Toadcast #184 - The Barbecast

This is called the Barbecast because we finally went out and replaced our shitty old one this morning, and today we intend to christen the new one.  The previous one had actually rusted through, and the only way to hold the burning coals in place was a shonky combination of chicken wire and tin foil. Not ideal.

It's funny though, the two nations who go about barbecueing things the most actually know nothing whatsoever about the barbecue.

Dear Aussies and Americans, if it is powered by gas rather than charcoal it IS NOT A BARBECUE.  It is simply a cooker you keep outside.  Cultural differences ... blah blah ... practicality ... witter ... special smoked wood chips ... etc etc etc.... BOOOORING!  You're wrong, you don't know what you're talking about, it's not a barbecue unless you have to light your own coals.  Full stop.  Non-negotiable, this is simply a fact of life: if it is gas-fired then it is a cooker, not a barbecue, irrespective of whether or not you use it out of doors, and you can stop calling it that and kidding yourself you actually barbecue, because you don't.

And that is that.
