Here is the method my wife used for cooking up the octopus. She used two small octopie, we were actually looking for babies but couldn’t find them.[p]Step 1 prepared the following marinade –
¾ - cup of olive oil
1 – Tbsp Garlic Powder
1 – Tbsp Cracked Black Peppercorn
1 – Tbsp Salt
2 – Tbsp Vinegar[p]Marinated the two octopie in the fridge in the marinade above between 4-5 hours.[p]Step 2 - place on the grill at a temp of about 450° (we will probably use try a higher temp 500° next time) for about 7 minutes per side.[p]She also prepared a sauce for dipping which was Vinegar with a touch of salt and garlic powder.[p]If you try it let me know what you think.[p]Keep em smokin,

    Nature Boy,[p]Once you've tried it give me a shout back, with your thoughts. Wife is talking about doing them again this weekend.[p]Of course we are also talking about pork chops, salmon and pork tenderloin. And I was having a rib premonition today![p]Don't think we be able to do all of them this weekend, but whatever we end up with it'll be good.[p]Have a good one yourself.[p]Jethro

    Jethro, How do you prep the octo? I'd love it, but not so sure my wife would... She's a good woman, but a trifle picky
