Hi!

I just fixed my PI to a tree and recorded a time lapse of my BBQ! -
See the coals burn and smoke fly - then the food go from raw to black - all in 20 seconds! :D

Those yellow things look suspiciously like vegetable matter. Which means it's not a proper BBQ... ;)

We don't agree on many things James, but I'm right here with you on this one. ;)

Vegetable matter on a barbecue is an oxymoron........

Dead? I believe Mr. Shakespeare had it about right ... "There are more things in Heaven and Earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy." OK, before anyone calls PETA, I'm just joking about folks who like their meat really rare, where the grill is simply a mechanism used to apply branding marks on the surface of the protein to suggest the briefest proximity to heat. I'm more of a solid medium guy, myself.

BTW, cheese is not, nor is it derived from, a vegetable, at least not real cheese (not to be confused with the processed crap which almost seems petroleum-based, as it's difficult to tell where the "cheese" ends and the plastic wrap begins). Real cheese is a dairy product, i.e., from the bovine species, which is delicious with fava beans and a nice Chianti! :lol:
The best things in life aren't things ... but, a Pi comes pretty darned close! :D

Forget the chocolate buttons: slice a Mars bar thinly and use that instead. Ambrosia, I tell you.

Trouble with that is the slices disappear before they reach the cheese.
Similar to the Galapagos turtles that kept disappearing before they reached the Natural History Museum - and for the same reason.
