I was planning steaks on the grill and my burger entry as appetizers, but.. well.. the regulator on the grill frosted over and looked like it was emitting gas. So I shut it down and we cooked the steaks indoors in the grill pan and no appetizers at all.

I think the regulator on the grill may have failed. I did just get the tank refilled today and I guess it could have gotten overfilled but I can't see how. The grill is over 10 years old so .... I guess it is time to get a new grill.

Did you spray it with soap bubbles to pinpoint the leak? Let us know what the problem was, just so us other gassers know. Sounds like it could be a safety concern unless it was just excess gas bleeding out.

No I didn't. I just uncoupled the tank. If it is the hoses and or the regulator, it is probably just better to get a new grill. I also need new hanging racks and a new heat shield so at that point I'm better off getting a new one. This has served us well for over 10 years now.

Everyone's dinners sound so yummy!

We had beef ribs that I rubbed, slow cooked on the BBQ and sauced up within an inch of their lives. A very garlicky caesar salad and baked potatoes rounded things out a bit. I used up a zucchini, onion, a PILE of mushrooms and a tomato in a quick fry up to go along side the ribs. We ate til we nearly burst with no room for dessert. I think there might be ice cream in our future...FAR in the future.

I hope the allergies clear up soon. Is the headache maybe allergy related? My DH gets sinus headaches when there is a lot of pollen in the air.

We went to a resort in the mountains this weekend. I bought a whackload of cheeses, cold cuts, breads, etc. We had that as a six hour brunch yesterday. We're continuing that brunch as our supper tonight.

uncle bob, your gumbo looks outstanding!!! i have to look into getting some filet.

very nice once again, ppt.

sorry you're not feeling well, mofet. hope the mac-n-cheese helps out.

and alix is right about everyone's dinners. i'd like to have a transporter to be able to quickly get to everyone's house to try a plate of each.

i didn't get around to preparing the trout, so i just grilled another plate of sweet baby ray's sauced chicken legs.
