Hello, and Happy Thanksgiving all! It’s Wednesday afternoon and I just wanted to post a quick update on the turkey cook. I’m on vacation this week, so I can get the cook done during the day, and I even managed to get some fishing in this morning! Of course that means some good stuff for the grill . Continue reading
Well, it’s Monday night on the countdown to Thanksgiving. The turkey is soaking in the brine, right on schedule for my plan to brine for 24 hours then air dry in the refrigerator over Tuesday night, then cook on Wednesday afternoon.

To complicate matters even more, my son-in-law will be working the night shift so we will have to have our meal around lunchtime. So, it looks as though I’ll have to cook the turkey the day before and reheat. Continue reading
Here in South Louisiana we take our LSU football and our tailgating very seriously. I have a friend who puts on one heck of a spread for every Saturday night game in Baton Rouge, with so much to eat & drink that there’s usually quite a bit left over. Continue reading
Things have been a little hectic lately, but I do have some new things to share as soon as time permits. I just wanted to drop a quick line to give a preview of what I have coming down the line. Continue reading
As this is my first post, I’ll start by saying welcome to “What’s on the grill?” I hope you enjoy what I have to share, and look forward to any comments you have to offer! Today I’m going to share something that was a first-time cook for me, and although a very simple one, sometimes simple is the best way to go. Continue reading
