Breaking in the Keg

by zydecopaws on January 20, 2011

My wife likes burgers. She likes them even better when I cook them on a grill. Which I rarely do. So what better way to break in a new grill and win some brownie points at the same time?


So tonight was burgers and grill fries on the new Big Steel Keg (which is yet to be named, although Pigdog has made some interesting suggestions). The burgers were handmade, about 3 times the size of the pre-made variety, sprinkled with some Santa Maria Style rub from The Rub Company, and topped with some smoked Jack cheese we received in a Christmas gift basket from my sister. The grill fries were Yukon taters sliced into french fries and tossed in EVOO, granulated garlic, and some Simply Marvelous Season All mix.


The results were good enough to make satisfying sounds emanate from the wife before, during, and after dinner. I’m chalking this cook up as a winner…
