Man and fire go hand in hand.
Our relationship with fire is something that’s been ingrained in us from our time as cavemen.
Even the most disinterested of male cooks will don the apron and pick up the tongs when it comes to a barbecue.
Sadly, my masculinity was called into question when I was unable to obtain a decent heat using coals.
But would using a gas barbecue make me even less of a man?
Anyway, help was at hand. A quick search on YouTube helped me realise where I was going wrong.
The result? Hot coals, a sizzling rack and a feeling of pride and relief as I provided man’s red fire and perfectly-cooked meat for my clan!
