Happy 4th of July 2013!
On this day of grilling (arguably the most American grilling day ever!), I simple pose the question, to which I have no answer, nor have a researched it, nor do I plan to research it, as stated in the blog post title.
I prefer charcoal grilling to propane, if only to appease the pyromaniac in me. Others can argue all they want about the taste or the cost or the clean-up or the time it takes. I've got a nice charcoal grill and I like using lighter fluid. I like the smell of charcoal. I like my charcoal cylinder (a must have if you plan to grill as often as I do).
I do not like the charcoal waste, if only because I do not know what to properly do with it. Do I just bag it after it cools and throw it in the trash? Can it be used for some greater purpose? Yard or garden fertilizer? Special effects in a low-budget movie where you need a cloud of smoke-looking "poof" effect?
Just wondering ...
Song Of The Day:
The word "Phoenix" refers to rising from the ashes and this song by Brandeis University's Voicemale a cappella group is a perfectly suited tune for the day and subject matter of this post. Plus it is just an absolutely amazing song!
