As with all good bbq shenanigans its best to have the event at a mates place in summer with a good backyard and a pool.

 

 

One mate ran out of chicken and decided he was too lazy to cook any more, he drove off up to KFC and got himself a family bucket. To his credit he did share, some of us skinned the regular drumsticks and grilled them quickly with some homemade sauce :)

 

 

At some point later in the night the same bloke got sloshed enough that he thought he could have a float in the pool sitting in said bucket. And so he did, had a grand old time butt-skiing with that bucket till eventually it fell apart from his abuse.

 

 

Mate who owned the place woke up the next morning to find in addition to the usual cans/plastic cups/rubbish on the outdoor table there were pieces of chicken bones at the bottom of his pool. The guy who went skiing with Colonel Sanders drunk-forgot that he'd put his dinner remains in the bucket. Pool owner wasn't impressed and had him go diving to clean up.

 

 

Since then we don't let him anywhere near a pool with KFC :)

My best BBQ was my first Christmas Day in New Zealand. My man (now husband) took me to the beach for a 'proper Kiwi Christmas'. We had BBQ'd double cheese sizzlers & drank beer in the sun. Not like England at all. The sizzlers were gross, like an awful infection (I'm a midwife and have seen a few!). I had bread & butter and beer, nothing BBq'd, but still the best ever. We had Christmas crackers and I still have my string of plastic 'beach pearls' 13 years later. No photos but lovely memories. Yep, I was a cheap dateembarassed

BBQ with friends in the deck in the sun. It was the night we beat France to win the world cup. Fun night with an exciting and great result.

Not my favourite bbq story but unforgettable one.

 

Our friend, instead of buying bbq charcoal, bought a coal thinking it's the same thing.

 

For more than an hour, he's been trying to light it to produce an ember. But all he's getting are huge billows of smoke.

The one thing that I have learned is not to use an electric BBQ inside the house - That is unless you want the kitchen and dining area to fill with smoke.

Best BBQ was 2 xmas' ago.  First BBQ I had ever owned, first time I had ever cooked on it, turns out chicken is kinda hard to cook on a BBQ.  Luckily no one got sick, but we had to nuke the chicken to actually cook it, was taking wayyyy to long... one day Ill learn how to BBQ chicken....

Best barbeque I had was the last one last night. Went to a friend's place and had fish, kebabs and steak, along with a huge range of side dishes, salads, curried eggs, salsa, garlic bread and lots more.. So busy eating didn't get any photos, sorry. Could put a stock photo up but feels like cheating, so nada.

All BBQs are great BBQs! Hard to pick a favourite.  Had a good one at work cooking for all the team.

Lake Taupo. Me, a very young short skinny primary school kid. Dad leaving me on my own for the first time with sole charge for turning the sausages. A kiwi rite of passage.

It’s probably not allowed to post twice in this thread - but I can’t resist this because I think it’s mind-blowing.

Don’t know when your photo was taken - but here’s one I took on 18 January 2007 - same BBQ unit, same cream bulwarks with green capping, same triangular top to the pole supporting the upper deck - i.e. same Antarctic location, same ship, same camera angle, different voyage. Akademik Ioffe - right? Or maybe her sister-ship - there were two of them.

One of my favourite BBQs was at New Year's in Taupo in 2012. We were staying at a holiday home in Acacia Bay with some friends and it was raining so we got out the umbrella so we could still BBQ.

Best BBQ I ever had was when my workmates came over. The all brought different food ranging from different countries, Greece + Mexico come to mind first, and we cooked it on the BBQ. It was simple, fun and the food was great.

The best bbq.. Not necessarily.. The most memorable though was a family bbq on a farm at Kilmore, 45 minutes down the Hume Highway outside of Melbourne. We had been shooting kangaroos (my apologies animal lovers, they and along with the brumbies run through the fencing and cause a lot of damage) and decided one was good for the bbq. We had got to the last piece and dropped it on the bbq.. Myself and my cousin turned our backs on the bbq for a couple of seconds.. The last piece was gone. It had completely disappeared. We both asked each other if we'd taken it off.. Nope.. Asked the rest of the family if they had snuck it off.. Nope.. Checked the farm dogs.. Nope. Checked the other animals.. Nope.. So we were both stumped.. We came to the conclusion... That..

The flies took it..

Summer is here and can't wait to hit the bbq again. Pic is from my last bbq last summer. BTW, kangaroo is just like venison.. Well that's what I think
