I was using Habanero Death Dust on chicken wings that day, I think.

I used Death Dust on steaks too by adding it to compound butter and brushing it on steaks while grilling. Added nice heat to the steaks but detracted from the flavor of the meat.

Not to promote thread drift but...

We were eating steamed crabs out back one day and this yellow jacket kept coming down and stealing bits of crab. Back and forth several times. Then it made the mistake of trying to steal bits of MY crab. Whacked it with me crab hammer.

Not to continue thread drift but...

Abnormal quantities of bees buzzing around could be indicative of a nearby (possibly new) beehive, and Africanized bees have been invading the more temperate (southern, southwestern, southeastern) parts of the US for a decade or two. If indeed they are Africanized a patio party could set them off, burned steaks or no.

I don't know where the OP is located but if in an area where these types of bees are a possibility the hazard should be addressed immediately. Do-it-yourself should only be attempted if it's certain they are not Africanized.

Hornets/yellowjackets. Trust me. People mistake them for bees all the time.

And yellowjackets do like meat, especially in the fall. And apparently seafood too!

Hokay, back on topic.

Not me. I had an incident. I got stung maybe 12-15 times. I puffed up. I am very aware of them now. Stirling sprayed them from ~15 feet away. This year I got a coupon from an exterminator to get rid of them for $10. I'm hanging on to that coupon and hoping we won't need it.

I'm located in Toronto, Ontario (Canada).
And now that I've educated myself on what the different types of bees are -- these are definitely yellow jackets.
This is going to make things extremely interesting as on a typical afternoon there are easily 4 or 5 of them hanging out on the deck.
If I'm unable to address this issue by the dinner day then I unfortunately will have to grill the steaks alone outside (risking my life -- I might be a tad bit dramatic here) and then serve the dinner indoors; which would obviously be disappointing.
