The bay scallops? Yeah I like those too. With their size tho and being so tender, I've always thought that trying to skewer them would just tear them apart, so I don't grill them. I love them in stuff like gumbolaya.

i agree

i have a charcoal grill/offset smoker...it's not very good as a smoker though. for one it was a cheapo and 2 offset smokers just seem to be an inferior smoker

(if you get the wind right off the lake, the charcoal will be difficult to lite/keep lit, will burn and heat unevenly, and can melt the siding on your house if you have a very small patio/have someone living above you with a balcony)


This can be solved fairly easily if you get a chimney. As long as you can get a lighter lit long enough to burn the paper on the bottom, the rest of the charcoal should light without a problem. Chimneys also cut down significantly on the wait time for the charcoal to ignite/cool down. The only downside is that you will have to replace it every couple of seasons, but you can get one for less than $20, so it's more than worth it in my opinion.

I hope everyone had a fun St. Patrick's Day. I grilled buffalo chicken sandwiches yesterday, today was chicken breasts, red potatoes and carrots on the grill. Having a frothy Guiness, watching basketball and belching B-)

So I caught my grill on fire last week :-b I cleaned it when I first started grilling back in March but forgot and/or neglected to notice that the grease 'slide' at the bottom that leads to the drip pan was removable for cleaning. So I just kinda scraped it and let it be. Well, that grease slide caught fire while I was making dinner. It turned into that bellowing black smoke like an oil rig fire, and the temperature was up to 500 and rising fast. I didn't know what else to do so I grabbed the fire extinguisher from the kitchen and gave the slide two quick blasts from it. The whole thing was a mess to clean up but the darn thing is scrubbed like new now.

I've gone through my first tank of propane already B-)

speaking of scrubbing, I cleaned the garage today and pulled the Weber kettle that I bought back in 1994 into the sunlight and cleaned it up. It's the grill I bought when I first got a 'real' job and my first place on my own. It still had food on the grate. Something orangish brown, maybe bbq sauce? :-?

Chicken, asparagus, carrots taters and corn tonight. Local grocery had leg quarters on sale for 82 cents a pound. Those are some great grilling indirect with some Stubb's sauce. :-L

I'm getting a bit burned out already on the vegetables that I consider grillable. I'll list the usual candidates that I grill, and if any of you have suggestions on other items, post away and I'll give them a try.

Corn on the cob

Asparagus
Summer squash
Carrots
Potatoes (mostly red taters, but some sweet taters/yams as well)


Brussels sprouts
Eggplant

Since I usually have two or three veggies with each meal the combinations and repetition is wearing thin. Got any favorites you can suggest?

WTF? Nowhere in your usual suspects list do you have the ultimate grilling veggie - red/yellow/orange/green bell peppers... How do you go through life without grilling these yummy gifts of Mother Nature????

Ah, yeah, those. I don't care for bell peppers other than red ones. I grill them and then use them in recipes, it's just not pepper season yet. I do like to add grilled red pepper to creamed corn. I have a pretty good recipe for that, maybe I can dig it up and post it.

Too freakin hot to grill lately. I've got dozens of pics from the last couple months but the grilling enthusiasm doesn't seem to be what it used to. Maybe now that it's Memorial Day and people will start grilling it'll pick up.
