I never thought I liked brussel sprouts but we were doing mushroom swiss burgers with sauteed onions and I was looking for a side. At Stop and Shop in East Gloucester they had brussel sprouts on sale for $2 a bag so I figured I could do something with them on the grill.
I never thought I’d have such a passion for BBQ Charcoal grilling but this grill with all the different inserts and the cast iron grates and the ash catching system at the bottom and the figuring out how to arrange your coals, it’s just straight up addicting. The process just takes you away and while I can’t imagine why some people like to golf, I imagine it’s the same type of thing- that you immerse yourself in the process and the stresses of every day life go away because you need to be focused. It’s been a joy and the thing that takes the STOK grill system to the next level is all the cool inserts that you can use to try different types of cooking with wood chunks, chips and/or charcoal.
Anyway, preparing and roasting the brussel sprouts couldn’t be easier.
You wash them under cold water and dry them, cut them in half length-wise drizzle them with Atlantic Saltworks coarse salt, crushed black pepper and some garlic powder and place them cut side down on the wok insert or if you don’t have the wok insert , a good seasoned cast iron pan will do. Get the grill up to 400 degrees and move them around a little as you cook. About 15 minutes and they’ll bring out that sweet caramelizing from the heat. If you didn’t think you liked brussel sprouts, you really ought to give them a try this way.
Cover russet potatoes with olive oil and sprinkle top with Atlantic Saltworks Salt Flake. Put on grill for about an hour, vents wide open.
Hollow out the potatoes once soft put soft potatoes guts aside.
Mix up equal parts shredded cheddar and cream cheese and butter and add just a touch of your favorite BBQ rub for color and a little kick. Then add your potato guts and some chopped up cooked bacon and restuff the hollowed out potatoes.
Toss em on the grill before your steaks to get that cheesy goodness to melt all throughout the potato.
Once you got meltage, you’re good, time to eat!
This is what they looked like before they hit the grill-
I substituted Jalapeno peppers for the hatch chiles and instead of trying to measure out the long list of spices I just scooped out a tub of jalapeno flavored cream cheese, dumped in a couple of handfuls of shredded cheddar and mixed in the rub that I had on my desk for the stuffing. Way easier IMO.
The cooking instructions from the recipe were spot on, so follow those and you’ve got a simple killer game day appetizer. If this stiff can prepare them on his desk at the dock, you should be able to pull this off with ease.

My boy Erik Lorden loves to cook with charcoal. He feels that it gives better heat and flavor. For me it’s a big PITA and when I’m hungry it’s a gas grill for me.
What type of grill do you use? Which do you wish you used and why?
Not gonna lie those big green egg things seem like the coolest thing ever.
Now that I think of it we need to have a BBQ contest don’t we?
Where in the city can you grill outdoors without some special kind of permit and we could have a BBQ contest?

Sometime my best receipes are created when I’m in a rush to get dinner on the table! A few night ago, I’ pulled this meal together using what I had on hand in my refrigerator and pantry…the flavors of the peppercorn coriander crust and creamy goat cheese tomato filling was incredible…It pared nicely with herb mustard fingerling potatoes and garlic infused broccolini… Perfect recipe for summertime grilling!
