    I figure if I keep pretending it's spring old man winter will give up and let me have spring. I've been firing up the Weber with lump charcoal for a couple of weeks now, tonight was BBQ chicken (marinated in zesty Italian dressing this time), potato salad, garden salad, and big glass of milk for dinner. Wish there was good corn on the cob, ah well that will have to wait a few more months.

    Sheesh! (But that's another thread...)

    I'm glad you mentioned "lump charcoal", though. Too many people use charcoal briquettes, which are 90% coal. Real wood charcoal is the only way to go. I've often wished there was an easy way to make your own charcoal. As matter of fact, here's a site that offers real wood, chips and pellets for REAL smoky flavor. I bought a "sampler" from them a few years ago that included a pound of pellets from each of 5 different woods. They work great in a smoker box on the gas grill, as well as the charcoal grill.

    thanks for the link, my sister spent some time in Sudan and Kenya and says from the time you get there you all you can smell is burning wood, she says lots of the world's charcoal comes from that area

    We lived in Turkey for 3 1/2 years, and grilled foods is a Turkish specialty. It got a little awkward sometimes when we couldn't identify what we were eating, but it usually tasted good when cooked over charcoal! LOL!

    This same sister spent a month trying to adopt a girl from Pakistan two years ago, she had to hide in a room for days at a time, a young boy would bring her food to eat once a day, he didn't speak English. One night he brought her what appeared to be chicken over rice, everything was over rice. She tasted it, thought it had a strange texture, made her arms flap up and down, pointed at the plate and said "bock, bock?" he shook his head and replied "meow, she didn't eat meat for a month.

    Good catch Bruce. The mojitos got to me and spell check doesn't work for Spanish. It was Ropa Vieja, a shredded beef specialty of the restaurtant. Nice here, headed out for a power walk then I see a lounge chair at the pool and a good book in my future! And the GPS shows 4 caches within a half mile. The descriptions are in Spanish. Is there a way to translate them to English at geocaching.com?
    Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason.

    Sheesh! I know Ropa Vieja! They serve it in a bun, right? Around here it's known as a hamburger!
