Summer!!!

Posted on: June 6, 2010

Does anything say summer more than food cooked on a charcoal grill?  I don’t think so.   We have used a gas grill for years just because of convenience.  Something lately has made me want to smell the fire and taste that the food was actually grilled.

We bought a small Weber grill so we could do just that.  And ya know, it was wonderful.  Watching the coals change from black to grey with the fire burning red-hot in them.  I was so excited.

I figured we would take it quick and easy and make hamburgers for our first adventure in charcoal.  What could be better? 

And they were.  Grilled perfectly medium rare.  You know the flavor that comes from the grill and I know you love it as much as I do. 

It is a sign of summer.  Sitting outside with a beer or margarita, enjoying the company of family and friends and eating food with flavor that you can’t reproduce in the kitchen. 

Luckily I live in a place where summer stretches out for a long, long time.  Unfortunately though some of the time when it is hovering around 100 degrees and the humidity is sky-high it is unbearable to be out in it.  But we make do.  A few friends, cocktails and a dip in the pool can make it good again.

And as for the finished burgers…..(sorry for the picture quality, the plate was moving so fast that I had to snap it fast.
