Grillin' and Chillin' on da Weekend

Disclaimer - No Chickens from my prior post were harmed in the making of this blog post

Ditto here, to share MY favorite part of our weekend spent with Uncle Tommy da Harley Man.  We do the same thing almost every weekend and it is my most impawtent work of da whole week.
Furst, Uncle Tommy da Harley Man takes da cover off of my best furrend, Mr.Grill.  As soon as he does this, I get all excited cuz I know that THE Grilling is about to commence.

Here I am, snoopervising the placement of da Chickens on Mr. Grill. 
I also make sure I COUNT da number or chickens pieces...this be very impawtent for later on.
Now comes da hard part. When doing da chicken grilling it takes bout  an hour for them to be done.
Butt, rest assured, I DO NOT leave the area around Mr. Grill during this entire process.

Looks like they are getting close to being done. You see, the best part of da grilling, is the CHICKEN SKINS!!!
You see, my momma won't let Uncle Tommy da Harley Man leave the chickens skins on after he grills them.  Something bout watching her waistline...and suggesting he should watch his too. 
This works out wonderful for US, cuz he when he takes all the wonderful crunchy, tasty greasy skins off.....HE GIVES THEM TO US!!!
This is also why I keeps careful count on number of he don't cheat us out of any (or steal one for himself)

Sometimes I find it necessary to make sure no chicken skin crumbs or drippings land on da ground.  I feel it is very impawtent to keep da grilling area clean!

Looking like they are almost done!!!  Come on with them already!!!!
Brudder Dude loves this moment so much, he even forgets bout his beloved Purple Snugga Wubba.(you can see it left unattended on da ground) 

Sometimes, he makes a mistake, and grills something other than the chicken pieces.  I am not so thrilled with that  particular decision on his part.  Have you ever tried to get da skin off a piece of fish..or a burger pattie?

Oh, and you may be wondering where Minna Krebs is in these pikturs.   If so, you are very observant.........well...
Hers went to pick up da BEER!!!!

PeeS....Don't forget to stop by Shelby's auction this weekend.....and shop til ya drop!
Shelby is a fellow Houstonian/Texan furrend, so she holds a special place in our hearts.

Ditto, I think I would like those chicken skins very much! It sounds delicious! I may have to go and bark at Dad to fire up our grill.

I hope Minna got the good stuff and saved some for the rest of you!

Our Mom LOVES crispy chicken skins so it is tough for a pup to get much more than a nibble here. We sure hope you all enjoy yours. And tell Minna to enjoy the beer:)

Hi Ditto
What a great job you have. Our mom is a vegan, so no grill around here.
Thanks for sharing your job. We really enjoyed drooling from afar.
Love Ruby & Penny

That is a very important job. We're supposed to help keep THEM healthy. We get the skin here, too, but usually it's off a roast chicken. That grill looks great.

AND we think it's important to get all that grease off the floor, it might attract mice, or someone might slip.

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

My problem is, if it's cooked, well I don't get to eat it. Dang! It smells so GOOD!

Mom sometimes will give me a nibble this is true but you guys got ALL THE CRISPY CHICKEN SKINS!

Lucky lucky dogs,

Hi every buddy,

Cripsy chicken skins sounds nummy! But we don't have a grill so no chance we'll be getting any of that kinda tasty stuff. Thanks for making me drool.

Oh, can I come help supervise the grillin'?
Looks like you have it covered...but no harm in asking!


Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Hey Ditto.. I heard that there will be an EXTRA Saturday coming next weekend. The two leggers call it Labor Day... I think your uncle could LABOR over the grill one extra time... just for your pleasure.
Did Minna Krebs make it home with the beers OK????

I hope you all enjoyed yummy things... and cold beers too!
