It must be said that barbecuing, or just cooking over charcoal in general, is one of the best ways to cook food.
Whether it's a British hot dog or burger, smoking a brisket US-style, Brazilian churrasco washed down with a caipirinha, or as in the case of singer Dua Lipa, throwing a shrimp on the barbie.
A large plate was stacked high with sweetcorn next to her, and the singer herself was wielding the tongs. On the barbecue itself was a loads of prawns which Dua Lipa was flipping on the grill.
But something was wrong.
The grill purists among you might think that, in line with the beliefs of King of the Hill's Hank Hill, they may have been cooking on gas rather than charcoal. Sorry Hank, but charcoal is better.
That wasn't it.
It could have been that the prawns themselves looked like they'd been thrown on seemingly without seasoning of any kind, not even a squeeze of lemon. Maybe get some garlic butter and smoked paprika on there.
But it wasn't that either.
No, it seems that while the prawns were on the barbecue they weren't cooking at all, be it on gas or charcoal.
That's because, as fans were quick to point out, it looked as though the barbecue hadn't even been switched on.
It appears that the video had been staged for Instagram, and the singer had pushed a few prawns around there for the camera.
Fans were quick to pick up on the error, with one writing: "Doesn’t even look like there’s fire under it, they really could’ve staged it better."
Another wrote: "Flipping them before she shell turns orange is wild", to which another replied: "Flipping a shrimp that’s not even cooking is crazy."
A fourth wrote: "I mean even if it was propane there would be a bit of smoke. Right?"
The grilling video has come as the singer continues in her relationship with music video director Romain Gavras, 42.
The pair had enjoyed dinner at Juntos House restaurant where they were joined by Dua's parents Anesa and father Dukagjin.
They have been together since earlier this year, with the pair off on a romantic holiday together in recent days.
Dua and Romain were first seen together in public when they were spotted holding hands while leaving the Saint Laurent Paris Fashion Week.
