The best thing I’ve ever eaten grilled was my grandad’s hamburgers. He died several years ago, and I’m yet to find any that can compare. HOwever, if we win, I’m sure my husband will give it his best effort! :)

Christine June 29, 2010 at 8:08 am

Jilly June 29, 2010 at 8:13 am

What an amazing giveaway and wonderful tool! It is so hard to pick one thing on the grill, especially when it is one of my all time favorite things to do! But, I think if I was to say one thing, I would have to be a purest and say a great burger!

Linda June 29, 2010 at 8:15 am

We are big fans of bratwurst–there’s no other place to cook them than on the grill!

Diana June 29, 2010 at 8:16 am

Turley Times June 29, 2010 at 8:21 am

Angel June 29, 2010 at 8:29 am

We’ve had lots of yummy stuff on the grill – it’s our favorite way to cook. We are not vegetarians by ANY means…but my favorite thing ever has been grilled pineapple. A. May. Zing. I know, I was shocked too!

Aimee June 29, 2010 at 8:30 am

My favorite thing on the grill is lemon-oregano chicken drumsticks…YUM!

Fran June 29, 2010 at 8:33 am

My husband grills chicken on the grill. I just put salt, pepper and garlic powder on them and they come out perfectly. Great to eat straight or use in other recipes like enchiladas! Thanks for the chance.

Carolyn Gallo June 29, 2010 at 8:33 am

cbanka June 29, 2010 at 8:34 am

Susan June 29, 2010 at 8:35 am

The best is grilled shrimp kebabs!

Ashley M. June 29, 2010 at 8:35 am

I once saw Paula Deen put pound cake on the grill, at first I thought seriously Paula, pound cake on a grill. But then I relaized that Paula has never misguided me, so I tried it. Holy Butter Lovin’, it was great, especially with grilled pineapple, cool whip and a cherry.

Shannon June 29, 2010 at 8:35 am

I love anything on the grill. There is nothing like the first time you fire up the grill in the summer. That smell is just incredible!

rachel crisman June 29, 2010 at 8:36 am

Sue Lyons June 29, 2010 at 8:36 am

Oh this is awesome. My favorite grilled item is corn on the cob. It’s SOOOOO good!!!

Jordan Solomon June 29, 2010 at 8:37 am

Our favorite is our Margarita Chicken. Marinade your chicken breast in a frozen limeade, grill, and garnish with some fresh pico de gallo. Nothing like the juicy tenderness of the chicken, and the fresh veggies from the pico, all coimng together! Light and filling, and always a hit at our house!

Yvonne DeAntoneo June 29, 2010 at 8:38 am

I think everything tastes better on the grill! I love chicken marinated in Greek Dressing, a slightly burned hot dog or seasoned burgers! Ymmm!

Tina June 29, 2010 at 8:39 am

I’m pretty easy…I absolutely LOVE grilled chicken.
I can’t get enough of it!!

Kaileysmom June 29, 2010 at 8:39 am

My hubby makes the best hamburgers, Yum

Susan DeShaw June 29, 2010 at 8:40 am

My husband is a grill master, and I mean that in every sense of the word. We could be at a complete strangers home, and somehow or another the spatula or tongs ALWAYS end up in my husband’s hands. My daughters and I tease him that he needs a 12 step program when it comes to grilling!!

Jenn H June 29, 2010 at 8:40 am

What an awesome giveaway..thank you! I know it may be the most boring…but I love a grilled hamburger…the taste is just wonderful to me. It’s my favorite:)

I love to marinate big tomato slices in italian dressing or balsamic vinaigrette and grill them with mozzarella slices! They are divine!!

Sharla June 29, 2010 at 8:44 am

We grilled burgers, but made a garlic butter to put in the center of the burger and honestly, it was the best burger I’ve ever had!!

Lindsay T. June 29, 2010 at 8:44 am

Lisa A June 29, 2010 at 8:44 am

My husband’s grilled nectarines, drizzled with a little amaretto and whipped cream. YUMMY!

Kim H. June 29, 2010 at 8:44 am

Katherine Greenough June 29, 2010 at 2:33 pm

Sarah June 29, 2010 at 8:45 am

I *love* marinated chicken- I know it’s simple but I just love it. I also love grilled corn on the cob!

