Rib eye! pink inside but not bloody . . . ummm, um! Especially over hickory briquets!

Once had an outside cat that wanted constant attention when we were outdoors. Silly thing jumped up on the grill just as I brought out the burgers to cook. His feet no more than touched the grill than he jumped another three feet straight up! Scared the bejeesus outa me, took him to the vet, had to put ointment on his pads for a week. The idjit just licked the ointment off but recovered fine. Never jumped on the grill after that though . . .

Ditto on the rib eye - best steak there is! And Yes - medium to medium well!

Don't discount the tenderloins from Costco when you get back stateside, vertigo. They're about 2-1/2 inches thick and typically range in price from $8.99-$10.99 per pound. I start out with a hotter fire to sear them then reduce the heat to finish off as Roe describes (although I may like them just a bit rarer). They also have some absolutely wonderful rib-eye roasts that grill up nicely.

Boneless ribs and thick pork chops are also great off the grill as are veggies such as ears of corn or skewered squash, onions, zucchini, etc.

Fillet mignon. Medium rare. Serve with with Texas toast and a great salad. No potato. Great bottle of wine, like Marietta Old Vine Red, batch whatever they've got out.

I have some beach front property in western KS that I've been trying to sell. They tell me it is crawling with octopi. Haven't actually seen it but still have the brochures the nice sales lady gave me. If you are interested that is . . . ;-)

After cooking the meat I like to grill the buns.

You smoke a whole hog, not grill it. Or a big pit in the ground.

Husks? Reminds me, one time the Mrs left me a note to take the scalloped potatoes out of the fridge and into the oven when I got home. She didn't tell me to take the Saran Wrap off first though . . . and she still uses that piece of Corning Ware, melted plastic on the edges and all. Oh my, those were some stinkin' taters!

OMGds ribeyes. I used to get mine from a little corner store that doesn't exist any more in Topeka. I bought them about twice a year, all I could afford. One time when I was in there buying them they told me they had just sold some of the same batch to the governor. Now that's eatin' high on the...side of beef. :D

I do like grilled veggies too. Corn on the cob is good. Take those little yellow squash and little tender zukes and cut them in half lengthwise and slap 'em on there too. And some onions.

Herman's at 29th and Fairlawn used to be a pretty good butcher shop. They have some of the best jerky I've ever tasted, as well.

There also used to be a pretty good butcher at Pauline-just south of Topeka out by Forbes Field.

Ribeye for sure, nice and pink and juicy, but not mooing.

Lately, however, I've been enjoying those Anaheim peppers from Hyvee. You can get them filled with imitation crabmeat sometimes, or usually italian sausage and cheese and they come wrapped in bacon. Grill a couple of those, plus some asparagus or stuffed mushrooms for a quick dinner that won't break the bank.

Hubby tried tofu once, yeah, didn't go over too well. He has done pizza and cornbread in a cast iron skillet. If you have extra room, throw on some bacon to keep in the fridge for breakfast or BLT's. Otherwise, spareribs are a favorite here.

Hubby would always smoke a turkey for Thanksgiving. One year his brother was joining us with his new girlfriend. When he brought the turkey in from the smoker the look on her face was priceless. "But it's all black" was all she could say. She was sure he had burnt it to a crisp.

Try polenta (AKA "corn mush"). I put some on the grill one time as an experiment and it was pretty amazing.

LadyJ 4 years ago

I like fried cornmeal mush, I will have to try this.

"Of course you can not always trust what people say about their hunting grounds..."

Tell me about it. My own best deer hunting spot can have herds of 12 to 20 right up to opening day. After that all the shots you hear sound miles away . . .
