Gas Grills, 5 Tasty Treats that can be made on a Gas Grill | Sterling, VA

5 Tasty Treats that can be made on a Gas Grill

Purists of taste will often tell you that you need a charcoal grill to achieve a true grilled flavor. But that is not always completely honest. Owners of gas grills can get much the same flavor, burn pattern, and taste as a charcoal unit.Here are some quick flavor smacking treats for your outdoor gas grill.

Caution, only adults should use gas grills.

1. S'mores, it is true that s'mores are best done over a camp fire. But a gas grill will work much the same. Provided you don't loose your marshmallow off the metal grill fork you can hold it just above the hot surface and you can get a fantastic brown marshmallow. Don't forget to get it into the gram cracker and chocolate sandwich while its hot. Or the chocolate wont melt.

2. For a healthy snack or great side dish at a pick nick grill some asparagus. Take the asparagus and soak them in water for about a half hour so they don't burn. Then just lay them on the metal rack till they brown and darken a bit. If you want a really tasty way, boil them a bit to soften them further and grill them on the top rack. They will take longer but the flavor will really pop.

3. It is said that, us Americans cook brussel sprouts wrong. This funny fact can actually be proven when you grill them. cut each in half and rub the open side with garlic butter. Be sure that with any veggie you soak it in water for 30 min prior to grilling so it does not burn. When you grill them do so on the top rack. They will come out with a surprising flavor. Not to spoil the fun but it wont taste like a brussel sprout the way you may know them.

4. You can also grill corn on the cob. Boil it until it is nearly cooked them grill it for a little while. You want a few dark lines all over it. This will give it a deep almost smokey flavor. You will also bring out some of the internal flavors and juices making it rather tasty.

5. For the grand finale. You can make a cake on your grill. Just heat the inside of the grill to whatever your temperature needs to be according to the recipe and put the oven safe pan of your choice inside. Most grills can get very hot so a grill thermometer will be handy for this one. You will get a slightly different flavor to your cake than what you are used to. But wherever you grill you now know you can make a cake. Nothing says awesome like a fresh baked cake at a cook out.

There are literally thousands of other ideas. Try a few of your own out and see what work for you. Your gas grill does not have to be confined to a life of cooking meat. Unleash its true power and don't bother heating your entire house up to cook. Its summer time, get out side and try some new ideas.
