Oh, I never knew about point 2 (b). Not that I'm planning on eating raw meat, but handy to know for um... a pub quiz.

I like your barbeque anyway. Maybe the charcoals will be ready by the time the weather improves.

And 'hello!' from me at Somewhere between FB & Flickr!

Very snazzy BBQ!

And I love the sound advice. Point 9 is unavoidable.

Thanks all!

Yeah- a Germ just told us about the meat thing. How German.

As Americans, it is our proud tradition to grill everything, even if it's unsuccessful.

I really need to get a grill.

Fun post! I've actually had to do that before, too. Start cooking on the grill, things don't go so well, finish cooking inside... Looks like all turned out well for you in the end.

We're Back in Berlin Ja!
