Have You Barbecued Drunk?

It is unofficially summer! Over 70% of will attend a barbecue. That means we will be grilling and drinking more, many times at the same time! Apparently, drunk barbecuing is a thing and people do it quite a bit. I know that isn’t shocking information, but now we have the stats to prove it. In a recent survey 37% of Americans admit to drunk barbecuing. A majority (55%) are men. Of those that barbecue drunk, they are 4x more likely to get hurt. Let’s see, getting drunk around an open flame, what could wrong? Only 6% of people that barbecue sober get hurt compared to 25% of those that barbecue drunk.

Just like we don’t drink and drive. This summer have a designated barbecue-er. Be safe, have fun, and enjoy barbecuing this summer.
