IMBB? 6 - Grillers (and Barbecuers) Delight

We are very pleased to announce that Too Many Chefs is hosting the next edition of Is My Blog Burning?

This monthly event bringing bloggers around the world together in the pursuit of great cuisine was begun by Alberto over at the excellent Il Forno blog. In the past few months we have sipped delicious soups from Alberto's initial IMBB, supped on tasty Tartines at Chocolate & Zucchini, danced through a Cake Walk at Renee's Shiokadelicious, went Around the World in a Bowl of Rice at Chez Pim's, and dished up a fishy Catch of the Day at Wena's mum-mum.

On July 18th, IMBB? will visit the world of Barbecuing and Grilling for the Grillers Delight. Celebrate the summer (or defy the Winter, you Antipodeans) by getting out and slapping some delicious dinners on the barby. Don't have a grill? Then use a grill pan indoors, or simply prepare a barbecued item or a grilled style item. If it's got barbecue sauce or grill marks on it, we want to sample it.

You do NOT have to be a food blogger to participate. All bloggers are welcome. In fact, non-bloggers are wecome as well! If you do not have a blog, but have some barbecue or grill secrets you're dying to share, then send them to us at toomanychefs@gmail.com and we'll be happy to post an entry for you. Please note that email address is different from our regular e-mail address.

If you'd like to participate, post your entry on Sunday, July18th. It does not have to be prepared on July 18th, but it must be posted on that day. Send an e-mail to the TMC gang at toomanychefs@gmail.com to let us know you've got an entry up and we'll be sure to feature it in the event summary the next day.

So have lots of fun coming up with some lovely grilled/barbecued delights and just remember that, as the wise man with no eyebrows once said, "There really is such a thing as too much lighter fluid."

Sounds like great fun! Do you mean July 18?

Posted by Lynda on July 5, 2004 at 8:08 AM

Yes, yes I did. Just goes to show you one shouldn't post late at night... Thanks for catching that.

Posted by Barrett on July 5, 2004 at 8:32 AM

Coool! Count me in!!

Posted by Kate on July 5, 2004 at 4:43 PM

Sounds like fun. Melissa is murmuring things about grilled shrimp now that she's heard your idea.


Posted by Derrick Schneider on July 5, 2004 at 5:48 PM

Great idea! I can't wait!

Posted by Irene on July 5, 2004 at 8:12 PM

Now this is a theme Foodgoat won't be able to pass up! :)

Posted by ladygoat on July 5, 2004 at 9:39 PM

FINALLY an IMBB that I'll not only be able to participate in...but one that is perfect for my grilling self! I'm in!

Posted by LT on July 6, 2004 at 3:23 PM

I'll be wearing my antipodean beanie and ugg boots for this one.

Posted by anthony on July 6, 2004 at 6:41 PM

Whoops, should be here. Hello to Jeanne though.

Posted by anthony on July 6, 2004 at 6:44 PM

If I don't have a barbie and don't own a grill pan (we are renting and moving around minimalist apartments right now) and don't fancy barbeque sauce, what would qualify? Say if I baked something that was prepared for a BBQ, would that do?
Thanks muchos!

Posted by Theresa on July 7, 2004 at 11:58 AM

Derrick (and Melissa), Irene, ladygoat, LT, and Anthony we are looking forward to seeing your entries!

Theresa - I think we could strrrretch the theme a little. You could always paint little grill marks on the final dish.

Posted by barrett on July 7, 2004 at 12:42 PM

I'll try this time !! IMBB is such a gorgeous idea!!!

Posted by comidademama on July 8, 2004 at 1:00 AM

Just to add my two cents to Theresa's question: I would think that you could prepare something to accompany a barbecue (salads, drinks, sauces, side dish, etc.) and that would be fine! Good luck with the move!

Posted by Meg in Paris on July 8, 2004 at 5:40 AM

Count me in, please. This will be my first IMBB -- I'm so nervous! I'm not really much of a griller -- my boyfriend is the charcoal king of our house -- but maybe this "challenge" will abate some of my grilling fears. =)

Posted by Kelli on July 8, 2004 at 9:44 AM

How appropos! I just finished a grilling course and what could be better??? A grilling graduation party!!! Absent from blogging for far too long, but not from cooking.... these blog burning events keep me connected and sane!!! But, happily, my new biz is about to be launched....
p.s. grilled phenom tuna burgers the other night and last night... duck breast.... Mmmmmm. You gotta love a course that REQUIRES cooking!

