Skillet Porn - Sizzling Lodge on Lodge Action

Fajitas were on the menu. After the marinated flank steak left center stage on the Lodge Sportsman's Grill there was still plenty of heat left in the coals to handle an ancient Lodge #9 full of onions, peppers and jalapenos.


Tortillas and corn on the cob followed but hunger + recent disinterest in blogging got the better of me and I stopped taking photos.... If you want to see another post about this grill (with videos) see this one.LINK

Now that it's warm outside I just can't see cooking indoors so whatever I post will be most likely be grilling/ barbecue related.

A "recent disinterest in blogging" is understandable:) When you do have the interest, know that there are people who enjoy and value your posts! Best wishes:)

That grill is AWESOME! I didn't know such a thing existed and it is now on my wish list. Why are you grilling inside a stock tank?

Greg said...

Scott - Thanks, I'm working on another post so I guess I'm getting back into it.

jimmycrackedcorn - It is ALWAYS windy at my place so the tank gets used for grilling and outdoor Dutch Oven cooking.

I've been cooking peppers and onions in the skillet on the grill a lot lately. I'll have to add jalapenos next time. Yum. I like cooking bacon that way too, although hot fat + open flame adds a nice element of danger. I used to get flank steak, but my husband got me to try the carne asada cut from our local market, and I prefer it. Not sure if it's thin-cut flank or skirt (I'll have to ask), but it looks like this http://www.welleatenpath.com/carne%20asada.jpg. Cooks in a flash, super tender.

I like your blog, whether you post regularly or not. :)

Hey mang,

I was able to pull myself up a bit BY taking picture of food. Looking at them gave me the inspiration to carry on. That and been hanging out on a fantastic grilling/bbq forum, doing small Meathengesque posts there. It ramped me up!

Of course, the fact that Char-broil sent me a cooker for review helped too. Meathenge just turned 7.

xo, Biggles

Kim - Thanks! And danger is a good thing.

Biggles - I went a month without having a single topic pop into my empty little head. Oh well.

I'm not on any kind of schedule so I'll just post when I want. It will probably be in bursts and then I'll take breaks.

BIB is 2.

That little sucker of a cast iron grill is expensive. You also have to take care of it because of rust. Want one sort off.

Well it is nice that the weather has changed and you and Biggles will get off your lazy asses.

Greg said...

Want? Hell boy, you NEED one!

Some people paint everything except the grill with high temp woodstove paint. Eliminates the risk of rust for flatlanders that have to deal with that stuff.

I've done zero maintenance on mine besides scrubbing the grill.
