The "Social Circle" is a group effort between readers, social networkers and the editors. Every Monday, we ask a question via Facebook and Twitter and then post the responses from our Facebook "likers" and Twitter followers in this column. Well-known Milwaukee movers and shakers will contribute, too.

Burgers and brats on the grill are a summertime staple, but sometimes cook-outs get wild and other less predictable food items end up over the flame.

The Social Circle reported grilling a number of such items, from avocado to a Pop Tart. What’s the most unusual item you’ve grilled? Weigh in via the Talkback feature.
