I love grilling season! Our 10-year old, cheap grill may be a little rusty, but it’s still kicking, and I’m always excited when it’s time to fire it up! Since it’s so old, hubby just uses whatever temp he needs to in order to get an even flame all the way across!
Burgers, hot dogs, maybe some kebabs, sure…but how about asparagus? It’s amazing grilled! My in-laws gave my husband the little grilling tray you see above, but he’s grilled it without too. He just used to lose a few spears! The tray makes it really easy to do other veggies too, like yellow squash and zucchini.
Our favorite way to eat corn on the cob is grilled!
My hubby removes about half of the husk, along with any silks that are sticking out. Otherwise they burn, and they stink when they do!
Grill until the husk begins to char, then turn them over & finish.
Remove from the grill & then let it cool. It will be extremely hot! When you can handle them, peel back and remove the husks, then enjoy!
Since my husband went to Italy on business 2 summers ago, he’s been obsessed with the perfect, authentic pizza, and he’s made some good ones. My favorite is when he cooks them on the grill. He preheats the grill at the highest temp, and he has some bricks on the top shelf to help distribute the heat evenly. He cuts the temp back to medium once he puts the pizza on.
The hardest part (other than waiting) is sliding it onto the grill. As soon as the dough is “set” enough to handle, he starts to rotate it every few seconds, until it is evenly crispy.
Then just remove it to a plate, let it cool, and enjoy!
