The Thrill of the Grill

by Vivian A

Ever since man first put a chunk of dinosaur meat over a hot flame in some lonely cave, he has quested for new and better ways to cook meat. Give a guy a grill and you’ll find one happy man.

You’ll find two types of grilling methods – gas and charcoal. The size of the grill is up to the man and his budget. Wander around a hardware store and you’ll see all sizes and brands ready and waiting to make the trip to the back yard or deck.

Wander over to the 641.5784 section of the library stacks and you’ll find Bobby Flay, George Foreman and many others ready to teach you how to marinade, filet or rub your meat to pre-flame perfection.

There’s even an indoor electric grill for rainy days. And it doesn’t matter if you like beef, pork, chicken, fish or even veggie burgers – there’s something available for your taste. No pun intended.

What is it with men and their grills?!?!? My husband could not wait for summer to come so that he could break out the grill and throw some burgers and ribs on it. Now, I’m cool with that, but this summer, I wanted to try something a little different.

Thanks to the library, I was able to find all kinds of cook books concerning grilling (my husband’s favorite) and pizza (my ultimate addiction).

Here are two cookbooks with some great “grilled pizza” recipes:
Grilled Pizza and Piadinas (641.5784 Pri)
Pizza on the Grill: 100 Feisty Fire-roasted Recipes for Pizza and More (641.5784 Kar)

Hope everyone enjoys these books as much as we did and happy grilling!!!
