Inspirations for Grilling
by Cotton Clark
Inspirations. We all have them. I was inspired to cooking from a variety of sources, going all the way back to my grandmother in Odessa, TX, who cooked for my cowboy grandfather and who made yummy homemade yeast rolls. In high school, the family moved to San Antonio, and I was inspired by none other than Lucas Postolos, famed owner and general manager of the San Francisco Steakhouse. I started as a busboy, but graduated to preparing flaming desserts tableside, famous New Orleans classics like Crepes Suzette, Strawberries Flambé, Bananas Foster, and Cherries Jubilee.
(Yes, we prepared them right in front of the customer back then, and it was quite the show replete with a few unexpected pyrotechnic moments. That’s what happens when you use 151-proof rum to light it! Alas, restaurants hide their preparation in the kitchen nowadays! Me?… I abide by a “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy myself!)
Later on, my in-laws bequeathed an old tired and worn-out Arkla gas grill, yet for Father’s Day my then young sons gave me my current Weber Genesis. That was nearly 15 years ago and it’s still cooking like a champ!
Now, I have a ceramic cooker as well, and I find inspirations for my cooking fetish from a variety of sources. BuzzFeed with its 45-second “Tasty!… Oh YES!” is a favorite. Most often, their chefs prepare goodies in the oven, yet anything done in an oven can be prepared in a ceramic cooker like the Big Green Egg, too. Can you say, HELLO?! Other YouTube and blogging favorites are Chef John at Food Wishes, America’s Test Kitchens, Stoked on Smoke, Tessa Arias at Handle the Heat, Kaleb Wyse at The Gray Boxwood, and last but not least Jesse Pryles, an Australian lass who now lives in Austin and describes herself as a Professional Hardcore Carnivore! Ahhh… my kinda of gal!
So, come on by Jeff’s Backyard and let us inspire you with your backyard cooking desires.
