I want one of those really big-ass barbecues. The kind that’s all shiny metal, with a giant tank of propane or something, so I can cook lots of meat – sizzling raw flesh of dead animals.
And a place to hold a keg of beer for me and my man friends.
But it’s got to have an enormous flat screen TV, so I can watch football games while I’m cooking the meat. (Or Bette Midler movies when it’s not football season. Me and my man friends love Bette Midler.)
But wait. Is this a safety issue? Can you have a keg of beer next to a big-ass tank of propane?
Of course its safe, how else will you put out accidental fires?
Can you have a keg of beer next to a big-ass tank of propane?
It depends on whether your friends are the type to try and tap the propane tank after they’ve had a few.
One of the main risks to life these days is death. By taking a few sensible precautions, this unnecessary risk can be avoided; check the nearest available exits, wear a cycle helmet, and assume the brace position.
You can and SHOULD have a keg of beer next to a big-ass tank of propane. The real safety issue here, John, is the Bette Midler movies.
I believe it is a requirement to have both propane and kegs at all functions involving man friends. Without them, how will we cull the weak from the herd?
Not coincidentally, the page on Top 10 Grilling Blogs is going to be the Top 10 site of the day for tomorrow.
My intro blurb (visible only Sunday on the front page) links to discussion of rapper’s custom teeth-grills as well as the insane $10,000 grill of doom.
But seriously check out the Big Green Egg. I hear that it’s excellent both as a grill and as a smoker.
