Long Live the Grill



I once saw Alton gill tuna on charcoal starter, and ever since then I have been in love with this rather inexpensive article of tomcookery it is defiantly cooking for one friendly. Today the gurl has gone to work and I am home just coming off shift hungry, so the freezer says BURGERS... my tummy can not disagree. I set up my burner on the back step and after 10-15 min I am ready for hamburgery goodness. What blew my socks off is that the burner melted all the snow within a 10ft radius of it. This isn't really a recipe entry it is more like a foodies ramblings.... I get off work at 8am, the neighbor's still look at me funny when I start BBQ'n and drinking beer at this time of the morning.

"I am very much at home with charcoal. I love Charcoal. I can reach a Zen-like oneness with the coals." -Alton Brown from his book I'm just here for the food.

    I believe Alton described it as "cooking on a jet engine" :D Always wanted to try it, but building regs being what they are, we aren't even alllowed to THINK about having a grill.
