Complete and utter failure. Yup, you read that right. My first attempt at charcoal grilling ended in failure. My folks got me a small grill for birthday, and I wanted to try it. Apparently, I know nothing about grilling. I thought I could, but nope. I got these beautiful steaks to grill, and once I cooked them up on the stove top they were great. Maybe I need to find someone to give me grilling lessons. Oh well, I will try again later!
