    Anybody grilling tonight ? I'm a huge fan of grilling. Gas, charcoal, smoking or pellets. I'm always doing something every weekend no matter what the weather is. Anybody else in the same boat ? Please use this thread to post methods, tips and or recipes. I'm currently using my pellet grill to slow cook some wild rice and traditional stuffing stuffed pork chops. Smoked with hickory pellets for 40 minutes. I rub them with olive oil and let the hickory work its magic. Any and all comments welcome. Like always, pics are highly encouraged. Mine coming up.

    I have a Primo grill (hardwood charcoal), have not used it in a while, miss it but do make use of my cast iron skillets on the stove for now.
    I do have wood burning fireplace and stove heater.

    My picture would not show. :squint:

    Cast iron is the way to go. I've had the same true cast iron grill slats for almost 15 years now. I take them from grill to grill. People don't realize the beauty of seasoned steel.

    OP, we use to have a guy on here named BLUESNCUES. probably not the right spelling.
    he would always post up amazing pics and tell us what he was cooking.
    im sure several of us tried to eat our lap tops during his threads. yes the pics were
    always that good. look him up. im sure somebody will correct my spelling of his name.
    he hasnt been around for a while. just kinda disappeared on us.
    he was a cool cat man. i miss reading any of his posts honestly. i pray the man is ok
    wherever he may be. he was a highly valued member of the MF forum.

    cast iron is the cats ass. nothing cooks like it. i did however just read on
    where we shouldnt use cast iron but maybe once a month due to it raising
    the iron content in our body to a dangerously high number.
    sucks too cause thats what i grew up on.

    No oven in this houshold. Slow cooker for stews etc. Webber Q for roasts, fish & pizza .... steaks, snags, chips,tomatoes 'n' onions get chucked on a standard ol' gas bbq. Funny thing no ones fat go figure. Great tip is the cheapest chunks of beef cook the best low in the weber Q over 1.5 - 2.5 hours depending on weight. A full scotch is to die for but a full rump goes like rubber so that gets cut into steaks here and cooked quick on the bbq...... Fuck I've made myself hungry.

    Is it the same study that shows we should or should not eat eggs ? I mean it seems every year there is a study showing that we should or should not eat eggs. Eggs ? Really ? Who is putting money up for these studies ? Vegans ? Peta ? Vegetarians ? I don't know or do I care. We have K9's for a reason and I will embrace that all day long. Grill on !!!!!

    Bacon wrapped asparagus slow cooked in the bacon fat over hickory smoke. This is my side dish. Please be inspired.

    Sorry apparently the file is to big. Use your imagination please.

    I will never cease to use my cast iron cookware, studies be damned. It's tried and true, and I don't ever remember hearing about my great grandparents or anyone else overdosing on iron because of cast iron cookware.

    I have read some things about cheap cast from China not being great though. Can't remember exactly what it was, atm

    Don't pee in the shower after you eat that! Will smell foul/10!

    I love asparagus. And bacon too.

    Keep on grillin........those fancy sear marks that burn on the meats are carcinogenic. It's been linked to cancer. None for me!

    Cast iron is my thing. :cheers:
