Grilling Adventure Sausage Edition

My grilling adventure continues. This time we had a total sausage fest.    One of the tools I picked up this week was a quick-read thermometer. Safety first when grilling!  I’ve noticed that I have not been doing my tin-foil bag of onions on the grill  recently. I’ll have to get back into the habit.  […]
