Day 2: Keto Diet Challenge at GrillGrate
We are off to a tasty start for our Keto Diet Month here at GrillGrate. Most of our staff has signed on and weighed in for the Keto diet challenge for the month of March, including Susan and myself. It was a tough sell for me, but I know I need to do it. I’ve got the Covid 20 pounds and then some. My biggest challenge is giving up beer and limiting my scotch intake! You bet I’ll be exploring White Claw and other adult beverages this month for sure. That is a blog post for another day!
Today we’re grilling bacon, lots of bacon! We rolled out 3 grills this morning, a pellet grill, a gas grill, and a charcoal kettle. We flipped all the GrillGrates to the flat side which is the absolute best way to grill bacon in my opinion. The GrillGrate Griddle works well too, but the holes in the GrillGrates allow a bit of grease to run off and a bit of flareup on the gasser, and nice smoke on the pellet grill. We bought a bunch of thick-cut Smithfield bacon and a big box of eggs and got down to grilling breakfast. We grilled multiple rounds of bacon on each grill except the Kettle. I quickly learned that direct grilling bacon on a charcoal grill is a lot harder to control than a gas grill or pellet grill. Not sure what I was thinking there! Next time, I’ll set up indirect grilling on the Kettle. And there will be a next time!
We added the GrillGrate griddle to the gas grill and grilled up the eggs over easy. We even had a two with double yolks- a good sign for our Keto Month here at GrillGrate.
