Hey, folks!  :wave:  We just had a delicious meal cooked in Gail's new Cobb grill.  It's so cool!  You put about six charcoal briquets in the bottom, light them up until they are white, then put the food in a wok-shaped pan directly over the coals and cover it up.  Tonight, we did meatloaf with carrots and potatoes.  It was really yummy.

 

The story behind the Cobb grill is that women in Africa who had to go long distances looking for firewood were getting accosted by rebel soldiers.  This grill was invented to help them to be able to prepare a whole meal using just a handful of coal or wood so they wouldn't have to go so far from home looking for firewood.  I think that's such an amazing story!

Good news my friend.  :thumbup:

 

Holly fire wood was the problem with any ancient civilization. Eventually all the readily available fire wood was used up. They called it "squaw wood" in later years. I think that was the down fall of the Cahokia Mounds civilization. Not only wood but all the other wild commodities in the area. Eventually it took too long to obtain the things they needed.

The good news is you wont lose your finger unless gang green sets in.
