    All I can say is erain made me do it. [​IMG] I just had to try out his suggestion for grilled tomatoes.  My variation is that I used Mexican blended cheese (that's what I had on hand) and some fine chopped bell peppers (the rest of the peppers ended up in the dehydrator, waste not, want not).  Meat was pork loin chop that I'd tenderized for schnetzil and then changed my mind.  Marinated in buttermilk, vac sealed for about 4 hours, then used Simply Marvelous Cherry Rub.  Just a little spice to it.  Just right for the wimps of the world like me who'd rather taste the meat than be overwhelmed by the HEAT.   All hit the Weber grill over Royal Oak Lump (you guys are right, lump is much better for grilling, what a great taste).  I'll let the pictures do the rest of the talking for me.  Enjoy, I know we sure did.

    And there we have it.  I do want to add one more comment and that relates to buttermilk.  Previously, that was something my Grandmother served us and it was TERRIBLE.  Yuck.  Well since joining this merry crowd and seeing how others were using buttermilk as an aid in cooking, we tried it and discovered, hey cooked, it ain't half bad.  So, thanks again for leading another into the light.

    And I gotta agree and SWMBO highly endorses this remark, try them grilled tomatoes, they were fabulous.

    Thanks for joining me on this venture.

    Oh man, I couldn’t sleep so I got up and started cruising the forum to try and relax.

    First I hit a thread with two killer posts about pot pies.

    Then I hit this post with two killer posts about using grilled tomatoes.

    Is this a conspiracy? Is this twofer night? No one told me!

    I'd go raid the fridge to see what inferior product I have in there, but I haven’t been home for a while so I’m sure I don’t have anything in there that can hold a candle to these.

    Now I’m depressed.    [​IMG]

    I just hate this.  People are posting all these mater posts!  And my maters look terrible!  LOL

    That is some great looking stuff.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    Well, if it'll make you feel better, those are store bought.  Our strawberries are already a month late.  It's been one of those kinda years out here on the left coast.
