I'm pretty eggcited!  I got to use my new grid extender.  I was able to cook 21 chicken legs and some corn all at the same time.  So dinner was BBQ Chicken legs with some grilled corn salad.  YUM!

    Nice cook @fiver29, that grilled corn salad looks awesome.

    Cilantro, cherry tomatoes, and avocado?

    @Black_Badger  I was on my cell phone last night.  Here's the recipe for the grilled corn salad:

    4 ears sweet corn
    kosher salt
    1 anchovy, minced (I omitted this ingredient)
    1 garlic clove, minced
    1 jalapeno, seeds and ribs removed, minced
    grated zest and juice of 3 limes
    1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    1 ripe Hass avocado, peeled and diced
    1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
    6 scallions, white and green parts, thinly sliced
    3/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

    1.  Soak the ears of corn in their husks overnight in salt water.  (I omitted this step.  I didn't think it was necessary as my corn husks were very wet as is.)
    2.  Heat the Egg to 350
    3.  Put the corn on the grill using an indirect setup and close the lid.  Flip after 15 minutes.  Cook another 15 minutes and remove corn using grill mitts.  
    4.  While corn is grilling, in a large bowl, combine the anchovy, garlic, jalapeno, and a large pinch of salt.  Add the lime zest and juice and whisk in the olive oil.  Add the avocado, tomatoes, scallions, and cilantro and gently toss.
    5.  Let the corn cool until you can handle it.  Peel off and discard the husks.  Working over the salad bowl to catch any juices, cut the kernels from the cobs and then add them to the salad.  Toss to combine and taste and adjust for seasoning.  You many need to add some additional salt.
