paula.thequilter June 29, 2010 at 12:54 pm

Katie Julius June 29, 2010 at 1:09 pm

My husband and I recently discovered how delicious grilled corn-on-the-cob is! We leave a some of the husk on so it’s not blackened, but it still gets that smokey flavor. It’s SOOOO much better than when cooked in a bot on the stove!

Tana Eggleston June 29, 2010 at 1:12 pm

It really doesn’t get much better than a thick, grilled steak. But I also love chicken, shishkabobs, hamburgers…pretty much anything. I use my grill year round…rain,sun,snow, it really doesn’t matter! The food is great, the clean up is easy!

Erin J. June 29, 2010 at 1:13 pm

ANYTHING my grandfather grills! It could be just a piece of chicken or a steak. It is all delicious.

Elaine Kirby June 29, 2010 at 1:24 pm

We love to grill salmon and put on some olive oil, then some artichoke hearts and some roasted red peppers=yummy!! Serve with rice and it’s super delish!

Kim L. June 29, 2010 at 1:24 pm

Grilled chicken is my all-time fave! Grilled boneless, skinless can be cooked ahead and then used in salads and pastas later in the week. I also like to grill half chickens for company. Lots of good eatin!

jen June 29, 2010 at 1:29 pm

Sounds funny, but grilled bananas. And I’m not a huge banana fan, but grilled & drizzled with a bit of honey and fresh whipped cream, WOW! : ) PS What a slick looking grill! I’d love to win this!

Gina D. June 29, 2010 at 1:41 pm

I love grilled shrimp with a little homemade bbq sauce!

Kelsey S June 29, 2010 at 1:42 pm

Wow! There is so much that we grill. I guess I’m a big fan of most things that come off the grill, but I would say I used to really love eggs & bacon hobo-style in a bag. At a camp I worked at we grilled every week over open flame these crazy things that ended up soooooo good. Runner up would definitely be grilled corn-on-the-cob. So tasty!

Cindy E. June 29, 2010 at 1:43 pm

I actually love to grill zucchini slices and use them in place of lasagna noodles when I make lasagna. Yummy!

From the Heart June 29, 2010 at 1:44 pm

Oh how exciting! What a great giveaway!
I love, love grilled mushrooms wrapped in baccon!!

Denelle June 29, 2010 at 1:46 pm

I’m not sure I could pick a favorite grilled item….salmon, filet, shrimp, fresh pineapple, peaches, asparagus. I could go on and on.

Michele June 29, 2010 at 1:49 pm

I would say grilled apples with a little bit of brown sugar on top! Yum!

Jehn June 29, 2010 at 1:50 pm

The best thing I ever ate grilled were foil dinners, I know it isn’t very fancy but I love how you can cook it all at one time and the vegetables come out so delicious!!

Dana S June 29, 2010 at 1:54 pm

Awesome giveaway! My favorite grilled item is veggie and beef kabobs! yummy! or tons of veggies grilled for stuffed pitas with a little cheese and ranch sauce!

Lyn June 29, 2010 at 1:55 pm

Bruschetta chicken ~ yummm!!

Jessie June 29, 2010 at 2:02 pm

Jenn P. June 29, 2010 at 2:04 pm

stephanie June 29, 2010 at 2:04 pm

The best thing I’ve ever eaten grilled…hands down…Big Island of Hawaii — Fresh caugh Mahi Tuna with a Papaya Mango bbq glaze. It was DELISH!!! I’ve never tasted anything like it since.

Kelly S June 29, 2010 at 2:05 pm

I love grilled bacon-wrapped shrimp! Yum!

Traci June 29, 2010 at 2:14 pm

Grilled banana peppers filled with cheese and bacon bits!

Karla June 29, 2010 at 2:17 pm

Is there anything that isn’t good grilled? My favorite is probably grilled chicken…or burgers…or corn on the cob..or pineapple…yumm..If I have to keep it to one thing–it’s chicken.

Jan N. June 29, 2010 at 2:19 pm

I’m a simple girl – my favorite food to grill out is hamburgers and hot dogs! The All-American favorites!

