Sorry guys, but this is a takeover. Mrs Shack has the microphone...
I used to be the salad spinner at our barbecue events. Ok, I'll give myself a tad more credit. I would be salad spinner, head cocktail waitress, sous chef in charge of sides and desserts and Managing Director of the clean up operation. Basically all of the shit jobs. This wasn't because Jack made me do these things it's because there is a quizzical notion that the barbecue is the man's domain.
is it shit.
I'll let you into a secret. Cooking chicken over some embers or indirect grilling ISN'T HARD yet type Women and barbecue UK into a search engine and you'll get one or two interesting reads, but that's about it. In the US women all over the country are taking over the barbecue scene by storm winning competitive barbecuing and well known pit masters of the trade.
So I made the decision to combine my passion of eating healthy real food with that wonderful taste of barbecue. I was going to learn to do it myself. It took a while to convince Jack to show me how to get the Traeger going as it looks intimidating but hey, Jack, the facade is over my friend, you've been outed. It's so bloody easy it feels like cheating.
Don't believe me? I'll prove it to you...
So ladies, women, females across the UK I IMPLORE you. Next time your fella walks away from the barbecue to grab another can of Stella Artois pick up the tongs and take over and share some of that love. And the washing up. Share that too.
