There is something primal about the smell of a charcoal fire. Over at my house, we have a great old school Weber that we absolutely adore! I was so happy when a foggy, rainy Tuesday actually ended up being the most glorious and sunny day so far this spring . We decided to spark up that bad boy bbq, and grill us some food! Doug & I have recently made a pact to be “vegetarian” for awhile, but this was the day that we had to temporarily cease and desist; and out came the Sweet Williams chorizo sausages that had been staring at me from the freezer for the past few weeks. These would be our protein, along with some grilled radicchio and eggplant that was later tossed with Cosman & Whidden honey and extra virgin olive oil. Sweet potato grilled whole in its skin, some yellow peppers and of course grilled baguette rubbed with garlic, Maldon Salt and more olive oil would take up all the room on the grill. This was all served alongside an impromptu cheese plate (assembled by Douglah) which included some Dragon’s Breath, Old Growler and Oka. The entire “grill-up” was paired with Propeller Pale Ale. As the sun set on us in our backyard, we looked at each other and said,
We really must do this more often!
