I'm not much of a regular griller during the summer months (except for the odd day here and there), but there's something about the cool crisp air of autumn, coupled with the smell and warmth of campfires that really get my juices flowing.
The jumbo grills are what we favor this time of year, as there is usually something big and bad getting seared over coals and/or wood chips.
Last weekend a pig met his demise beside the Kankakee River:
Anyone ever cook corn in this fashion?
There is a grate about ten inches off the bottom in these cans, with water on the bottom steaming the ears to perfection. Best corn-on-the-cob I've ever had in my life! Note the can of butter for dipping. MMMMMmmmm Good!
This weekend was also custom tailored for spending time outdoors as I grabbed the kids and brought them to a friend's place for a feast of fresh Goat (I do mean fresh- he has many on the property- minus 1 today, of course).
Wild Goose over wild rice, cajun sausage, italian sausage, meatballs and Venison Tenderloins were the main staples among many choices we laid out today.
Sorry, no photos- just relaxation with family and friends, and some target practice out by the pumpkin patch.
Campfires, Grilling and Autumn afternoons.
Is there a better time of year to be alive and in the Great Outdoors?
