When our old gas grilled finally died, Bandwidth went shopping. Armed with his iPhone and Consumer Reports, he went from store to store, admiring fancy stainless models, each one offering culinary whistles and bells. He came home with an inexpensive, portable grill. It's been a while since we've used charcoal, and we'd forgotten how it infuses meat with a rich, inimitable smoky flavor.
First, Bandy grilled hamburgers (and made homemade buns).
Then he tried Grilled Cedar-Planked Salmon, which was, hand's down, the best salmon we've ever eaten.
Next, he cooked Surf 'n Turf.
Dr. Will and I are watching calories, so we shared a steak.
Bandy seasoned the steaks and seafood with sea salt, freshly ground pepper, and Homemade Worcestershire Sauce. He brushed a small amount of olive oil over the shrimp, too.
What's your preference--grilling with gas or charcoal?
