Grilling on the Grill

Summer is right around the corner -- and you know what that means. Grilled food. I am really lucky now because we have an awesome gas grill. It's easy and super nice to just crank on the grill and get grilling. For years I have been using a Weber and charcoal... sometimes with apple wood chips for smoking or other woods (oak always reminds me of Black Bart's steaks -- and can I tell you there's nothing like aged beef cooked over oak coals!!) I use the weber for specialty wood grilled foods -- otherwise, the gas grill really is nice and convenient. Plus, it cleans itself when you crank it up and burn it off. Grilled vegetables are one of my favorites. Skewer them. Roast them right on the grill. Olive oil, freshly ground sea salt, cracked pepper. Delicious. The simplest foods are sometimes the easiest and most delicious. Yummy.
