You know, bbq doesn’t have to be all about steaks and chops and rotisserie cooking and all that fancy stuff. Sometimes, getting back to basics is a nice treat. On Sunday, I decided to do what I consider “Kid Food”…..burgers, hot dogs, beanie weenies and mac n cheese. Needless to say, our 16 yo DS was tickled pink! LOL
I had 1 1/2 lbs ground chuck and 2 packs of hotdogs, one regular bun length and one all beef. The Mac N Cheese was the old faithful, Kraft and the beanie weenies were made with pork and beans, 3 weenies I cooked in an iron skillet and sliced about 1/2 inch thick, some catsup, mustard, grape jelly, salt and pepper, brown sugar all added till it tasted right. 🙂 Yeah, I’m not real big on official measures when I’m cooking.
and then set it up for indirect cooking with the coals against the back of the WS. I cooked the burgers at about 250 for 10 minutes, flipped them and basted with melted butter, cooked another 10 minutes, flipped and basted again and put on the hot dogs. I cooked everybody for another 10 minutes, then took off the burgers, slapped a slice of cheese on 2 of them cuz I like cheeseburgers, finished the hot dogs directly over the coals, moved them back to indirect and started toasting up the buns. It looked like this toward the end:
A burger dressed with lettuce, tomato,onion, mayo and mustard (cheese burger for me), a hot dog with mayo, mustard and catsup, a big spoon of beanie weenies, and a nice helping of Mac N Cheese. Truly, a meal fit for a kid……no matter how old they are! LOL
Enjoy doing it your way! Then it’s bbq!
