Summer Grilling Series 1
« on: July 25, 2018, 10:10:36 AM »

The last thing anyone wants to do outdoors in the humid, hot weather is cook over a big fire. This summer grilling series will highlight things that are quick to cook over a small fire or bio/hobo stove.

Nothing seems more summer ?grill worthy? than corn on the cob! After a quick soak in the river, I started a cook fire and used a small grill in conjuction with hot coals for the cooking.




One corn in the coals, one on the grill. Two different textures, both good. Corn done out of the husk, on the grill, dries out faster on the plate.

I saved the inside of the corn after shucking and the husks. They dried in the sun and a day later they were great for tinder.

Oil first?


Chicken stir fry


I was being watched


Stir fry cooks pretty fast when the temperature is high, but olive oil will burn off at high temperatures. It cooks fast, so less time over a hot fire in the summer.

That stir fry looks pretty tasty.  I used a small wok over coals to cook stir fry.  I worked well and, as you mention, stir fry cooks fairly quickly.

I've never thought of tying corn silks for a tinder bundle, but I will now. :cheers:

Me too.  And I can see Kelly's eye roll as I dry it out.
