Cooking.Outdoors's picture
Here is my take on the classic Italian Meatball Sandwich, grilled on the Island Grillstone, smothered with fresh pesto sauce and piled into a delicious mutli-seed bun. I’ll show you how to grill those meatballs perfectly without losing a single one into the fire! Cooking on a lava rock doesn’t get any better than this!
