Summer is in full force, and with the 4th coming up I'm sure we're all in grilling mode. Just wanted to hear everybody's favorite things to cook outside.

Mine has to be baby back ribs. Indirect heat on a charcoal grill, because I dont have a smoker. 3 hours, dry rubbed in dust.

Its wierd. I like to cook, but im not a big griller. I dont own a grill, so maybe thats why, but i could always do charcoal if i wanted to. I like to grill chicken and peppers, mostly.

Dry rub with ribs is the only way to go.

I've had a wet marinade with ribs, and never again.

I love grilling pork belly. Buy fresh, not frozen always then put oyster sauce, a little bit of salt, chicken bouillon in granules form, and a squeeze of fresh lemon. Simple as that. Grill it to medium or however you want, but if it's your first time grilling pork belly, remember that they burn really fast due to the high fat content. Serve it over white rice, but you can enjoy it right after grilling it. As for dipping sauce, soy sauce with minced fresh garlic, onion, dash of white vinegar, and a little bit of sriracha. ENJOY!

As for ribs, i've tried this recipe recently and it wasn't bad at all.

Rub (http://www.thesmokering.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5274&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0)

Glaze!! (http://www.thesmokering.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=10297&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0)

You're Welcome!

Also, we really need a food forum!

EDIT: For the pork belly, you can buy them already sliced or you can buy them whole. If you buy them whole, make sure you slice it with at least 1/2" to 3/4", but not thicker than that. I'd say somewhere in between of 1/2-3/4". As for length, it doesn't matter. Don't buy the cube ones, they're too thick.

i make some pretty damn good chicken. i have a secret recipe that people have been trying to steal for years. i get calls about once a week for people asking me to season chicken for them or come by and grill with them because they like it so much.

we actually thought about doing a food truck with it but i dont have time for that ****.

i also like to grill ribs. indirect heat on a charcoal grill. light rub, begin saucing 2/3rds of the way through.

I dust my burgers.

I also buy 1/2 beef 1/2 pork and make parties. Best of both worlds.
You can stuff your burgers with cheddar or pepperjack cheese. Juicy Lucie.

My uncle grills these burgers for his birthday. Stuffs them with feta/goat cheese and sun dried tomatoes. I asked him if it tastes better if you don't stuff it, and he's never not stuffed the burgers. Sounds bizarre, but its so damn good.

Nothing beats a homemade Juicy Lucy w/ Bacon and Cheddar, Dust, Garlic, Onion, Salt, Pepper and Hot sauce (all mixed pre cooking with the bacon and cheddar stuffing the middle)

No ketchup, no lettuce, no tomato, no onion, maybe a little cheese and bacon on top, no extra hot sauce.

So flavorful its unbelievable.


My favorite is also ribs cooked with indirect heat on charcoal. I'm a big fan of parboiling sausage and peppers in beer with italian seasoning in cast iron on the charcoal and then finishing it off on the grill also.

There is room for error with stuffing burgers though.

I've had the cheese scorching hot and almost burned my tastebuds off. It takes an extra step, but if you do it right, it is a piece of art.

lol throw some recipes out people....I could use some tips

These numbers are guesses.. I don't use measuring cups and such but I'm sure you can figure it out

About 1/3 cup orange juice
3ish tablespoons of soy sauce
2ish tablespoons of honey
3 cloves of garlic (chopped)
Magic Dust to taste... If you dont have and/or are too lazy to make magic dust, you can get by with black pepper and paprika to taste

Mix all that together and you have my favorite chicken marinade.

I usually let it sit for about 4-6 hours and then grill em up. I usually use breasts btw, but any chicken works.

06-26-2012, 07:22 PM

A little different every time as far as seasoning, but basically I use the no skin fillets, marinate in salt, pepper, chili powder, soy sauce, lemon juice (or even OJ...anything citrusy), olive oil, lots of diced garlic, little dijon mustard and Mirin or white wine. Marinate first thing in the morning and cook it in the evening.....5 min on each side (depending on thickness).


