Default grilling

Hope this to be a good catch all for summer time outdoor cooking.

Tonight, lamb chops and zucchini over a gas grill. I don't understand how just using a gas grill makes things tastes so much better, but man does it.

I cooked bacon the other day, on foil, and it was notably better than in my cast iron pan.

Trying beer can chicken, over coals, this Sunday if the weather is on my side.

What are some good go to things for the grill?

Tastes so much better than what?

Charcoal>gas

That said, good thread idea. I have yet to try beer can chicken, but would really like to.

One thing that's much better grilled is corn on-the-cob.

I grilled up some asparagus last weekend. I let the stalks sit in a blend of olive oil, sea salt, fresh garlic, and cracked pepper for a bit before tossing them right on the grill.

OMG. So good.

The asparagus was a bigger hit than my terrible lemon herb chicken it was served with.

Ran out of propane right when they last brats were done

Not terrible the last few times I've started the car after the battery went dead and I recharged it, but almost seems to have a vacuum leak I can't trace. I haven't driven it in a few months, actually. Time to switch to the drunk thread!

I usually use Caesar or an oil based dressing for asparagus. But that does sound good.

Try grilled romaine. Halve it, place halves on a plate cut side up, pour Caesar(oil based, I like "mighty Caesar" from wegmans) on, let sit for 5-10 minutes, grill with cut side up (retaining dressing) for a couple minutes to let the leaves soften and char, flip over and watch out for your eyebrows.

Better than even my seasoned cast iron skillet.

Charcoal > gas > skillet.

I tried corn on the cob Sunday, but didn't realize how long it was supposed to be on the grill and fuxed it. I haven't grilled in over 4 years so I'm just getting my skills refreshed.

My grill, my parents got it for me for Christmas, is one side gas one side coal. Now I just need a smoker

I did brats Sunday when I christened the charcoal side, burnt one, still ate it the other 4 were perfect. Johnsonville, if there's a better brat, I don't want to know about it.

A friend says to keep to cylinders... maybe when I'm balling like that I'll have two for rotation.

Gotcha. I don't have a cast iron skillet, but try to grill just about everything that I can.

I see we are on the same page!

I have found that grilling corn on the cob takes a bit of practice, and doesn't always come out as expected, especially if you aren't used to doing it. My method is to basically shuck it completely, rub it with butter, season with salt and pepper (at least), wrap in foil, and then grill for ~20 minutes minimum, depending on temperature, but often longer. I will usually make sure the corn is well on its way before I put the meat on the grill.

Is your grill a Char-griller brand, by chance?

Charcoal for sure, but propane is good. For corn on cob, we leave it in the husk, wrap it in foil then cook it for a good long while, turning. Some soak in water before wrapping in foil but I haven't tasted a difference. Also if charcoal, throw in hickory chunks after coals are going. Not too much though.

Cookin'

Yeah, I really need to buy some extra corn and try some different methods this summer. I've never gotten any complaints, but would like to try out some different methods.

I have also been experimenting with different wood chips, but have not settled on a specific one, yet.

I can pretty much picture what you have. If you wanted, you could add the side-fire grill to the charcoal side to give you more options. I got one of those for my full size charcoal grill and I have been able to make some pretty tasty smoked things, primarily pulled pork, shredded chicken, and smoked meatloaf.

I had a smallish portable gasser, but it broke. The other one I have isn't the best grill. Some semi-portable coleman camping thing I got for free. uses the small propane bottles. It's not the best, but it works and it's convenient enough anyway.

I'll get a better one someday...

asparagus is my go to dish ever since my father in law got me a 10 pound sack of fresh asparagus from the Hutterites that were his neighbors (he was a farmer). It was just-picked fresh when I got the huge sack of green stuff. I tried cooking it every way I could think of. grilled is absolutely great. I usually sloshed a little Italian dressing on it before grilling. Another favorite was to steam in white wine (just a quarter cup or so in the bottom of the hot cast iron pan) get the pan hot, drop the asparagus in and roll it around just to slightly brown it (just for about 30 seconds total), dump in the wine, cover and let sit a couple minutes. pour out any remaining wine and top with a little Parmesan cheese and some bacon bits, then put under the broiler for a minute or two, just enough to melt the cheese. very, very good.

Have a Weber that my dad got me for a house warming gift 13 yrs ago. Still got it, still use it. Don't have propane. Got the medium size but now that the family has grown, need the big size. Best thing I grill is salmon. Marinate with honey and dill, then smoke with hickory.

**** charcoal. Too much hassle, not worth it IMHO. I grill almost every day during spring/summer and 2-3 nights a week fall/winter so gas is obviously much easier. When camping and there's one of those permanently installed, community charcoal grills, then fine.

(a) that's not ****ing camping.

(b) you're a woman. A flabby lipped, sopping wet, stagnant, cheesy vagina woman.

Aaaanyway...

Made souvlaki the other night. First run, pretty much spot on.

1/4 or so olive oil
5 healthy dashes of red wine vinegar
5 cloves of garlic, finely minced
crushed up bay leaf
**** ton of dried oregano
2-3 tbsps of lemon juice

cut the pork (loin) into 1.5" hunks, marinated overnight, skewered and grilled over mesquite. Served it with a "Greek" salad and a vinaigrette that strongly resembled the marinade plus a bit of feta mixed in.

Yeah, pretty much ridiculously awesome.
