By now you have to have realized that I am a garlic fanatic. So when I saw this recipe, I HAD to try it. The day I did this turned into one of those comedy of error movies. I was late in starting, and was rushing around trying to get everything I needed to done. And after much success with other things, I had grown cocky. Well here are the ingredients, and this is how it went.
Here is where I got cocky. I left the beef to roast while I began to prepare the side dishes. Remember in my article about Plank Grilling, how I said “Smoke good, Fire bad”? Well…IT’S TRUE! My previously used, well soaked plank ignited. Smoke billowed everywhere, and it looked like my back yard was on fire. Keeping safety in mind, I had the hose handy anyway and was able to, with a couple of small spritzes, douse the flames.
After my ignited incident, I turned the grill down to continue roasting the beef. When I checked the temperature again, it had dipped to 250°F. I had turned off the middle burner and left the two outside burners running at low. (A great way to have a nice even temperature) Hadn’t I run out of propane for the grill! So there was no gas at all!
Following a swift tank exchange, we were cooking with gas again. Remember to check your gas levels if you have been cooking for a while. I made that mistake, making a large meal the day before, then baking Banana Bread, roasting the garlic, then the beef.
What else happened.
Oh yes. Another reason I ran out of gas, I was also baking Banana Bread earlier that day. And one of the potatoes exploded when I was roasting them as well for the Twice Baked Potatoes. Like I said, that day was one of those comedy of error movies. In the end though, through fire and smoke, and lack of gas, I pulled together a fantastic meal, and a perfectly prepared roast. This just goes to show you, things can go wrong, but, with a little creativity, you can make those near disasters into a magical meal. And you may stumble upon a new recipe in the process.
