Those are Johnsonville brats roasting on the grill. The veggie mix is asparagus, onion, zucchini, & maybe a couple of mushrooms that had been librully doused with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, with a little sea salt and ground pepper.
The veggie containment device is a ceramic-over-steel contraption that exposes the food to lots of smoke without the risk of it sliding down through the grate. It also cleans up well in the dishwasher or with Barkeepers.
Perched at seven thousand feet at the edge of the Rio Grande Gorge near the confluence of the Red River and the Rio Grande meant a chilly evening where the warmth of the fire was welcome. The wine? Honestly don't recall but it was a decent cabernet.
TWC first encountered Johnsonville Brats at the annual Route 66 extravaganza in Berdoo. There they rolled out the Big Johnson Grill, which is reputed to be the longest grill in the world. I have not verified that claim, but it is a beaut!
The foil? Keeps the brats from rolling off of the grill into the coals.
