    My contribution to the old thread is we love anything and everything fresh from the gardens. We also love what is cooked on the grill or BBQed. Just mix those concepts together and you have a winner. For example, the classic BLT using lettuce...

    A good cold watermelon on a hot day is just wonderful. We eat lots of salads and sandwiches during the summer. When we do grill out, we usually eat on the patio right off the grill.

    I could really go for things like cucumber and potato salad. I love chicken salad, but I've yet to find a way to make it healthy enough to eat all the time. Maybe it's all in portion control. I think having cold fruit on the side might be a good...

    I cook everything possible on the grill and pair it with a nice salad. If baked potatoes are on the menu, they are done in the microwave and of course the salad is done early in the morning and is in the fridge.

    I know exactly what you mean. It gets too hot to make things inside in the oven or on the stove, so cooking outdoors is a must. I usually make a steak salad that uses baby red potatoes and lettuce and even a shrimp salad with homemade dressing...

    The hottest months of the year are upon us, and where I live, grilled foods and cold foods are a must. What are some of your favorite summer dishes? I always like to make summer meals with a salad, but it's nice to mix things up.

    It all depends on who the judges are and who you are competing against. Different parts of the country have different preferences. Expecting to win a bbq contest with judges and other competitors from the same part of the country that you are...

    I don't know the answer to this trivia question. My son runs a trivia site. I will see if he has an answer or cares. On a tangent. The best foods to try deep frying are chicken wings and french fries.

    Yeah I know a lot's of people has one, but I was wondering for those who don't have money to buy one for 500-600$ if someone would be okay to pay like 150$ to rent a bbq for all the summer.

    If something is deep fried it is submerged in oil. When you fry it you just add some oil or butter to the pan.

    A friend of ours has a bunch of bricks left over from the patio they put in this past summer. He's been trying to get someone to come and get them. We said we would get them just as soon as winter is over. There will be enough to make a nice fire...

    Jim replied to the thread How Often?.
    In the spring through fall at least 2 or 3 times a week here on the plains. In Nebraska we get the FULL 4 seasons, but only the winter slows us down a little. I have a great source for free firewood, a firepit and time to have fun. What more...
