    Looks awesome as usual! I was suffering from withdrawal, waiting for you to put up a new one!

    I do grilled marinated veggies sometimes, slightly different marinade (about an hour):

    olive oil
    balsamic vinegar
    chopped garlic
    cracked black pepper

    I love the taste of balsamic vinegar.

      The word is Danish and it is called smørgåsbord and as I know the food should be cold for being called that.

        Well, you may be right.....I always thought it meant a 'spread of food'.

        Here's the definition that came up when I googled.....Smörgåsbord is a Swedish word which refers to a type of Scandinavian meal served buffet-style with multiple dishes of various foods on a table.

          Those both look good to me. I am a vegetable freak.

          I made roasted winter vegetables. I use gold beets (red ones turn the whole dish red) and parsnips, small (boiler size) whole onions, butternut squash, baby carrots, some green and some yellow squash, fire roasted and peeled red peppers, sweet potatoes, yams and just about any other kind of veggie you can think of. The summer squashes will cook much faster than the others so add them last or not at all.

          Toss the peeled and cut pieces (the harder vegetables have been par-boiled) in olive oil and my own special spice mix. Then I put them in the hamburger basket and roast them over the grill until tender. You can bake them in the oven too. You can string them on skewers if you like and they look pretty cool served that way next to a juicy steak.

          Makes a whole lot of veggies and you will have to cook and fill the basket more than once, but they can be frozen to use later. To freeze the cooked vegetables, spread them out on a cookie sheet in the freezer and then when they are frozen, bag them up in portions for however many you have to serve.

          I do this at least once every year in the fall and have the veggies for the times I am tempted to just open a can of something.

            Sorry, I meant Swedish. A smørgås is a slice of bread with something upon, In Norwegian it is called smørbrød

              Sirlion is my favorite also. Usually do a reverse sear and it turns out extremely juicy.

                  Yes, 24/7 knows their stuff!!!!

                  Reverse Sear works great, especially on leaner cuts of meat like sirloin, round, pork loin and poultry as well. What it basically does is 'tempers' the meat versus shocking it on a screaming hot grill. The outcome is an extremely moist and tender cut and in the case of beef, will give you a uniform rareness through the entire cut, vs. having grey outter edges and a cold center.

                  I didn't do it for the sirloins in this post as they were too thin. But when I do it for a thicker cut of sirloin or top round, I will cook indirect in the 245º-260º range until the meat hit 105º internal temperature. Then I remove the meat from the grill, crank the heat on the grill and then finish the meat with a quick sear until I get an internal temp of around 125º for medium rare.....there will be a few degrees of carryover cooking, so it will climb to 130º or a touch more.

                  Here's an example of a london broil.

                  Cook indirect


                  At 125º


                  The sear


                  The finished product.

                        As Wolfeman said you cook the meat indirectly to within about 20 or 30 degrees of your target tempreture then sear to lock in the juices and form a crust. For example, today I'm cooking a few Top Sirloin roasts. Since I want them rare in the middle I'll cook them indirectly until they hit 100 degrees internally then sear the outside to finish them.

                          You guys are great - I can grill (i.e. I get it cooked and I don't burn it usually) but nothing so techincal as you two. I'll have to expand my horizons it appears.