Mary Anne June 29, 2010 at 2:21 pm

It’s a toss up between bacon wrapped scallops, or fresh Florida lobster or ribeyes with a dry coffee rub! Who could possibly choose from those three?!

sarah lejeune June 29, 2010 at 2:24 pm

i love love love grilled onions w/ olive oil and cracked pepper!

Jessica G. June 29, 2010 at 2:24 pm

I Live For My Crisco Nonstick Spray! When It Comes To Grilling, My Father-In-Law Makes THE BEST Grilled Salmon You’ll Ever Taste. It’s Tangy But Sweet At The Same Time, Nobody’s Salmon Even Compares!

Jessica June 29, 2010 at 2:27 pm

Very cool giveaway, thank you! My favorite thing to grill is steak kabobs. Yummo!

yuki June 29, 2010 at 2:27 pm

Grilled fresh pineapple FTW!!! Or grilled shrooms of all sorts….mmmm yum!!

Jenny H. June 29, 2010 at 2:27 pm

My favorite all time thing to grill is chicken kabobs. You marinate the chicken over night in a mixture of ranch, olive oil, garlic and other spices. It is amazing. Then you thread it onto skewers w/ zucchini, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, red onions..whatever you want. Delicious!!!! :)

Ciara June 29, 2010 at 2:27 pm

My hubby makes a mean meal on the grill, consisting of steak, corn on the cob, and foil potatoes. YUM!

Beatriz G. June 29, 2010 at 2:30 pm

My absolute fave grilled food is my sister in law’s salmon and veggies. Aluminum foil and butter never worked so great on the grill! SO so delish!

Elaine June 29, 2010 at 2:31 pm

Grilled corn on the cob!

We just threw out old portable grill out that we use when traveling in the motor home. This one would a perfect replacement!!!!!!!!!

carol amie June 29, 2010 at 2:32 pm

my current favorite is simple chicken breasts marinaded in Wegman’s Mojo flavoring and served up with some grilled fruit and veggies on the side. Easy (you can buy pre-marinaded chx in the meat aisle) and my kids (5, 3 and 2) will all eat it, too. Score! :P

Denise June 29, 2010 at 2:33 pm

I have to be honest I never grill because it scares me a little. My husband does great hamburgers, but I want to branch out and start grilling chicken and veggies especially during the hot summer months.

Erica & Pinot Grigio June 29, 2010 at 2:36 pm

Ahh! Grilling is my most favorite thing EVER. Seriously. And we live in a condo so we can’t have a full blown grill so I’ve been missing out. But this would be PERFECT for us!

I love everything grilled, seriously. Pineapple, chicken, hot dogs, ribs, burgers, anything. My husband knows how to make a mean, juicy bbq chicken breast! SO GOOD!

I need to go find a grill now…mmm!

Marie/Mer June 29, 2010 at 2:37 pm

I would love to win this grill. I haven’t had one for a few years now. The favorite thing I’ve had grilled was lobster tail…very easy and this makes them much more affordable that a restaurant.

Katherine Hawkins June 29, 2010 at 2:38 pm

LOVE grilled vegetables and grilled pineapple! yum!

Tanktop June 29, 2010 at 2:41 pm

I love grilled Indiana sweet corn!

debe June 29, 2010 at 2:43 pm

I wish I could say it was something exotic, but by far my favorite thing from the grill is one of my husband’s yummo steaks. He is the king of the grill. We generally add some grilled onions ans mushrooms for a topper!

BridgetteFL June 29, 2010 at 2:44 pm

Corn on the cob for sure. Especially if it burns just a little.

Jami Hardy June 29, 2010 at 2:44 pm

I would have to say lemon pepper pork chops sprayed with a mixture of vinegar and honey. Every time you turn it over you slather the mixture on top of it and continue to grill. Done correctly, it is so moist and sweet and perfect. Mmmm……

Christy June 29, 2010 at 2:48 pm

So cool of Crisco to offer this giveaway to all of us. I think my favorite grilled item is a big, fat juicy ribeye steak with asparagus on the side. I’m such a carnivore. :) Thanks Amanda!

SchuCo Designs June 29, 2010 at 2:52 pm

I would only be so lucky to win this wonderful grill! I love it best when my Man grills for me..then I get to stay out of the kitchen and patio! My all time favorite is his carne asada! Yum!

