    BBQs or BBQ's

    Hi all

    Does BBQs need anapostrophe, if one is using it in the following way: I had three BBQs at the weekend? Can you also please explain why or why not.

    This is a disputed area; some people use the apostrophe, while others don't. I see no need for the apostrophe there; I would onls put an apostrophe in when it was possibly unclear, in a phrase like 'mind your p's and q's', though here the ambiguity can easily be resolved by using upper case.
