    Summer time is grilling time!

    The rules of this months challenge is simple: One component of the food needs be be grilled.

    Charcoal, gas, firepit or grillpan, anything goes.

    The most mouth watering picture shall be the winner.

    While i'm out of the competition, I go first, with a seamless transition from June's challenge, my favourite, grilled vegs.

    Grill on!

    Wintertime here!

    But grilling will keep me warm (we got no central heating), so I am all for it /img/vbsmilies/smilies/thumb.gif

    I think in Australia the New York or strip steak is called sirloin, but in the United States they are different. I think I have a chart somewhere...

    Found it:

    Great, I am just starting to get back into grilling because I just obtained a 3 burner weber. I'm also working on converting my 2 burner weber into a charcoal smoker.

    Needless to say; this is going to be fun. Expect multiple entries from the 4th and on!

    Best luck to all!

    Ok, so I'll be the first to throw something into the arena.

    Pork spare ribs, cooked with charcoal and smoked with oak pellets using the amazin smoker

    Coffee Rib Rub... equal parts brown sugar, black pepper & kosher salt with granulated garlic, granulated onion, smoked paprika, chili powder and a couple coffee scoops of Peet's Italian roast.

    Onto the grill for approx 3 hrs at around 275 then glazed with three coats of bbq sauce.

    Well, I'm out!

    We're renting an apartment for about 5-6 months while our new home is being built.

    No grilling apparatus of any kind here and ALL of my stuff is packed away in storage.

    *sniff*

    BUT!


    One of my favorite things to grill ... 

    Half-sized Chicken Teriyaki Skewers, maybe 3 bites.

    Now mind you @JAH42  this is NOT an entry, because this photo

    is from awhile back, but I just love this shot and wanted to share it.

    Made this platter of goodness for a Cocktail Party a couple of

    Summers ago...they were gone just as soon as I put them down!

    @chefbuba:

    Did you first grill the ribs and then smoke them with the pelletsmoker? Or how did you do this?

    That's a coldsmoker isn't it?

    I got the proQ cold smoker and I was looking at combining it with a hot plate for hot smoking/bbq, but if I can make it work with charcoal..... So much the better!

    I just used my grill as an off set smoker, coals on one side and meat on the other. Now it just acts as a big oven. I use the pellets as a source of smoke.

    When the ribs were done, I put them directly over the coals to glaze the sauce on.

    Amazen pellet smoker

    Your pro q works on the same principal. As long as you have a heat source and smoke, you can make some bbq. Some purists will say otherwise, but if it tastes good, eat it!

    For years, before I got my smoker, I used my Weber kettle grill as a smoker, for BBQ.  It worked well and I still use it occasionally for making BBQ.

    Grilling challenge is right up my alley. Sadly, I am sick in bed for the entire "best grilling weekend of the year in the US". I might be able to summon the strength for an entry tomorrow, but for now I will post a pic from a while ago. (Obviously not entry, just want to prepare folks for what's coming. Game On!

    The weather looks dodgy

    So indoor grilling it is.

    Does BBQ count, or does it have to be direct grill? ChefBubba's counts because he direct grilled to glaze ribs. What about pulled pork or smoked chicken?
