April Barbecue 2016 02 May 2016

It was a slightly chilly day, but that just meant that people huddled round the fire when the wind blew. (Fire good. Fire is my friend.)

Draught beer was Nut-Brown Mild from the Chiltern Brewery.

A variety of burgers went on first, to get the grill properly warm for the set-pieces.

Food arrived!

Set piece #1 was butterflied lamb, marinaded overnight.

and #2 was a slab of pork ribs, ditto.

They vanished quickly.

Deadly Chilli Attack Cheese.

Strange cans of strange beer.

Being soaked with olive oil didn't make much apparent difference to the combustibility of this wooden spoon.

    I had a lovely time, thanks for asking me.

    I regret not having tried the Mild while I was there. Still there will likely be a next time.

    And the pork, if you will not mind an observation, needed to be cooked slightly longer and away from direct flame. The lamb was entirely magnificent though but.

    Mild is getting hard to find, though someone left two intriguing-looking tins which I intend to try.

    The pork had had about 50 minutes in the oven first, so the barbecueing should really have been just for surface texture – i.e. I should have done even less of it.

    Thank you as always for inviting us and feeding us. Pork was yummy as was the lamb, and the goat burgers were divine.

    No goatburgers this time - various steak and venison though. (Thinking about trying hoggetburgers some time.)
