‘Plate piling’ has been voted the most common barbeque behaviour, according to research.
A BBQ lovers research of 2,000 adults who enjoy a good grill has found 28 per cent admit to loading their dish with as much food as possible when attending the popular garden get together.
Fear of an empty buffet, not being bothered to get up again for seconds and having eyes bigger than their bellies were cited as the top reasons for this. Other classic BBQ archetypes include someone who will simply enjoy having food delivered to them so they never have to stand up – and there will always be a ‘food dropper’.
Nearly a fifth (18 per cent) think a barbeque will always have someone who insists on cutlery rather than eating with their hands. And 35 per cent reckon every barbeque has someone who considers it their job to make sure everyone’s drinks are topped up at all times.
