Cedar Planked Salmon

Rating: 5 stars 840
Tops for smoky flavor, and speedy enough for weeknight grilling.

Cajun-Style Blackened Snapper

Rating: 4.5 stars 255
These perfectly spiced pan-fried snapper fillets are super-fast to make.

Haitian-Style Fried Chicken

Rating: 4.5 stars 7
This is a Haitian-rooted fried chicken recipe. It varies from American-style fried chicken but is just as good. The longer you leave it to marinate, the better. You may sprinkle freshly squeezed lemon juice on top if you like.

Pecan Honey Glazed Fried Chicken

Rating: 5 stars 3
Nothing says 'south' like good fried chicken, but when pecan honey glaze is drizzled on top then it takes it to a whole new level. I was inspired when my husband and I visited a soul food restaurant, and I just had to come home and duplicate it. I must admit I think I hit the nail on the head - at least my family admits it. Enjoy!

Southern Grilled Barbecued Ribs

Rating: 4.5 stars 305
These ribs will have the smoky flavor without all the grilling time. It takes just 30 minutes on the grill to give the ribs that smoky flavor Southerners expect. You can use this recipe for spare ribs too, just bake for 15 minutes longer.

Eaton's Easy Pulled Pork

Rating: 5 stars 35
This is one of the easiest pulled pork recipes I've made. Since my husband was from 'south of the Mason-Dixon line' and raved about pulled pork in Virginia/South Carolina, I had a tough job ahead of me, but he loved it (!) so I guess I passed the test.

Jay's Jerk Chicken

Rating: 4.5 stars 735
This is one of my nephew's favorite grilled recipes. Jerk means Jamaican barbecue. This well rounded flavor of sweet, hot, herbal and spicy chicken can be served with rice, beans or pasta. Or just make a chicken sandwich out of it! I also add garlic and a kiwi to the marinade.
