Yesterday evening I did something amazingly stupid. After making sure the coals in the barbecue were hot I cleaned the grill, then lifted said grill to spread the coals out. The trouble is, I grabbed the grill with my bare hand.


Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I reached out and attempted to lift a 475* metal grill with my bard hand.


The good news is that it was my left hand I seared rather than my right.

Ah yes. It's known as a play on words.

"Since everyone else is telling you food, try out some foil pack cooking. It's really difficult to screw up, and you can make all your meals before hand. Just grab a packet, burry in redhot coals, when you can smell it, it's time to eat."
