No other type of cooking gives food such a wonderful smoky flavor as grilling. Not roasting, frying, sauteing, boiling or poaching. Grilling can be done inside or outside, but cooking on your grill outside is absolutely the best.
People have known how great foods can taste on an open fire for a very very long time. I think it’s even in our blood.
Early cave man toiled heavily to aquire and maintain his fire so he could be warm and cook his food. He traveled immense distances to get both his food and his fire. But, when he finally came to rest, ate this food cooked on his open fire… He looked up in the vast, black, star filled sky and smiled. And he smiled big…and whispered…
“Attra.” (Fire) (from the movie: Quest for Fire)
Somewhere, cave man experienced a particular euphoria that imprinted this utter delight with his food being cooked on an open flame into his DNA. Thus, here we are, millions of years later, in the twenty first century cooking our food on our grills and loving the flavor that we simply cannot get from any other source.
So it’s no wonder that grilling has become a social event that invites all types of people to participate. Outdoor grilling is often the hub that congregates friends, neighbors and family around the grill to share their stories, trade recipes, bring their coveted special recipe dishes and even help cook. Often times when you are involved in meals that includes eating outside, somewhere in the center of all the activities, there will be a backyard gourmet sporting their own masterful grilling skills behind their grill. And that master griller showing off their tasty grilling treats can be you creating great meals all on your grill!
