I have recently been learning more about grilling and I love the flavor it gives the meat. There is just something fun about being outdoors and barbecuing that adds to the summr.

P.S. Thanks Crisco for doing this giveaway!

Lynn Owens June 29, 2010 at 9:41 am

I love many things barbequed (grilled) but one of my favourites is lamb leg steaks brushed with french mustard then dipped in demerera sugar before being cooked on the bbq … yummy.

Lena Beth June 29, 2010 at 9:42 am

The best thing I ate grilled is a steak my husband marinated over night and grilled the next morning, we sautéed onion, bell pepper, and mushrooms…scrambled some eggs… sliced the steak thin, mixed up a sauce to drizzle over it and served on a tortilla… they are wonderful! Grilling around our house happens breakfast, lunch and dinner! Thank you for sharing such a great giveaway!!!

Sarah June 29, 2010 at 9:42 am

The best thing i ever ate grilled was chicken & vegatable kabobs with an incredible mango lime marinade & grilled saganaki (cheese)

Jennifer in Idaho June 29, 2010 at 9:43 am

We eat a lot of things from the grill, and my favorite is probably steak….BUT have you ever tried asparagus? Just toss it in some olive oil with a little salt, and throw it on the grill…YUM. Asparagus like you have never experienced before!

Patricia June 29, 2010 at 9:43 am

I love grilled veggies. My son-in-law makes the best. This grill will make them even better. :)

Angela June 29, 2010 at 9:43 am

Veggies!!!!!! Any kind.

Janice Whiting June 29, 2010 at 9:43 am

Oh FUN!!! The best grilled food I’ve had was the Hawaiian styled Shish Kabobs my husband made at my son’s Luau birthday party this weekend! Oh, they were just so good!

Shelley June 29, 2010 at 9:44 am

I love marinating chicken in Italian dressing and then BBQing it…yum!

Katie Cotton June 29, 2010 at 9:45 am

We Made Kabobs Over The Weekend That Were To Die For…So Juicy And Flavorful! An Absolute Delight!

Courtney June 29, 2010 at 9:46 am

Nothing like brined chicken breasts on the grill. Delish!

Vicky June 29, 2010 at 9:48 am

Hamburgers are terrific on the grill … especially if we season them with Adkins Fajita Seasoning. We can’t find it in Arizona, so we send for it from Texas. Yummy :)

Andrea June 29, 2010 at 9:49 am

My favorite thing on the grill is lemon-pepper salmon…mmm! Our grill has been out of commission for awhile so I would love to win this giveaway!

Amanda Eller June 29, 2010 at 9:49 am

Hands down, the grilled Caribbean-style shrimp from a wedding I photographed last Friday. Had a hint of cilantro and a little hotness. YUM-DIDDLY-SCRUMPTIOUS!!!

Carrie June 29, 2010 at 9:49 am

My husband’s grilled lamb chops – so incredible – the meat melts in your mouth. Love that grill, BTW – so sleek looking.

Anna Marshall June 29, 2010 at 9:50 am

I LOVE chicken marinated in catalina dressing and then grilled. Seriously the best!

Lisa Cutler June 29, 2010 at 9:50 am

The best grilled thing I ever ate was when I was 18 at at summer camp. We did a camping trip about 2-4 miles from the camp and for breakfast we grilled hamburgers. To this day, no hamburger has ever tasted as delicious or evoked such memories. I wish I could go back in time and enjoy that whole summer all over again.

Rachel B June 29, 2010 at 9:51 am

I had a boyfriend once who grilled up catfish that he had marinated in teryiaci sauce for a few hours and then he brushed on more sauce during the grilling process. Best fish I ever had!

MandaKay June 29, 2010 at 9:52 am

Mmmmmm…we love grilling out in the summer! I don’t cook this very often, but my favorite is to cook a whole chicken over the beer can/wine in a can, with spices! YUM! What a great opportunity – thanks!

Heidi June 29, 2010 at 9:52 am

I love grilled pineapple! So yummy…

Rachel J. June 29, 2010 at 9:53 am

Can’t beat a grilled burger!!

Great giveaway Amanda! I love grilled shrimp and pineapple skewers! Yummmmmm!

Montanna Honc June 29, 2010 at 9:54 am

I love our home town Key Lime Grilled Shrimp recipe! They make it at this resturant near my house and it is so light and delicious it practically melts in your mouth. I would love to try it out on that new grill.

