it was said:
<<<It is a thick cut steak, usually from the loin portion of the animal,
that is seared over very high heat so that the outside is heavily
caramelized (or even slightly charred) and the center is still red or
even raw.>>>

And I joked:
<<< Ah! Okay. Sounds like how many of the SCA experiences in trying to
roast a whole pig turn out. >>>

To which Dragon said:
<<< That's because people don't understand that you don't roast OVER the
fire but to the SIDE of it.>>>

That can be part of it. Thinking you can cook a whole pig in five or  
six hours seems to be another. Even if you don't burn the pig by  
cooking it over the fire, the grease dripping from the pig into the  
fire has also caused problems.

If it's not *your* dinner it can often be funny. Even if it was your  
dinner, it can sometimes be funny several weeks later.
