The Huffington Post just featured a video from CHOW on how to spiral cut your hot dogs. This is a great, fun tip especially when you’re grilling with kids. The same idea works for brats, however, I’m not sure I’d recommend it as a brat’s or sausage’s casing holds in a lot of vital juices.
In case ya missed it, we made our television debut this past weekend when our local ABC affiliate contacted us for some food safety tips. Cool grilling tricks would have been a lot more fun, but hey, ya gotta be safe too! Hopefully we’ll get another opportunity to show off our skills.
Recently, I’ve been experimenting with planking and this recipe is one I knew couldn’t fail. You just can’t go wrong with potatoes, herbs and the fantastic aroma of cedar gently lingering in the background. I used baby klondike potatoes for this, but baby reds or fingerlings like a Russian Banana would also work great. I don’t like them to get too big, because I want to get as many on a plank as possible and I want that cedar to fully penetrate the flesh.
Grill someone a fish and they will eat for day; teach them how to grill fish and they can eat for a lifetime (as long as they can fish, or have a supermarket nearby). Although that isn’t exactly how that proverb goes it does make a great point; I would much rather teach a technique than a recipe.
