The Thrill of the Grill is one of my favorite grilling cookbooks of all time. Authors Chris Schlesinger and John Willoughby combine encyclopedic knowledge, tremendous intellectual curiousity, and plain common sense into a book chock full of great recipes and valuable tips. Here's a little box of info from the book entitled "Small Things to Cook in the Coals."
There are any number of small treats you can make for yourself as long as you are grilling anyway. Just rub them with salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste, wrap them in foil with the accompanying items, and throw them in the coals to cook. The proportions will depend upon your individual taste.
Zucchinis, cut into 1-inch slices, with garlic, thyme, and olive oil. Halved red onions with rosemary and balsamic vinegar. Small red potatoes with butter and garlic. Mushrooms with butter, sherry, and basil. Sweet potatoes, cut into 1-inch slices, with brown sugar and butter.
What do you like to cook in the coals? I guess a lot of people don't use coal anymore, and I guess you can't throw things into the gas grates to cook.
