    yuum!

    for those that are watching their weight..i'm trying to get to my hunting weight! grill tuna!

    and just so you know..ANY oven baked fried chicken recipe works on the grill. stack the coals on either side. run the chicken down the middle. pull them when internal temps get to 180 (for dark meat).

    I've got a Charbroil charcoal grill and a new Weber. I love them both.

    The coals are hot and the beer is cold:

    Sometimes I just want to grill the easy way:

    Not stock.
    Grilled some steaks today. Tried a dry rub for the first time, thought I'd share:

    Basic Steak Rub

    1 tablespoon ground black pepper
    1 tablespoon kosher salt
    1 tablespoon parsley flakes
    1 tablespoon paprika
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/2 teaspoon cayenne

    It tasted great, and all the ingredients were in the cupboard. I'm going to try it this fall with charcoal, but grillin was awesome.

    WHAT? they told me I couldn't convert this one because it was one of the cheaper models. Bought it at lowes, those bastards.

    Maybe you got a better one? Do you have a # for the conversion kit?
    Also...did ya buy the rotiserie thingy? Man that looks awesome.

    Any grille can be converted and any gas conversion kit will work. You have to modify he burner orfices by drilling them out a little larger when converting to natural gas which was very simple on our grille.

    Good DIY article: http://www.ehow.com/how_2188775_convert-propane-bbq-natural-gas.html

    I wonder why the booklet at lowes said mine couldn't be converted. You know the little booklet that showed all the grills?. Mine didnt have a check by it. The natural gas pipe runs into my house directly underneath my grill.
    Thx for the read!!

    Here's a good way to make Corn on the Cob:

    What you need:
    Corn on the cob
    Unsalted butter, 1 tablespoon per ear of corn
    Rock salt, or sea salt
    Fresh pepper

    Directions:
    Dehusk and wash the corn
    place the ears on direct heat
    Turn every couple of minutes to ensure even cooking
    Once the corn begins to blacken slightly remove the ears from heat
    Evenly Coat the corn with the butter, Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and serve.
    Take about ten minutes

    I know this is an easy recipe but corn is delicious this way, and I get compliments all the time!

    We have the same exact grille...It's not checked in the book as gas convertible because the grille really isn't supposed be converted. They don't expect the typical buyer to take out the burners and modify them.
