I think Snip is referring to a broiler when she says grill
Thanks GG I don't use recipes, I cook by taste.
Yes I mean broiler, the grill in your oven We call the one outside a braai (South African remember!)

Ok, I have done jennyema’s and snip’s recipes. Some things:

I will have to have portions listed for any recipes I do. I realize some can do by taste but I am not there yet.

So, by grill you mean oven. Seems like you meant two different things after reading the above. Anyway, I know now though. I cooked them on the stove because I was confused by what you meant. I don’t think it turned out that well but it was still edible. This refers to the recipes for the pork belly and the chicken. Btw, they both had very black sections on them, is it ok to eat those areas? I have been eating them already but my gf said I am going to get cancer from eating them. I was thinking it is the same thing as eating campfire meat when one is cooking the meat on a stick directly in an open fire. Correct?

The polenta recipe I now see was supposed to be a polenta pizza with pork belly toppings, right? That was an ok dish, I guess. But the pumpkin fritters rolled in the cinnamon sugar was great!

If you mean broiler in my oven then how was I supposed to cook it? The broiler settings on my oven only list “High” and “Low”...?

Sorry about the confusion. I'm South African. We call a broiler a grill and an outside grill a braai.
I did mean grill in the oven.

It's ok, snip. I am grateful for the recipes. :)

1. How was I supposed to cook it though? The broiler settings on my oven only list “High” and “Low”...?

2. What about the black sections on the food I cooked?

The pork I would say is best done on low. So you don't burn it before it's cooked through.

The polenta bake is already cooked when you put it under the broiler so just brown the cheese topping on high.

Not sure what black sections you are talking about? If it's something you made has burned a bit you could just cut the black bits off if the rest is not bitter.