Sheena Perron June 29, 2010 at 9:57 am

I agree with many of the other readers…everything tastes better grilled. I would have to say my favorite is grilled Shish-ka-bobs or BBQ Chicken. I love summer! Great giveaway by the way!

Danielle June 29, 2010 at 9:57 am

There is nothing better than a good steak on the grill.

My husband makes the BEST ribs on the grill…I don’t know how he does it, but they are delicious!

Emily Vikkler June 29, 2010 at 10:01 am

My favorite thing is Fajitas. I have found the perfect Mojo to marinate my flank steak in and it comes out soo good.

Ann June 29, 2010 at 10:01 am

The best thing I ever ate grilled was a whole white onion. I thing because the first time it was such a surprise in its goodness. Take a whole onion, peel it, core out a portion to create a little well. Put butter in the well, wrap it all in heavy foil for grilling and grill for 1 hr. It it sooooo yummy.

Dale Fonville June 29, 2010 at 10:02 am

Grilled salmon on cedar planks has got to be my favorite grilled food. I place a slice of lemon on each salmon steak and then sprinkle sliced almonds on top of the lemon and salmon. Even after soaking the cedar planks, I have to watch them and have my spray bottle ready to keep a fire from starting. MMMMMMM Good!

Jacque June 29, 2010 at 10:02 am

Chicken Kabobs with pineapple, grape tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, stoplight peppers – YUM!!!!!!!!!1

Mignonne Gardner June 29, 2010 at 10:03 am

Mmmm, I love just about anything grilled but I think scallops with a citrus seasoning would have to be my all time favorite! Thanks for this opportunity Amanda.

Megan Z. June 29, 2010 at 10:03 am

Ooooh! I hope you pick me :) The best thing I ever had grilled was good old cheeseburgers with grilled corn on the cob … the best :)

Jenny June 29, 2010 at 10:03 am

My husband made me the BEST teriyaki salmon on the grill!

anita June 29, 2010 at 10:04 am

What a hot giveaway! :) My favorite grilled meal is a nice New York strip steak with Montreal steak seasoning and grilled potatoes with onions, butter, and garlic seasoning. YUM! Thanks so much for the chance to win!

Amy June 29, 2010 at 10:05 am

There is so much good food that comes off the grill – difficult to decide on just one. My husband recently did a teriyaki flat iron steak that came out so good we made it the next weekend for friends. That’s the best thing that I’ve had recently. But I also really like grilled asparagus made so it is still crunchy and then drizzled with a Dijon-Balsamic sauce. **yumm**

Carlaj June 29, 2010 at 10:06 am

hands down one of my favorites is grilled turkey breast. We marinade it for days ahead and my husband grills it for Thanksgiving…then we run it through the meat slicer and slice it nice and thin. Did I mention he also does pheasant too. We marinade it in italian dressing and wrap it in bacon. All I can say is YUM!!!!

Joani McDonald June 29, 2010 at 10:06 am

Grilled summer squash and zucchini drizzled with olive oil, minced garlic and a sprig of rosemary. It’s yum-ola!! Thanks for the chance to win the giveaway!

Amber Gusa June 29, 2010 at 10:06 am

On Sunday we had grilled chicken breasts with some sort of Korean barbecue sauce. I am not sure about the recipe, as it was my Korean friend doing the cooking. But OH BOY, it was great!

noy9ers June 29, 2010 at 10:08 am

When we use to have a grill when the children were younger, they loved to make pizza on the grill. It gave it such a nice flavor and they each got to make their own.

Jane June 29, 2010 at 10:08 am

I love homemade burgers on the grill with grilled onions :) yummm!

Sarah P. June 29, 2010 at 10:10 am

Happy Birthday, meagan!

I just love Cowboy Steaks on the grill – they are a local product – and I don’t know what it is that they do to prepare them – but they are the most tender, flavourful steaks I have ever had outside of a fine dining restaurant! Serve ‘em up with corn on the cob and a fresh salad and I am in heaven!

Amber June 29, 2010 at 10:41 am

AnaBel June 29, 2010 at 10:43 am

I love grilled veggies! Asparagus and zucchini – no better way to prepare them than oiled up, grilled and sprinkled with garlic and freshly grated Greek mizithra cheese. Delish! Grilling makes everything better!
