What's on the Grill? SMOKE.

I'll just start out by saying that after this...


...when I woke up this morning, my farts smelled like hickory.




I did something I hadn't done for a couple years, and which I'm sure all you "real" grillers out there will scoff at: I bought a bag of those nifty little smoking pellets. They look like rabbit food, you wrap them in foil, and smoke pours out into the grill. They're a little more expensive than buying the wood chips, but if you're in a pinch for time (as I was) and don't have time to soak your wood chips, these little boogers are a life saver.

Anyway... since I ended up with four teenage girls at my house for dinner last night (in addition to my regular brood) I had to run out and buy a few extra ribeyes:



Once again, the grill was filled edge-to-edge with meat, and I had to cook the food in shifts. Tonya ended up frying the Asparagus on the stove, which turned out pretty good, while I did the eggplant on the grill. I still haven't found an eggplant concoction I'm satisfied with, but it was pretty good last night:



Oh, and as it turns out, when you get a bunch of teenage girls together they all get self-conscious about how much they are eating and hardly eat a thing, I had two and a half ribeyes left.

Well look at that, it's noon... time for a ribeye sandwich!

Nice...

I like the obligatory beer bottle!

BTW, for the eggplant, try a balsamic reduction...sweet and delicious!
