my first grill was actually a small backpacking grill. just a grate with fold out legs. it was used over the coals of a campfire.

the first thing i ever made on it was either beef and veggie kebabs or marinated london broil.

man, i haven't thought of those kebabs in years. my old gf made them out of chuck cubes, green peppers, onions, cherry tomatoes, and beer soaked mushrooms, and we'd bring them on backpacking or canoeing trips upstate ny.

great old memories. good thread, gw. thanks.

The first grill I cooked on was dad's grill. No idea what kind it actually was or what I cooked on it. It was probably a charcoal grill of some sort and I probably cooked marshmallows or hot dogs on a stick held over top of it. First grill of my own was a little, square, portable charcoal grill and the hubby and I cooked steaks and brats to go with the rest of our picnic dinner.

My first grill was a bitchin' cool cooking pit we made for summer camp in Boy Scouts.
It had an air supply tunnel and fit the old expanded metal sheet we found. Cooked hot and true, and never was able to make as successful a pit again.

My first TRUE grill was a tabletop gas grill that used the 2 pound bottles...
a freebie from Marlboro, LOL! Ribs, burgers, corn, foil package meals... cooked
everything on it, got pretty good at indirect cooking with it too. Aside from cooking
stuff in batches, I loved that thing.

My wife is a Croatian grilling purist,this is the only type they use, she will not use my equipment as she thinks using charcoal is for amateurs
She lights her fire using seasoned hard wood on the concrete yard, when it dies down she places the grill on top of the embers.
The results on fish are fantastic and her cevapcici (kofta kebabs) are to die for.

Now that is a purist's grill
As is BT's camping grill. I've still got my fold out grate that I used when camping. And that was probably the first grill that I purchased, but I don't really remember for sure, or what was cooked on it the first time.
