I originally fought the charcoal option when we shopped for grills…
I was raised in a house that came with a gas grill plumbed to the house gasline.
Admittedly, my life’s experience with charcoal was camping and college cookouts on decrepit 20 year old habachi grills. Waiting hours for charcoal to be “ready” is burned into my brain.
Cue, our new kamado grill. Honestly, I’m an artist and designer. I am highly color-cued. The red egg matching our exterior doors and garden furniture sold me before my husband vowed responsibility for the charcoal starting.
He hasn’t lit the grill yet. Because the design of the kamado plus starter cubes make lighting fast and mistake-proof.
Tonight, possibly the last grilling weather of the year, brought grilled drumsticks, and bok choy direct from the garden.
