  2. Carmen

    Thanks for the chance to win! We love burgers, brats and chicken as "normal" grilling food, but my all-time favorite is baby back ribs.

  3. Jessica P.

    My fav food to barbeque is hamburgers! The strangest food I've ever tried barbequed is bear. I didn't cook it, just tried it. 🙂

  4. Wendy Jordan

    My favorite BBQ food item is Drumsticks.  I love t marinate them overnight in lemon juice and salt and pepper.  I flip the Zip Lock bag occasionally and then BBQ.  Simply delightful!!!  
    The strangest food item that I have BBQ's is pizza.  Quite challenging to kep the crust from burning while the topping melt.  Haha!  Happy Memorial Day all!!!

  5. Kim G.

    My favorite food to BBQ is corn on the cob!  It tastes delicious on the grill!  The strangest food that I've ever grilled was pizza…it just didn't quite turn out the same on the grill! Thanks so much for the chance to win such amazing goodies!  Happy Memorial Day to you!!

  6. Kristin

    I love to grill steak, chicken, and veggies! The weirdest (to me) was cake. Although, it wasn't bad. Got a caramelized like crunch to it! 🙂

  7. Scrappyrae10

    I love to grill steak and the weirdest but super yummy is fruit and mostly pinapple

  8. Dorina D

    Can't decide between salmon or kabobs with pearl onions, baby potatoes, mushrooms, pineapple and of course – chicken  or beef or pork. Nah! Has to be the salmon as the best. As to the worst, it was so charred, that I never did figure out what it was. 

  9. KimberlyMarie

    We are so simple in our house, we bbq hamburgers and hotdogs and love it 🙂

  10. Ruza

    I love a good fillet on the grill. Don't do it often enough!  Strangest food … I'm not that adventurous when it comes to my food so I don't have one for this part. ;o)

  11. Melyssa

    I love to grill steak!! The strangest but tasty item I've grilled was bologna! 🙂

  12. Karen aka Soccerboyzmom

    I would say my favorite to BBQ is a hamburger and the stranges was the first time I BBQ'd a peach.

  13. Becky D

    My favorite is London Broil and portabello mushrooms that have been marinated – absolutely heavenly!  The strangest thing is peaches.  Sounds strange but really delicious.  My little sister introduced me to all of these lovely delights 🙂

  14. Nancy Y

    I'm a vegetarian so my favorite food to grill is Portobella mushrooms!!

  15. Caro

    I like spareribs and vegetables.
    that was a great week, so much inspiration!

  16. Luz Maria Martin del Campo

    I love a good churrasco (Argentinian cut of beef), but I also love roasted vegetable salad and grilled peaches on vanilla ice cream for dessert!

  17. karenladd

    My favorite food to barbeque is hot dogs and hamburgers!!! Simple and yummy!

  18. shartl

    My favorite food to barbeque is grilled salmon, and the strangest food I ever barbequed was strawberries on a skewer with pineapple. It wasn't such a great idea because the strawberries just fell off!

  19. NWFlamingo

    My favorite barbequed item is probably T-bone steak.  The only slightly strange thing I've barbequed is eggplant, but that really isn't strange.

  20. Kay Savage

    My favorite grilled foods are  Chicken,Turkey Burgers and VEGGIES! YUM !
    Can't think of anything strange.
    Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

  21. Bethany Becker

    I love to bbq potabella mushrooms.  I don't eat much meat, so these are a good alternative.  Thanks for an amazing week!

  22. ava

    Chicken burgers are my favorite to BBQ….

  23. Susan Jensen

    My senior chef loves Hamb with pinapple&bacon smothered in B.B.Q. The stranges ?? Mango & banana's
    Love to try the glitter++

  24. Gwen Windham

    The best thing I've ever barbequed was on a charcoal grill– gas just doesn't give the same flavor– and it was slow cooked, tender, fall off the bone, slathered with bbq sauce– chicken…. mmmmmm….  making my mouth water just *thinking* about it!! 🙂   And the wierdest thing…  probably sliced zucchini… thought it might be good… but not..

  25. Michele D

    Fav BBQ food is chicken, and the strangest thing we BBQ'd was mango, which isn't all that strange but we don't eat much mango in general.

  26. valerie linn

    I like everything on the bbq..It's the best way to cook anything.The weirdest food grilled was eel caught fresh through the ice on our canal.It was unbelievably good.thank you for a chance to win.

  27. MaryLouH

    I like hamburgers grilled and dripping with bbq sauce.    
    I can't think of anything weird that we've BBQ'd.   My husband didn't go in for anything exotic so we stayed with the mainstays.

  28. Debbie Dunham

    I love BBQ steak. The weirdest thing I've ever BBQ'd is corn on the cob with BBQ sauce smeared on it! Ewwww

  29. DebbieC.

    Favorite food on theBBQ is ribs with homemade sauce.

  30. tricia

    My husband does the grilling and I love when he grills chicken and portabello mushrooms!

  31. Elizabeth Campau

    My grilling favorite is chicken and steak. The weirdest thing I have done on the grill is chicken noodle soup when our electricity went out!

  32. Kristie Maynard

    I have a saying about bbq, if you can cook it, you can grill it.  In the summer, I grill more days than not.  That being said I'd say my favorite food to do on the grill would be chicken.  We have a local company, Chiavetta's, that has the best marinade/sauce ever and I love to do chicken with it.  Sooooooo tasty.  As for strange things to do on the grill, I guess that would have to be pizza.  Haven't done it in years, but we used to get little frozen pizzas and do them on the grill.  Maybe I'll have to do that again soon.  Thanks for the chance to win.

