Tony makes a good if not blatant point of pointing out that yes indeed we were invited across to his place for the Christening of his BBQ. There was food, there was drink, albeit soft drinks for me :o(, and there was much prodding of charcoal. I think as a first effort at a BBQ for Tony he did alright, and many lessons have been learnt for the next one, like more charcoal at the start, patience is a virtue when BBQing, and avoid standing near the BBQ whilst it is heating up as the warping tray can eject charcoal with lethal force (well it would be if we were stood there).

Another key lesson, BBQ's in May are cold when started at 6, so start them slightly earlier in the day, and later in the year!!

There, that should keep the mithering Bolton lad happy.