Posted by Donna in Harrisburg on July 9, 2004 at 7:09 AM

Backyard Grub is all about grilling! Count me in! Woo-hoo!

Posted by Shaun on July 9, 2004 at 1:39 PM

p.s. - "about" as in loves. Not as in content of the weblog...!

Posted by Shaun on July 9, 2004 at 5:59 PM

Kelli, don't worry about "not much of a griller" - I'm not. I also tend to do much simpler things than many of the amazingly talented and energetic cooks ;-). But it's fun to see what everyone does.

I will have an entry ready - will not be able to grill that weekend, and forgot to take a pic of the tri-tip I did last night, but I will have recipes.

Posted by Charlotte on July 10, 2004 at 11:00 AM

Thanks Barrett and Meg - be it whacking up some accompaniment or painting stripes on meat, I'll be there....at least in spirit! ;)

Posted by Theresa on July 11, 2004 at 1:55 AM

ARRRGGGHHH the weather is so miserable and rainy , seems there is no way --even to dare-- to think about a BBQ ^____^

Posted by comidademama on July 11, 2004 at 3:44 AM

Comidademama - If you don't have a partner grab a wooden chair. Or rather, if you don't have sunshine "grill" indoors. I think my own entry may end up being a grill pan treat . We'd love to have you post an entry!

Kelli - every King needs a Queen, right? This is your chance to be the Queen of the 'Q.

Donna in Harrisburg - very exciting! I hope you have great success with the business.

Shaun - We're all about grilling this week. Also, not as in the subject matter, but the enthusiasm for it.

Charlotte - Pics are nice, but it's all about the recipes in the end, right? We're looking forward to the entry!

Posted by Barrett on July 12, 2004 at 8:58 AM

I'm so in - bbq oysters, here I come!

Posted by redbeard on July 12, 2004 at 7:38 PM

Yaaay! A chance to show of the great South African art of braaing (aka barbecuing!) - I can't wait. It is allegedly summer over here, so in theory we should have a lovely day for the 18th, but this is England... so rain is about a 50/50 chance!! But we will persevere...
See you Sunday!

Posted by Jeanne on July 14, 2004 at 5:14 AM

Excellent! I'm in and will be posting my recipe at www.breadncoffee.com this Sunday (I'm heading out camping this weekend, hopefully I'll be home in time to send you an email that it's up.)

Posted by Kris on July 16, 2004 at 10:39 AM

Well, it looks as though MeatHenge.com has finally found IMBB in time to actually participate. We've been up now for 14 months and never been able to hit the mark.
As near as I can tell, we'll be smoking a 2 lb pork loin that's been brined, some crepinettes (duck meat pillows of LOVE) and whatever else I can get in there.
It will be a day of Meat Smokey Love!

Hi Theresa,
to get 'grill' marks, heat a skewer over the stove, then 'mark' on the meat using the heated skewer..:)

Posted by Mik on July 17, 2004 at 9:03 AM

I've posted my entry! Thanks for doing this - I'll enjoy seeing everyone's entries.


Posted by !Irene on July 18, 2004 at 6:47 AM

Hi!and again, many thanks for hosting! You can see my entry of grilled salmon and Wasabi Mayonnaise on Foccacia at http://www.accidentalhedonist.com/article.php?story=20040718142713696

Hello all! My entry is up, and I even hooked the camera up and got pictures.

I have all sorts of recipes:

Tri-tip Central Coast style
A very good vinaigrette (sp)
Link to my bread salad recipe (great side)
and extra bonus Lamb on a Stick.

Not organized enough to get my dad's butterflied marinated leg of lamb recipe in time, but when I do, I will update the entry.

link may wrap:

Posted by Charlotte on July 18, 2004 at 4:14 PM

Hi chefs!

I actually went out and bought a pan for the occassion. Mine is a very simple, but quite yummy version of the classic American hamburger:

Cheers, elise
