Tips

Expert Tips

If your grill does not have a cover, shape two sheets of heavy-duty foil into a dome shape the same size as the grill rack. You can form the foil over bent coat hangers to easily retain the shape.

If you love herbs, you may like to try the goat cheese with herbs or cream cheese with chives in place of the regular goat cheese.
