Last week’s poll asked if you can handle puke and even after a week of more yogurt smelling and cottage cheese looking puke piles ending up on my arms, shoulders, and shirts I am still no where even close to getting used to it. Yuck. Thankfully it will end in 17.75 more years and I won’t have to deal with it when it really gets bad at 21…
On to this week and a more appetizing poll: while we have covered grilling out before, actually a little later in the year, we didn’t really get down to the hearts of the matter which are how you do it (gas, charcoal, open flame, electric) and how you like your meat cooked.
Now, I’m a propane kinda guy and we will finally be making the switch from electric to the Hank Hill approved method this summer due to the kindness of a stranger. We’ve been using electric since I moved to Minnesota because of restrictions placed on apartments by Burnsville at the time. I continued to use it after we moved to Apple Valley because I thought it was easier than having to refill my tank all the time but after many tripped circuit breakers and finally a smoking heating element, I have decided to go back to the right way ;-)
Now, when I cook meat it’s either medium rare or rare (depending on the steak and depending on who I am serving). While I won’t go so far as Hank Hill above and ask people wanting their meat well-done to leave, “politely but firmly.” I mean, seriously it’s the only way to eat meat. Why the hell would you want to charcoal your meat to death making it like shoe leather and tasting like dirt? If you are a well-done fan well, you can comment but don’t be surprised if Hank Hill himself admonishes you.
So what heating method do you prefer to use on your grill and how do you like your meat done? Vote on the grilling and comment on the food! After you do that be sure to check out our expired polls in the archive or read through the previous posts about polls here.
