Cinco de Mayo Top Five Party Tips from iBBQ | iBBQ
Summer may be official barbecue season, but many kick off their outdoor cooking in spring, when the weather takes a turn for the better. The question is, how will you grill this spring? Will you cook the old-fashioned way, or will you enter the 21st Century with a modern grilling table from iBBQ?
Don't Get Stuck in the Corner!
Your average barbecue sticks out like a sore thumb. You've seen it at every backyard party - that large metal appliance that stands off to the side or sits tucked away inside an outdoor kitchen enclave. The same goes for the traditional barbecue experience. Everyone mills about or sits at separate tables. Here are the wanderers, who circle around the party awkwardly, trying to find a group to join or a conversation to enter. Meanwhile, the cook slaves away at the grill, isolated from the rest of the party. If you're lucky enough to have a master chef at the helm, guests may get to eat at the same time or thereabouts. Get saddled with an amateur though, and it's a free-for-all. Some are digging into their meat, others have moved on to dessert, and the unlucky few sit around with empty plates, waiting to get served their first course. In other words, the typical American barbecue is a fractured experience. The cooking is separate from the eating, and the eating is separate from the socializing. If we don't complain, it's because we don't yet know that there's a better way. There is - and it's time to embrace it.

A Social Experience

Watch the flames dance. Savor the food.
