Labor Day: Indoor GRILLING About Outdoor COOKING

If you can believe everything you read on the Internet (and who doesn’t -after all, it was invented by Al Gore)… my brief web-scan indicates LABOR DAY is the third most popular day for outdoor grilling. Is there such thing as indoor grilling? Sure. I think that is when someone is asking you a LOT of questions. So, here goes – your indoor grilling about outdoor cooking.
* Who is grilling today?
* Smoking or grilling?
* If grilling, is it gas or charcoal?
Now, for the menu. What’s dripping into your fire?
* Steak – ribeye or t-bone? Discounting nutrition and economy, my preference is the more expensive, fat, juicy ribeye. But, I would not decline an invitation to a t-bone feast 😉
* Dawgs – Will they be the traditional frankfurter or brats?
* Burgers – The only option here (beyond rare, medium, or well done), is: cheese or no cheese. Don’t EVEN mention veggie or soy burgers. If you don’t eat real meat, get off this page right now. Go read some “Save the Planet – Eat Green” kind of blog! Not really. I respect your lifestyle choice to leave more meat for the rest of us omnivores. Besides, outdoor grill-fests typically include plenty of sides that can be enjoyed by the vegan in-laws. There will likely be: Baked beans, potato salad, and corn-on-the-cob.
Last question: Is anybody else gettin’ hungry?
I just realized my inadvertent omission of: Pork chops, chicken or fish for backyard feasts.

Okay, there they are – the only other grilling options I will offer at this time.

I don’t want to go getting all exotic and regional by including things like: Venison, buffalo, rattlesnake, armadillo, alligator… No way, that’s just wrong. This is about Labor Day – not “Weird Things A Guy Might Cook If You Give Him Enough ‘Adult Beverages’ and An Open Fire.”
