    We kept it simple.

    I made hamburger buns.

    We like using this recipe for a nice soft roll.

    Sixty Minute Rolls



    I bought 6 beer brats that are made at my store. The hamburgers were my special blend of chuck and round.

    Went to a BBQ at my Mom's with family. We had grilled pork chops, brats, pasta salad and watermelon. Nothing fancy. Not sure what I am going to cook today, if anything.

    Mojo marinated and barbecue-sauced grilled chicken, green beans, potato salad, fried corn, marinated tomato and cucumber slices.

    I guess I'll call it some kind of shortcake, but dessert will be honey scones topped with lavender ice cream, berries (strawberries, blueberries, or both), whipped cream that I'll probably infuse with a little St Germain or limoncello, and I'll shave a little bittersweet chocolate on top. I made the ice cream yesterday and the scones are in the oven now.

    I'm somewhat of a purist when it comes to steaks, I like to taste the flavor of the meat without a lot of distractions so the salt, pepper, and olive oil sounds great to me. Sometimes I'll add a little garlic before cooking or a little Worcestershire sauce or butter after cooking.

    that's kinda what I think, although I'm always up for good suggestions from our resident food nerdz! I'm also gonna do the indirect grilling that IMGreat suggested (and I used) a few weeks ago. It sounds crazy, but Wal Mart makes some good in-house breads (Rosemary Garlic is pretty tasty) and maybe some grilled corn on the cob, as well

    We had burgers yesterday at the river, I apple smoked 2 small pork roasts Fri night that we have been snacking on/making sandwiches with. The pork roast was bought pre-stuffed and Cajun seasoned from Don's Specialty Meats in Lafayette. I think I'm cooking NY strips for supper, haven't decided yet. If I do I will use kosher salt, fresh ground black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder. Season the steaks and let them come to room temp, cook for about 3 min a side on a very hot Green Egg grill with some soaked apple wood chips.

    By the way, at the cookout yesterday My friends came out with a case of frozen pre-paddy hamburgers and I thought to myself that they wouldn't be all that good. I have not had very much luck with bulk frozen paddies. I was very surprised by the size, minimal shrinkage, and flavor. It was a very good burger if you are cooking in bulk. Here is a link if anyone is interested and wants to try them. TNT Burger . We had the 8oz. A small store near here sells them but I don't know where to find them elsewhere.

    IM may have a different opinion but if it were me I'd use roughly one garlic clove, 1 1/2 tsp salt, and 1 tsp pepper per two steaks, rubbing both sides. Salt and seasoning levels are highly subjective, especially for something like steak (plus I never measure ), so jot down whatever combination you use this time and use the same proportions or modify them for the next time until you have the perfect combination.

    I'd season the meat no more than 30-60 minutes before cooking.

    Depends on who you are feeding and their tastes. I would say per steak -

    2 cloves garlic, minced
    2 tsp cracked black pepper
    1 tsp kosher salt
    1 Tbsp olive oil

    a few hours would work best or asap

    ok...just rubbed them on the steaks and they're sitting (covered) in the fridge for the next couple of hours or so.
