A barbie but, no Ken

One of the great traditions that holds true in New Zealand (and probably the rest of the world) is the outdoor barbecue. Formerly done over coals or wood, now-days it’s done with a gas burner. 100% reliable since having a fire at which you can regulate the heat of, virtually takes the guess work out of the cooking. In less technological days, barbecue plates were wood-fired. If there was no oil, a suitable lubricant for the hotplate was beer. It stopped the meat burning until the fat started melting.
