It’s time for David and Samantha Cameron to fire up the barbie again — and not just any grill.

President Obama and his wife, Michelle, presented the British prime minister and his wife with a wood- and charcoal-burning grill engraved with American and British friendship flags. The grill came with his-and-her White House chef jackets embroidered with the Camerons’ names.

The White House said the gifts commemorate the Obamas’ May 2011 visit to London, when the Obamas and Camerons held a cookout for American and British members of the military.

Mrs. Obama also gave Mrs. Cameron a vase of White House honey, and the Cameron children got beanbag chairs embroidered with their names and the presidential seal.

The Camerons are on an official visit to Washington.
