Barbeque, the unheralded tool

As my buddy said: "You gotta have a hobby;" well I say: "You gotta have a cause." My cruising cause is to let people know how versatile their barbecue is. The popular barbecue we all have, like the Weber's aren't real barbeque's. Barbecuing has many definitions - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbecue - as can be found in this link. But the barbecue we know and love grills and bakes.

A good barbecue will have more than one flame control so that the flame can be turned off in sections on your barbecue; most boat barbeque's don't have this option, one dial does all. But even though the boat barbecue doesn't have the control it should, you can still use it. A chap on a forum discussed installing a two burner stove, then went on to say he wished he had installed three burners, giving an example of a breakfast where he could have used all three burners; one for the eggs, the second for bacon and sausage and the third for the potatoes. I responded on the forum, why didn't you use your barbecue as a grill and put a pan on it and cooked your potatoes in the pan there.

So you can throw your frying pan on the grill and use it, but the barbecue can also make an excellent oven. I add two items to my Sports Barbecue and it works well. The first item is a pizza stone, this spreads the heat and prevents hot spots (also good for barbecue pizza - recipe supplied below). The second item is a temperature gauge so that I have more control over the heat setting.

Below I have supplied a number of links; the first one an expanded explanation of using your barbecue for baking, and the rest are recipes for bread, pizza and a barbecued turkey:

Good explanation

http://bbq.about.com/od/mealsandmenus/a/aa050199.htm

A bread recipe:

http://www.glendasattic.com/r/br/bb.htm

Pizza on your barbeque:

http://bbq.about.com/cs/meals/a/aa070602a.htm

Turkey on the grill – better than on oven alone:

http://bbq.about.com/od/turkey/a/aa111498.htm

Skillet cornbread (on the grill):

http://bbq.about.com/od/miscellaneou...r/bl90501b.htm

So those of us with smaller boats equipped with a barbecue have an oven, even if our stove does not come equipped with an oven on the boat.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

well done

This is a really good post.

I add to the BBQ idea, the idea of the Dutch Oven: A cast iron pot of sorts that really does a great job of meals. Look them up, they are a "silver bullet" of camping/sailing cooking. Especially the Classic 12 inch model. so good, so easy!

Since most marinas don't allow open fires when docked, I bought an electric grill to use when in a marina. I love my steaks!
