On a light and quick note, we 'broke in' our new gas grill today. Since our baby Son came down for a visit, we wanted to make something special and that he loves. Our dinner fare consisted of juicy rib eye steaks cooked over the fire along with smoked sausage, cheddar topped baked potatoes, and a steaming bowl of 'frijoles borrachos' or drunken beans. Freshly made hot sauce and a stack of home made flour tortillas completed the meal fixings. I have to credit my mate for his grilling the steaks to perfection! Gas grills really are convenient, no smoke inside the house, thank you very much. However, I have to say, mesquite firewood is the best for really bringing out the flavors of any meat. I do think though, that the Mate prefers the ease of the gas grill. There is a preparation and planning factor involved with using firewood, as well as an allowance for time to let the wood burn to just the right temperature. Not so with the grill. You just fire it up, and you're good to go after a few minutes. Very nice!
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. ~Philippians 4:8~
