Grilled Corn Salad

I normally just grill my sweet corn add butter and salt and pepper or use a compound butter with spices and I am done.  I wanted to do something a bit different with this wonderful BBQ side so I went trolling online for inspiration and after getting some ideas I came up with this.

2 ears of corn charred on the grill, kernels cut off of the cob 2 Roma tomatoes, deseeded and copped to your liking ¼ white or red onion sliced into half rings Hand full of fresh basil, leafs torn Several sprigs of fresh thyme

Thanksgiving - Sage and Thyme rubbed Turkey:

Smells of a turkey roasting pulls me back to a simpler time.  Playing outside, probably wishing for snow, fending off monsters or whatever would be typical fodder for entertainment.  After getting chilled, I remember returning home and having a wall of delicious smells smacked me in the face as my grandma, mom and dad cooked away over the feast we were going to all share later in the day.  There was homemade cocoa and buttered toast for breakfast and nibbles of holiday fair throughout the day but not enough to “spoil my appetite” as my grandma would say.  It

Great Simple Steak, Butter Mushrooms, and Thyme Grilled Potatoes

After some consideration I feel this post should be about the whole meal and not just the side that I had intended to be.  I am a big fan of a big ol’ juicy steak on the grill and I am a bit of a purest when it comes to my steak.  The philosophy I use is DO NOT FUCK WITH THE GOODNESS THAT IS STEAK, simpler is better when it comes to this sacred cow as it were.

First off I start with a good quality cut, my favorites are Rib Eye, Club, Kansas City or New York
