    I Live Out Here In The Heartland
    Dead Center On The East Edge Of The Plains
    Hot Out Here In August
    So We Keep The Grill Out Side The Back Door
    We Do Much Of Our Casual Daily Cooking Out-Side
    So We Don't Heat The A/C In The House

    Today, I've Got
    Asparagus, Ears Of Corn, And A 2# Ohsee Ham
    A Thirty Minute Cook At 250 Degrees

    Flip Your Chimney Up-Side Down
    (Folks, You Gotta Have A Chimney)
    Load Your Charcoal On The Bottom
    Pack Your Paper Up The Long End... Light The Paper

    This Way You're Not Over-Using Your Fuel

    Now On The Corn, I Peel Back The Husk
    Remove The Silk And Roll The Husk Back Over The Ears
    I Don't Get That Coveted Char Caramelization
    But My Kernels Don't Shrivel And Dry Either
    They Remain Great For Left-Overs
    The Asparagus, Gets Olive Oil And Garlic Powder
    I Put Those Straight On The Grating
    And Roll Back And Forth With My Hand

    The Ham Is Pre-Cooked
    So I Only Need To Heat To The Center
    And Caramelize The Sauce

    When I First Saw Food Service Wearing Gloves
    I Thought It Was For Food Sanitation
    Maybe...
    But For Me It's To Keep All That Crap Off My Hands
    Never Cook With-Out Exam Gloves Anymore

    Snag A Pocket Of 'Em At The Doctor's And Hospital
    It's All Over-Head And They Throw The Stuff Away
    The Nurses Gave Me Everything In My Room Saying:
    "House Keeping Is Going To Throw Everything Away Anyhow..."
    So Be It

    Get Yourself Some Gloves

    A Trick I Learned On Vacation And Fishing Trips
    Clean-Up An Clear As You Go
    It's Great To Sit Down To Eat
    And Not Have Dishes To Do Afterward

    Bon Appetit...

    Here's a quick tip..
    Dont call grilling BBQing.
    Two totally different methods of cooking.

    The Ham IS Being BBQ'd
    And They Are All Being Alder Wood Smoked
    ...On The Grill


    And Now I'm Eye-Balling Those Peaches & Plums
    'Grilled Peaches, Plums With Honey....Umm...'

    Just because you put a few pieces of wood on your fire doesnt mean you're BBQing.
    And by the way,smoking a ham is not the same as BBQing.

    Is That All You Want To Discuss ??
    Fine
    Start Your Own Thread And Pat Yourself On The Back
    With Another Know-All Nobody
    With A 'Who Cares' Nothing To Say
    ...Like You

    Meanwhile:
    I'll Be Enjoying Paper Thin BBQ Ham
    Piled High On My Toasted Bread
    BBQ Ham Sammich
    With Corn On The Cob, Garlic Asperagus
    And Finished With Charred Fruit And Honey
    On Top Of Some Vanilla Ice Milk I Whipped Up

    Now Go Ahead
    Run Along Start Your Own Thread
    And Maybe An Other Butt-Hole Will Drop By
    That Appreciates Endless Hashing Of An Unimportant Turn Of Phrase

    If One Comes By Here
    I'll Even Link 'Em To Your Thread

    Words have meanings....
    Especially when one is claiming to know what they're talking about.

    I'm not trying to dog you,just educate you.

    I've been BBQing for over thirty years some of those years competitively.

    I quit eating meat again recently.

    That asparagus sounds good, though

    I'm Not Vegan By Any Means
    Not Because Of Dietary Restrictions (I Do Have)
    I Just Don't Make Animal Protein The Star Of My Plate Anymore
    I Just Don't Care For Large Portions Of Heavy Foods

    ...I'll Scoop All The Vegetables & Gravy Out Of A Pot Roast
    Dump It On A Pile Of Mashed Potatoes

    I Did The Same Thing With Artichokes
    That I Do With Asparagus Back On The Fourth
    ....Along With The Brisket I BBQ'd

    Well, my better half is a vegan, so that pretty much makes me one, too. I only eat it if I'm doing a mass gain. She doesn't give me a hard time about it.

    That pot roast gravy and potatoes will stick to your ribs, though. Been there and done that about a gazilion times.
