A custom initiated and practiced by our friends north of the border, a Canadian BBQ is a gathering of lightly to moderately inebriated males, where due either to excessive alcohol consumption or just general poor judgment, at least one male loses some facial or body hair due to large, out of control flames. Canadian BBQs are common when Canadians, gas, propane, and\or lighter fluid are involved.
Tony had a Canadian BBQ and lost most of the hair on his arm. James had a Canadian BBQ last week, and burned his beard off.
