Chicken Yakitori and Yaki Onigiri

edited September 2013 in EggHead Forum
This was my first cook from The Japanese Grill and it was awesome. I learned a few things that I'll change up next time, but still very happy with results.

My swing grate was showing some rust so I cleaned it and used for this cook. I needed a middle level and next time will use my AR at the felt line. The foil covered fire bricks recommended by the book worked okay, but a few wood skewers burned so I think the extra height will help.

I also need some practice forming the Yaki Onigiri rice...they held together but I never could get the traditional triangular shape.

I was really impressed with the Yaki Onigiri, which I had never eaten before.

Paired with a Washington Riesling which worked well on a hot summer day.

    Looks interesting. I like most Asian flavor a so I am sure it was a hit.

    Very nice. I have to get into Jap cooking. I see they have a kindle edition, makes me want to try it. Any comments on the book?

    Thanks @caliking, I enjoy the variety and have been learning a lot. @Aviator this was my first cook from the book, but I see a bunch of recipes I hope to try. I've seen a few posts here from others that have it and they were positive too.
