opening day of bbq season

Nothing signals spring like the smell of barbecue cooking. Those regular trips to fill the propane tank are routine in the summer months. We use the bbq several times a week, grilling everything from whole fish to polenta and everything in between.

Today was our inaugural grill fest. A whole chicken cut up and simply marinated in olive oil, oregano, lemon juice and salt and pepper and grilled to a slight char with smokey flavour throughout. No sides and no condiments but a couple of lemon wedges.

We devoured this whole chicken like it was our last day on earth. Simple ingredients made this chicken taste fresh and delicious and the weather was a sure sign of spring on the horizon.

If this is what we have to look forward to for the next few months, it's going to be an exciting summer...

This is kenny, your brother. That chicken looked so crispy and ready to be devoured. I enjoy the color and your touch on the grill. I am feeling like Julia Child looking at that picture.

Great food.
