OK, that might be an exaggeration, but it really did seem like the parts we ordered to reassemble the grill would never show up. They finally arrived on Thursday (was it a whole month ago that we ordered those?), and we spent the evening reassembling the grill.
Logically, this meant we needed to use the grill as much as possible. So, I did some research, and realized that I didn’t have any grill-worthy recipes for another Linkfest post. Why? Because I’ve had quite a few grilling Linkfest posts in the past, some quite recent: 5/20/08, 9/14/08, 10/9/9, and 4/21/10 [links removed].
I settled on the only one I hadn’t already shared (it was the lone bookmark that was for grilled anything), Grilled Soy-Glazed Chicken and Scallions from The Kitchen Sink, mostly because it was the only one that I didn’t have to go to the grocery store to get additional ingredients (I was interested in the tequila-lime chicken, but we don’t have any tequila in the house, and it seemed like an important ingredient). OK, technically we didn’t have sherry, but I figured I could make a substitution on that without ruining the recipe.
Oh, you wanted to know about the food too? Turned out great! I highly recommend Grilled Soy-Glazed Chicken and Scallions. No pictures – it was too yummy, and we ate it up before I could even think about getting a shot. Add corn on the cob and watermelon, and you have the perfect summer dinner!
All that hard work has really paid off! Grilling is on the menu several times this week, and we used the grill twice over the weekend. We really missed our grill and are glad it’s back!
(For those of you who are wondering why we did all that work, a new Broilmaster of the same series, which would arguably be a bit fancier, costs upwards of $1500. So, yeah, a couple hundred dollars and some manual labor? Totally worth it. Also, we will be buying a cover for it so that it will be protected from the elements, especially Minnesota’s harsh winters. That was too much work to let it sit out in the weather!)
