Sweet and Spicy Grilled Shrimp

Rating: 4.52 stars
This is something a little more flavorful for grilling shrimp. This recipe is also delicious brushed onto bacon wrapped shrimp.

Ultra Easy Pineapple Chicken Kabobs

Rating: 4.45 stars
For people who love chicken, pineapple, and pepper.

Grilled Spanish Mustard Beef

Rating: 4.58 stars
Despite the awkward name, this fast and user-friendly wet rub did a fine job flavoring some carne asada I grilled recently (yes, that was redundant). I'm calling it Spanish mustard since I spiked the Dijon with a couple of my favorite ingredients of all time: smoked paprika and sherry vinegar. You can use any thin flap meat (flap steak, skirt steak, round steak) instead of the flank steak.

Knife and Fork Grilled Caesar Salad

Rating: 4.75 stars
A different Caesar salad and it is from your grill! Great with any grilled meat. I use a Caesar dressing from this site.

Kafta (BBQ)

Rating: 4.42 stars
The yummiest preparation mixture for ground beef EVER! I have made this Lebanese Meat for all of my friends and family and have HAD to leave the recipe with everyone! Meat mixture can be used for everything... meatballs, meatloaf, BBQ skewers, BBQ'd hamburgers. FOR BEST, AUTHENTIC LEBANESE TASTE, DO NOT OMIT OR SUBSTITUTE INGREDIENTS (until you have made it this way ;P )

Honey Mustard Beer Brats

Rating: 4.29 stars
This recipe is very easy and makes delicious bratwurst. My guests always ask for these during football season. You won't be able to get enough onions and peppers in the slow cooker because every time we make them, we run out! This recipe is for 10. If you have a very large slow cooker, you can get 15 in, but most can only hold 10 (you may need another slow cooker if making more).

Juicy Grilled Corn On The Cob

Rating: 4.29 stars
Doesn't matter if you use fresh corn or frozen, this recipe will make it the best corn you've ever eaten!

Grilled Fruit Kabobs

Rating: 4.13 stars
A delicious summer dessert, especially when you are grilling outside already. You can have these cooking while you are enjoying your burgers or steaks! Excellent over vanilla ice cream.

A Very Popular BBQ Sauce

Rating: 4.56 stars
This recipe has a lot of sweetness and spice, so if you're looking for a classic BBQ sauce that's easy to make, look no further. It is very popular with users of 'ceramic' type smokers and grills, (i.e. Primo, Kamado, Big Green Egg, etc.)

World's Best Honey Garlic Pork Chops

A quick and simple grilled pork chop that everyone will love featuring a simple and easy glaze.

Cajun Blackened Catfish

Rating: 4.62 stars
