What are the most premium/gourmet cuts of meat for BBQing on a Kamado?

    I'm thinking of making a very limited BBQ book for people that grill on Kamado style BBQs.

    I'm thinking of including recipes for:
    Chicken Breast
    Salmon
    Halibut
    Tuna
    Pork Tenderloin
    Lamb Chops
    Baby Back Ribs
    Beef Ribs
    Filet Mignon
    Wagyu Beef
    Dry Aged Rib Eye

    I didn't include classics like pulled pork and beef brisket because I thought they were on the margin.

    What cuts would people like to see in a very limited gourmet bbq recipe book?

      Grass fed-and-finished beef in a steak or filet cut (it's popular and it's tougher than grain-fed).

      I respect the health benefits of grass fed beef, but I think the corn fed is a lot tastier. Do folks disagree?  Grass is more expensive so it's probably considered more premium....

      I'm convinced I need a grass fed option. Thanks!

        I used to eat it a lot. These days, I like meat that's not aged, and almost all grass-fed beef on the market is aged. It's strong-tasting, certainly - more gamy. Some grass-fed beef is kind of fishy tasting ('cause of those omega 3s).

        It's at about the same price point as organic and it's big with the low-carb, primal/paleo crowd, who are huge meat-eaters and probably make up a decent portion of your market.

        One thing that's a challenge is cooking it without making it tough. If you can come up with a good cooking technique, you've probably got a good selling point.

      Mackerel is fantastic when prepared on BBQ. The fish is itself is fatty, doesn't need additional oil and gets really fresh and juicy after BBQ treatment. smile
