What happens when you decide to have a BBQ

By BZdanielle 07 Jun 2017

Summer and "heat waves" are on the horizon, which means it's officially BBQ season!


Whether you're in your garden with a gas grill or in the park with a disposable barbie, you'll probably experience some (if not all) of these unfortunate BBQ party mishaps:

  • Rain, oh glorious, rain

    It's been clear skies all week, then the one day you finally decide to have a BBQ outside, this happens.
  • You forget something crucial
    Like ketchup, plates, or something to actually flip the burgers with... ugh.
  • The boys congregate around the BBQ

    I don't know what it is about grilling that makes men think they're suddenly master grillers, or maybe they're just sneaking food, but they always seem to be huddling by the grill.
  • There's nothing to sit on
    Classic, no one thought to bring chairs or a blanket so you're stuck sitting in the wet grass or standing all day.
  • The meat takes forever to cook

    You've been waiting and waiting and waiting, but those chicken drumsticks still aren't cooked all the way through yet. #Hangry.
  • You fill up on crisps or potato salad
    You're slowly starving to death waiting for the meat to cook, so you end up binging on crisps and things, which makes you too full by the time the meat's ready.
  • The meat hits the deck

    Whether some burgers fall on the ground or into the coals, someone always ends up with the '5-second rule' burger.
  • You have too much or too little
    Yup, it's impossible to get proportions right, so either you have breakfast, lunch and dinner sorted for the next few days or have to make a run for more food.
  • The annoying DJ

    There will always be that one person who takes over the music and only plays music they want to listen to...
  • You'll start to freeze as the sun goes down
    You've been grilling all day in the sun and didn't think to bring a jacket, so you all start to turn blue but stay outside anyway, 'cause summer.

Even though we deal with these mishaps every year, we keep on BBQing... Maybe we'll learn better this year? 


Happy grilling!
