Got any Memorial Day plans? Maybe you’re heading to a parade and dressing up in those American flag shorts (guilty). Or perhaps heading to the public pool to kick off swimming season is more your style. Whatever you do, there’s one Memorial Day staple that all Americans must experience on Monday— the BBQ.

While barbecuing makes basically everything taste delicious, it does run a high fail risk. Fires start, food is burned and the entire experience becomes a whole bunch of shenanigans. There are also situations where people try to get creative when it comes to barbecuing, like using a shopping cart as a grill, and that's just wrong. So when you fire up the grill this Memorial Day, remember these BBQ fails, and try to avoid any sort of reenactments.
