Kenmore Greatest Generation of Grilling Cook-Off entry by Karen Haldeman, Ohio State Fair

As a child, the first grill I can remember our family having came from Sears. Except for camping trips, grilling for them was mainly burgers and hotdogs. As adults, My husband and I became more adventurous with grilling. We use the grill to cook vegetables, ribs, ham steaks, as well as other common outdoor cooking items. Our favorite food to grill is fish – salmon, trout, swordfish, etc. I do the preparation of the food for the grill and my husband does the actual grilling. We may cook different foods than my family did years ago, but we still prefer the simple charcoal grill that looks much like the ones both of our families used back then.
