My cooking tragedies
I love to grill but i don't know how to start a charcoal grill. i wanted to make my grilled pineapple dessert. After 20 minutes of trying to start the grill, I finally got it started. I added the pineapples and when i went to taste them....they tasted like starter fluid....wasted a whole pineapple! But, I learned a valuable lesson about starting a grill....wiat 30 minutes before adding anything to it! lol
