Meat Free BBQ

We've been Camping.

 

We had glorious weather.

 

For a change, we tried Meat Free BBQ.

 

It wasn't bad at all. Much better than meat alternatives a few years back.

 

Just Burgers & Sausages, the alternatives we tried were very nice, perhaps helped by cooking and eating in the open air.

 

Yet to try Chicken drumstick alternatives, mostly not a good write up.

 

 

Also, Soya Milk.

Different taste, but OK, and just 3% of the sugar of standard milk.

Re: Meat Free BBQ

Check out the etymology, if it's not meat it's not a barbecue.

It's like calling a bus a tram... or putting a cart before a horse and calling it transport.

🙂

Re: Meat Free BBQ

 

barbecue (n.)
 

"to dry or roast on a gridiron,"

 

1690s, "framework for grilling meat, fish, etc.," from American Spanish barbacoa, from Arawakan (Haiti) barbakoa "framework of sticks set upon posts," the raised wooden structure the West Indians used to either sleep on or cure meat. Sense of "outdoor feast of roasted meat or fish as a social entertainment" is from 1733; modern popular noun sense of "grill for cooking over an open fire" is from 1931.

 

Which is what we did !

 

So we barbecued (v.), the point being, it was using meat alternatives.

 

Not how we cooked it !

 

We also cooked the meat alternatives under a grill in the R.V.

 

The R.V. was a new venture for us, having had a static caravan for years, but there was an end of season sale, with excellent discounts, so we took the plunge & bought one.

 

Now we are not so constrained by the weather, nor time of year.

So long as we choose carefully where to travel, bearing in mind Covid restrictions, we can remain in isolation.

Re: Meat Free BBQ

Always though of those RV's as being much (much) bigger than a 'motorhome', many more of which seem to have hit the roads these days. Still, makes a change from seeing them covered up unused alongside the house for fifty weeks of the year. 

What a turnaround eh, literally.

Very interesting, prompted our interest, though limiting to UK, atm.

Re: Meat Free BBQ

@Lægen 

I'm wondering how you're going to safely re-fuel the RV - do Asda and/or Tesco do home delivery for petrol/diesel ?

Or perhaps there's a click-and-collect service whereby you order and pay for an amount of fuel and just drive up to the pump and someone fills your tank without you needing to leave the vehicle?

 

And what about re-charging the vehicles leisure batteries - is solar a viable option or will you have to plug in somewhere?

Re: Meat Free BBQ

Were talking British RV's here, more commonly known as a MotorHome

(Spent a lot of time in the States !) (And Canada)

My mother is Canadian.

 

 

No problem.

Don't forget several petrol stations have attendants to fill up for you.

 

Just like the the "olde days".

The leisure batteries will charge from alternator, as car batteries do.

Probably via 12v socket in vehicle.

Some do in fact have solar panels on the roof....

 

And most campsites have mains power at hard standings for caravans.

 

All "problems" resolvable.

 

Apart from KFC & McD's takeaway drive-ins !

I'm sure others here must own or occasionally rent a motor home.

Lots of info online.

 

We're new to this, and learning.

Re: Meat Free BBQ

Don't really know who lives exactly where around here, but at the moment the whole of south Wales running from Swansea in the west to Newport in the east and as far north as the heads of the valleys road is under lockdown and that has to be one heck of a lot of caravans, motorhomes and RV's all parked up and nowhere able to go.

Fortunately I live out west towards Cardigan and until now at least we've not been placed under any of the new restrictions, although Carmarthen well to the east might well follow LLanelli in the next few days.

So, no motorhome, caravan or RV travelling for me - which is just as well because I don't have any of 'em. 😆    

@RobPN 

I did wonder how they would refuel those things as they must use a fair amount. Having said that, my little bro reckons his four berth does between 100 and 150 to the gallon!  

@Lægen 

"Don't forget several petrol stations have attendants to fill up for you"

Really? Not around here they flaming don't.

Some have Disabled help stickers in windows, and of course very helpful staff at C&MHC sites.

https://www.caravanclub.co.uk/

 

 

They even have shops that sell BBQ's, Gas & Charcoal, and food, meat and otherwise.

 

Dual fuel = Meat & Non Meat on same BBQ !

Or two BBQ's side by side for the purists, which we are not.

Re: Meat Free BBQ

So where are these petrol stations that fill up our tanks for us - assuming we are not disabled. 

Serious question.

I just cannot imagine any leaving those tills in order to come out onto the forecourt.

Be nice if they did but as said, really?
