Bringing the BBQ out of hibernation - what had been living in yours?

Recommended Posts

With it being the first proper decent weekend of the summer down here in Melbourne thoughts immediately turned to the Sunday night barbie.

 

Having sat outside under wraps for nearly 6 months, it was with some trepidation that I took a look to see what was hiding underneath.

 

There, in the middle of the hot plate, was a decent sized stick insect (deceased) as show in the attached photo.

 

I have heard some tales of other creatures taking up residence inside barbecues. What have you found in yours?

Not game to take the cover off :laugh: Probably red back spiders they seem to like our place.

We have been using our bbq all year so it hasn't had much down time, though given the visits we have been receiving from our local wildlife lately it wouldn't surprise me at all if something has taken up residence in the past week or so. :eek:

Not much flavour and definitely now satisfying!

 

Yes - you really need a plate full, deep fried and sprinkled with seasame seeds. Brings out the flavour.

Thinking about it now, I should have used it as a skewer!
