Warning, the following may be controversial. I tell it because it works, and my kids are proof.

A unique use for the grill. Just as my munchkins started to crawl, I fired up the Webber Smokey Joe until it was as hot as it would get. I then picked up teh child, and placed his or her little hand in mine, and moved it close enough to the bunrining embers that it was uncomfortable, but not yet dangerous. I then pulled both of our hands away and said firmly, "Hot!"). I repeated the process two more times. None of my children ever reached for anything that could burn them. I simply pointed to whatever could be dangerous and said "HOT!) I never pointed at something that wasn't hot and told them that it was. They knew what hot meant, and stayed away. A moment of discomfort saved them from the possibility of excruciating pain.

I've had my share of burns, some minor, one major. I didn't want my kids to have to go through that. The method worked. It seems that the Barbecues are for more than just cooking food.

Grilled cornbread cooked in a cabbage

I came up with a pretty good one the other night. I was talking with someone about cornbread...cast iron vs Glass to cook it in. I am firmly in the cast iron camp HOWEVER..I decided to come up with in case I wanted cornbread and did not have a glass pan, an oven, or a Cast iron skillet .
I smoked a cabbage filled with my cornbread mixture...Had to go a little light on the milk to get it to set up right but it turned out great. Still tweaking it....had a great smoked flavor to it...

Just a green cabbage ..and of course it was hollowed out a bit . Nothing special to the it .Just prep the cabbage and fill it with your usual cornbread recipe ..just use a little less milk or whatever liquid you make yours with. The cabbage does not conduct the heat as well so it is harder to get the cornbread to set with a normal mix. Cook over indirect heat or smoke it ..start it early in the days cooking cause it takes a while.
