As I mentioned in the Rib Off post, when in Michigan we do a lot of grillin and eat very well despite the rustic surroundings. One reason why is because my cousin hauls his boat up and we fish for salmon in Lake Michigan every day weather permitting. And there is nothing better than eating salmon that was swimming in the lake that morning. Here are a couple great examples of the haul from the lake:

Here we have the salmon and the trout ready for the grill:

Here is my cousin tending to some salmon on the grill:

Not bad for glorified camping, huh?

Scott Thomas, the Original Grillin’ Fool, was sent off to college with a suitcase and a grill where he overcooked, undercooked and burned every piece of meat he could find. After thousands of failures, and quite a few successes, nearly two decades later he started a website to show step by step, picture by picture, foolproof instructions on how to make great things out of doors so that others don’t have to repeat the mistakes he’s made on the grill.
