One nice thing about
this part of the country is that it's rarely too cold to grill outside. Any time of year, a stroll along any suburban
street or country road can bring the aroma of meat cooking over an open flame. Basically, if it ever walked, flew, or
swam around, it's fair game. While stories of hill folk eating road kill are grossly exaggerated, we in the Ozarks do
like to experiment. Who says Spam can't be grilled? Certainly not George Foreman. Just below the Mason-Dixon
Line, summers are too hot for cooking in the kitchen. No problem, just fire up the grill and enjoy that juicy, striped
meat with some cool, sliced tomatoes out on the patio.
Beef, pork, chicken, fish, and...well, you just don't want
to know what else
Lean cuts of meat
That Wal-Mart will
run out of charcoal
Lack of eyebrows, giant tongs, apron with "Kiss the
cook" or equally silly quote
"Those thighs look well-done, but juicy."
