I’ve frequently used this space on the internet to soapbox about things that are mostly unimportant to everyone else, the most prevalent of which is the difference between a cookout and barbeque (a cookout is when you cook foods like hotdogs, hamburgers, grilled chicken outdoors. Barbeque is a noun). It’s been my mission over the past so many years in Maryland to stop people calling making hotdogs a “barbeque.” It’s just not. It’s a cookout.
The moral of the story, of course, is that tomorrow is my birthday and I’m having a cookout. A real life, hamburgers and sausages on the grill, cookout. With beer sangria and friends and family and hot July weather and sprinklers on and fun. I’m so excited, I can’t wait to grill everything from potato chips to atomic sausage. Happy July!
Grilled Potato Chips
3-6 yukon gold potatoes
Salt & Pepper
Slice your potatoes into 1/4″ chips. Brush olive oil on both sides and sprinkle with salt & pepper. Grill 2-3 minutes on each side, so crispy but not overcooked. Enjoy!
