Bbq is popular here(Philippines). I actually had a bbq party by the beach for my 18th birthday with my young friends..
I just thought that the young once wouldn't enjoy the smoke of the bbq and the music..
No, we don't use propane tank for grilling. We use charcoal. It's actually much cheaper. And the conversations start from the lighting of the charcaol(like ohad)..We use a paper or something
. It serves two purposes.. an opportunity to socialize and to save money..hehe
