The Grill has spoken.
As many of you may understand, my husband is a student of the School of Weber. We have a gas grill that plugs directly into our gas line at the house (yes, he outfitted the house with a special grill gas nozzle.) Needless to say, my DH sits at the window like a forlorn cat during the winter desperately looking for the first sign of grilling season.
But at the School of Weber, I think my husband is the kid that gets sent to the principal’s office all the time. Last night he decided that even though we had no food we’d traditionally grill he wanted to grill anyway. *sigh* Of course.
So here are some lessons learned from my husband’s evening of Experimental Grilling 101. (I’m giving him an incomplete that he’ll have a month to make up.)
OK to grill:
– Garden burgers
– Stale french bread with olive oil. That was a winner hon and the reason I didn’t fail you.
NOT OK to grill:
– Frozen taquitos from Costco. Did you have to do the WHOLE bag?
– Soy chicken nuggets. Ummm…they’re NUGGETS! THAT’S why they keep falling through the grates.
– 3-year-old frozen halibut you dug up from the back of the freezer.
– Pound cake. You could have at least cleaned the gunky fish residue off the grill first.
And “the dog likes it” is NOT the level of culinary acceptability we strive for. So my dear husband, this is definitely a “See me after class” situation. And by the way, putting Tabasco in EVERYTHING isn’t getting you any extra credit.
