BBQ Baby!

Memorial Day weekend and we FINALLY got a grill! 

If you are familiar with Mid Century Modern homes you will know that many of them are not insulated.  It wasn't a practice in the building process during the 50's and much less in Southern California.  Every summer I am dying in the kitchen. It's hot in our house and the last thing I want to do is turn on the oven and make it worse! I try to come up with all sorts of "oven-less meals" which for me is hard because I hate microwave food. 

We've been looking at grills for 2 years now!  Gas, not gas, gas to hook up to an existing gas pipe we have, stainless, retro-colored, with the works, without the works, etc, etc.  Then last weekend we went to our friends for dinner.  They live in the South Bay and they have exquisite taste for food....and they can cook like nobody's business.  They don't use a gas grill, only charcoal and that meal was the final vote that tilted our decision to a charcoal grill. 

Friday night I had to go to Home Depot and Dave and P came along to look at grills. They had this cool looking orange one called a Stok. We loved it's color of course and the price, $99 on sale.  Tonight we had our first bbq meal at our house. It was sooooo good.  Dave can cook a mean burger and corn on the cob....and he's got the face to go with it!
