Default BBQ Season Rules

We are about to enter the BBQ season. Therefore it is important to refresh your memory on the etiquette of this sublime outdoor cooking activity. When a man volunteers to do the BBQ the following chain of events are put into motion:

1) The woman buys the food.

2) The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables and makes dessert.

3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man who is lounging beside the grill - beer in hand.

4) The woman remains outside the compulsory three meter exclusion zone where the exuberance of testosterone and other manly bonding activities can take place without the interference of the woman.

Here comes the important part:
5) THE MAN PLACES THE MEAT ON THE GRILL.

6) The woman goes inside to organize the plates and cutlery.

7) The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is looking great. He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he flips the meat.

Important again:
8) THE MAN TAKES THE MEAT OFF THE GRILL AND HANDS IT TO THE WOMAN.

9) The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins, sauces, and brings them to the table.

10) After eating, the woman clears the table and does all the dishes.
And most important of all:

11) Everyone PRAISES the MAN and THANKS HIM for his cooking efforts!!

12) The man asks the woman how she enjoyed "her night off', and upon seeing her annoyed reaction, concludes that there's just no pleasing women.....

Yeah the hard work of the American male Reminds me of the praise they get for the funny card and birthday gift that they didn't pick out or how nicely the house is decorated for the holidays.

Gee, I made 6 racks of ribs over the weekend and I had to run to the store myself for all my prepackaged side dishes. I even had to open my own bag of salad.

Well, if it's tomato based, it's a fruit salad.
