last time we had anything barbecued was at the Beexbecue when I was pregnant, so seven years ago, and honestly the meat free offerings are a completely different thing since then, so I thought we’d try this week. Nothing big, it’s just for the three of us now that the boys are finally both testing negative.

My Ma has a gas barbecue, and she apparently offers us a barbecue every time we visit and I always say no as I can’t see the difference between that and grilling it in the kitchen. I don’t remember this conversation ever happening, but she always says that’s what I say. The far more likely truth is that I do t want to put he to the trouble of cleaning it afterwards, though she told me the other day that the racks go in the dishwasher.

That’s fine as long as he lets me play.

Ours is only a gas bbq, but food does taste better & different to the oven.

Nothing wrong with sitting around a disposable bbq getting drunk and then picking at some of the stuff that was salvageable.

Then you’re on. And he’ll very much expect you to play, and also listen to all his facts about space, or whatever subject he’s absorbing at the time.

Did we have disposable barbecues at the lakes? I remember someone (Rachel?) toasting some giant marshmallows once.

I bought the disposable barbecue, just to see if we might enjoy a barbecue in the garden, and it works fine. I’m going to suggest that they are great and @Cras is just perhaps not that good at barbecuing if he struggles with them :P

(But seriously, it seemed to work okay for a few veggie burgers and sausages, but we definitely were not cooking anything fancy or quite so likely to poison us).

The problem with disposables is the small cooking area and limited cooking time. And low heat

Do ‘permanant’ barbecues use a different type of fuel, or is it just the container material/size that makes a non-disposable one cook for longer/hotter? I think things would have burned on the outside of it was hotter than we had it, though. And it was hot far longer than we needed it so we put it out with water, but it was only for a small group, obviously. I can imagine they’re useless if you have more than about 6-8 people.

To be honest they tend to be too hot. Because the grill is so close to the coals it's tricky to cook things through before they burn. A proper grill lets you have the hot coals under only part of the grill, so you can move things further away from the direct heat.

Ah, that makes sense. I did think that the coals were very close to the mesh once it was lit.

Plus with a proper bbq you can have the lid down so it cooks more evenly like an oven, instead of being like a grill where it’s just on one side.

I didn’t even know barbecues had lids for cooking. I’ve seen them (in Animal Crossing, haha) but thought they were to keep the rain off when not in use.

I expect if you are a good bbq cook, and are doing different types of food, there are some situations where you’d want the lid up and others down. For most of what we do, it cooks evenly and well closed.

Barbecues have come a long way since I was a kid.

I recall my dad being a reluctant BBQ-er due to the hassle and underwhelming results.

It's exactly this reason I'm a reluctant BBQ-er as for me barbeques when I was a kid was warm food with a layer of black charcoal.

I'm slightly more converted now as all the food this weekend was delicious and heated perfectly so it was actually tasty.

Looking forward to another go now.

Not forgetting an equivalent volume of ketchup as your parents insist that it's perfectly edible
