Grill on grill action

There is no finer time then right now to be grilling something. Anything. I’ll even concede that it does not have to be meat. (Though, any good griller should make that a staple.)0527091632

In the past, not everything that I have thrown on the grill has turned out. Namely bananas, eggs, anything frozen, vegetable packets WITHOUT butter, and, a pan of rice.

Among the things that have been delicious suprises have been bacon, a GIANT zucchini stuffed with sausage, and a turkey drumstick.

In honor of the grilling season, I am preparing to name my grill, pictured to the right. It was purchased for a mere $20 at Wal-Mart prior to a Pirates tailgate last year, and so far has been the best investment that an American make.

Jealous? You should be. And if you’re worried about heat distribution, one leg is longer than another. So the gentle tilt of the charcoal grill lends itself to flavoring the meat better. There is scientific research to back this up. I just ate it.
