Is Grilling A Man's Job Or Not?
Reasons Why Women Who Don't Grill Should:
- THE EXCITEMENT FACTOR - When you grill you get to use matches and pitchforks and the like.
- THE MEN - Have you ever noticed the gathering of men around the BBQ??? Single women, particularly, should do the barbecuing!

- THE TASTE - Grilled food, done properly, is just plain delicious.
