  1. We had a nice thread about grilling cookbooks and recipes last summer. Check it out:

    1. veggies on the grill are always yummy! Winter seemed to bypass North Texas, but I'm sure not complaining!! I love my grill!

      1. re: Barbara76137

        Oh yes. I have an eggplant in the fridge and some zucchini. Maybe I will grill those with the Chilean sea bass I saw on sale.

      2. Some of my best food on the grill has come from the cookbooks of Steven Raichlen. His "Barbecue Bible" is the most worn-out cookbook I own. He has a few websites with lots of recipes that you can google up.

        Consider kalbi (Korean grilled short ribs), jerk chicken, kebabs/sates from any meat and veg, beer can chicken, bacon-wrapped shrimp, fajitas, grilled fish in chermoula marinade.

        This is one of the best grilled chicken dishes I've ever done, from Raichlen's Barbecue Bible - Bademiya's Justly Famous Chile-Coriander Chicken:
        I make a few slashes into the chicken to get the marinade down into the chicken, and like the extra edges that get crispy. I have also replaced the caynne for fresh green hot chiles.

        This is one of my favorite all-purpose marinades for grilling. It works well with chicken, beef and pork. It makes a big batch, so I freeze it in 2-cup containers to last through the summer.

        29-oz. can pineapple juice
        1 cup dry sherry
        1 cup soy sauce
        1/2 cup rice wine vinegar (any mild vinegar will be good
        )1/2 cup sugar
        3-4 smashed and pureed cloves of garlic

        1. This is a fantastic recipe that I've made a number of times, but usually make it with a mushroom and mint polenta

          North African Spiced Leg of Lamb

          I also agree on vegetables. Nothing like a beautiful day with a nice med rare ribeye and some roasted peppers, zucchini, and portabello mushrooms roasting away on the grill.

          I love sliced polenta on the grill too!

          1. Any weather is grillin' weather to me.

            And I second the plaudits for Raichlen. The man knows his bidniss.
