Nice grilling weekend so far...

Post  Don Marco on Sat Aug 02, 2008 6:33 pm

Howdy folks...

This weekend was a blast so far. No work - all fun, grilling and having a few cold ones.

Yesterday a friend and i visited another friend (who might look familiar to Mack somehow) and his son who is on vacation on a nearby ( 50 miles) campground with his caravan.

He organized the drinks and we brought the food. Good deal.

Heres a Jack Daniels filled watermelon that i prepared the night before.
Mighty good eats on a hot summer evening.









After eating some healthy fruit it was about time to take care of the real food.
Fired up the 14" old Smokey and a cobb grill for some veggies.



Bell Pepper, Onion and Jalapenos seasoned with S&P and EVOO.





Couple of brats for a quick warmup



Now heres the meat. Argentinian Skirt steak, marinated with Texasbbqrub, EVOO and the juice of a lemon.











Served on tortillas with sour cream, salsas and cheese. Mighty good eats !





After dinner it was time for a special drink.



"Friesengeist" is a local specialty schnapps with almost 60 % Alcohol.
Its served burning in a shotglass and has to be extinguished right before drinking it while saying an ancient saying wich off course gets harder to say after each drink.

The Camera didnt catch the blue flames though.





I really dont remember much of the evening from that point on.

Anyway, heres the sunset





When i arrived home this afternoon i had a craving for beef, so whats better than a nice juicy burger ?

Took to 9 1/2 ounce each irish angus burgers out of the fridge and grilled them over some hickory.

Had some grilled onion, cheddar and chipotly mayo on the burger and served with potato wedges, sour cream and corn with garlic butter.

The Palm beer was of great help while eating this burger, it was one of the few times actually where i had to eat a burger with a knife and fork.
























So long,

DM

Okay DM...I'm having a hard time deciding which looks better...the food or the sunset! Great work as usual!

I've seen 'Irish Burger' posted here a couple of times...what makes a burger Irish? I'm guessing some sort of alcohol, but don't know for sure.

NOTE TO SELF: Extinguish flame from burning shot BEFORE trying to consume. IMPORTANT: If I forget, tell friends NOT to throw additional alcohol on my flaming face...

Its beef from ireland, high quality natural fed cows and the meat was allowed to dry-age.

The Quality and Tase of that meat and burgers are just out of this world.

In all my time of being Irish Ive never come across Irish Burgers as such but I will seek them out soon. Speaking of burgers do any of you guys make your own ? Ive had limited success making my own !

Dave, they are just burgers made from very high quality, dry aged irish beef.
The beef we got over here sucks bigtime compared to that.
