Summer BBQ

I don’t own a grill so I’m always excited (like a three-year-old going to a birthday party) when I get invited over for barbeques. I was a little out of it from cooking like a mad woman all weekend, but it was still fun to laze in the grass and over-cook my meats (as with baking, I’m really bad at grilling—mostly because I have limited experience with it).

I brought some unbelievably delicious pork and apricot sausages from A&J Meats. I know they’re breakfast food, but they are also insanely good cooked on a smoky grill and eaten like an appetizer. I burnt them a little (okay, a lot), but they still managed to be juicy and succulent. We dipped them into honey and maple syrup and ate them with our fingers.

I also brought caribou patties from Exotic Meats. I again left them on the grill way too long and they were a tad dry, but I loved the taste of the meat; slightly gamier than beef, but not overwhelming at all, with a nice meaty texture.

Oh yeah, and we finally got the octodog to work…

    Yeah, it was funny… there was one kid at the party, but the adults were the ones who got the biggest kick out of it.

    OctoDog rules!

  4. Hi would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re working with? I’ve loaded your
    blog in 3 completely different browsers and I must say this
    blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you recommend a good web hosting provider at
    a fair price? Many thanks, I appreciate it!
