    Re: 4th of July menus

    I'm still looking for a single electric burner like I used in the college dorm. I got a charcoal smoker for Christmas but I want to "convert" it to electric. Got the idea from Alton Brown on Good Eats.

    Grilled corn? In the fan house, that means shucking, putting on the grill, and brushing with a mix of olive oil, fresh cracked pepper, kosher salt and some chili powder.

    After the Peachtree Road Race 10K (misses & a couple of neighbors are part of the 55,000 field) is a small neighborhood soiree at our place in the morning. Then we're having some other friends over for dinner. There's a big honkin stake that's dry aging in our fridge.

    And when the meals are over, there's a s'mores cheesecake for dessert.

    A friend is coming over about noon and we're gonna' grill a couple of ribeyes (bone in, of course) with the afore mentioned grilled corn in the husk. Salad is sliced beefsteak tomato with anchovies or raw red onion rings, depending on your taste, hearts of palm and capers all drizzeled with extra virgin olive oil.

    We're gonna' watch some Reds baseball and/or Wimbeldon tennis and try to get in a little pool time. About 4:00 PM we'll head to the tennis club to play a mixed doubles 'hit and giggle' round robin tourney followed by grilled (greasy, yum) burgers and hot dogs. Then we trek up the hill to watch the fireworks presented by 'The Dunes' over the Newport Backbay. This is their 50th year of fireworks and should be extra spectacular. The tennis, food (including unlimited beverage of your choice ) and fireworks are $12.00 per person. Great deal if ya' ask me!

    Then, I'll try to shake my hangover the next morning so that I can go to work.

    Go about your life, start the grill and then put the wet corn on the grill still in the husks. They steam right then.

    Takes minimal effort and no foil no boiling... just grilling


    How long do you cook the corn this way? Directly over the heat, right?
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    Watermelon and pineapple, Deviled eggs, and cheesy scalloped potatoes to go with assorted grilled meats...

    And apple pie!

    Pack a small cooler with assorted snacks, buy 2 bottles of water from a vendor, then buy a hot dog at GABP. Settle in my seat (but bring a book to read in case of rain).

    I just fired up the smoker; it's a cheapy electric one I got for $20 at a garage sale but it works pretty well. I'm gonna do some "country ribs" and maybe some salmon. The most requested item is this corn salad.

    We're heading down to the Fr Qtr for the big "Fourth on the River". We travel light, so we'll pick up food there. We've been invited to a party on Royal St, so we'll spend some time there. Not sure where we'll catch the fireworks, tho.

    Ham, potato salad, baked beans, chocolate pie and some burgers on the grill when we get tired of the ham.

    I was BAD... was too hungry before the game - so I went to McAlister's Deli and got a club and ate it there - but I did finish off my snacks at the game...

    I had grilled brats and ribeyes and fresh green beans. Had a brat for lunch and a ribeye for supper. In between was large quantities of watermelon. My wife will be home around 11:30. I saved her a ribeye and half the watermelon, but she'll probably be too tired to eat anything before going to bed.
