Questions from the PaL Mailbag... 
QI was discussing with my tutor about an upcoming family barbeque we are hosting. My tutor mentioned it may be a problem to barbeque fish and meat at the same time, can you clarify whether it is a problem and, if so, why?
ABarbeques are popular at this time of year, if the weather stays dry for a bit.  Most kosher butchers sell a good range of BBQ meats, so it should be straightforward in terms of kashus, but there is one rule to look out for - avoiding cooking fish and meat together.  Of course, fish is technically pareve - certainly not meaty, but the Talmud mentions a concern about cooking or eating meat and fish together.  The reason for this is not clear, but it appears to be a metaphysical issue.  As such, fish and meat should not be cooked together on a BBQ; if you want to cook fish after the meat has been removed, clean the surface first to remove any remaining food.
