Memorial Day Weekend Open BBQ Thread

New, comment

Right now, as I type, I have a fridge full of meat waiting to meet a flame. Now, I just have to get the weather to cooperate. It is cloudy with off and showers in my northwest hood right now. I am holding out hope that the fickle nature of spring time in Seattle will prevail and the weather will soon switch. Otherwise, I will exercise my freedom to by a crazed meat eating lunatic and BBQ in the rain. 

I don't have anything fancy on the menu. Just some steaks, burgers and dogs. I'll save more creative and prepared BBQs for days when I am not worried about dodging rain drops. I do have my own steak seasoning rub almost dialed into perfection though: Sea Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder, Paprika, Onion Powder, Dill Weed and Cayenne. It is simple yet awesome. And that brings me to the point of this thread—talking BBQ

Anyone else hitting the grills today or tomorrow? What are your favorite BBQ recipes or seasonings? Are you a dry rub or a marinade person?

Most importantly, I want to thank anyone who has been brave enough to serve in the military that has allowed me the freedom to cook meat on fire whenever the hell I feel like it.
