May I suggest Shoreditch park:

Pros:
Big open-space for SCIENCE!
Not too far from the hackspace
Co-op nearby for booze/meats/disposable BBQs
Nice pub nearby (Rosemary branch)

Cons:
No WiFi coverage - 3G is fine however

Victoria park is great for a BBQ. Brilliant butcher (Ginger pig) & fish monger next to the park.

It's a BBQ, you're supposed to be social, not merely "sitting with people who are being social"!

Wait, sitting with people isn't being social?

So that's what I've been getting wrong!

BBQs don't need to follow rules. Only people (and robots) need to follow rules.

I did let a hack space member borrow my 3G modem, along with a PAYG card, the device is a MiFi.. If that person is interested in bringing it, then that's one additional useful hotspot available.

Do we actually have a BBQ rig for this? Because there's a large
half-barrel sort being thrown out up the road from me today. It looked
like it's never been used (paint intact) but I didn't check for rust
damage. Half-barrel in a simple wheeled frame.
I was more interested in the old power tools being thrown out too.

It'd be hard to get into town on the train, and we don't have storage
space even temporarily for it here. However I could possibly move it
from their front garden to outs, but I'd need someone to come collect it
ASAP.

I vote for Easter Weekend. But I'll probably cancel part of the
hackweekend and come a long if you chose next weekend. It would be
cruel to make people work when there is park and BBQ available.

It's common practice in Shoreditch park - whatever the rules say.

Looking at the Doodle it looks like Monday the 25th is a good first
BBQ attempt day.

We can always have a barbeque another day if the first one is rained
off, or people are suffering from serious charred meat deficiencies.

I shall put it on the calender it in a bit.

Just to clarify, because that came out a bit flippantly:

The wiki is for developing pages that need the most correct and up-to-date information.  Anything that changes quickly is best put on there.  The mailing list is generally used for sounding out ideas with the almost 1000 people with an interest in the space, and for making last minute announcements (because not everyone follows Twitter).  However, any arrangements on the mailing list should be made on the wiki.  Forwarding stuff to the list guarantees that some people have older, filtered information, and usually means there's stuff missing on the wiki page.

Offered on the wiki page, but just in case others don't look and/or I
entirely forget to look at the wiki page again between now and the BBQ
- would it be useful for me to bring along a first aid kit in case of
injury/burns/etc.?

Nah, I'd rather keep the pain there to stop me making it worse; I've already had a couple of lovely moments of other enthusiastic turning resulting in a yelp and cursing. To be fair as long as I don't strain etc it's not too bad.
