The 11 Aussies You Encounter At Every BBQ

It wouldn't be an Aussie BBQ without 'em. And you know what else every Aussie BBQ needs? 5 Seeds Cider.

1. The Super Host

Super Host provides the venue, the giant hamburgers, the event hashtag, and the fun. And Super Host never expects you to help clean up when it's all over. Bow down to the gracious Super Host, without whom there wouldn't be a BBQ at all... or this post. #cheersMel

2. The Needy Vegetarian

The Needy Vegetarian always gets their stuff cooked on the BBQ first, lest their vegetables and lentil burgers be contaminated with meat juice. There's no point arguing, it's just not worth it.

4. The Alpha Male

Stand back everyone, the manly man is here to take care of things. He knows how to do everything, and he definitely does not burn the meat. You're in good hands. Phew.

6. The Person Who Brings Extra Snags (Just in Case)

You're eternally grateful for this person. Especially when you forgot (or were too cheap) to bring your own meat.

9. The One That Hasn't Eaten All Day

Will be first in line for food, and last in line to scrape up all the leftovers. You guys, it's fine. This person didn't eat breakfast and their blood sugar is sooo low.

10. Your Uncle

Fact: Uncles were born to man BBQs. Or at least to show up at them to drink and say embarrassing things. It's why you're bound to see your uncle at every single BBQ, every single time. Or at least somebody's uncle.

11. And the Person Who's 100% Committed to This

It might be pouring down rain, and everyone might already be inside ready to order pizza, but this guy insists that the show must go on — rain, hail, or shine. He won't give up. OK, man. Keep fighting the good fight.
