Last summer I was living in a house that resemenbled the fight club house. Since it didn't have much in the way of a usable kitchen, I bought a weber kettle and used that all summer. Fun times!
Then this summer for my birthday my aunt who runs a kitchen and is full on employed in the food industry, purchased the bbq bible for me, since I'm always smelling of smoke.
Good times!
Unfortunatly now I"m training for a body building contest and really can't eat that much in the way of marinades and souces; here comes the curse.
I couldn't help myself and have been following recipes out of the book for friends birthday party dinners etc etc, and getting quite involved with it.
Its a shame the closest I get after a full day of cooking and preparing souces from the book is just smelling it!
Everyone else says its good though!
Thanks steve!
and curse you at the same time!

Wow, that's rough.

Now it's time to get a book that focuses on healthy grilling. Fortunately, healthy grilling can taste good too!

Oh I definatly eat healthy. I think everythign that I've had to have cooked for my diet comes off the grill, its just the really aromatic stuff that I put together that I'm missing.
Sweet potatoes, yams, turkey, sirloin and chicken all come off the gril. And since I eat those everyday, I'm constantly out there. Fortuantly I only get to eat little bits of it so I can cook ahead 3-4 days and be ok.
3 more weeks!

hears alittle trick you can try, if your doing a steak place a few slices of becan on top or next time you do a brisket save some of the fat and freeze it for a later time doing steaks and stuff.

I sure hope you meant to type in sauce instead of souce. and another point is that I think you wanted to say BACON not becan. when talking about using fat for the steaks. i just thought i would mention those liitle errors. have a good day and keep on grilling.

Now more seriously grilling is an excellent way to eat healthier because about 80% of the fat is rendered off in the cooking process. only problem with that is that fact that fat equals flavor. so to add fat we like to use proscuitto or like was aformentioned becan i mean bacon. it does add fat to the meat and also adds some flavor. if using smoked bacon please be advised that you do not have to use a smoker because the smokey flavor will be transferred into the meat.

Welcome to the board chefinbalti! :D

Around here most of us are concentrating on our tongues & bellies and aren't paying to much mind to what our fingers are typing, so we have a tendancy to overlook typos while giving pictures of good BBQ the attention they are due. :wink: Most typos are probably cause by slobbering on the keyboard and shorting the tiny circuits.

My curse is similar.... I can't eat pork... and what is the main ingredient in most prepared foods ? ? ? ? that is right, pork.

What is added to a lot of cooked beans, etc? ? ? bacon... what is bacon.... pork.

What is considered to the majority when you hear BBQ? ? ? Pork...

What is it I can't eat? ? ? ? Pork.... yes, I am the one that is cursed.....

But I do love to Q other stuff. Love them briskets now, and them there chickens too. Oh yeah, them Q'd cabbages are out of this world..... yes, I too have a couple of Steve's books.... and I do modify recipes that call for pork.

Actually, MrGrumpy, I'm in the same boat ... no pork or hog products ... but between beef, lamb, fish and veg ... I don't really feel deprived -- far from it. Also, courtesy of Philadelphia's Italian Market, I've been able to have venison, ostrich, bison, alligator ....

Nope, don't miss hog at all! :lol:

JasonZ

For me, it's religious and ethical reasons ... I have a daughter (ballerina) who has been a vegetarian since she was 9 ... and other family members who, for other reasons, won't eat hog, so I just find it easier to do without when I'm cooking for them.

Glad to hear it isn't anything physical like me.... I found out another worker that works the same place I do is also allergic to pork. I breaks out when he eats it.... Now I wonder how many others are really allergic to it....

:shock: [color=darkblue]the way i see it anything on the grill is good you dont eat pork fish is an excellent substitute you know smoke some salmon grill just about any kind of whitefish with some veggie kabobs and you wont feel all large afterwards either as for the baked beans they taste just fine without the bacon and if you are that hooked on the taste of bacon in the beans theres always those imitation baco bits
