Grill Day

Along with spring and summer come Grill Days and demonstrations.  Various days throughout the summer I partner up with a terrific local business that sells outdoor patio furniture, firepits, grills, smokers, outdoor kitchens, accessories, grill spices/sauces.  You get the idea.  It is the kind of place you want to shop and hang out when creating your patio or deck 'rooms.'

Saturday was our first Grill Day.  One of the owners who is a terrific cook usually grills with me. He does all of the grocery shopping and food prep too! We decided to stray away from our usual beer can chicken and tri tip and offer a more diverse menu...too really show off what these grills can do.  Customers get to nosh while browsing the showroom and outdoor showroom.  Grill Days are popular.

On the menu:  Grilled Asparagus spears with Tammy's Herb Seasoning, Grilled sliced potatoes with Mojave Lemon Pepper, Grilled Quesadillas with mushrooms, garlic, spinach and goat cheese (cook the mushrooms, onions, garlic and spinach in a hot dutch oven right on the grill),  Grilled Pork and Apple Skewers marinated in mustard vinagrette, Grilled pizzas in the Wood-fired Pizza Oven (crispiest crust ever).  We even tried a pizza with strawberries, goat cheese and a sprinkle of sugar and cinnamon.  YUM.
