Hot Off the Grill

11 replies • Last post

My bf was grilling last night. He dropped almost every hot dog down into the ash. Confused
I'm preparing things in the house and he's yelling for me to grab him this and that as he sits back dropping all the hot dogs. Angry

When I moved to the UK I realized that there were things I can't get. It's impossible to get Italian sausage where I am. Here the sausage is more moist and Italian sausage back home is dry. Grill up some red and green bell peppers and it's heavenly. I've tried to recreate it with Cumberland sausage but it's not the same. Those were just dropped down in the ash anyway.

Charcoal or gas? What do you like to grill? What are your outdoor cooking must haves? Are you the grill master?

I love BBQ's and i my fav is Texas Brisket. Cook it in a slow oven for 8 hours or so in bbq sauce, pepper corns and lots of garlic salt. When done, let it sit over nite in the fridge. Slice it up and lather onmore bbq sauce and place it on cookie sheet and to the grill it goes!

I have a gas and a charcoal grill. The gas is more convenient but i prefer the taste of charcoal. I know many don't as they feel it takes over the taste of the food.

Ahhhh mishaps................I love when you have everything prepared and about to fire up the gas grill and learn you are out of propane. That's good times!

Here in Serbia, we mostly use charcoal grill - and BBQ is practically our national dish! lol But we here grill everything - from sausages and burgers to chicken wings and mushrooms. Dunno if it's like that everywhere...

Personally, I absolutely love chicken liver rolled in bacon on grill. Yummy! Eat

That sounds absolutely bloody delicious!

I love a good barbie, but the meat has got to be marinated or basted or something. There's nothing worse than a hunk of meat with nothing on it. And I'm sorry my American friends but hot dogs are gross! I'm talking the red skinned frankfurter ones, yuck!

Italian sausages, chorizos, yum that is making me seriously hungry. And its about a quarter past dinner time right now!

One of my favourites is simple, BBQd hot corn on the cob with a bit of butter on it.

My dad is a BBQ mishap king. He's done the old "run out of gas" plenty of times, but they have swap'n'go gas bottles at petrol stations now so its quick to get a new one. But the best one was the day the gas bottle ignited and the whole BBQ went up in flames. This was when I was a little kid. He called the fire brigade and up rolled 2 full fire engines with about 10 firemen in full protective gear racing into our backyard. They get there, assess the situation, and one, just one of them, puts on a massive glove, reaches in and turns off the gas valve. Problem solved. They stood around for a bit, had a chat and a beer, laughed about how they all came around just for that, then left. My old man was left with no eyebrows and half the hair on his head singed.

Oh my goodness! Ed, there's nothing better than a Vienna Beef hot dog with mustard and onions. Mmm mmm mmm

The corn is delicious on the grill. This is going to sound gross but it's actually really good. Spread mayo on the hot corn, roll in parmesan cheese and sprinkle with a bit of cayenne pepper or chili powder and a squeeze of lime. You can find Elotes all summer in Chicago like this.

Yessssssssss and although that sounds really awful the first time you hear about it the corn is actually quite good. Took me a minute or 2 to accept the mayo but was glad i finally gave in.

As far as the hot dog goes Ed i am not a fan either but it is an American institution. Come live visit here and i'll show the best rubber dog joints around and make a believer out you yet!

Poor dad Ed..........did his eyebrows every grow back in?

Yes - smothering in mayo doesn't sound that great, but I'll take your word for it!

"rubber dog" ?!? Is that what you call them? I just googled that and all I get is pages of toys made out of rubber for dogs. lol

Oh yes the old man's eyebrows grew back bigger and bushier than ever. The smell of burnt hair is not nice though let me tell you!

That sounds pretty good Cat. I wouldn't mind trying that. I'll try just about anything.

We had chicken fajitas on the grill and it was awesome. Marinade the chicken and grill it with red peppers, green peppers, onion and tomatoes. Put it inside a flour tortilla with homemade guacamole and yummmmm!

Oh yes sweet corn too!!

Fajitas yum! I grilled pizza the other night. place your pizza dough on the grill. Once side one is cooked, flip it over and load it up with ingredients. It's a bit easier on a gas grill since you can control the heat. So good.
