  •  I was unhappy at a BBQ once. (1+ / 0-)

    True story: a friend married a Berber guy whose family up in Kabilie raised sheep. He loved him some sheep ribs on the barbie, so he procured some and proceeded to set the whole grill on fire. Seems the sheep in Kabilie are not as fat as our sheep, and he didn't trim the inch and a half of fat off the back of the ribs. The fat can under the grill holds a gallon. We emptied it twice before it caught fire, and then we had to get the propane tank off the grill before it exploded. Luckily no one was hurt and the grill did not explode. In fact, after a good cleaning the family were able to get twenty dollars for it at their garage sale. But the grease stain has soaked so far into the concrete of the patio they couldn't even etch it out with muriatic acid before they sold the house and moved to Chicago. The ribs? Let's just say we sent out for pizza.

    And She said unto them: "Let these Words serve thee as thy Sig Line."
