Innovative Grilling- Turkey Torpedoes and Grilled Turkey Meatballs

Let's start out August a little different than a typical post.  There's no recipe here, just a few thoughts on grilling, the hands down most popular way to cook in summer.

The dinner plan was all set- some ground turkey thawing in the fridge, creminis from the farmer's market, plenty of onion ready to be decorated with grill marks, and some cheddar, from WI of course.  Only thing missing? Hamburger buns.  Shit. Now what?  Well, I did have hot dog buns on hand, so we went from grilled turkey burgers to what I now call Turkey Torpedoes.  (Just cause I like the alliteration)  Sure enough, they tasted something like a turkey burger but the sausage shape was certainly confusing to the brain, as it kept saying 'sausage, sausage, sausage' when in fact it was all burger.  Never give up on your meal, no matter what ingredient you lack.

Do you know how easy it is to grill meatballs?  You don't need to skewer them, just make sure your grates are well-oiled and hot, then it's balls away.  Don't want to fire up the oven for a meatball sammich and get the crib all warmed up? Go outside the box and go outside your house.