Usually eat it like a burger on a bun. LOVE IT.

lol throw some recipes out people....I could use some tips

My current favorite:

Shrimp marinated in:
garlic (a lot)
lime juice
tequila
olive oil
little bit of white wine vinegar
salt
pepper
chili powder (or a canned chipotle with the adobo sauce from the can)
cumin
fresh chopped cilantro

Not good on amounts, but enough olive oil, tequila and lime juice (2 limes?) to cover the shrimp and the rest to taste....can't go too heavy on a marinade in my opinion.

Skewer and grill 2 1/2 min on each side (or lately using a grill wok so I don't have to skewer them all)

eat with soft taco shells, guacamole, diced tomatoes and my current favorite:

Roasted Tomatillo Salsa. Recipe here: http://www.rickbayless.com/recipe/view?recipeID=324

And yes that is Skip Bayless' brother. Recipe is awesome.

Grilled asparagus is where it's at. I just toss it lightly in olive oil with salt and pepper. Maybe a little garlic.

Steak, followed by hamburgers and hot dogs.
charcoal grilled hotdogs are great. best way to do them for sure.

Dry rub with ribs is the only way to go.

I've had a wet marinade with ribs, and never again.
yeah dry rub is the way to go.

i also like to grill ribs. indirect heat on a charcoal grill. light rub, begin saucing 2/3rds of the way through.
you sauce that early? i dont sauce it until the very end. maybe 15-20 minutes prior to taking them off.

my family and i grill all year too. stick the grill right outside our sliding door.

Salmon

Don't you still get the gas aroma/flavor? Or is it just enough to light it and then off?

i did a grilled watermelon, prosciutto and fresh moozarell salad back in the day... it was amazing.

marinated the watermelon in a basil-balsamic vinaigrette first (sounds weird, i know, but it was ****ing fantastic) then grilled it for a little until the juices caramelized and really contrasted the salty, fatty pork and the creamy cheese.

Grilled tomatoes topped with garlic butter toasted breadcrumbs with a slice of fresh mooz on top of each slice of tomato melted very slightly and then each tomato slice was cut into 1/4's and served as a bite size appetizer

I can vouch for the grilled pineapple and watermelon. It only works though if you actually get the good ones, the sweet one. I tend to buy my fruits from local farmers simply because here, you get bad fruits from big supermarkets. Too muvh water, less natural sweetness. Try it first before you grill em.

Also, add peaches to that list. Since they are already sweet, when you grill them, they even become sweeter. Great for salad or simply just a part of dessert.

That sounds pretty fantastic. I usually just coat it with some balsamic, OO, basil, grill and eat with some mozzarella.

Also good, grilling asparagus and top with halved grape tomatoes sauteed in balsamic and a little blue cheese or Gorgonzola.

Favorite: a NY Strip steak(dusted with montreal seasoning)

..but strangely, one of my favorite things to grill are homemade quesadillas. It's just something about those grill marks that makes it so good!

Honorable Mention: stuffed burgers, sausage n peppers, pineapple slices, marinated chicken

What style BBQ sauce? Like whats the base of the BBQ sauce?

I'm going to assume you mean like a tomato or ketchup based sauce because thats what America has grown to mean by BBQ sauce, but you never know in a true bbq/grillin thread.

I'm just curious

Grilled up a tbone because of this thread.

First time I've ever grilled asparagus and I must say its the best way I've eaten asparagus.

Just coated each one in a very good garlic olive oil and fresh crushed pepper and it was divine. The crust you get from the grill is the best.

Why boneless?

That's where the flavor is at man.

Also, check out S.Carolina BBQ sauce recipes. Apple cider vinegar and sugar base. Amazing.

