For that, Moms Buzz wants to share with you the grilling etiquette, the dos and don’ts. Please share this with your husband if he’s usually the person manning the grill at home. Take notes…

Grilling Etiquette

When invited to a Barbecue:

  • DO feek OK bringing your own sauce. 49% of grillers say it is acceptable.
  • DO expect themeat to be provided by the host, but pull your weight by brining your own sides and beverages. Go the extra mile and bring enough to share with others.
  • DON’T touch the grill! 61% of people say that only the host/hostess shold “man” the grill. As a guest you can look, but don’t touch.

As the host of a barbecue:

  • DO have all grilled food ready at relatively the same time.
  • DO offer grilled vegetarian options.
  • DON’T feel obligated to invite your neighbors.

In general, when grilling with others:

  • DO start eating your food if your meat is finished before everyone else’s.
  • DO stake your claim at a community grill by laying out your grilling utensils or meat.
  • DO be considerate of others. It is only appropriate to flip your own meat and the meat of others when manning a grill.

My real job in life is raising my 3 kids and having a nice, healthy and active family life. Along the way, I realized that motherhood didn’t come with a manual and frequently asked questions so I had to learn my way through with the help and advice of other mothers and that is how I decided to start a blog about tips for busy moms, The Moms Buzz, a lifestyle blog about only the buzz that matters. Modern moms are busy busy, and whatever tips make our lives easier we are ready to try them, we don’t have the time to read and read lengthy advices, but we can certainly read 1-2-3-SOLVED.
