Rachael Ray has a recipe for grilled tuna served over grilled romaine that's really good. She serves it topped with bleu cheese salad dressing, which DH likes; I prefer Italian dressing.

I once used my gas grill to strip the seasoning off of a carbon steel wok so I could redo it.

I ran it full blast (lid closed) until the wok was clean.

We grill beets frequently, they are so good! We throw everything on the grill for an experiment most nights. Why waste hot coals? Our last effort was watermelon, it was not bad! A big tip is to clean/scrape the grill after any meat cooking :)

That's what I've done too, just experiment when you're grilling, particularly if you're grilling vegetables too. Go ahead and clean out those odd bits of vegetables you've been saving in the refrigerator, try them. Worst that can happen is that you'll taste them and discard them if they're not good. Best case is that you might find something new that tastes good grilled.

If you're grilling a whole chicken cut up, grill the giblets too. If nothing else they make good snacks for the grilling chef while he/she is minding the chicken. (Livers cook quickly, just add a bit of salt and they make nice snacks.)

Tater tots are better on the grill. You just need some foil or a grill pan so the don't stick or fall through.

I also like to toss some rosemary branches into the fire or on the lower grates to smoke a bit.

Great with Buttermailk dressing (& bacon, if you're so inclined).

We have an artichoke that just keeps producing, so my daughter and I took some cut them in half after steaming then put them in a marinade of white balsamic,crushed garlic, shallots finely minced, fresh shopped parsley, salt and pepper with a touch of Tabasco and Worchestershire. let them marinate overnight in the refrigerator. then put them on a med grill let them get lightly blackened then served them up. How good were they? They were really good. Planning a feast this weekend.

Grilled eggplant parmesan pizza & grilled caesar salad pizzas are great on the grill.

When i get more practice with my indoor grills...

Grilled (shrimp) panzanella salad (on skewers) is on the list.
