It’s time to kick back, relax and enjoy the aromas of fresh smoked meat as we sail towards summer. Not sure what to smoke? Try Down & Dizzy Pork Shoulder or Smoked Spanish Chicken. Now that Spring is in the air, it's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Grilled Grits

Ingredients

• pkg grits or polenta, NOT instant
• 1-2 Clove garlic, minced
• 1 tsp Mrs. Dog"s or your favorite hot sauce
• 1 tsp seasoned salt, your choice
• ½ tsp fresh ground pepper
• ½-¾ Cup grated cheese. Gruyere or cheddar. Again, your choice
• Can chicken broth + water
• 1/3 Cup butter, melted

Instructions

Butter a non-stick round pan. I use a cake pan or a straight-sided skillet.

Grits vary from brand to brand. Cook enough for 4 servings using chicken broth and/or water in the amount specified, plus the garlic, hot sauce, salt and pepper. When the grits are cooked, stir in the cheese until it's melted. Adjust seasonings to taste.
Spread mixture evenly into greased pan and chill until firm. This can be done up to 2 days in advance.
When grill is ready, cut grits into wedges and put on a plate. Brush with melted butter and grill until browned, about 3-4 minutes per side, brushing with remaining butter while they cook.

Notes

If I'm in a hurry I will float the cake pan in ice water to set up the grits.
