Here's the blurb that stuck out for me:
quote:And she fell in love with the food. “Every time I see this perfect pork butt with bone sticking out, clean as a whistle... I think, ‘Look how beautiful it is.’” That’s a whole lot of love right there.
She’s been preaching the gospel of the grill for ten years and says barbecue is easier now because “it’s no longer about fire-building. That was messy, hard, a pain in the butt.” Now, with modern machinery, it’s all about flicking a switch. “If you can cook it, you can grill it,” she says, proving the point with a cookbook devoted entirely to pizza on the grill. The combination of flame, heat and rotating air intensifies caramelization and gives a nice crust that makes food taste better. “Plus, everyone thinks you’re a hero. It’s worked for the guys for a long time,” she cracks. “They made it look like it was so hard when all they’d do was go out there, hang with friends and drink the beer. The heat and the smoke do all the work.”
There's more at the link if you're interested, as well as a mention of the St. Francis Girls' Guide to Grilling, a free book (pdf download) on her "grill" knowledge. I'm curious to hear if any of my CS brethren have actually had the honor of being in the presence of the Queen of the Grill.
