dh does all the grilling. Always has. We like cooking
with gas. We have a decent grill that works well for
us, and a nice place for it on the deck.

Now that said, in Hawaii we enjoyed using charcoal just
fine. It was great taking a bag of charcoal and a
lighter to the beach or going places with a little
portable hibachi.

Hi K_roni!

I think we need to have a cookout at your place! Hope you haven't been hit too hard by the rain/tornadoes out that way.

I wanted to share that we recently purchased a grill about a month ago and have been using it a lot. Due to the restrictions in the building where we live, we ended up getting an electric grill. It actually looks like a charcoal grill but it's electric. It sounds odd and of course doesn't replicate the open flame goodness of a charcoal or gas grill, but does a pretty good job for us. We've been doing burgers, kabobs and steaks as well as some chicken and chops. For Easter we even grilled some pineapple!

Looking forward to hearing more about your adventures at the grill!

Hi Caryn! I have the one electric grill, that I bought after I caught my yard on fire lighting the charcoal grill without a PATIO under it! I'm actually pretty happy with the way it performs! As a water smoker, it runs too hot, but as a grill, I have been delighted (no pun intended)!

Pop a drop of liquid smoke into your marinades and basting sauces, to get that smoky "real fire" taste. Liquid smoke tastes salty, but look at the label--NO SODIUM! YAY! So I use it to cut back on salt in many dishes.

Thanks for the tip -- I've never used liquid smoke before, so I will have to make that my mission for the summer. I love trying out different marinades, so that should liven things up a bit. (Not as much as setting your yard on fire, though LOL!)

Be careful with the liquid smoke!
