Default Very late post with an interesting story???

2 weeks ago my kids karate class had a summer picnic. It was a pot luck so we signed up. Everyone signed up dessert, mostly store bought stuff. Some homemade food. I decided to grill burgers and hot dogs...

I got the weber q ready. But then Maribel said take the kettle instead.



Cleaned up the kettle and loaded everything on the truck.





It's amazing how many people don't know what a chimney starter. I was explaining to some people how it works and the purpose.

I live on California and there were some that said they are allergic to smoke??? Some people over react. I was told to move to the other end of the picnic area to grill and I said no. I'm not moving my family to the sun where they wanted me. I explained that once the chimney did it's job it would get a nice fire and we would only smell burgers and hot dogs cooking.

Few parents backed me up and said we are in a park it's going to smell like bbq!!!'

They wanted me by the sun see pic below



I was on the corner where the shade was.



I forgot to take pics of the cook or plated pics. :(

This is the only one. Needless to say everyone ate my burgers and hot dogs



Here we are....
Had to grill a turkey burger for someone can't remember who asked to put it on.



Thanks for looking.

Tony and Maribel

Good for you Tony! Did they have to call the EMS out to haul the smoke inhalation affected people to the hospital, or were they the first in line for some good smoked burgers and franks? I suspect the latter.
I'm allergic to sweets, they make me fatter, but I just put up with it and enjoy them anyway.

Have a Blessed day!

Omar

Good job holding your ground, passive aggressive bullying is how people get their way anymore. You have more patience than me, I would have packed up and left!

Seems like if you're allergic to smoke, then you would have a reaction to eating those smoked burgers and dogs? No problem eating the smoke huh? You're a saint Tony!

Glad you didn't move...surprised that you don't have to get a "grill permit" for the park, it would likely come with a special enviro tax as well.

That's crazy that they asked you to move. You offered to cook for them. I agree I probably would'nt have been as nice either.
Glad you stood your ground too and you got to enjoy the park too.
