I haven't seen this thread here in this forum and I think that it is a worthy question.
Husband loves his brats; no cookout is complete without those. A Wisconsin thing I guess. I enjoy steaks marinated in teriyaki sauce. We both like grilled sweet corn. When I have enough ambition, I try other vegetables too; bell peppers, mushrooms, onions etc. on skewers. Someday when I amass enough ambition, I will crack open that Thai cookbook and try some satay.
EDIT: charcoal, gas, or other? Charcoal for us; every gas grill Husband has ever had has turned into a birdhouse.
Like Haz, I'll do just about anything on the grill. A current favorite that gets rave reviews is dry-rubbed ribs slow cooked with grilled sweet corn. We've also had a lot of jerked pork this summer which has worked really well with packet grilled onions, potatoes, and carrots with grilled peaches for dessert.
If it ever stops raining here, I think I'll be grilling tonight.

Also like to split a tomato - cover both halves with a little olive oil, basil, oregano, salt & pepper - let them roast on the upper rack (or on the side) until they almost fall apart - sprinkle with parmesan before you serve.
And you can't beat a vidalia (sweet) onion split and roasted with butter, salt & pepper.
Add me to the boring list: Burgers, Dogs, Steaks, Potatoes, Corn, Peppers & Onions in foil. I have great intentions of cooking more, like ribs, fish, shrimp.... just about anything. I would really like to smoke some meats, too. There just aren't enough hours in the day.

Gotta go with shrimp. Just simple in a marinade of butter, parsley, garlic, lemon juice and seasoned salt. Though I saw a new recipe in the latest Bon Appetit that I have to try for a shrimp salad where they grilled the shrimp I think with some smoked paprika and other simple stuff and added it to a spinach salad with hunks of avocado and grilled pearl onions. Yeah, that's gonna happen this weekend.
I don't get particularly amibitious on the grill. Other than the usual suspects, I think I peak out at flank steak with portobello mushrooms. I just wanted to add to the thread that I am STRICTLY a charcoal man.

If I am marinating, then steaks, chicken, or salmon.
If not, burgers and dogs.
I am not particularly fond of grilled veggies other than the summer squash mentioned above, but I love firing up the side burner to steam corn on the cob.
After 25 years of my grill, I just might get a new grill this year when they go end of season clearance sales. There are some pretty awesome stainless steel models out there that have built-in coolers, smooth surface side burners, lots of cutting board space, etc. When they come out with one that has a diswashwer, a sink, and a microwave then my whole kitchen can be outside.
My dad loved to talk about how when he was a kid, he went to the movies and watched a serial called The Green Archer, and how he saw the first 13 episodes and missed the 14th and final one where the Green Archer unmasks.