Annette Bowers June 29, 2010 at 8:46 am

My favorite grilled food is pork chops cooked over a layer fresh garden onions with the tops still on them seasoned with a pork rub cooked slow. Hmmmmmm…..so yummy!!!

Jill Frakes June 29, 2010 at 8:46 am

Love Love Love Veggie Kabobs !!!! M’mmmmmmmm yummy and so good for you too………..

Sandy Young June 29, 2010 at 8:46 am

My husband and I went camping and he grilled steak and then a pan of fried potatoes and onions. I don’t think I had tasted anything better. I keep wanting him to remake that meal but he just can’t seem to get it right. I will keep on him until he can.

Laura K. June 29, 2010 at 8:46 am

My favorite is pineapple chicken on the grill!! Yum!

LInda Gilliam June 29, 2010 at 8:47 am

OH my word, what a FUN giveaway! MY fav thing to have on the grill are nice big slices of zucchini or yellow squash that have been marinated in olive oil and fresh squeezed garlic! OMG…it’s to die for, throw on a few green or red pepper slices to go with it and some onions and you’ve got HEAVEN on a plate…goes SOOO well with a steak!
Thank you for such a nice giveaway!

Julie Weller June 29, 2010 at 8:47 am

I ♥ pretty much anything cooked on the grill!!! Grilled angel food caked with grilled peaches topped with vanilla ice cream is SOOOOO YUMMY!!

Tammy @ Not Just Paper and Glue June 29, 2010 at 8:48 am

The best thing I ever ate grilled is chicken that has been basted in our “family secret recipe”. It is a lemon based sauce and it makes the chicken oh so moist and it gives a unique flavor. We also raise our own beef and pork so really anything on the grill is great. Thank you so much for this chance to win this grill. We soooo need it!

Melody Steiner June 29, 2010 at 8:48 am

Our local grocery store makes awesome Gormet burgers that my husband and I love! That and you can’t go wrong with brats! They are my favorite food on the grill :)

Laurie Wright June 29, 2010 at 8:48 am

The best hamburgers I have grilled are mixed with a little salsa and grated cheese. Yummy!

Hannah June 29, 2010 at 8:48 am

Oh my goodness! This would be so amazing for my dad! Our old grill isn’t working well anymore…I can just imagine going, “Oh, hey, Dad, I won a grill for you. No biggie.” That would be so awesome. This is my entry…and the best thing I ever ate on a grill would probably be bolgogi meat. My cousins are from Korea, and they’ve introduced us to a lot of different food. Bolgogi is thinly sliced beef (with an AMAZING marinade) that you put on rice, cover in kimchi (pickled cabbage) and wrap that all up in a big sesame leaf. It’s so good. :-)

Thanks so much for this opportunity–oh, I hope I win. My dad would freak. So awesome. :-)

Kasie June 29, 2010 at 8:48 am

I love grilled tequila lime chicken. The smokey grill adds so much extra flavor :)

Kelly M June 29, 2010 at 8:48 am

My fav thing on the grill is Chiavetta’s chicken and Baby Back Ribs – You need to cook the ribs slow and long and they practically fall off the bones!

Mallory Thompson June 29, 2010 at 8:48 am

I love to stuff hot peppers with cream cheese, shredded cheese, & bacon bits and grill them! New Mexico Big Jim peppers are the best!!!!!

Amanda Walker June 29, 2010 at 8:49 am

I just love being outside in the summer and being able to get out of the kitchen and that is what grilling does for our family! Moves dinner outside and the mess too:) We love to grill corn on the cob in the summer time!

Debbie J. June 29, 2010 at 8:49 am

Mmmm. Flank steak and fresh salmon. Love both of them!

Anna June 29, 2010 at 8:49 am

Everything is better grilled. I especially like deer tenderloin grilled the best… my hubby would always choose fried, but I’ve converted him. We also love Pizza on the grill, to me it’s some what similar to a brick oven type pizza (without the brick oven!)

Cate Welsh June 29, 2010 at 8:49 am

Fresh salmon caught wild in Alaska. Just a little pepper, salt and lemon slice. Heavenly.

Melissa in MI June 29, 2010 at 8:49 am

My favorite grilled food has to be shrimp kabobs! With just a little lemon and pepper, they are fantastic. Add a little grilled pineapple and you just can’t beat it.

Amanda June 29, 2010 at 8:49 am

I love grilling veggies and turkey burgers. yum!

