bay leaves

I got a really large bag of bay leaves from Penzey's on my last order. A bigger bag than I expected. To use'em up, I've started putting a few on hot fires to see what the effect would be. Tonight I tried it on some hamburgers. I got the grill up to 600* - just cause I like my burgers with a nice crust. I also put a little mustard and some flavored salts on the burgers before grilling them. After I put the burgers on and before I closed the dome I popped 5 or 6 bay leaves in the fire. When I turned the burgers - four minutes later I put another 3 or 4 leaves in there. Just before the dwell I threw another one or two on the coals. [p]Nice taste. Great burgers.

    char buddy ,[p]If you have a bunch, grind some up and add the powder to different rubs and spice mixes. I can really add a nice touch, but go lightly with the can easily overpower.[p]Zip[p]Oh yeah...The powder is good in soups, sauces, and stews because you don't have to rememeber to remove it.
