  1. Enjoy your BBQ, it sounds like a grand time! We are also heading to a BBQ this afternoon with some friends before Brad’s parents arrive tomorrow and the next week is spent with them. I love a good picnic/BBQ.

    I also hate unsolicited advice, it leaves me in quite the sorry state. I have been known to do it to others on occasion but I really do make a conscious effort not to. Sometimes my mouth/fingers work faster than my brain though and it never ends well. I really don’t understand the people who regularly give their advice when they know it’s not welcomed, especially if they know the recipient will definitely not take it well.

    • That’s exactly it – I don’t know anyone that responds well to unsolicited advice, so I don’t know why anyone thinks it wise. I sometimes wonder if there is an element of compulsion; I DO know there is/was a level of delusion at one point.

      And the BBQ is going well, thank you. 😀

  2. On the subject of BBQ bastes, I’m obviously not American, but I do have a very tasty sticky marinade recipe, which you may (or may not, up to you) want to have a go with.

    1 tsp mustard powder
    1 tsp nutmeg
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp ground cumin
    you could add in some pepper here too, obviously I don’t, but that’s just me – I’d suggest a tsp as well
    2 tbsp of dark brown sugar
    2 tbsp of virgin olive oil
    1 tbsp of lemon juice (or orange if you want to go a slightly sweeter route)
    whizz together all of the above in a blender, pour into a plastic bag and add the meat to the bag, squiding so that the entire surface of the meat is in contact with the goo and then seal the bag and put it in the fridge for at least overnight, but preferably 24 hours, before retrieving and barbecueing. If there’s any goo left in the bag, this can be used as a baste 🙂
