Do you find that the male in the house usually cooks on the barbecue, even if he doesn't normally cook inside?

I don't know why this is but when I had a partner, all of them seemed to do this!
They didnt touch a thing in the kitchen, however somehow it was the manly thing to do -make the barbecue with a beer in one hand!

It must be an Australian custom??

I sometimes did the barbecue as one of my partners could not get it right to do medium/rare and always did well done which I do not like at all.

I don't have a male in the house, however when I did...yes they love to do this...think it is an Australian tradition. Most women ARE happy to let them though as we generally do most of the cooking inside

I live by myself,and my son has grown up to cook as much as I ever did when he was little.He is now a chef! The B.B.Q was just an extension of the kitchen for us,and we BOTH did the cooking,whether indoors or outside......
Well this is Australia and it's generally accepted and expected that blokes do the barby.

I think they like it because it's social, they stand around the hotplate, a stubby in hand, talking footy and cricket and all things sport and everybody is just fine with that.

It's probably almost as good as getting permission to exile cars from the garage to turn it into a man cave. LOL.

My husband cooks dinner most nights so it's no different if we're using the barbeque.
Always! In my younger days, I happily did the barbeque cooking but now I'm married and my husband is always the one to cook when a barbeque is involved.... to be fair he does quite a lot of cooking inside too :)
He has taken a typically male approach to it, watched YouTube videos on how to build the best fire for cooking, experimented with different fuels, researched marinades.... and I don't know what else! Me, I just used to shove in a load of charcoal, light it and cook but that's not good enough apparently :)
My husband typically does the barbecue cooking, yes. I've done it at times, but usually it is him.
A lot of of tends to like to do the BBQ but not normal cooking - I don't know why this is

Yes! Am happy to do so! Gives me a break!
When son visits, he takes over. He's a Chef!
Food is always delicious. I still prepare accompaniments, though!
I don't even know how to turn the BBQ on!! And that's fine with me. I'm sure it's not difficult, but I've never had to as hubby always does the BBQ cooking.
I have a wonderful male in the house, but the only BBQ we've ever owned was 1 that I 'won' from having a Tupperware party, many, many years ago. It was a very small & one could carry it in 1 hand! It was put outside on the walkway to the clothesline, at the side of the house, & was never used. I don't even know if its still there! It would be pretty rusty by now, if it is still there!
