Last Saturday I found a $1.50 pork chop in the clearance bin at the grocery store so I bought it and hit it with some Weber seasoned salt.

There was also a small, already-rubbed rib section for $2.50 so I grabbed it as well.

I used hardwood briquettes alone and didn't bother with any smoke wood. The ribs grilled indirect for awhile at around 350 and when they were looking good I put the chop directly over the coals.

Mrs. Chicken had bought a big bunch of asparagus for $3 at the farmers' market so I diced half of it and added an 8-oz. package of white mushrooms that I bought on sale for 99 cents. Seasoning was simple; just olive oil, salt, and pepper.

For $6.49 plus a few pennies for the salt, oil, and whatnot we ate pretty darn good! :wink:

+1. Quite the score there, Brad! :cheers:
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

Thanks! On days when I can't quite decide on what to grill the clearance cooler is often the deciding factor!
