Chicken Yakitori and Yaki Onigiri
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.
