We have found when we are grilling veggies to us the non stick foil wrap. Before we began using it, the regular foil was hard to keep the food from burning. The grill mat and the non stick foil have improved out grilling abilities and flavors.

One of the favorites is sliced potato, a sliced onion and sliced carrots. Add some butter, salt and pepper and you have a tasty side dish that roll right out of the foil. Ans we do the Hobo dinners too. Tried them yrs. ago over an open fire in a 1# coffee tin. Memories of campouts!!

Elaine I should try that with my girls. I'd be curious to see what they choose to put in their foil packets. Also, love the idea of having a cleaner grill.

We love doing "Hobo Dinners" on the grill. This way everyone can pick what they want in their meal. We just take aluminum foil and add whatever veggies/meat you want to eat. Add some spices, fold up, and place on the grill to cook. Keeps the grill cleaner as well!

Otherwise I love doing kabobs with veggies and even some fruit mixed in like pineapple.

Lori, I've never tried cauliflower on the grill before - will definitely add that to my list to try. I got hungry reading your post. LOL

Eileen, thanks for the link for the grilling mat.

One of our favorite camping meals is sausage/veggies in a grill basket. I use turkey kielbasa, and veggies--usually cauliflower and zucchini, sometimes also broccoli and cabbage--there is enough oil in the sausage so I don't need to add any...and the flavors of the sausage marry with the veggies. When they are cooked, eat plain off a plate, or put in a tortilla with a sprinkle of shredded cheese and eat like a burrito. It cooks quickly and is an easy meal. My youngest won't eat it, but he doesn't eat much that is cooked, so I just give him some raw veggies and a cheese stick and he's happy.
We also do the typical meats--burgers, dogs, or pork chops on the grill.
I have also cooked the same foods on an indoor griddle when we have had our grilling rained out.

I am not sure where we got the grill mats but I have seen them in stores that sell grills or BB&B or Camping World. I have seen them at WalMart too. I just looked them up and will put the URL here for you to look at. They do work and we love them!! And actually this is a good price too. Lots of variance in price.

Ken, I've never tried to do my veggies without some type of oil or dressing. I'm intrigued and will have to give it a try. I like your idea of grilling extra. So smart!

We are year-round grillers at our house (although my partner actually does all of the grilling). Chicken would be what is grilled most often, followed by veggies (asparagus, corn, and also mixed veggies in a basket) and sometimes fish (cod in tin foil boat/tray). This year he has also been grilling pork chops for himself (I don't like pork). We don't eat much red meat, so I don't think we ever grill burgers unless we have guests who want them. I know a lot of people oil their veggies first, but we just cook them plain and they turn out awesome. We usually grill a bunch of chicken at a time and eat it over a few days to save on prep/cooking time.

Just yesterday, I saw an ad on TV for a grill mat. I was wondering if they actually worked. I'm glad to hear they do. Do you remember where you purchased yours? I'd love to get one.

We primarily do meats on the grill and have a veggie mix we put into foil and "bake" on the grill. We do a lot of grilling and use a "grill mat" which goes over the actual grill bars and you get the same flavors and grill marks through the mat. Very easy clean up by taking the mat into the house, wash with soap and water, dry and return to the grill. All is cleaned!

I love to grill in the summer time. Who wants to heat up the house, right? My dad loves to grill year around - but I haven't reached that level yet, haha. So wondering what foods people like to make on the grill. My favorite is veggies on the grill usually some mix of red peppers, mushrooms, and whatever else I have in the house. Even though we don't usually eat a lot of read meat, I tend to grill burgers because I know my girls will eat them. I am not really great at chicken or fish on the grill. Just curious to see what others like to cook on their grill.
