Grill mysteries...

We have this thing at our house called Char Broil. It looks like this...

the beast
Kinda plain looking, not too handsome, but it does something amazing...

You put meat and stuff in it and it comes out looking like this...

Grilled Steak, Grilled Portabello Mushroom, Steak sauce and Spinach salad

Mom seems to know how to use it and she makes it look so easy...but I can't figure it out??

I took my new chicken buddy that Sophie sent me out to meet Char Broil.

I told him you just turn some knobby thing here and click some button and then put the food in. He got SUPER uncomfortable and BEGGED me to take him back in the house. I was like, what is your problem chicken dude...

Then he showed me this...

Smoky Grilled Butterflied Chicken
UHH woops, sorry dude. Mom said I need to stay away from the grill and work on my sensitivity to my edible friends.

You don't need sensitivity training, man! Your chicken dude just needs a little time to toughen up, that's all. (And what a lovely chicken dude he is.)

By the way, very cool that Ernest's mama stopped by just to see you (and Tanner). You know, I bet that's REALLY why she went to AZ, and that work stuff was just an excuse.

Goober love,

I almost passed out from those foodable photos. I can't believe you have your own grill. I like the way you pretend you can't use it so that you force mom to be your food slave.

Oh my word. A metal box that makes meat appear all juicy and delicious? Where do you find those? Did an alien come down and deliver it? I've never SEEN one of those!!

We have something called an "oven" (or "back! back! away!") but any time mom puts meat in there it comes out all black and shriveled. Obviously those box thing are better.

Well all we can say is that it looks warm and delicious at your house and it is colder than a poopsicle here which is what comes out of us.

Aw chicken dude! Poor guy. Tell him you only eat turkey.

My ma ape wants to eat those porto-bell-os on that plate (that's what they are, right?). She says she could eat grilled portos every day. She's weird.

I like your charbroil contraption. I don't blame you for dropping that chicken dude for that wonderful charbroil stuff! I had a chicken dude and bit his face off. He went away on his own.

Hugs, Kodak

Woops! hehe, I can see why your chicken friend was uncomfortable around the charbroiler. We have one that looks similar to your's but ours has a HUGE cooking area. Mom wants to bbq a turkey sometime just because she says she can. BUT, Mom's food never comes out looking as good. Since it's outside Mom usually forgets about it and then I get lots of pieces of whatever was cooked. That's why Dad is usually the one that cooks on it.
PS Mom is very jealous you have a Bass Pro so close. The nearest one to us is a 3 hour drive.
