How *Not* To BBQ

So while my brother was in town we decided to BBQ some steaks. When there are two males trying to do it, this is how it goes...

Add a little bit of charcoal. Start fire. 

Fire isn't big enough, add more coals. Make big fire!

Still not enough, add enough charcoal to make a forest fire!

Accidentally drop some charcoal on the ground and around the bbq.

Pick up lost charcoal and add to fire.

Whoa, I made fire!

Find more dropped charcoal and add to fire.

Oh hell, it's hot. Must be careful.

Man make fire!

My brother thinks my husband didn't add enough coals and the fire isn't big enough. 

Oh hey, you dropped some charcoal. 

I'll just add it to the fire.

Oops here's a few more dropped make fire bigger!

Now men stand around and talk about the fire they made and stare into said fire.

And finally start cooking the damn steaks. 

Looks at us, we're cooking! Yes, yes they deserve a medal for bbqing the steaks. *eye roll*

I even took a little video of my brother and Ken starting the bbq. My brother is the "fire, fire fire" guy. LOL


  1. haha wow that is some fire

  2. Pat- these two goofballs seemed to like making it bigger and bigger. lol

  3. LOL - typical males. Thank goodness we have a gas BBQ. How were the steaks BTW?

  4. This made me laugh my ass off. So, were the steaks good??

  5. Shelley- The steaks were good.

    Keith- It was pretty funny seeing it here too. Yeah, the steaks were good. :)

    Anna- It was pretty funny.

  6. What is it with men and fire?
    My in-laws have a bon-fire once a year and all of the males in the family get super excited about it.

    They have to stand out there for HOURS in the cold (until it goes out)

    How much fun is that? UGH

  7. CaroleDee- I wish I knew. It must be a male thing.