I just like the extra meat. The best flavor is from the fat, and it still has plenty of that. I'm looking for a good Carolina recipe, I've tried a few and can't get them right. Do you use white or brown sugar? Mustard or no mustard?

4 cups of mustard
8 oz of beer
1/2 cup Apple cider vinegar
8 tabls brown sugar
1/2 cup of tomato puree
2 tsp worchester sauce
1 tabls cayenne
1 tabls of black pepper
1 tabls of salt
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder

We add more cayenne most of the time for more heat, but its great. This stuff is meant for BBQ PORK. They have so many kinds, this is just a mustard kind. Never tried the tomato recipe, but I should get around to it.

I didn't even like asparagus until I had it grilled. Once you have it grilled you can't have it done any other way.

Here's another (Carolina style, similar to Maurice Bessinger's - that racist prick who makes really good food):

1.5 cups yellow mustard (french's)
7 tbsp brown sugar
8 tbsp tomato paste
5 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp granulated garlic

Whisk together in saucepan over medium heat, simmer until sugar is dissolved, remove from heat and let cool

Once again, best with pork. I mean real BBQ is really all about pork IMO, but what do I know, I'm from NJ lol.

Stuffed steak. It's just unreal. Get a huge cut of beef and have it cut so that there's about an inch, inch and a half of the middle of the cut hollowed out. Stuff it with red, green, orange, yellow peppers and onions. Hell any veggie you like really. Mushrooms ect. Turn one side of your BBQ up on max and after it heats up put the cut of beef on the side that's not on. Leave it on the grill with the cover closed until the beef's cooked to your liking. One of my favorite dishes.

You can get a good cut of pork too and make sure it's fully defrosted. You rub sea salt all over the cut of pork and tie thin rope around the cut of pork in a few places so it doesn't fall apart while cooking because it gets so tender. Turn on one side of the grill to slightly above medium level, leave the other off and put the cut of pork on that side. Make sure the cover to the grill is closed. Cook for 3-4 hours slowly. The sea salt makes an amazing crust around the meat and the meat is tender and flavourable. I probably like this almost as much as the stuffed steak.

Now I'm getting frickin hungry.

Johnsonville bratwurst by far.

I grill a lot of different things though. My red potatoes are delicious. Quarter them and then put in a container with melted butter, parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, Magic Dust and shake. Most people would throw it in foil but I do it right on the grill on this (http://www.realrecreationusa.com/p/Grill-o-sheet-Bbq-Grill-Topper-1019617.html). Tastes much better and the outside gets nice and crispy with the flavor on it.

Yeah, the Carolina sauce is exceptional with BBQ pork. I try to not do it all the time, just because I want it to be a special occassion when grilling. Every grilling session is a special occassion, but the Carolina sauce with pork is orgasmic. My uncle makes a ton of his recipe, and you can almost drink it.

Tried this tonight on some ribs. I felt like it needed a little more zest so next time I'll add a little more cayenne. Otherwise it was pretty good...

use the 17th st sauce with the dust. the most winningest bbq combo ever.


1 cup ketchup (I use Hunt's)
2/3 cup seasoned rice vinegar
1/2 cup apple juice or cider
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce or worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons prepared yellow mustard
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/3 cup bacon bits, ground in a spice grinder
1/3 cup peeled and grated apple
1/3 cup grated onion
2 teaspoons grated green bell pepper

Cooking Directions
Combine the ketchup, rice vinegar, apple juice or cider, cider vinegar, brown sugar, soy sauce or worcestershire sauce, mustard, garlic powder, white pepper, cayenne, and bacon bits in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir in the apple, onion, and bell pepper. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, 10 to 15 minutes or until it thickens slightly. Stir it often. Allow to cool, then pour into sterilized glass bottles. A glass jar that used to contain mayonnaise or juice works real well. Refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
Makes 3 cups
Variation: to make this sauce a little hotter, add more cayenne pepper to taste, approximately another 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon. Be careful; a little cayenne goes a long way.
