Default Italian Street Food with pr0n...

I'm Italian-American, and love traditional Italian-American foods. Today, I decided to do a little bit of Italian-American street food, but not the way it is normally done.

Sausage and peppers is a traditional working man's food, that I love. It is usually cooked in a big fry pan, but I figured it could be done on my Smokey Joe, and taste mighty fine. It was better than I expected.

I took some mild Italian sausage, some red and yellow bell peppers, and some yellow cooking onion, and stuck it on skewers to make it easy to manage on the Smokey Joe. The skewers were just a means to an end. They just made it easier to cook on a grill. I coated the meat and veggies with olive oil, and sprinkled it with finely chopped fresh oregano and basil from my garden, and some fresh ground black pepper.

I grilled it, and put it in a bowl all by itself. Hey, it's street food.

Here is a shot of the skewers before cooking, on the grill, and the money shot in a plain white bowl -- right before I devoured it.

I will never do sausage and peppers in a skillet again. This is way better. The little bit of grilling char makes a big difference. The sweet flavor of the peppers were way more pronounced then when I do the same dish on the stove in a skillet. Grilling rocks!

That is a thing of beauty! I do something similar with brats instead of the Italian sausage. I'll give it a shot your way next time.

BTW, caseydog doesn't sound Italian. I never would have guessed
