    You have to clear out the dead charcoal from the bbq. It's been standing there since Saturday evening and I still haven't got round to doing it.

    Hmmph.

    I know everyone swears by the old fashioned method of BBQ, but I'm a fan of gas grilling.

    Better get to that task though before the weekend! icon_biggrin.gif

    There is no downside to BBQing.... I love food off the grill. I would walk over hot coals to get food off the grill.

    I just discovered if you Google image search "king of the hill" you get some very disturbing images on the first page if you have "safe search" off. I'll be back i need to go pour bleach in my eyes now.

    I thought the only downside to BBQ was that some recent research found that the black bits are cancer... or something to that effect, that the singed parts undergo some chemical change that can make them more carcinogenic.

    of course, nowadays *everything* seems to give you cancer so one might as well say "fuck it, at least I don't smoke."

    I like cooking outside - gas - and it keeps the house cooler not having to use the ovens so much. Salmon or fillet mignon - both easy to do - even for me - and I'm no cook!

    My Charbroiler propane grille gets lots of use on the patio grilling Salmon, (my Fav)
    Steak, Bul Goki, shrooms or the proverbial Shimp on the barby. icon_smile.gif

    "Clean" out the charcoal? just flip it over and dump it out in the neighbors' yard. Either way, its worth the effort, better than propane/gas

    I was going to recommend putting it in a brown paper bag immediately then place under deck.

    Grilling is OK, I guess, if you're grilling some nice tasty vegetables. But dead animal flesh, not for me, thank you.

    Our grill is connected directly to the house's natural gas line and I love it! I never have to worry about running out of propane half way through cooking a meal. icon_cool.gif
