Barbecue stuff

Butts, just wondering if you've ever tried Avocado on the barbie?  Just thinking it might be a nice thing to grill once sliced in half and the stone removed.  I may try it and report back if you haven't already tried it.

Poof.

It will have to be unripe or else it'll turn to mush. Good luck with it, I've only ever eaten it raw.

I was thinking about this last night actually and I can't see how an avocado would benefit from grilling. It has no flavour as such and is of a texture that wouldn't stand the heat - some fruit, like the pineapple, seem to firm up a bit when put in contact with heat but the avocado has no fibre as such.

Best whizz it into a creamy dip with 3 spring onions, a handful of fresh coriander, 1 tbsp each of red wine vinegar and EV olive oil, 200ml sour cream and plenty of salt and pepper.

Or combine it with a ripe mango, red onion, red chilli and stir in plenty of lime juice, EV olive oil, salt, pepper, red wine vinegar and some chopped fresh mint for a tangy Avocado Mango salsa.

I've put bananas on the BBQ but how do you cook pineapple on there?

It has to be very fresh.

Slice it into thick rounds then dip the rounds first into coconut cream so it's thickly coated and then into soft brown sugar flavoured with ground cinammon. They need to be coated all over.

Then place on a medium grill (as it's dying down is good) and then leave for about 4-5 minutes until they have crisped up on the underside, then flip over and do the same on the other side. Try not to move them more than once.

They go nicely with vanilla ice cream.

I love it when Butts talks dirty.

Not out of the ordinary, but I put whole onions in tin foil and lob mine onto the Weber.

I'm a cheap bastard, so I always burn wood from the garden - crab apple seems to be the best of the bunch for flavour.

That would just dribble through the bars Butts.

Oh yes, anointed in balsamic vinegar with a couple of cloves of garlic and some thyme/rosemary.

When my kids were little I used to strike up the barb and do bacon and eggs and beans ( in pans but on the barbie) they loved it.

I get heat for the wok I just can't generate from the gas hob, straight on the coals it really comes into its own and the food has no chance of stewing or steaming, tastes so much better.

The people to the side have two young girls and as I was out there with the wok recently I overheard one of them say to her dad 'are they having a barbecue AGAIN?' he replied 'No he's doing a Chinese'.
