In the latest installment of my Keto Grilling segment I’ll show you how to whip up an easy and delicious grilled avocado stuffed with salsa!  This is the perfect side to prepare if you’ve already got the grill fired up!!Avocado Split in HalfYou want to start with an Avocado that’s not quite ripe. You want it to be a little harder than if you were going to just eat it.  Split the avocado in half, remove and discard the pit.Avocado on the GrillThe next part couldn’t be any easier, throw the avocado on the grill! When you first throw them on the grill they’ll be light brown.Finished Avocado on the GrillThen as they cook they’ll turn bright green.  You can really cook them for as long as you want but as long as they’ve got a nice char and are soft to the touch, they’re done.Grilled AvocadoThen when you plate the Grill Avocado’s, add in some fresh salsa to the center!  I had this side along with some bacon wrapped Filet Mignon so I just threw the avocados on a few minutes before the steak and cooked them for around 15 minutes.

In case you couldn’t tell, I’m now obsessed with my grill! Last time I made Beer Can Burgers so I figured the next logical step was to make Beer Can Chicken! If you’ve never heard of it before, the idea is to cook the chicken slowly over indirect heat on top of an aluminum can of beer. The beer steams the chicken from the inside as it cooks! Note that you can use any beer, this particular one someone left at my house so this seemed to be a good way to get rid of it.  It would also work with a lower carb beer like Michelob ultra or Miller 64.
Preparing Beer Can ChickenThis recipe starts with a whole, thawed chicken.  Remove any gizzards and plastic that it may come with.  Make sure to check the front and the back.  Then use kitchen shears to cut away any excess parts left over from the processing of the chicken. You should now have a nice opening the size of a beer can as shown on the right.Chicken on Beer CanNow for the fun part! Make sure the chicken is dry and then rub down with some oil.  I used some bacon fat out of my reserve. Then I rubbed it down inside and out with a generic Rotisserie chicken seasoning. Pour out half, or a little more than half, of the beer and then set the chicken on it!Beer Can Chicken on the GrillNow, preheat the grill to medium high heat and setup for indirect cooking. I used the outer two burners to heat the grill and left the middle one off. Then you just set the chickens on the grill!Finished Beer Can Chicken on the GrillAfter about an hour you’ve got a perfectly cooked, crispy chicken that’s been steamed from the inside! Make sure to check the temperature and verify its reached at least 165 degrees in the breast and 180 in the thigh.Beer Can ChickenFor the first meal my wife and I split a breast and I grabbed a leg and a wing along with a side of creamy cheesy spinach!

Thermapen
This probably shouldn’t be the first thing you buy for your keto kitchen, but eventually, you’ll end up buying this thermapen. It seams ridiculous to blow $80+ on a temperature probe but once you go through 5 other cheap ones, or burn your hand waiting for the temperature to stabilize, you’ll wish you just picked one of these up. Its way faster and more accurate at reading temperature and I now almost exclusively cook meat to a done temperature rather than a specific time.

I’ve always loved garlic, something about the smell and the flavor it adds to dishes lights up my senses. I’ve always had garlic as part of a dish and I’ve never actually bothered to cook it before.  Since I just pick up a new grill, I figured it was about time to take my garlic game to the next level.  Enter grilled garlic!!Cut GarlicStart by cutting the tops off of the garlic heads. Note that the entire thing is called a head and each individual sell is a clove. You want to make sure you cut it such that the tops of the cloves are exposed.Soaking Garlic in Cold WaterSoak the heads of garlic in cold water for 30 minutes to an hour.Garlic on FoilPlace the garlic into a piece of foil, drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.Wrapped GarlicCrumble up the sides.Grill TempPreheat the grill using indirect heat to 350 degrees.  Indirect meaning there is no heat under the garlic but one or more of the other burners are on.Garlic on Indirect Grill HeatHere’s a picture of the garlic on the grill. Its hard to see but I have the middle and left burner on and the right one off to setup the indirect heat.Grilled GarlicAfter an hour you’re left with creamy, gooey garlic that’s perfect as a side or as part of a larger dish.  Garlic comes out to about 1 carb per clove (the cells above) so don’t go crazy and eat the whole thing 🙂

The snow has finally melted, the weather has warmed up and that can only mean one thing, it’s the start of grilling season (in Boston)! My in-laws got us a kick butt Weber Grill for Christmas that we have just been able to assembly and start using. I apologize in advance for all of the amazing keto grilling concoctions I’m planning to post over the coming months. I wanted start out with something truly epic, worthy of the stunt cooking genre. Enter the Beer Can Burger! Note that there is no beer in the actual food, you can use any can like a diet coke but the original recipe all over the internet uses a beer can.

Hickory Wood ChipsFor this recipe, we want to cook the burger over indirect heat and with some smoke. Depending on your style of grill it may have a place to put Smoker Wood Chips, if not, you can make your own little smoker packet.  Place the wood chips in the center of some foil. Wood Chip PacketThen fold the sides over.  Make several slits on the top of the foil to let the smoke out. Alternatively, if you think you’re going to use your grill to smoke a lot, you can pick up a Stainless Steel Smoker Box that holds the wood chips.Wood Chips on the grill over direct heatAs I mentioned before, you want to setup your grill for indirect heat. Start by preheating it to warm up all the various metal parts of the grill.  Then lower the heat to 300 degrees and turn on just one of the burners.  In my case, this grill has three so I used the far left burner for the direct heat and placed the wood chips on that section.  The right section has the burners off and is where we’ll cook the meat.Ground Meat BallsForm the meat into large, equally sized balls.  I ground my own meat out of Beef Chuck, Beef Short Rib and Bacon, but you can just buy beef from the store.  Note that 5 is completely arbitrary, you can scale this to any size.  You do want large balls, at least 10 Oz for this to work.  Beer Can in BurgerTake your can and smush it into the ball.  You want to push it almost all the way down.  Then form the meat around the side of the can as shown.  Some people said you didn’t need to lube the can but I found that spraying it with Pam helped with the extraction.Bacon Wrapped Beer CanThen wrap two pieces of bacon around the outside.Bacon Burger BowlYou then extract the can and you’re left with a bacon wrapped beef bowl that you can put pretty much anything into!Seasoned Bowls on Sheet PanHere’s the Beer Can Burgers ready for stuffing!!Beer Can Burger Stuffing OptionsI fried up a variety of different toppings to put into the burgers but you can put anything you want.  From top to bottom, left to right we’ve got Onions, mushrooms, Pepper Jack Cubs, Green Peppers and Brussels Sprouts!Filled Beer Can BurgersHere’s what the inside looked like after I added the ingredients.Stuffed and Topped Beer Can BurgersThen I topped it with some shredded cheddar cheese for good measure.Beer Can Burgers on Indirect Heat on GrillCarefully place the burgers on the grill, close the lid and wait an hour!  Resist the urge to open the grill or move the burgers around.Finished Beer Can Burger on the GrillHere’s a shot of the finished burger on the grill.  Words can’t describe how awesome these turned out!!Beer Can BurgerHere’s an action shot of the burger.  As you can see the indirect heat cooking method kept the burger nice and medium rare while melting the cheese and cooking the bacon. Mmmmmm!
