I think maybe it harkens back to the cave-days, when the hunters would bring back the catch and sling it on the fire…?

I suppose it is an outdoor thing..something very rugged and all…with minimum cooking paraphernalia and all…so it becomes a very manly thing to do….good actually atleast someplace women can just laze out and order the food….

Yes, atula, I think that it stems from the place where guys will say, “It’s a man thing, baby.” They are so cute when they get together and study the grill; it’s kind of like when a guy lifts the hood of the car on a Saturday morning, and all the neighborhood guys come to stand around and point, and say “Yup” alot.

My theory or theories or reasons:

- BBQ is full of lore, competition and fat. Men love all of these things.
- It involves fire. Men love to play with fire.
- In the secret universe of unspoken man-communication, cooking BBQ does indeed increase your man-cred.
- Man lives vicariously through whatever he grilling as is typically the center of the (meal) universe.
- There are fewer dishes and surfaces to clean afterwards.

Just my .02

Saucy, I can see the merit in all your answers. As to the “clean up” idea, my husband is convinced he “cleans” the grill. Actually, I do it the next day.

@heretoday - from my absolutely non-scientific research, it seems that most men find the “until the next time we use the grill” method as the most effective type of cleaning. They heat it up (killing two birds with one stone) and THEN remove the hardened aged BBQ goo.

Hmmm, its probably a combination of being manly and wanting to play with fire. Plus it gives a guy a reason to relax, have a drink, and cook some good food of their own.

Hehe Absolutely perfect answer to this question and I’d have to agree with each and
every one of these points.  grin  That seems to sum it up very nicely!
