Here is a picture of my grandson cooking fajitas using a fajita cooker made for a Weber grill.  I picked it up in south TX last winter.  It works really well.

 

Your chicken fajitas look great.

When I look at the list of forums, I don't see "Cooking Challenges" on the front page. I think it should be there since I think it's one of the best parts of ChefTalk. Maybe it could be listed under "Cooking Discussions"? I look for them more often than anything else. Just an idea. Just now I was looking to see if there was a challenge of cooking lamb. I could look some more and find out but I think the challenges maybe should be on the front page of the forums(?) They are such a great part of this site.

Yeah it's usually featured front page.  Probably why participation is on the low side

 

Oh but I see three featured posts about chefs outfits and advertisements

PLAY TIME

(playing with your food is fun)

 

Take a gem squash, cut it in half and remove the pips.

(Cutting the squash in half was the hardest part. These things are tough)

 

 

One got filled with a cheese-mozarella mixture with oregano and garlic.

The other with spiced ground meat.

 

 

 

And then on an indirect fire on the braai

 

Meanwhile, you take some mushrooms and fill them with a wee bit of ground meat and wrap them in bacon

 

 

 

The gem squash took about an hour

 

 

 

And because I had some cheese left, I topped up the cheesy one

 

The mushroom were then added. Initially indirect and  finished on direct fire

 

 

A pretty decent lunch !

Braised it with a bit of bourbon, pernod,  black pepper, garlic,bay leaf, scallion and onion trimmings.  Started the party with bacon lardons saute-ing the aromatics. Olive oil and salt then on the hottest fire I could build.   The char adds a whole different flavor and texture.  Plated a unique artisinal plate

 

I'd like to plate it with chicory and some citrus segments as a salad, but ya know citrus is not in season now,  so it's just a drinking snack pairing

Lots of great looking food everyone.

 

For a quick dinner we made grilled chicken sandwiches.  

 

Grilled chicken, bacon, avocado, lettuce, tomato, onion on a dutch crust roll.

@MillionsKnives - that looks great - did you precook your octopus before grilling, or was your fire hot enough for fresh?

Braised then grilled. It is pretty much fool proof and you can do the grilled part even the next day.

Made these for a house party yesterday.  Non traditional.  I get BORED with your average spice rub.  Salt, pepper, paprika, garlic, sugar.  BORING

 

This one more savory and less sweet

 

5 hours  no wrap.   Before glazing it looks like this

 

Let the sauce set on the grill, cut them, then proceed to party

Ummm - for future reference the month isn't over yet - we usually run till midnight of the last day of the month.  I see you're in Sweden.  It's 1pm July 31 here.  I just checked it's 7pm July 31 where you are too - five hrs. to go.

I know,
But since i'm going on vacation in 3 hours and packing my bags it was either this or wait three days before i have a stable internet connection again.

I choose the first option.

Wow! Excellent choice of course, congrats chefbuba!

Thanks All!... There were some great entries this challenge, one that really peaked my interest was @MillionsKnives grilled clams & halibut. 

I have a theme and will post in a few.
