It was hot--we postponed girls' night until tomorrow--I put in a 12-hour day and didn't think I'd be very good company, but since I was in charge of the drinks for GN, I had to feed myself. Because I had steak and pasta salad for lunch at 9:30 a.m., and it was HOT, I didn't think I'd be hungry. I was. Sorta fajitas using the last 2 wraps from the picnic, pepper steak, grilled peppers, onions, hot peppers, and topped with cheese. Since I'm leaving on Thursday, I didn't want to open another jar of homemade salsa. I'm trying to empy the fridge (gave up on the freezer).

The leftover picnic wraps/fajitas were good (or at least the dogs thought the ps I dropped on the "rolly cart" between the stove and the counter was worth the wait). I zapped the wraps in the microwave for about 10 seconds. Sorry. I can't find the camera (or the calling card, or the phone...I know the phone has a dummy button--but I can't find that manual either).

I had to turn my cheeseburger into a patty melt. The bun was too small.

DH and I celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary at a local "supper club", decor a la 1968. Salad bar, full fat mayo stuff, and probably the best beef-barley soup evah!

We split a rare blackened tuna steak along with a loaded baked potato. They gave us two Rob Roys on the house. Something nice about living in a small town.

I always make mine with 3 cheeses so it doesn't sound unusual to me :)
We just call it mac 'n cheese here. Our mac 'n cheese always contains ground beef or sausages!

Next time I'll only light the rear burner on low and see what happens. I had all 3 burners on low this time and had the balls all along the edge of the grill. If I only use the rear burner and still place the balls along the front edge I think they will do better. Because they cooked so fast and charred, I didn't get to add the glaze so we just dipped them in SBR's sauce.
Sounds like you have a Weber. The main reason I went with a Ducane was their burner configuration. The Ducane gave me more room for indirect grilling than a comparative Weber.
Anything you read that gets BBQ'd, or smoked, figure to do your grilling on indirect heat. But now you know that You'll probably have to give them a turn doing them with just the back burner lit, but that should work better for you. You might even be able to get buy with the front and rear burner on low... whatever gives you a grill temp below 300F.

I think the unusual part was mixing a little sauce in with the cheeses. Baked ziti here, the cheeses are usually left plain.
