BBQ Recipes for Your Grill

Updated on November 5, 2014

Delicious Grilling Food

It's Grilling Time

Summertime is the time for picnics and just cooking out in the backyard. Many people will grill hot dogs, hamburgers, brats, chicken, pork chops, steak,and fish.

Today, I will share with you a couple of barbecue recipes that are easy to make and so delicious. You can find these plus 98 more mouth watering recipes in one downloadable book. Plus 5 other great recipe books from making bread to getting that best cup of coffee.

Recipe Collection 1 - downloadable books Here

So, set up the picnic tables or lawn chairs. Make sure you have plates, cups and silverware handy.

Then crack open a cold one and start grilling.

To top it off, make sure that everyone brings a dish to pass around.

3 Things I Think About When Someone Mentions BBQ

  1. The first thing that I think about when someone mentions a barbecue having a picnic with family or friends.
  2. The second thing that I think about is what would go good with the main course.
  3. The third thing that I think about with having a barbecue is what type of meat that am I going to cook. Will it be chicken, pork, hamburgers, hot dogs, fish or even roasting vegetables on the grill?

Note: These recipes are set for the gas grills. If you have a charcoal grill, make sure that the coals have turned gray before placing the food on top. This would be considered a medium heat.

Me as a Domestic Goddess and Then Some


Am I a Domesticated Female Goddess?

I love to cook. This might give away my age, but often I mention my daughter who was in college and has since graduated.

I was raised in the domesticated female era. It was our duty to learn how to cook, sew, take care of the home. And if we wanted to spread our wings, (like me) have a career and hold down a full-time job. Of course many of us our the bread winners as well.

I tried to pass this on to my own daughter. She told me many times that her man would take care of the house and cook for her. She was never interested in learning about cooking or sewing. But now that has changed, I will often get a phone call for a recipe. Often she will ask me, "How do I do this?"

But she was a good sport when I wanted her to help me with a video. May I add that we can pass as sisters. How to Make Chicken Noodle Soup.

Tropical Grilled Pork Chops

Cooking Instructions


1 clove garlic, minced

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 pod cardamom seeds

1/2 teaspoon water, or as needed

1 teaspoon vegetable oil

1/4 cup rice wine vinegar

1/2 cup sugar

1 mango - peeled, seeded and chopped

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cilantro

2 teaspoons lemon juice

1 fresh jalapeno pepper, minced

1 1/2 cups unsweetened applesauce

3 pineapple rings, chopped

1 pinch white pepper

1/3 cup soy sauce

1/3 cup rice wine vinegar

6 pork chops


With a mortar and pestle, mash together the garlic, chili powder, cayenne, and cardamom seeds. Mix in enough water to form a paste.

Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in spice paste, and cook until it begins to bubble, about 30 seconds. Stir in vinegar; cook without boiling for 2 minutes. Stir in sugar until it dissolves. Mix in mango, salt, cilantro, lemon juice, and jalapeno; simmer 20 minutes. Stir in applesauce and pineapple; simmer 10 minutes more. Season with white pepper. Place in a bowl, cover, and refrigerate until ready to use.

To prepare marinade, mix 2/3 cup of the salsa with soy sauce and 1/3 cup vinegar. Place pork chops in a large resealable plastic bag, and pour marinade over chops. Seal tightly, and place in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

Prepare grill for medium-high heat. Drain marinade from bag, and heat in a saucepan until boiling.

Lightly oil grill grate. Place pork chops on the hot grill. Cook 10 minutes, or to desired doneness, turning once and basting occasionally with the boiled marinade.

Warm remaining salsa over medium-low heat. Serve pork chops topped with the salsa.

Easy Corn on The Cob for Your Grill

World's Largest Hamburger - Seymour, Wisconsin

Home of the Hamburger, Seymour, Wisconsin

Living in the great state of Wisconsin, I am proud to say that we also have the world's largest Hamburger. Every summer at the Seymour Fairgrounds, you can watch them make this gigantic hamburger.

The Seymour story has Charlie Nagreen serving the world's first hamburger at the Seymour Fair of 1885, some five months before the Hamburg claim. "Hamburger" Charlie supposedly decided to flatten a meatball and place it between slices of bread. Speaking to the Appleton (WI) Post Crescent in 1947, Nagreen claims to have originated the use of the word also. The program printed for the "Home of the Hamburger Celebration" in 1989 contained a reprinted account of the first Seymour Fair in 1885 and there was no mention Nagreen's invention (Anon. 1989).

It is clear from the Seymour story, however, that Charlie Nagreen did continue to make hamburgers and was rather well known on the local fair circuit until he was eighty years old. He was a busy entrepreneur; his daughter said he also peddled Christmas trees, party costumes, popcorn, fireworks and ice cream and also played in Nagreen's Orchestra. The descriptions of Nagreen written by people who knew him all spoke of his flair for promotion. "Hamburger Charlie" passed away in 1951 still claiming to be the first inventor of the hamburger.

Seymour has the most elaborate celebration and infrastructure of hamburger history in the Hamburger Hall of Fame (they plan to build a hamburger-shaped building) and an annual one day Burger Fest. In 1989 the world's largest hamburger (5,520 pounds) was served at the festival. There have been no challenges to the record so the annual big burger now is only around 1,000 pounds. This festival also has several competitive events around hamburgers - the hamburger relay and the ketchup slide.

          You are lucky you live in Wisconsin and are able to BBQ often. Trying being in Canada where our summer only last 2 weeks. The rest of the time you can't BBQ because of the bitter cold and blowing snow. Those photos and recipes sure makes one hungry. I gotta go and see if I can round up two slices of bread and a dab of peanut butter.

          I've actually never made ribs on the grill. I've ordered them in restaurants, and once I made some in the oven. I'll have to give this a try once our deck defrosts.

          Tri-Tip Steak should be marinated with a Kinder's brand marinade for 3 hours.

          Then grilled on high heat 5 minutes per side. Then taste the difference...
