Grill Your Heart Out

Summer is fast upon us, and for many people that means only one thing: Grilling Season.

Now I know everyone has their own pet philosophy about what makes a good grill, usually yapping on about fuel and barbeque coals. Forget about it. Hit the P Street Whole Foods this Thursday and prepare to be converted to wood-burning grilling.

Summer weekends for many years of my time in Washington have been spent watching my friend and DC entrepreneur Ben Eisendrath work his magic on The Grillery, an elegantly simple, stainless steel grill that allows you to cook over a wood-burning fire. The crowd favorite has always been butterflied salmon on a bed of dill, rendering a fish so moist and succulent it embodies the “tastes like butter” cliche. But it’s equally impressive with meat – steak, lamb, venison, caribou sausage – even bananas!

Watch Ben grill and sample the rewards at the P Street Whole Foods beginning at 4pm this Thursday. He’ll demonstrate The Grillery’s mastery with dry rubbed flank steaks over natural wood. Prepare to taste, be converted and covet one for yourself…
