Kielbasa Sausage, Bell Pepper & Onion on the Grill

This isn’t a recipe, more of a pictorial review..

One of Heidi’s favorite outdoor dishes is Kielbasa Sausage cooked with bell pepper and onion.  Our Son-in-law Jeff has perfected this dish over the last few years, but thought I would try my own twist, and revisit my old friends… The deep and shallow cast iron frying pans that make up the Lodge Logic Combo cooker. (I have been craving “Tater Tots” all week, so made that part of the equation for our dinner.

I wanted to use the charcoal side of our new "Smokey Hollow 4-in-1" grill, so fired up some briquettes in a Weber chimney for rapid preparation.

Got a good start, now its just wait for the top briquettes to turn white.

That done, laid them out on one side of the "elevator" to do a little indirect cooking on some Tater Tots.

Grates in place, kind of singing the Keilbasa sausage for flavor on both sides before cutting. Onions and bell pepper in deep fying pan.

Just about time to take that sausage to the cutting board.

We like 3/4" slices on a bias. Moved pre-heated pan to hot side.  After a couple minutes, added half a can of beer (MGD) to steam the veggies.

Closed hood to trap heat for roasting the Tater Tots.

Looks just about right.  Added a little "Sweet Baby Ray" BBQ Sauce, then stirred after this shot. Rotated both pans 180 degrees for more even cooking.

The Kielbasa dish is done, Tater tots need about another 5 minutes or so.

Plated up just the way we like it - and not a lot of cleanup. ;-)

Guess I should mention, we like Hillshire Farms Smoked Polska Kielbasa sausage…  This is a simple meal, easy to cook outdoors, and one of our personal favorites.  Enjoy!
