Ooops, how could I forget the Corn on the Cob. See How To Grill page 361. Steven grilled corn too.
Ok, I didn't see the exact recipe for Steven's onions in How To Grill after all. I was thinking of the Barbecued Cabbage recipe which he did similar to this. The tops of the onions were cut off. The centers may have been cored out too. There was a filling with bacon and oil (olive oil I think). I can't remember whether there was anything else in this or not. They were already done before I arrived.
Steven, if you read this please comment on what went in those.
I didn't see the exact recipe used for the grilled bananas in my books so I'll tell more about it. Since, he was promoting The BBQ USA book, maybe they're in there. So far, I have How To Grill and The Barbecue Bible.
The bananas were split as you would for a banana split exept that the skins remained on. The grill was set for direct grilling (not sure what temp range though).
Stevens "Vitamin B3" sauce is named for its 3 ingredients that all begin with "B" ... Brown Sugar, Bourbon, and Butter all equal quantities.
The split sides were brushed with B3 sauce on the fruit itself and laid on the grill friut side down. They were turned once they reached a golden color. The bananas were brushed again and finished when the fruit started to separate from the skins which lets you know they're done.
Steven kept the lid closed part of the time since he was cooking for a waiting group but said its not neccessary to close the lid for this recipe. You'll want to watch your bananas pretty close as your using a high sugar content over direct heat and you want to end up carmelized, not scorched.
It's difficult to describe how good these were. They were amazing! Everyone, go out and try them.
Also, I got to have my picture taken with Steven and he said he would put it on the site. Since I've been without the net for a few days, you guys will have to let me know if my picture was up and I just missed it. I haven't seen it yet. You'll all get to see what the ol' Vinsect looks like.
I didn't see BBcue-Z. I thought he was coming too. Meeting him too would have been the only thing that could have made the event any better. Steven mentioned that he had met airfoils before.
If Steven tours anywhere within driving distance to you, you won't regret going. If you haven't already, check out Airfoils story of when Steven came to his town.
All in all, even though I've been away from the site for a few days and you haven't heard from me, it's been pretty eventfull here.
1. Got to go to Steven's Book Signing
2. BBQ-U finally came to my local PBS station! What a great show!
3. I bought The Barbecue Bible. So while I haven't been on the board, I've been able to spend my computer time reading my new book.
