Chicken revisited

15 07 2008

A dad in a hurry + a grill that’s too hot + too much chicken on the grill at one time = Mark Ruins Dinner.

Should I have known better?  Yeah, probably.  Here’s a picture of the chicken after it had been on the grill for 5 minutes:

Impressive, huh?  Karen knows that it’s bad news when I’m cooking dinner and all of a sudden I run upstairs to get my camera.  After I took the picture I moved the smaller pieces to the gas grill where the veggies were cooking.

You know, that Weber cookbook Karen got me last year has a reference at the beginning that tells you how many briquets are needed for low, medium, and high heat.  I should probably glance through that.

Ha! I love the pictures! I just had some friend over for some horrible BLT’s with soggy bacon and tasteless tomatoes. Total disaster. We are kindred spirits.

You mean as opposed to simply pouring a bunch of briquettes into the grill until it’s full? Yes, you might want to do that.

Who knew that was how you controlled the heat? I love my gas grill.

You wanted a new picture for your banner right? 🙂

It was good chicken, though, if a little bit crunchy.

O.K. this does not give me confidence in having you guys over to coach and encourage me in grill usage (of course mine is gas). But since I am so grillaphobic (its past mid July and the cover has yet to come off grill once) any grilling results would be a step up. (Why am I grillaphobic ? – many reasons but in my one and only solo use last year I managed to melt off one of the grill control handles – it was ugly)
