Drill and Grill, Surf and Turf
When it comes to grilling, there’s a tendency to eschew anything that involves plates. The usual suspects (hot dogs, burgers and kebabs) are fine for finger-foodin’ it—especially if you need to have one hand free for drinking, smoking, tossing a Frisbee or getting into a fistfight—but sometimes it’s worth splurging on a stack of paper plates.
Here, we prepared an old surf and “turf” favorite: cedar plank-smoked salmon encrusted with herbs. To round it out, we whipped up a far-from-usual suspect for a side dish. Instead of a baked potato, we par-boiled baby taters, drilled holes in them, marinated them overnight and threw them on the barbie. Hail Weber!
