Our own Fantomenos asked:
You're a Texan so:
What's the best cut of meat for casual grilling?
Again, these are advanced level questions with no simple answer.
What's throwing me here is the use of the word "casual". "Casual" can mean "I'm coming home from work, do you want me to grab some chicken on my way?" It can mean having over 20 people, but we're all in shorts. It can mean dinner with a few friends, or it can mean the assembly line at a summer camp.
So, let's ponder this a bit.
I'd break it down to:
- steaks and chicken
- hotdogs and hamburgers on the Weber on the back porch
While barbecue is sometimes served at weddings, political events, etc... and you can definitely find upscale barbecue in town (I recommend Lamberts), the barbecue that's considered most desirable is usually slow cooked and smoked to perfection. That, obviously, is not a "casual" task, even if it's one's hobby and you're doing it at home. Seriously, it's an all day affair.
