What? No Memorial Day Cook Out Thread?

Unread postby mattvan1 » Sat May 23, 2009 1:29 pm

I guess someone had to start this thread. Despite the hangover from last nights celebration, the beginning of the grilling/smoking season "officially" begins this weekend.

Very lucky that the local grocer here has all bone-in steaks at $3.99 per pound
Last night - smoked pork loins, grilled T-bones
Today - not sure, probably beer can chicken
Sunday - Smoked brisket and ribs
Monday - Check cholesterol, probably grilled bone-in ribeyes

What's on your menu?

(Spelling smak is sooooooooooo lame, but I could not resist :cheers:

BTW, it doesn't matter what you grill.

As long as you grill.

hey guys....im making chicken tonight (on the grill) with the Quaker Steak and Lube Arizona Ranch wing sauce. I am using boneless chicken tenders instead of breasts, so that the chicken will absorb more marinade in each piece. There are two ways im thinking about doing this and i need your expertice....Do I .....

A.) marinade for 1.5 hours, then throw on he grill

B.)marinade for an hour, bake on 250 degrees for 45 minutes (or so), then throw on the grill

Dudes, I have been on vacation all week and have cooked out just about EVERY day. Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial kick off of summer. My favorite time of year.

Rib Cook-off earlier today (sunday) downtown. I'm still full and it's been 9 hours since I ate.

Grilling burgers tomorrow for lunch and then watching the Tribe game from Wabo's seats.

Think it was Saturday when we did fish. Grilled tilapia for the wife and it turned out perfect.
Tried to do cat fish on the grill but it wasn't quite right. I couldn't get the nice crispy skin like I could get in a pan.

Still eating leftover "potato" salad for lunch today. The german in me can not get enough of that stuff.

Croaker and Blue fish. Caught a bunch of undersized flounder, but none that made the 19" size minimum.
