Like nearly every other house in Dublin we had a barbecue this evening. In our case: small BBQ, big smoke.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a small BBQ producing so much smoke and so little heat. Truly amazing. We just about managed to get a burger and a sausage for each of us and it must have taken two hours. By the time we finally ate, the sun had disappeared behind the neighbour’s house and the wind had got chilly.

Like in life – timing is everything when you’re having a BBQ!
