Smoked Sausage & Baby Potatoes on the WeberAugust 19, 2013 at 6:30 pm | Posted in Grilling Out, Potatoes, Smoked Sausage, Veggies | Leave a comment
Tonight I fired up the grill again. Last night, we had burgers and tonight I grilled smoked sausage. There was just half a pound of sausage in the freezer so that’s what we had. Hubby’s stomach isn’t happy lately, so he had applesauce and pudding.
1/2 pound of Eckrich Smoked Sausage
1/2 pound of Melissa’s Baby Dutch Yellow Potatoes
water, enough to cover potatoes
1 tsp. salt
1/4 cup of Bird’s Eye Steamfresh Pure & Simple Whole Green BeansCarefully light the grill. I ran out of lighter fluid tonight, so am going to have to get more! I’ve got plenty of charcoal to last the remainder of the season but need to either get lighter fluid or one of those chimney charcoal starters.
Okay, back to the cooking. Once the fire is light and safe to walk away from – or if you have a teen who is willing to sit and stare at it – go into the house and put the potatoes into a pan. Fill the pan with enough water to just barely cover the potatoes; add salt. Place on stove and turn on medium-high and let them cook for about 15 minutes. They need to be pretty much done so that they can go onto the grill.Drain potatoes and place on disposable grill pan; spray with olive oil and put frozen beans on top. Don’t worry about thawing the beans; trust me, it’s hot enough that they’ll thaw and cook quickly.Take everything outdoors; place the sausage on direct heat (right over the coals) and let the veggies cook on indirect heat (not directly on top of the coals).My veggies were kind of over the coals more than I had wanted; but I didn’t put the top on the Weber, so that I could stir the veggies around and avoid burning them. Keep turning the meat so that it doesn’t burn. I didn’t time how long mine cooked; maybe 15 minutes?
Remove the meat to a serving dish and then move the veggies over the coals and let them finish browning; remove them to the same dish as the meat.Looks pretty good, doesn’t it?It was good! Now, off to see if I can find a charcoal starter……
