BBQ is great to have for any occasion and for any setting. After all, what is more satisfying than to see beautifully seasoned meat heating up on a bed of live coals? BBQs are also great for people to bond over because it is a group activity. Over the years, BBQs have evolved as one of the best things to do when there is a reunion – be it of friends or of families! Here are some awesome reasons why halal BBQs are just great for bonding with family.
1) Involves everyone
BBQs require the involvement of everyone if it has to be a success. Right from shopping for the BBQ and preparing the halal meat, to grilling it on live flames, BBQs require the assistance and cooperation of everyone in the family. As a result, there is more conversation between people, bringing them closer. This leads to family members learning more about what is going on in each other’s lives, which in turn can create a very strong sense of belonging and a reliable support system for each person in the family.
2) Success depends on everyone’s efforts!
BBQs do not depend on the efforts of only one person but is a group effort. Each person may be good in something different. As such, it is only when each person comes together, bringing each of their talents, that a BBQ can become successful. A family may have someone who is an expert on seasonings, while another may be really good at setting the coals aflame. Yet another person may be a halal shopping pro while another could be really great at entertaining everyone. Needless to say, the success of a BBQ depends on everybody present, which is another reason why it is such an amazing thing to do to get the family bonding.
3) People MUST interact
In an age where everyone is constantly hooked on to their gadget screens, a BBQ is an event where people will simply have to engage in interaction, keeping aside their gadgets for a while at least. As a result, there is not only more interaction but also better quality of interaction – something that is vastly missing from our interaction these days. As a family, it is very important that people engage in better and meaningful conversation so that they can know and understand each other better.
4) Promotes a sense of community and sharing
Invariably, during the BBQ, you will find that people are sharing and helping each other out. For example, an act as simple as passing the mustard can go a long way in promoting positive feelings between two family members who may previously have not been interacting much. Besides, it builds a sort of network, both of an emotional as well as of a social support that can prove to be of great help to you sometime in the future!
