In the middle of winter this is a fond memory and portent of things to come albeit in a few more months time. Grilled pork and salmon. It even looks juicy and inviting on the grill. It was moist and tender. After I initially seared the meat, I had an indirect flame. I’m learning not to flame everything. It’s never too late to learn. I used tzatziki sauce over everything. The pork was moist. That’s not easy. I hope I can do it again.


It’s BBQ time

Most of my posts are un-timed. Untimely? That is to say: there is no specific time frame involved. However, sometimes it makes sense to post immediately. This one involves the recent Memorial Day weekend. It’s the first grilled dog of the summer. It’s the first BBQ. I was just a bit early by a few days. Meanwhile, it’s always different. …except for the hot dog. There was a list of brands recommended by the NY Times. Ummm? A dog is … basically a dog. It’s the condiments and the char – coaled flavor that overwhelms. I’ve had them all… and it only really matters that they are beef. And this year the emphasis is on vegetables. You have limited options if you are cooking gluten free, corn free, and, vegetarian. Yeah, there are sausages on the grill. But that is because I have no restriction. It grilled up good on a perfect spring evening as the sun was gently setting. Good? You bet! And today? It’s cloudy and misty and foggy and a no good very bad day. So, this post makes me smile. Maybe tomorrow we grill again?!
