I was playing a test save to look at something else and noticed that Boiling Frog Hot Pot was available on the grill. (This is an Off the Grid lot.) However when it was prepared there was no option to grab a serving.

 

Calling to meal caused Sims to come over, but they just stood around without getting a serving. The only way to eat it was to pick up a serving and then eat it from inventory or make a sack lunch and eat that.

Adding: I thought I'd check that this wasn't just my Sim and lot. So I gave a Sim a bunch of frogs and created an off the grid lot with all the Grills and off the grid stoves.The Boiling Frog Hot Pot (Really? Such a name.) seems to work fine if prepared on a stove. Not so with the Grills.

I'm also having this issue with Forager's Stew, you can't grab a serving from the Grill.  However, Frog Hot Pot doesn't even show up as a grill option on my off the grid lot (with lot trait selected) even though I have a ton of frogs in my Sims inventory.

Similar but slightly different problem. My sim can't finish cooking it; had the two frogs, cooked and stirred for a while, then walked away. When I click to resume, it just goes into his queue and instantly falls out the bottom. At home lot.
