Default Share your favorite barbecue recipes!

We make the same tired meal every weekend: grilled steak and shrimp marinated in teriyaki with grilled asparagus, yellow peppers and grilled pineapple. We tried to make something different yesterday and it did not turn out well. The only thing that saved the meal for me was some corn our guests brought over. The guy threw it on the grill, took some lime and chaat masala and rubbed it all over the corn. It was so delicious!

Can you please share your favorite recipe to make on the grill? If you can link a recipe, that would be even better! Thanks.

I suggest elotes as a side. I've posted the recipe for esquites here, but for a BBQ, I'd definitely go with elotes! It's the same recipe except that with elotes you leave the corn on the cob and slather the mayo and sprinkle the cheese yourself.

How about galbi/kalbi? I looooove Korean BBQ!

Thanks so much. So many great side dishes too!

You might know the answer to this. Yesterday my husband grilled some bacon wrapped pineapple and shrimp. Something made the texture of the shrimp mealy. The outside was pure mush. Our theory is that the pineapple juices had time to seep into the shrimp, because we didn't grill it right away. We put everything on skewers but then had to transport it and it wasn't in a cooler (just on a tray covered with tin foil). Could that have been the problem?

I'd guess it was the pineapple juice. It's pretty potent.

I follow this recipe/method for BBQ ribs. The only thing I don't do is make smoke bombs.

My husband and son love ribs. Thanks!

We made this yesterday.

My husband hated it. The guy never leaves a piece of meat on his plate so it must've been bad. Not sure if our guests were trying to make my husband feel better but they couldn't stop raving about it. They even loved the mealy shrimp.

Yikes, beer, lime juice, and wine! No thank you!
And cilantro in marinades is still pointless.

I really love hanger and skirt steak for grilling, btw. Flavorful, tender meat. Tri-tip is great, too:

That charred red pepper sauce is on my list to try SOON. I was mad at myself for forgetting to pick up a pepper the other day since we had steak last night.

I can always use ideas, good thread idea medussa! We really need to use our grill more. I love grilling brined pork chops.

Tri-tip is one of my most favorite things ever! Yum.

Super-good (and super-easy!) brunch idea for the grill: cut a red pepper in half and crack an egg into each side. Put on the grill and cook until the egg is set and the pepper is tender. Top with fresh herbs of your choice and serve. No muss, no fuss, and makes a great presentation, too.
