The gift of a barbecue

from w
Recently Peceli was given a lovely barbecue (when his golf club upgraded their barbecue) and he only had to buy the gas bottle and gas. We tried it out last week with marinaded chicken pieces etc. just for three of us, and then last night had a small party with about a dozen friends - from various Pacific Islands. A lovely evening of telling stories and sharing fine food. Our local cultural group meets about every fortnight on a Friday night.

We still haven't got a new fence so the dust continues to blow across the empty block next door but there are signs of some action happening soon - a guy came yesterday to trim back the trunk of the huge date palm as over forty years or more it had taken over a foot or more of the neighbour's space!

A gas-powered barbie? Hmm... Are those common in Australia? I've never seen one before, at least not outdoors. In Japan gas-powered grills are common inside, but outdoor barbecues are almost always the charcoal-fired type like the ones in the U.S..

I hope we have enough free time and fair weather for a barbecue this summer. I always love those!

Hello Moody,
Yes, gas-fired barbecues are very common here - in caravan parks, backyards. One good thing in Geelong are the free electric barbecues in the parks such as at Eastern Beach. We also have a kind of brick barbecue in our back yard where we burn wood but that is harder to control the heat but of course we used that until we were given this gift.
It's getting cooler here now.
w.By the way I still have trouble reading your blog site as it jams because of something in the statistics.
