What's Your Favorite Thing to Throw on the Summertime Grill

Fillets from Carolina Grass Fed Beef. If you have a really good steak, you don’t have to slather it with anything. And people are always surprised when I say so: “Oh my God, I thought she was a vegetarian.”

I just love smoking ribs. Let me tell you something, I carry them all over town and give them to people, whether they like ‘em or not. That’s what I do during the blueberry season, throw something on the smoker during u-pick and then I carry supper home.

We like to experiment in my house. In summer, we throw everything on the grill. My favorite thing is when jalapeños are in season. The smokiness from the grill mellows out that bitter heat.

Heidi: We just cooked a whole pig that we raised. In the last week of life, we feed them nothing but cake.
Joe: You’d be surprised how much a pig likes country ham.

Late summer, when the tomatoes are rounding up, I toast some baguettes on the grill and top them with mozzarella and basil and chopped tomatoes for homemade bruschetta. Gives it a little smoky flavor.
