I remember back in the 50s working on the family farm with my father. He ran over a rabbit with his tractor and decided then and there to skin it and spit roast it over a small fire. For lunch that day we had roast rabbit and billy tea. Magical memory!

Best BBQ I can recall was 10 years ago for my eldest sons 12th birthday (he's just turned 22!).

 

I built a wee fire pit and we wrapped up chocolate-stuff bananas in tin foil then toasted them (and marshmallows of course) over the open fire.

 

Everyone had a blast (and I had a pre-primed hose nearby for any accident burns - gotta think of the health and safety!).

Outside it would not be a floor, ground or something more descriptive.

What a great read through of funny stories!

My BBQ story was last Christmas- we had a family gathering st my brother-in-laws house.
He spent all morning putting a marinade on performing all sorts of different techniques for this large fish (unsure the type) he had bought.

We were all impressed and looking forward to eating it- it was wrapped in tin foil and was on the BBQ. We were inside giving the children their small gifts and we noticed the BBQ smoking. My BIL and other family members walked outside casually. He lifted the BBQ lid and let the oxgyen in.
You can imagine what happened next. The fish ignited and he dropped the lid. The juices and fat (??) then caught alight and the whole bbq went up in flames. While the top was burning he turned off the gas bottle hoping his shiny BBQ would calm down. No. The side of the wall of the house decided to light all.
While we were laughing in amazement my sister grabbed the fire extinguisher and BIL managed to douse the flames.

Sadly the fish could not be saved.

The wall retained its burn marks and my BIL threw out the BBQ!!

BBQ in the Winter months is more about batch cooking.  Love the taste of BBQ sausages so I BBQ them in batches often 50-60 sausages of different flavours and then freeze them.  When I feel like a sausage sarnie, just defrost as many as needed and cook in the microwave.  Perfect...

My best bbq was where all i had to do was turn up, eat the food, drink the beer and roll on.

 

 

 

As I was walking past a random batch on new years eve two years ago I made the decision to stop off and say hello, everyone was really nice, offered me a beer and a chair to spin some yarns.  After about 3 hours I thanked them for the hospitality and moved on. It was great to be able to walk into some randoms bbq, have a yarn, eat some food and have a great time. I know offer any random to come into my bbq, have a beer, have some food and spin some yarns whenever they want. Its the kiwi way.

One of the most interesting BBQs was during a work trip to Samoa and BBQ at Robert Louis Stevenson Museum.

 

I don't know how people eat Taro

One of the best BBQs I had was when I lived in Dubai. We'd snuck across the city to a dodgy duty free liquor store stocked up on freezing cold Carlsbergs and then got some massive scampi, and crayfish from the Deira fish market.

 

Fired up Smoky Joe( the Weber BBQ) on the top of the staff accommodation block....icy cold beverages and seafood....ssoooo gooood!!!!

Over the last few years I've really got into low'n'slow BBQ. Last weekend I did a huge hunk of pork shoulder for a family dinner. It came out superb!

Best BBQ was probably my first Christmas Day one after I moved here from the other side of the planet.

 

From memory, it was raining, but I wasn't going to let a bit of water put me off!

This is both my best and worst BBQ story. Many a year ago during uni in Waikato there was a regularly held and well attended BBQ hosted by close friends at their flat. Plenty of refreshments about and the BBQ was totally buried in sausies, patties, steaks, chicken wings and more.

 

Unfortunately our close friend was not one for BBQ maintenance and had not once in a couple years emptied the fat tray. Further, the BBQ was sitting on the porch which was covered....

 

So when the whole thing went up in flames like it was packed with fire-starters a wave of panic swept the crowd. Turns out you can't put out a massive fat fire with water.

 

It took the fire-fighter about 30 seconds to tame with a fire extinguisher though. Fortunately a few of us had dragged it out from under the porch before the flames hit roof height, so no damage done to the flat building.

 

BBQ was a right off, and the story has given us 10+ years of laughs so far. I'll give him another roasting if this post wins!

 

(unfortunately no one took pics as the phone camera thing was not so common in the day, but it looked something very like this Google supplied image)