Katie B June 29, 2010 at 2:54 pm

veggies, chicken, steak, homemade hamburgers…ANYTHING on a grill tastes better in my opinion and we are in dire need of one around here so i hope i win!!

Cindy June 29, 2010 at 2:55 pm

I will go old school and say hot dogs. :)

Sarah June 29, 2010 at 2:57 pm

I can remember growing up eating the grilled chicken recipe that you mentioned in your posts! I used to request it on my birthday when I was a little girl! :) We love the grill in the summer! We enjoy anything from steaks, to chicken, but we are especially partial to shrimp lately!

Nancy Stoltenberg June 29, 2010 at 2:59 pm

We LOVE our son-in-law’s barbecued ribs. He makes them every time we visit, and we can’t get enough of them!

shannon abdollmohammadi June 29, 2010 at 3:01 pm

For sure I love Persian Grilled Chicken wings.

Tabitha June 29, 2010 at 3:03 pm

AAAAGGGGHHH! I need this. Best thing I ever ate off the grill…corn! So yummy. I am not sure what spices they used but it was the best thing I’ve ever eaten!!!!

Tammi June 29, 2010 at 3:05 pm

The best thing I have ever ate grilled – Smoked Chicken marinated in a mustard sauce. Unfortunately, I was never able to get the recipe, but I have never forgotten it. It was beyond awesome! Thanks! This reminds me to try to find a similar recipe to try this summer.

Marlis June 29, 2010 at 3:11 pm

grilled boneless ribs

Evelyn Anderson June 29, 2010 at 3:11 pm

The best thing I ever ate that was grilled was Korean short ribs. Just yummy!!

Ginger June 29, 2010 at 3:17 pm

My DH is the best bbq’er in the world (my humble opinion) and my most favorite thing is when he grills fish. My mouth is watering now just thinking of the halibut he is grilling for dinner tonight.

Helen June 29, 2010 at 3:18 pm

I could eat grilled steak, everyday!!

Allison F June 29, 2010 at 3:18 pm

My husband grills 1 inch think pork chops for me and I love them. most people over cook them but he does a great job on the grill!

Joy Page Manuel June 29, 2010 at 3:18 pm

My favorite grilled food is pork belly! In Filipino we call it ‘liempo’ (lee-yem-po). We normally season the pork belly slices in salt, pepper, minced garlic, a little bit of vinegar and soy sauce. After marination, it hits the grill and it’s perfect either by itself or eaten with rice!

Kerri June 29, 2010 at 3:19 pm

It would be a toss up between grilled shrimp and grill asparagus.

Sarah Kelly June 29, 2010 at 3:24 pm

Fun Fun Summer giveaway!!! I love beer can chicken (well I use diet coke) but a whole chicken with the right seasoning and a can of cola up his hinny is really to die for!! ; )

Jen Jones June 29, 2010 at 3:26 pm

Fresh sweet corn on the cob! Yum! It is always on the summer menu at our house!

Tara June 29, 2010 at 3:27 pm

I love the simple stuff – grilled hamburgers, hot dogs and steak! I don’t need anything fancy because they are good all alone!!

Angela H June 29, 2010 at 3:27 pm

Hey I think this is a great giveaway! The best thing I ever ate grilled has to be 1″ thick Rib Eye Steaks with baked Potato and a crispy Ceasar’s salad!!! Fabulous!!

Sarah June 29, 2010 at 3:28 pm

squash…mmmm it’s the best!

Dan Beverly June 29, 2010 at 3:32 pm

Laurel A June 29, 2010 at 3:40 pm

AHHHH! My husband and I registered for this grill when we got married and didn’t end up getting it. This would be so awesome!

Lara June 29, 2010 at 3:40 pm

Flank steak (the only kind of steak I’ll eat) marinated in pretty much anything!

Angela June 29, 2010 at 3:41 pm

I la-la-LOVE our Rio Grill restaurant. They grill up every kind of delicious meat and veggies imaginable. Bacon wrapped seasoned steak? YES PLEASE. But I think I love a fresh pepper, onion, zucchini shishkabob best. Mmmm.
