Beyond Hot Dogs
Although Yes! You Can Grill includes the basics – those details that old timers may think everyone is born knowing, I do go beyond wieners and basic burgers. If you’ve thought about grilling seafood but got cold feet or if you’ve never mastered potatoes on the grill, you’ll find recipes to expand your horizons.
My main focus is on grilling, but I cover all types of outdoor cooking. The boys and I cook over campfires, use Dutch Ovens, smoke up ribs, and deep fry turkeys. This has been good for bonding and for making cooking cool in a household with only one female.
If it’s gear you need, then I probably own it or have used it. When things start going south (meaning – not going so well), I’m often handed the apron and tongs and designated the driver of the grill. That’s fine. I really don’t know what to do with myself if I don’t have an assignment.
I’m also an avid reader, and yes I do read cookbooks. Some of them are fabulous and some of them stink. Check out my outdoor cookbook reviews, so you don’t end up buying cookbooks that serve better as doorstops than grilling manuals.
