Super Simple Grilled Corn on the Cob

-bratzy1

Grilled Tuna Steak

Grilled Porterhouse Steak With Paprika-Parmesan Butter

-DeliciousAsItLooks

Peruvian Grilled Chicken

This is a great recipe adaptation for Peruvian-style rotisserie chicken that you can make on your grill. It replaces some hard-to-find ingredients with spices you can find at most grocery stores.

Grilled Chipotle Chicken Quesadillas

-DebS 2

Grilled Eggplant With Ricotta & Tomato

“We enjoyed this easy, tasty side dish! Loved the fresh basil.”

Grilled Chicken Breast With Barbecue Glaze

“I loved this recipe! Grilled up a bunch and saved it in the fridge for later meals/recipes throughout the week.”

-Jonathan Melendez

Oven BBQ Ribs

"I have made this recipe many times to rave reviews, and people licked the platter clean! The only alteration I make is I slow cook the ribs at 325 degrees for about three hours. This seems to allow the flavors more time to permeate the meat plus makes for ribs which melt in your mouth."

-LittleMsMartha

Grilled Garlic Pork Tenderloin

"People, this is exceptional! The flavor is so magnificent you must try this. I did not change anything.”

-Charlotte J

Easy Foil BBQ Potatoes

“This is a great recipe for a simple baked potato with a lot of flavor! My family loved them!”

-Allison S.

Rock & Roll BBQ Brisket

"We had never cook a brisket before and debated between this recipe and another with high ratings. I'm glad I picked this one! It was amazingly good! It's a little spicy and just perfect!”

-MichelleinHI

Grilled BBQ Chicken Legs

"I only had enough time to marinade them for two hours so the flavor wasn't all the way through but I'll definitely do it longer next time as these legs are the best I've ever had.”

-QuarterSwede

BBQ Ribs

“They were the best ribs i have ever eaten. My 30 guests agreed."
