I posted this recipe at the start of this blog about 2 years ago and it is still one of our very favorite grilling recipes. I have served this many times to company and at parties and barbecues. It’s easy and delicious! Just double, triple, quadruple, or whatever.
I am sorry about the bad picture ~ blame the photographer, LOL!