  33. Katherine L

    I love BBQ brisket!  It is delicious all by itself or made into a sandwich.  Yummy!

  34. alice hancock

    Vegetarian hot dogs are my favorite grill food.  The strangest thing I grilled was tempeh.  But its was good with BBQ sauce. 

  35. Lisa L.

    My favorite food to bbq is chicken… I haven't really bbq anything unnatureal, except maybe corn on the cob once and that was really good!  Thanks!

  36. Sue McRae

    I really like pizza and chicken shish kebabs on the bbq, yummy!

  37. Carol Ann

    Favorite foo – baby back ribs.  Oddest food to grill – bananas!!

  38. SuZeQ

    My favorite food to BBQ is a nice filet mignon.  The "strangest" thing I've ever BBQ'd isn't really strange but it was a slice of canteloupe – it was mouthwatering and delicious … so were the pineapple slices.  Yummmm.

  39. LucyA

    The strangest for me was BBQing a lobster tail. It didn't come out good 🙁

  40. Melinda Wilson

    My favorite food on the grill is Pork Loin. I haven't really grilled anything weird but I did have to use my grill to cook "battered chicken breast patties" one time and they turned out pretty good.

  41. Maureen Hayes

    My favorite food to BBQ is steak, mainly because I don't like steak cooked any other way.  It just doesn't taste the same if it isn't cooked over the BBQ somehow.
    The strangest food I have ever BBQ'd is clams.  I learned this from my Dad, you make a foil packet with the clams, butter, lemon, etc. . . And cook them until they are steamed and opened.  They are delicious!  Of course we always used fresh clams we had caught or bought that day!

  42. Tina Michael-Dahlmann

    My favorite is hotdogs and the weirdest but not so weird was bacon wrapped chicken breast kabobs.  Happy  Memorial Day!  Thanks for the chance to win.

  43. Pendra

    My favorite food to BBQ is is Brats and corn on the cob in the husks…the strangest was the year at the cabin the stove went out and we promised to make choc. chip cookies and had the batter all made, they didn't turn out to bad!

  44. Karen Letchworth

    My favorite thing to grill is KABOBS with shrimp, chicken, mushrooms and onion.  The strangest thing we ever BBQ'd was a pair of underwear we need to dry out quickly…….please don't ask!

  45. rush

    we don't grill out, but i enjoy grilled hamburgers.  i have never eaten any thing strange off the bar-b-q grill.

  46. Holly Elliott

    My fave is steak! The weirdest, thats not so weird is pinapple.

  47. Cynthia B.

    My husband is in charge of the grilling, and although his favorite food to grill is steak, I LOVE grilled corn-on-the-cob! We're not too adventurous when it comes to the grill, so we may always grill the same types of food, but my husband has it down to an art! 🙂

  48. Ashley N Newell

    My favorite is steak.  The weirdest thing I've had BBQed is banana.  

  49. C arol B

    Love to BBQ burgers, I never eat them unless they are cooked on the grill.
    Carol B

  50. Sue D

    I like barbeque chicken.  The strangest thing we have put on the grill is asparague–it is great this way.

  51. Denise Bryant

    Strangest food…. rattlesnake. I tasted the tiniest piece just to say I tried it. Hubby said it tasted like chicken… so I said, "Then go to the grocery store and buy a chicken".

  52. Marcia Dehn-Nix

    My favorite item to BBQ is Korean Beef (Thin sliced steak that has been marinated in soy sauce, garlic, seasame oil, an some secret ingredients). The weirdest – a campfire pie with banana, marshmallows, and chocolate chips. (Weird, but delicious)

  53. Miriam Prantner

    My favorite thing is hamburgers, you can never go wrong with hamburgers.  Thanks for another great chance to win!

  54. Laura Cox

    Oh my fave is ribs….yummy!!  The strangest….oh I've got this….lol….my DH (against my personal better judgement and advice) decided to try to "steam" vegetables ON the GRILL in a glass pyrex bowl…..let's just say it was a "crack up"….literally…

  55. Emily h

    It has been such a fun week!  Thank you!

  56. Claudia Davis

    I have a special recipe for hamburgers that everyone loves and it is my favorite food to grill – and of course it has to be charcoal to add that special flavor! Can't think of anything strange that I've grilled other than trying the beer can chicken recipe floating around.

  57. Arlette

    The strangest thing and my favorite are the same: Pineapple!  

  58. Trudi Wilbur

    I think my fave is brats.  My hubby makes good stuff on the grill but brats are just an all time favorite.

  59. erin

    BBQ Pizza is pretty tasty, that's not weird though is it?  Love grilled veggies…

  60. lalo

    Tariaki chicken … the best!!!

  65. Grá

    Chargrilled steak has to be my all time favourite & the strangest thing I've barbecued: bananas. Not really very strange but the first time I served these blacken morsels I received a few strange glances from my friends 🙂

  66. Christy Hendrickson

    I love to BBQ portabella mushrooms that have been marinating in italian dressing, tastes just like steak. 

  67. Shari Klyn

    My favorite food for my husband to grill is hamburgers.  He does all the grilling.  The weirdest thing that has been grilled is smores.  We didn't have a real fire so we grilled them.

  68. Jeyatha

    Chicken is my fav and the strange thing I did was putting all the veg in could find in the fridge on the barbecue, some of them tasted wired.. 🙂
