It has been so hot in our home over the last few days that I really could not take the heat in the kitchen. So just as the saying goes, I got out of the kitchen.
Of course there are still hungry people in our home who require food so what to do? Go to Costco and buy an outdoor grill!
The first meal I cooked on the grill was simple one – grilled spicy Italian sausages. Before I started grilling the sausages (or any meal I am grilling), a tip a grill-king gave me was to slice up an onion, wrap it tightly in tin foil and put it on the back of the grill before doing anything else.
The spicy Italian sausages turned out to be beautiful! Bursting with flavour and juices. The heat of the grill made the sausage casings crisp to bite through. Perfection.
The next grilling adventure was with corn on the cob on the grill. Before grilling corn on the cob I carefully peeled back the husks (the outer green part) one leaf at a time. Then I pulled out as many of the tassles as I could.Then I closed the husks back over the corn and plunked it on the grill.
Every couple of minutes I would open the grill lid and use tongs to turn the corn cobs. I just monitored to make sure they were not getting burned on one side or the other. There was some charring of the husks but I kept turning them to prevent too much burning.
After about 20 minutes I peeled the husks back and put the cobs of corn back on the grill to let the corn get grill marks on them.
Remember the tin foil package of onions? When I opened them up they were an oozy-gooey caramelized onion pack of goodness.
I promise, there will be more grilling adventures in the coming weeks!! Maybe even a video!!
