Grillin' Fool

When summer hits, it's time to fire up the grill and I don't know about your household but I am the grill master of my homestead.  Our grill is tiny because we have a tiny space to put it but it works for it just being the two of us.  I won't lie that I dream of a HUGE grill and/or outdoor kitchen but I doubt that will ever happen.  Sigh.  But these are some of my current faves that I use all the time.

This grilling basket is one of my favorites for Brussels sprouts, zucchini and all kinds of veggies on the grill.

This smoker box is also a hit with me because of the flavor it infuses into everything from turkey burgers to salmon to corn on the cob.

I just throw in some apple wood chips and once it starts smoking, it's time to whip out the gas mask because it always seems to be blowing directly into my face.

My newest toy I got last week was this Charcoal Companion Grill Station....

I was tired of using plates for the raw stuff then having to grab a new one for the cooked stuff and dragging out BBQ sauce and silicone brushes and all that jazz.  This lets me put the raw stuff in its own bin then I can stack the cooked bin on top once the raw is empty.  It's worked really well so far and I highly recommend it if you don't have a ton of prep/counter space by your grill.

I'll continue enjoying my gadgets and little grill space even if my brain wishes I were grilling in this space:


Who is the griller in your house?  Do you have any fun grilling must-haves?

  1. You grill some amazing things with that little grill. If you want that big outdoor kitchen we can turn the entire patio into one for all I care as long as you keep up that grillin'!

  2. I can hold my own on the grill, but my boyfriend is the grill master. He has been appointed the designated cook for everyone when we are at his father's cabin, where almost everything is cooked on the grill. Everyone is amazed at the quantity and quality of the food he can churn out on a $150 propane grill from Walmart. His only must-haves are a quality flipper and non-stick grill mats/sheets. They give you the grill marks you want to see but keep the grease from flashing up and burning what every you are cooking.

  3. I love grilled food. I'm too lazy to clean up charcoal so we use gas. Love grilled veggies. I didn't grill much at all last year due to a major yard project but hope to get back in the habit this summer. Come to think of it, I have a bag of sweet potatoes that I should roast up before they go bad. It's too hot to cook them in the kitchen.

  4. I love that grilling kitchen! We grill all year long (yep, the weirdos out on the deck in the dead of winter)and the hubs does the grilling. I make some awesome cheesy bread on the grill, but he does everything else. We're having grilled steaks tonight and tomorrow it's grilled chicken drumsticks. When we do pork chops I make a bruschetta to go on top that is just phenomenal. I think we've gone through four grills in all the time we've lived here. This latest one is big, but it's very simple and we didn't get any of the doodads because we don't use them (lesson learned from the previous two).
