Leaden skies unfortunately don’t always put off these pyrotechnic hooligans, as they line up their sausages to savage.

Whatever you do don’t eat anything they have cooked. It’s likely to be either charcoal ( good for the digestion but in small amounts ) or nicely raw in the middle ( good for nothing )
