Key West Chicken

Rating: 4.5 stars 1567
This recipe from the Florida Keys has been given to almost everyone I know. It is the best marinade for chicken, and it only takes 30 minutes from prep till you can grill! It's a great blend of flavors with honey, soy sauce, and lime juice. If you have time, try marinating overnight for the fullest flavor.

Best Hamburger Ever

Rating: 4 stars 769
These burgers are the best on the grill in the summertime. Jam-packed with all kinds of stuff, and no tasteless bread crumbs!

Grilled Lemon Yogurt Chicken

Rating: 4.5 stars 216
There is something special about what yogurt does to chicken in its smoky, sizzling time over charcoal. It imparts a tangy flavor that lifts all the other flavorings. It tenderizes slightly, without turning the meat into mush. It grills to a caramelized dark brown without tasting burnt.

Portobello Sandwiches

Rating: 4.5 stars 312
Quick, juicy burgers. My friends and I eat them at least once a week!

Grilled Garlic and Herb Shrimp

Rating: 4.5 stars 373
Lemon-garlic grilled shrimp with paprika for an enhanced smoky flavor.

Steve's Bodacious Barbecue Ribs

Rating: 4.5 stars 32
These make real mouth-watering 'Pig-cicles'! They take a while to cook, and when you eat them, you'll have pork fat smeared from ear to ear! Mmm! Mmm! I like to smoke with hickory wood, but any of your favorite will suffice.

Marinated Greek Chicken Kabobs

Rating: 4.5 stars 307
This is a chicken kabob recipe that I would love to share! Plan to marinate for 3 hours. Serve with Greek rice!

Beerbecue Beef Flank Steak

Rating: 4.5 stars 37
There are very few things in life as beautiful as a glistening, smoky flank steak on a grill, being painted with beerbecue sauce. Any beer will do, but try to use something on the more aggressive side if you can. The subtle bitterness from the beer in the background really makes this sauce pop.

Grilled Pineapple

Rating: 4.5 stars 250
These are SO easy and really good. The hot sauce gives it an extra kick and cuts the sweetness. They can help with patience while the rest of the grilled feast comes together, but be warned, they go quickly!

Greek Chicken

A very good light summer dish. I serve it with sliced tomatoes, feta cheese, and garlic bread.

Grilled Jalapeno Poppers

Rating: 4.5 stars 84
Best poppers you'll have off your grill! Any left over cheese mixture makes a good spread for crackers while you're waiting.
