Citrus, Garlic and Chipotle Marinated Chicken

The citrus and garlic flavors really come through in the cooked chicken, along with a hint of smokiness from the chipotles. The acid from the citrus juice also makes for a moist and tender bird. While the chicken takes on some of the marinade flavor in as little as 4 hours, you really need to soak i...

Shrimp Teriyaki on the Grill

I'm usually a "no shells" guy when it comes to grilled shrimp. I'd prefer to just eat them right off of the stick, all Caveman style and what-not. This shrimp teriyaki marinade contains a lot of sugar though, which tends to caramelize quickly over high heat, so those shells really save the day by p...

Orange and Soy Marinated Chicken Thighs

There is a bad rumor going around that borders on libel and I'm not going to stand for it any longer! This rumor has circulated for so long that most think it is fact.

Grilled Pork Chops with Basil, Lemon and Garlic

I have a secret for you basil growers out there (who isn't a basil grower?).  It is all about the prunin'.  I've got this thing down to a science now.  You see, I LOVE basil.  Mostly because it is one of the only edible plants I seem to be capable of growing.  The problem was, it would get all ...

Cilantro and Soy Marinated Pork Tenderloin

My favorite thing to do with this cut of meat is to mix up a simple, but potent marinade.  Pork tenderloin soaks up the marinade rather quickly, producing a juicy and really flavorful main course in as little as a two hour soak. Got a few hours before dinner?  Yeah, you have time, let's do it.

Maple Bourbon Salmon on a Cedar Plan

When we attended a bourbon tasting a few weeks ago, and grilling came up in conversation (it usually does with us for some reason), the natural recipe that came to everyone was salmon on the grill. So when a friend suggested we get together and grill some salmon I figured I'd revisit this old grill ...
