Meat Free Grilling

Well, I did buy a grill after all. A weber smokey joe silver tabletop. It's basically your standard round charcoal grill, but pint sized. I got it at Target for $29.99. Not bad. Not bad at all. I got some corn while I was there too. To roast on my new grill.

It's funny cuz I wasn't going to buy a grill at all. But then I realized that my car needed to go to inspection and I had forgotten and my month had expired and the next day was Saturday and I could do it then if I was up early enough. I wound up awake at 7am on Saturday and went to the inspection station 2 days late. There was no line. And it only took a few minutes. And no one cared I was late. On my way home I was passing the Target and decided to go in and look.

I first found a pair of cargo shorts for not a bad price in a rare red tone I could not pass up. Then I found the grill and visions of corn and potatoes began dancing in my head. So I went for it. I also got 4 ears of fresh corn and some charcoal. It was easy to grill up the corn and it tasted very good.

The next day we went to the supermarket and got a little too ambitious. I did not want to cook meat on it of any kind, but I gave in to the hamburgers. They oozed all over my potatoes and then it started to rain suddenly. I managed to keep the grill going and get the potatoes and burgers cooked. I had some asparagus I had wanted to grill. That didn't happen.

But meat is just a nightmare. The fat and juices. The tainted utensils. I only have two metal utensils. One tongs and one spatula. Which is fine for veggies and fruits. You can just keep using the same one. But with meat you have to switch. One for underdone and one for done meat. And of course I accidentally touched some potatoes with the meat one. Yuck.

I don't get why people eat meat. It's so much trouble. And so dangerous. And it doesn't really taste good. Faux meat is so much better. They're so brainwashed. It's sad. Sad for them and sad for the animals.

I was trying to be tolerant. That was my mistake.

No meat. Ever again. Not on my grill.

On the plus side my potatoes came out really good. I did some sliced. Which were crispy on the outside and tender inside. Just how they should be. And I did some baked. Such crunchy, charcoaly skins and fluffy delicate innards. Potato perfection.

A grill is the perfect way to cook corn on the cob and potatoes in the summer months. And other vegetable and fruits too. You don't heat up your house by turning up your oven to 450 degrees. And you get great flavor from the charcoal. Just beware of people trying to encroach on your grilling area with dead animal flesh. Stay strong!
