7. Grilling is an almost ceremonial activity—one of the oldest rituals on Earth.
There’s a correct method to preparing the barbecue grill, waiting until the coals achieve just the right temperature. It’s a man’s job to grill, to cook the meat to perfection to just the right degree of char to make it perfect. It’s tradition and a rite of passage of many men to conquer the grill-dom.
8. Grilling brings out guys’ inner caveman…and they like it.
With an apron that proclaims “kiss the cook,” tongs in one hand and cold beer in the other, grilling is the perfect weekend activity. You have to wear a tie at work and act civilized. When you grill, you can let your inner caveman come out, forget the morning shave, don’t put on deodorant, and rough it in the great outdoors. Well, the backyard, at least.
