I used the Mini BGE for the second time tonight. I was going to use it last night for pork chops, but we had one heck of a lightening storm here in Columbia, SC. Tonight, we finally had a clear evening with no rain or lightening. It has been weeks since we've had a day without rain or lightening. I'm fine grilling in the rain, but it's sort of ridiculous (and not so smart ) grilling during a lightening storm. Especially under a metal grilling gazebo like the one I have.
For tonight's cook, my wife prepared her usual blackened chicken rub. We also have a bunch of red and yellow grape tomatoes coming from our garden this year along with a large amount of cucumbers, squash, zucchini and fresh herbs. We used some of the yellow and red grape tomatoes tonight along with a cucumber for our Blackened Chicken Salad.
Used the same pre-lit coals that I used last week for the steak I grilled up. I had the mini going at around a 550-600 deg f dome temp for about 1.5 hours last week, and I only utilized around 1 or 2 coals at the most. This little joker is really, really efficient on fuel!!! I used only the leftover coals from the steak cook tonight, and I still have plenty of leftover coals for a third grilling session. Here is tonight's salad....sometimes the simpler cooks are the better ones. Especially when using home-grown veggies.
