"It is a fine thing that America has moved outdoors. I can remember when a barbecue was an uncommon sight. Now every back yard has a cooking setup. They may tower like fortresses and have dozens of subsidiary gadgets as well as chopping blocks, serving shelves and rotary spits. Or they may be a few bricks with a broiler unit from an old stove set on top. "
