20 Summer BBQ Recipes


Everyone seems to have their own summer barbecue traditions, right down to the way they spell it out their invitations (barbecue or BBQ--which to choose!).  Whether you like to keep things simple or love spending time by the grill, below are 20 recipes to please all grill masters alike.

Short Ribs

Short ribs are dangerously delicious and incredibly versatile.  Enjoy classic Boneless Short Ribs or you can try the Sticky Cola Ribs, Korean BBQ Short Ribs, or Sticky Ginger and Honey Basted Lamb Ribs.

Garlic Honey Brisket

Although brisket needs to be prepared far in advance of the barbecue, once it’s cooked it fits right in with the rest of your barbecue favorites.  I first came across the Garlic Honey Brisket in Jamie’s latest cookbook, and since then there’s been no going back.  Brisket is a tough meat but is so versatile, from the Barbecued Brisketto the Cuban Creole Stew Braised Beef Brisket.

Prime Grill Porcini Burgers

When it comes to burgers there are so many ways to prepare it from the Classic Beef Burger loaded with toppings such as Special Sauce, Spicy Fried Onions, Corn and Avocado Relish, and the Grilled Hawaiian Burger, to meatless burgers like the Fresh Salmon Burger, Porcini Burgers and California Tempeh Burger.

Whole Roasted Turbot

There are so many ways to prepare fish, and grilling happens to be on of the best of them.  Grill Salmon on Wine-Soaked Plank or enjoy it raw in Salmon Ceviche.  Try Whole Roasted Turbot or Roasted Branzino with Citrus and Caramelized Fennel, both of which can be wrapped in silver foil and roasted on the grill.  Or keep things simple with Fish Tacos with Avocado Slaw.