Kathryn June 29, 2010 at 8:49 am

I make killer ribs that start out in the oven and end up on the grill! Those are the best! We also tried grilled pineapples and peaches the other night with a brown sugar honey glaze. Yummy!!!!! Thanks so much for the awesome give away!

shanna uptergrove June 29, 2010 at 8:50 am

We always have a big 4th of July grill fest- lil smokies for the kiddos and huge shrimp for us! This year, we’ll add pineapple, and maybe grilled peaches?? I LOVE veggies on the grill, simple and delicious!

Sausages…in Europe! SO YUMMY!

Marla June 29, 2010 at 8:52 am

Living in Texas we blessed because we can use our grill all year and we do. There are many things that I love from burgers to shrimp. But my favorite hands down has to be New York Strip Steak! Marinated in a cold beer and then coated with a steak seasoning & brown sugar mixture and then grilled to perfection… there’s just nothing better than that!

Vicki June 29, 2010 at 8:52 am

I love to have my husband make bbq ribs on the grill, yummmmmmmmm. I had him make them for Father’s Day for a treat. :)

Lynda June 29, 2010 at 8:52 am

I love grilled shrimp kabobs skewered with cherry tomatoes, onion and green pepper – yummy!

Kaye Collins June 29, 2010 at 8:53 am

Although I am not a very good cook, when I grill chicken, the whole family is happy!!! My personal favorite is grilled pork chops with a peach glaze/sauce served over rice. This is an amazing give-away. One of the grandpa’s from my son’s baseball team had one of these grills. He brought it to the field and cooked hot dogs for the whole team and their families!!! How cool is that???

Deb.E. June 29, 2010 at 8:53 am

A WHOLE turkey! OMG!! The best tasting meat on the grill by my friend Ted! Yum!

Leanne June 29, 2010 at 8:53 am

This weekend we grilled veggie kabobs on the grill and they were magnificent! I just cut up green and red peppers, a red onion, button mushrooms, and cherry tomatoes, put them on skewers, marinated them in olive oil and some grilling spices, threw them on the grill and enjoy! Delicious!

Christy June 29, 2010 at 8:53 am

I would LOVE to win this one! I’ve been begging my hubby to get one so we can grill out this summer – and no luck so far. :) I love making vegetable kebabs and would love to try my hand at grilling other foods as well. Your site is sooo much fun to read!

Missy J June 29, 2010 at 8:53 am

Well, I love all things grilled :) But, my favorite in the summer is pineapple!

Debbie June 29, 2010 at 8:53 am

The best thing we ever grilled was when we lived in the Pacific Northwest in Bremerton Washington, my husband and some friends went fishing and caught fresh salmon. We grilled it with butter and garlic and it was one of the best things I have ever eaten in my entire life.

Mary June 29, 2010 at 8:53 am

Grilled Georgia peaches! Slice in half, brush with a little butter, put on the grill facedown. Top with honey, sprinkle of cinnamon and Haagen Daas vanilla ice cream…TO.DIE.FOR!

My daughter in law’s baked beans!!!

PINAPPLE!! It is so yummy when it is fresh!!!

kathy June 29, 2010 at 8:55 am

Hi Keven & Amanda, My favorite grilled food by far is Shrimp and Scallop Diablo. It’s fresh and flavorable with just a touch of heat. Served as a kebob, it’s brushed with a light sweet & tangy Jalapeno Lime glaze. So yummy!

Leah W June 29, 2010 at 8:56 am

My most recent love of grilled food is corn – shucks and all. For reason, you can’t recreate that taste in any way!! Thanks for the giveaway!

cheryl chandler June 29, 2010 at 8:56 am

OOOOOh, seafod, shrimp, scallops, tuna, salmon!!! Yumbo!! Ang to think of the tailgating with the grill!! Football starts Labor Day week-end.

Tina June 29, 2010 at 8:57 am

We were camping with the cub scouts…one of the parents brought out some lemon chicken and grilled it. It was amazing an so juicy! I still remember the taste like it was yesterday..I have yet to duplicate it, however I still try!

Amanda June 29, 2010 at 8:58 am

ANYTHING on a stick! LOVE to Grill! Thanks for the chance to win!

Monika Wright June 29, 2010 at 8:59 am

I say that you can’t beat great old-fashioned burger on a charcoal grill {not the same on a gas grill, ugh!}. My husband grilled some ears of corn the other night and they were delish!
