Tequila Lime Thigh Kabobs

Last night was the last night of bachelorhood as Sharon and Marina come home tonight. Had a great evening of welcome thunderstorms and Egging. Dinner was chicken kabobs. Boneless/skinless thighs and veggies marinated in Tequila Lime Marinade (bottled stuff). Pre-grilled the veggies on disposable grill screen to tenderize a bit before skewering with chicken. Used tjv's adjustable grid once again to support the skewers. Next time will use wooden skewers so stuff doesn't spin so mush during turning. Substituted fresh, young okra for shrooms this time. Nice flavor change.

Also did a mini skillet of fried okra as a side. Okra pic is my first fruits this summer, but much more on the way.

    Mike, the Tequila Lime Chicken kabobs look fabulous! :) Now, don't let this go to that macroencephalitic head of yours, but your photography rocks!

    Is that you LR gridlifter in the 4th and 9th pics....or another custom LR gizmo that I need to order? B)

    Great meal! Fried okra is a favorite of mine but have never tried to do it on the Egg yet.

    Nice use of the Rig for a kabob holder.

    Mike that is one good looking meal. Your pictures are awesome and clear, so clear in fact I believe I noticed a crack running from top to bottom on the base of your egg. If so doesn't it qualify for a replacement? Also now that I see how the grid lifter works I may have to add it to my order. ;)

    Thanks, Man. Yes, is.
  • vidalia1vidalia1 Posts: 7,091
    Absolutely fabulous.... :P

    how high is your outdoor ceiling and do the BGE's get it smokey at all???
  • OK, I'll be ordering one now. Dave

    Good eyes! That Egg has a storied past.... Long ago, it belonged to Mollyshark. One dark night in Ft. Worth, a storm rearranged the Eggs on her patio resulting in the Mini crashing to the ground and cracking. She bought a new one and gave this one to my son, Ryan. He moved to Nebraska, and now I have the Mini. It still works great. Note the band gives it character. ;)

    Thanks, Man! I think those are 9+ feet. Fans work great, and I've never had it smokey.

  • vidalia1vidalia1 Posts: 7,091
    Thanks for the info and the pics...someday I hope to have an outdoor kitchen very similar... ;)
  • That is one fine looking gourmet meal! Nice pic's

    Wow...outstanding! Did you take a photo class or something - pictures are looking great.

    Oh, and sorry to ask, but are you really eating all of that by yourself? Geez, the boss can't leave cuz you end up packing it on... :huh:
  • That is an awesome patio
  • BurntRawBurntRaw Posts: 565
    Beautiful! When I grow up I want to have something like that.

    But, when you say "celebs in the last shot" is that kind of like when they say "stars" on Dancing with the Stars? :woohoo:
