A while back, I blogged about Kyle's birthday week. But, I didn't mention what his "big" gift was because we weren't sure if we were going to take the plunge or not. But, after a good bit of research and lots of should we/shouldn't we discussions, Kyle decided to go ahead and get a grill.
He wanted a charcoal grill. I have never grilled before - let alone dealt with charcoal, but I read up and felt semi-confident about it. So, off we went to Home Depot. About an hour later and we were home with our brand new grill - all ready for the summer!
We decided not to waste any time, and to try our hand at it tonight. Burgers & dogs - I mean, you can't really mess up, right? :)
We bought a chimney starter - which I'm already a big fan of.
"umm, honey? Is it supposed to be smoking this much?"
While I tended to the coals, Kyle prepared the food. I think he was a little annoyed when I was like "WAIT! Don't flip the burgers yet! I need to take pictures!" But, he humored me. Because he loves me. :)
So, our burgers turned out a big rounder than we anticipated - but they were really, quite yummy!
Kyle and I were both kinda proud of ourselves for figuring this whole thing out on our own. Of course, there's no stopping me now. I've already got steaks and corn on the cob and half a dozen other things waiting for their turn over the flames.
So Happy Birthday Kyle! May you become a master griller beyond your expectations. >
