I wanted to try and do something with food cooked on the grill but not be the typical meal.  so i decided to make a hearty pasta salad.  i used thighs, grilled corn, diced pepper, and green onions.... i forgot to mention i also used diced swiss cheese and sharp chedda.  i didn't grab a pic of the corn off the cob... as it got a bit messy. 

seasoned the chicken with Montreal seasoning.... we love the stuff.  after it came off we had a few "samples" , the skin was amazing.... then i deboned it.



thigh meat deboned.  i season my thighs under the skin and then wrap the skin all around... so the inside meat gets really good flavor.



all diced up.... i wanted small pieces as i used mini penne pasta. 



here is the salad pre-chicken and pre-dressed.  grilled corn flavor is soooo good in this.



i wanted a simple cream based dressing.... miracle whip and sour cream.  My girls loved oil based dressing.  so i separated and made two.  the one with the miracle whip and sour cream is sooooo very good.  it really brings out the charred flavor of the corn and the smokey grilled chicken.  i love it.  this is the flavor i was going for.  the other one is very good as well.  i used olive oil, balsamic, and a balsamic dressing. it is very tasty as well.  but the flavors though they melded together.... the flavor of the salad dressing is more pronounced.  i prefer the true grilled flavors shining through.  it was a lot of chopping/dicing/prep... but.... I'm pretty satisfied with the outcome.  it was a nice change from the usual sunday meals.

This was last night's dinner coming to post a little late. Grilled skirt steak, seasoned with Tatonka dust, with leeks, bell peppers, and a sweet potato.

18.5" OTG chugging along







I love skirt steak, and Tatonka dust is a pretty awesome seasoning.

She thinks shes people




After all is side and done, the chicken was still nice and juicy. Just the right amount of smoke. I'd eat again.
Next time I'll do half the dip recipe. It was a lot for 4 people.
My apologies for not posting plated pics... I was a few beers deep and really hungry.
