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!)
Hi Flori, I use a webber myself. They are very cunning in their design. The best barbecue I have ever owned – And I have owned plenty over the years.
I thought I recognized your grill in your kofta kabob post. I think it’s the same model. Do you have the cast iron griddle for yours? It’s great for delicate fish and for big piles of onions, peppers and mushrooms!
Sadly not. That option is not available to us in Ireland. I can manage the fish. the onions are a problem.
