As the smell of the neighbor’s Matchlight drifts through the window, moves me to write of how to grill without imparting the taste of petrochemicals to your burger.
1) A grill. We have a Weber kettle style grill. While more expensive than other, it is worth the investment. They lasts for years (ours spends the off season under a cover) and replacement parts can be ordered on-line.
2) Hardwood charcoal – Unlike the briquets (invented by Henry Ford, of all people) used in thousands of suburban bar-b-ques of yesteryear, hardwood charcoal is easy to light, burns fast and hot, and actually smells good. Our local hardware store stocks Cowboy Charcoal.
3) A Chimney Starter – Charcoal goes in the top, a sheet of newspaper goes in the bottom. Light a match, set the newspaper on fire. Eight minutes later pour the charcoal out, and you’re cooking.
