Husband loves to grill. Until last Thursday he had three grills. One is a classic Weber. One is a Kamado ceramic grill. The third was a large Charbroil that he has had for about 30 years. He discovered last week that the bottom was rusting out, and that it needed to be replaced. All the grills are fueled with wood or charcoal. He dislikes gas grills, and I would be afraid for him using such volatile fuel. He uses each grill for different grilling purposes. I don’t even try to understand.
The Charbroil was too heavy for us to get in the back of his pickup to take to the landfill, so he got a local moving company to take it away. It was a sad day. He has an emotional attachment to his grills. He had a new grill in mind, and in about 11 weeks, a fancy, schmancy, Yoder Cheyenne griller/smoker will arrive from Kansas City. It will arrive all assembled. It looks like a train engine, weighs 315 pounds, and has a separate compartment on one end for the fuel. It has a chimney. He got all the bells and whistles on it. Happy Father’s Day!
I like grilled food, and he is expanding his repertoire to make his grills do smoking and tandoori cooking. We aren’t big picnic people and we don’t eat outside much but sometimes food just tastes better out of doors.
What do you like to take on a picnic? What do you like to grill? Got any good barbecue recipes or stories?
