Two weekends in a row. Not the kind of trend I was looking for.
It was our first BBQ of the year. I was obviously out of practice. I lit the coals with the chimney starter, and once they were ready I spread them evenly in the grill and put some new coals on top. I didn’t want them burning out before the chicken legs were cooked. What happened next was predictable. I put the burgers on first, while the new coals were still warming up. Once they were cooked I started with the drumsticks and wings. By that time the new coals were burning and the grill was about 5,000 degrees. I did my best, but they were still horribly burned on the outside and, you guessed it, raw on the inside.
We finished it up in the microwave, and Karen assures me it’s good once you take the skin off. Whatever.
