Carrie C. writes in asking for a good side table as a grill companion. The boys: Weber Side tables are just ok. Joe recommends balancing aesthetics and usability.
Kyomi writes in asking for dessert recipes. Try shortcake or poundcake. Grilled strawberries or pineapple and glaze with some maple syrup or honey and serve with ice cream. Look for savory and sweet combinations for grilling deserts and err to the side of savory.
Grilled Bacon Chocolate Chip cookies. Enough said. Joe? Where is the recipe for this?
