Grillin' time

Unread postby mswerb » Sun Apr 29, 2007 5:00 pm

Now that the weather has finally seemed to come around for us, hopefully most of you have busted out your grills. Personally, I never put mine away for winter. I cookout every chance I get. Nothing better than a cold beer, in your own freshly cut backyard, in front of the grill. Anyone have a favorite food for the grillin' season? :P :-P :razz:

If you are a fish eater, I highly recommend going out and getting a fish basket, or cedar planks and doing up some salmon. There is nothing better on the grill. A few flips of the basket, about 15 minutes total time and you should be good to go.

Dozen, the steaks sound good to go. I also like tinkering around with marinades, rubs and sauces. Nothing like making your own secret little recipes. Another favorite of mine is beer battered chicken. 8) :cool: 8-)

Just got a Weber grill last year. I cannot reccomend them highly enough. 10 year warranty on all parts. They cook great. A grill is truly one of those items I feel it's well worth it to spend a couple of extra bucks.

Some of my favorite grill items ...

~Steaks, obviously. 2 inch thick strips and filets, cooked medium rare. Or, for the best of both worlds, a couple nice porterhouses. With fresh garlic and onions grilled on the side burner.

~Yellowfin tuna steaks, grilled medium/medium rare.

~Pork tenderloin, marinated in a bottle of Kraft Robusto Italian salad dressing overnight. Then, when grilling over low heat with the lid closed, basted with a mixture of soy sauce and honey.

Damn, now I'm hungry.
I have a Sunbeam grill that I have had for over 7 years now, and I love it. Sunbeam grills are now extinct, but luckily I have an appliance store at the end of my street that carries any part for it. So far, they have not let me down with anything I have needed. Also having 2 propane tanks comes in VERY handy.
Also, try a pizza on the grill, fantastic!

I make bad ass ribs and they are my favorite thing to grill.

I will say that I made some bad ass kabobs in a chipotle/citrus marinade that was just freaking sick today. I will be doing that again this week for sure.

Ever try soaking the pork in a brine solution? Works really well, especially when you'll be smoking or cooking over low indirect heat. Keeps the meat from drying out. In addition to what's been mentioned, what sounds strange but is actually very tasty is beer can chicken.

Matt, I haven't ... I will have to try that. Cause you're right, even basting that bad mother every five minutes, the tenderloin does dry out a little bit.

Johnsonville Brats

Did ya boil em first in beer and onions, or just throw up on the grill? Either way I love em, but the Cheesehead method (which I thought was BS) really adds something.

We do have the old school Lawn Jarts at our house. They are a huge hit at our 4th of July bash.
