Actually, Roberta made a grill. She’d been wanting to grill for a long time. I think because there is a place around the corner with a huge grill that cooks about 40 chickens every night on the sidewalk and it smells fantastic from our house. The problem is that we couldn’t find any affordable grills anywhere. The only one we found was a very small Weber grill in the big hardware store, Lugo, but they wanted about $125 USD for it. Too much for something we’d probably use every night for a week out of excitement and then not touch for months and would just end up a rusted heap on the back patio. I speak from experience, here.
Walking around Granada we always see people grilling; either small restaurants with outdoor grills or individuals, but the grills are always hand made out of barrels or some other container. Except in Lugo, we’ve never seen a commercially made consumer grill in use. Of course, in larger restaurants like El Zaguan they have huge commercial grills
So Roberta went down to an appliance repair / salvage place by the market and picked up an old oven rack, a big metal dish, and a couple of cinder blocks and – voila – we have a grill!
UPDATE: The chicken breasts you see cooking there on the grill turned out great. They were a bit charred on the outside but they were perfectly done on the inside. Very moist and tender. I think next time we’ll use less charcoal.
