What's going on the grill today ?

I am always thinking of what to cook on my grill. It is the time of year where almost every meal is cooked there, any new suggestions ?

  1. Tonight -turkey thighs, marinated in lemon juice, oregano, black pepper, olive oil, and lemon zest. Red peppers, onions, mushrooms. Tomorrow, I think I'll make the leftovers into some sort of orzo salad - roasted red pepper, olives, whatever turkey is left over, parsley, orzo, a simple lemon/olive oil dressing.

      grilled chicken thighs-basting with water/vinegar/butter mix. Then using homemade white bbq sauce for dipping. Just something a little different than doing the ribs & brisket I always crave!

    2. Flank steak with chipotle-lime sauce:

      BTW, hi, everyone. New member, somewhat experienced cook with limited range of cuisines and skills. Love this board so far.

            I have flank steak tonight, goin' in some delish tacos. Always have a pasilla or 2 to throw on.

          2. Lamb burgers with oregano, thyme, coriander, coarsely ground pepper and a bit of crumbled feta all thrown in the mix, served in pita with lettuce, tomato, red onion, and typically tzatziki, but I am thinking of making a red pepper aioli. Tonight they will be alongside grilled sweet potato fries also seasoned with oregano.

              WOW, I've never thought of a greek inspired grilled burger, sounds fantastic.

              How do you make your tzatziki ??

                This is basicaly the recipe I use, but I prefer to use Lemon juice instead of vinegar. I also sometimes omit mint in favor of oregano.

            2. portobellos, red peppers & red onion in a balsamic marinade. place on a roll with cheese of choice & garlic aioli! Also love sweet potato fries on the side.

              1. Garlic roasted artichokes. Trim them, then place in large pot. Drizzle the artichokes with garlic/olive oil mixture. By drizzle, I mean get as much garlic flavor in between those leaves as possible. Steam in water with bay leaves, peppercorns, dash vinegar, coriander and salt. Halve, scoop out fibrous choke, then brush with garlic oil and grill. Lots of work, but worth it.
