I was trying to think of what to stuff in this mini bacon-wrapped meatloaf, and then my husband brought in a bunch of poblanos from the garden. Usually I stuff the poblanos with meat and cheese, so it was just … Continue reading Inside-Out Stuffed Poblanos. Smoked. With Bacon.
Especially when you have to run back and forth to the kitchen to tend to things on the stove—note to self: move the patio door—you can help yourself by having all your grilling items available and organized. I used to … Continue reading Organizing Your Grilling Stuff
Here’s a quick and versatile way to grill a pork tenderloin. I’m marinating mine in teriyaki sauce—not the sticky stuff in a bottle—and then serving it with brown rice noodles, but you could marinate it or baste it with any … Continue reading Grilled Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin
I christened the Weber® Wok I got at the end of last season’s grilling period with beef and broccoli. Good choice. It was really quick and really good. In hindsight, I would make one significant change to how I cooked … Continue reading Beef and Broccoli on the Grill

For some reason, my husband expanded the garden to include jalapeño peppers this year, so I’ve been thinking of different ways to use them. Sometimes the raw ones are just a little too zippy for my old stomach, but I … Continue reading Smoking Some Garden Jalapeños
. . . if you use a griddle, of course. I hope you haven’t tried it right on the grill grate, but I’d like to see the pictures if you did. 😉 It means my husband won’t be getting his … Continue reading You Can Smash Burgers on the Grill . . .

Finishing up the Carne Asada I started this morning with the previous post’s salsa marinade, I moved to the grill just before dinner. My almost-1 lb of skirt steak made four small pieces, which I grilled over very hot direct … Continue reading Carne Asada with Skirt Steak, Pt. 2
