Grilling time

I have done this before, but refined the recipe.  It is not so simple now and it has a picture!

Cod on a Grill

·       1 package of bacon
·       2 pieces of Cod, trimmed and halved
·       1/2 teaspoon salt
·       1/2 teaspoon ginger
·       1/4 teaspoon hot pepper
·       juice of 1 lime
·       2 tablespoons chives or scallions, minced
·       1 tablespoon parsley, minced
·       1 teaspoon butter, soft

Mix the salt, ginger and lime juice together and slather the Cob pieces
mix the herbs and butter and place on one side of one piece of cod
place the second piece of cod on top and wrap completely in bacon
place in a removable wire rack
The grill must be a 2 tier grill
The charcoal should be getting white
add wood for some smoke just before placing the cod on the grill
The target temperature for the grill is 275 F
·       if the temperature goes above 300 F or
·       if the fire starts to flame
use these methods to reduce the temperature as the fat renders from the bacon:
·       use a pan of water to place between the cod and the fire
·       keep the grill closed and reduce the air flow
allow the bacon to cook to a soft doneness, it should not crisp about 20 minutes
Remove and serve
