How about mini grilled pizzas? Break small portions of store bought pizza dough into balls, flatten with your hand and brush both sides with olive oil. Grill them, directly over the coals, flipping so both sides cook without one side burning. When you flip it, put the grated cheese and fresh tomato slices on top. The heat from just being over the coals will melt the cheese.

Cut and serve.

That's a good idea but only halve the veggies or you'll be standing there for 2 hours trying to turn those little pieces. Grill large pieces (half works best) then cut to final size on a board.

Edit: Oh, and leave the root end intact on the onion.

Good thoughts, Jeeks, thanks.

You can also put wooden skewers through the onion slices, to keep them from falling apart when you turn or remove them. Insert two skewers in parallel through two onion slices, about 1/3 and 2/3 of the way across the slices.

Yo! Check it out!! Right here!!

Boil up some "Swimps" at your house...take them to the Q nice and cold...ready to peel and eat.... Just enough for an appy...not an 'all you can eat' deal.....take a little sauce along too...Spicy boiled swimps go good with BYOB, beer, and BBQ smoke!

Have Fun!!

my family does fresh ears of corn on the cob on the grill....it's very tasty and sweet. Just pull the husk back(don't pull it off though) and clean out the silk, then rub with butter and sprinkle with smoked paprika and/or cayenne pepper for a lilttle spice. Cover back up with the husks and wrap in foil. Add to the grill with your meat and let it smoke through for about 15 to 20 minutes....delish!
