PostSubject: Grillin' In the Summer...   Fri Jun 13, 2008 12:39 am

Been doing a lot of grilling since I got home.
Well... I do the prep work and Stray tends the fire.
Charcoal Brickets and a chunk or two of hickory, pinion or mesquite. (I'm trying to convince Stray that apple wood is not just for pork Exclamation Exclamation What a Face )

So... with just the three of us, there's usually more fire than food. With the heat pouring on, most often we're more interested in cold foods rather than hot meals.

Been grilling up roasts for cold plates and sandwiches, chicken and some singleton steaks (I bought a freezer pack back in Tulsa, and we're getting down to the last of it) to put on salads, and burgers to put in the freezer for the winter months when a bit of grilled taste will be a welcome change. Tonight, decided to have him grill some sausages to see what they'd taste like on soda biscuits.

Of course, I like to nuke spuds until they're almost done, split them in half and set them on the grill to brown. Or I wrap them in aluminum foil with butter & herbs, maybe some onion and carrots... mmmmm... That foil pouch works for vegies and mushrooms, too. But it you're starting out with frozen vegies, set them out on the grill first... unless you're cooking a roast or something. Amazing how long frozen vegies take to cook, when a frozen steak gets done pretty quick... (I like a bit of black on the outside and a nice rich pink on the inside...)

I'm going to look up how to make bread on the grill... and biscuits... geek

Basically... besides the fact that I'm a barbarian and think that fire cooking produces the best flavored food, I'm trying to keep the heat out of the kitchen. It was an old porch, and there are no vents into the kitchen. In the winter, this is fine... a small heater keeps the pipes from freezing and cooking keeps it comfortable. But in the summer, the AC doesn't get in there and it's just plain awful!

Soooo, uh... anybody got any spare suggestions?

I love grilled food too. I really should do more of it. Or I could come stay with you and eat your excess! Very Happy

Sure!

I'll send the excess furniture and saved hoarded stuff home with you when you decide it gets too cold in the Ozarks. Wink
