Hi from BBQ Heaven, Nottingham

Post  Chapsterjohn on Fri Aug 07, 2009 11:06 am

Yes,

Yet again the English weather tries to dampen down the bbq, but I am one step ahead with my Brinkmann Pitmaster. 7 bbq's in the last 4 weeks, all a wash-out. Only the brave joined me outside.

Last Thursday my beer was filling faster than I could drink it.

The joys of the British summer.

Roll on Saturday, Venison and Buffalo steaks, mmmmmmm

The weather turned from nice to nasty the day I ordered my Frontier.

I've been on holiday in Devon for the past week. The weather's been mostly good, but the Frontier is 200 miles away and brother-in-law insists that he is the world's greatest barbecue chef, so most nights we've been eating burnt sausages and grilled pork cooked on something nasty from B&Q. For some reason, he believes that the way to get the authentic barbecue flavour is to grill it fast over really hot charcoal with plenty of flare-ups. I'm told that his grill might have come with a hood, but he never saw the point in putting it on. Meanwhile, I managed to offend his sense of barbecue propriety by suggesting that burgers go nicely in buns. Lord, in asking for a bun you'd have thought I'd just suggested popping his first born on the grill with an apple in its mouth.

Yep, I know someone who subscribes to that theory of everything must be cooked on full heat quickly - flare ups are good etc.

I cooked once for them at their house and did it low and slow on their grill ... they were popping out every 5 mins to ask why it wasn't ready yet - people were waiting etc.
When it was ready (not rushed and burnt) they did say it was nice which I suppose is a result of sorts, but the next BBQ that they cooked it was back to the old ways. scratch
