Seeing as how it's Memorial Day Weekend, in addition to honoring those who've made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom, it's also the unofficial kickoff to Summer. Letting this weekend pass without some outdoor cooking of some sort would be one step away from heresy in my book. Since I have yet to replace the Missing Mini, we had decided to go ahead and buy another Smokey Joe Gold. Unfortunately I missed the hardware store and didn't really feel like driving to Target on Memorial Day weekend. So, in the spirit of the USMC, I improvised, adapted and overcame. Took a stock pot, a steamer basket, some wire mesh gutter guard and a cooling rack for a grate and made a little hobo grill. By the way, parental guidance is suggested. The movie's a little racy.
