Christening Bill's New Grill


Bill is mighty proud of his new grill.  It's 3 connected grills:  one for gas, the second for charcoal and the third is a charcoal smoker.


My Grill-Master Hero!


For extra flavor, you can’t beat a charcoal grill, but sometimes we want quick and easy with the gas grill, and the smoker is a must for Bubba’s summer sausage and smoked salmon.

He's strip steak all the way and I’m filet mignon; although, if we come across a great looking sirloin steak at the butcher shop, it’s a go.



Lots of garlic for me!
Yum!


Bill has no grilling secrets; just those many years of watching my dad grill taught him to pay attention and don’t overcook the meat.

It’s pretty straightforward and pretty much my favorite meal:  a grilled steak with a green salad, sautéed mushrooms and the veggie du jour.



Scrumptious!



Shake a little salt on the meat before grilling, and a heavy sprinkling of garlic powder for me.  

Another thing my dad told Bill ~ no steak sauce, ever!


ENJOY!

  2. Mmmm, grilled steak! Mrs KR likes filet, like you. I like strip, like Bill. So we often do a big porterhouse -- best of both worlds! Fun post -- thanks.

    1. Great, Melynda! You have great tasting grilled food too, I bet. Bill really likes it and thinks it's pretty great too, and I do so also! Thanks!

  7. Hurrah for Bill! That looks like one mighty fine looking grill, Pam! I've been contemplating getting a charcoal grill, one of those portable ones, because I do miss the flavor of a good charcoaled burger.

    I'd take any one of those steaks too, minus the steak sauce!!! Have fun with your new grilling meals Pam and thanks for sharing...I hope you share Bill's secret for smoking salmon:)

  9. Dear Pam,
    Fabulous photo of Bill and glad that he is all better..That is a big time grilling system he has there. I really am not a steak person but I can understand the grill thing. I prefer charcoal grilling, it just seems to have much more flavor, but you are correct when time is of value then you need to gas grill. My dad used to use both. He would have loved that one or three that Bill has. Thanks for sharing and I am sure you enjoyed your meal! Have a great night...

    1. Hi Dottie! Thanks, Bill really likes the grill and I'm sure it will be used one way or another on most days this summer. I love meat cooked on the grill. Hope all is well your way! Hugs

  11. Pam, Now that's a fancy grill! I've never smoked meats and living in the woods as we do, a charcoal grill (which was what I had in Chicago) is not a great idea. So its a Weber gas grill hooked up to our big in-ground propane tank. We both go for the ribeye steaks and lately it's been nice thick lamb loin chops from Costco. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

    1. Hi Dave! Yes, a charcoal grill may not be a good thing by you now. You know how short the summer grilling season is here so we really enjoy it. I don't think lamb chops will ever be on any of the 3 of Bill's grill. :-) Have a good day!

  12. Hi Pam, I totally agree with you dad...this is the way to go...a good steak do not need any sauce...what a great way to start Summer...
    Hope you are enjoying your week :)

    1. Thanks, Juliana! Dad just thought that was wrong with good meat. :-) There was never any steak in the house back then, and none in our house now. Take care

  15. Wow, love this set up! I'm still trying to talk my Bill into adding a gas grill. I'm a filet gal, too---now you've made me hungry for some delicious grilled meat!

  16. That is a fine looking grill trio that your husband has, Pam! We have a gas grill because it makes grilling simple but you're so right about the flavor of real charcoal. Those steaks look amazing!

  20. Wow. Now that is a GREAT new toy. Love it. Love that it can do three different things and not take up the entire back deck. What you have there is a great size. Love it.

  21. Mighty nice grill and it seems our taste in steak is the same as well. Nothing quite as good as a filet mignon.

  22. That's quite a setup, Pam! Fun to use and it looks like your husband will be doing some cooking this summer! Love a simple steak and salad dinner!

  24. Dear Pam, I wish Bill and you many happy bbq's with that beautiful grilling set.
    I agree with your Dad. Never use steak tenderizer or steak sauce. The meat should taste good on its own.
    I with you a beautiful week. xo Catherine
