It is our 5th +100F day in a row. Three have been over 102F. No way in hell am I cooking anything in the house tonight.

Tonight's menu: burgers, dogs, tots and corn on the cob. All on the grill.

I have some chicken breasts marinading in some Backyard Brew mix. Makes for great summertime eats with some grilled asparagus and zuccini!

I never thought about doing up tots on the grill, but I'm going to try it this weekend for sure! Thanks for the idea! Tomorrow I'll start marinating my pork steaks; 24 hrs in a pineapple/teriyaki marinade does wonders for pig. Bacon wrapped shrimp kabobs & a variation on Steven Raichlin's BBQ onions, with grilled pears for dessert. Wash it all down with a tasty brown ale. I love to grill!
Regards, GF.

Grilled tots. sounds... delicious.

GF, while it sounds delicious, isnt 24 hours in a marinade with such sweet pineapple flavor too much on the sweet side? I am a bit of a meat purist and rarely marinate anything other than chicken, and tend to go for spicy over sweet.

Think I may have to throw a Vidalia or Georgia Sweet onion on the grill tonight with some ribs and corn now that you all got me hungry.

Gas. I sincerely believe my are ancestors laughing at me whenever I try to start a fire with wood or charcoal. Besides, I like the instant heat.

I put the tots in a small pan on the top shelf, basically treating the grill like an oven. It took 20 minutes at about 450F to cook half a bag.

And thanks for reminding me I have 4.5lbs of chicken in the freezer I can thaw out for tonight.

I'm still working it out, but I'm thinking a sauce made from butter & LME would work well. Regards, GF.

While it is on the sweet side, it's not too sweet for me. Everyone who's tried it so far has liked it. I make my own marinade, but I start with Kikkoman teriyaki marinade. I add a quart of pineapple juice to 1 bottle of the Kikkoman, along with about 1/2 a bottle of low sodium soy sauce. I like to add a couple dashes of mesquite liquid smoke too.

I find that 24 hrs is the max amount of time to marinate, at least with this marinade; any more & the texture of the meat begins to degrade. Sometimes I'll marinate for less time, usually because I just have less time.

Now the secret to getting these marinated pork steaks to pop is to grill 'em slow & brush them with dark sesame oil for the last few minutes.
You can certainly add spices if you want, I've used chipotle chili powder before, I've also added a spoonful of rooster sauce to the marinade; both worked well for me.

It's a pretty versatile & forgiving marinade, you can change it up almost any way you want & it'll still come out tasty.
Regards, GF.
