My boss had me order a grill

We use an Amex card in the office which earns us points. I was talking with my boss the other day and the subject of grilling came up. We decided it would be a lot of fun if we got a grill and cooked out once a week. He checked with the landlord to see if there were any issues with us doing this and found out that there were none, so he gave me the go ahead.

I just ordered this Weber grill. Now I will have to start thinking of good recipes to impress them with.

Romaine cut in half - before you grill it you slather with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Once it's off the grill and plated top with whatever - you can make a Caesar salad dressing, or a vinaigrette and top with feta, red onions, tomatoes, and cucumbers. Grilling brings out this wonderful flavor!!!!

Romaine cooked in a wood-fired pizza oven is the best but I don't have one of those

verrrry nice! I have some great recipes from when I used to teach grilling classes that I'll be happy to send you, if you like.

Great grilling books are (imho): the one Jamie Purviance wrote for Weber; Chris Schlesinger's "The Thrill of the Grill," and "Taming the Flame," by Elizabeth Karmel.

I will never turn down any recipes ChefJune! Thanks!

I took a grilling class from a local BBQ restaurant owner who has been winning award after award after award. I have about 20 recipes from him that I have been loving, but I am always ready for some new ones!

Pretty good calzone and, for the more accomplished, pizza can be baked in a Weber charcoal grill, especially is you use real charcoal instead of briquettes.

GB - you lucky duck - now you'll get paid for cooking unless your boss reads this first!

He didn't tell GB yet, but the Boss invited his friends and family.

"GB, I want mine well done."
"GB, make mine medium, but crispy"
"GB, make mine medium, but not too medium....you know what I mean."
"GB, I don't eat meat."
