Last spring after much soul searching (I’ve been as true to my charcoal as I was to PCs for years before making the switch to MAC) I purchased a Weber Q220 with the stand so that it could use a full size tank. It has a split grill so I also bought the cast iron flattop tha can replace one side. I love it for a number of reasons. not least is how well the flat top works for fish and piles of sliced onions & peppers.
Last night I cooked a beautiful piece of snapper and made a salad, but this morning I realized that there was some asparagus that I meant to grill too. Since it is so easy to do I fired the grill up and cooked the asparagus along with a few mushrooms that were in the crisper drawer for good measure.
I’ll add some to a salad for lunch and there will still be some for a quick dinner after ballet: maybe an omelet.
Oddly, since I live in Southern California and my grill is actually under an overhang I don’t grill much during the winter. In the summer I light the grill more than the stove (certainly more than the oven!)
