Grilling for Memorial Day 2010

It’s Memorial Day Weekend!  Grilling season is now officially open!
*Of course, for me, it never really closes

Want more than some hot dogs on the hibachi? Here are some suggestions from the DadCooksDinner archives:

Grilled Ribeye Steaks with Mediterranean Herb Butter – Did I mention it won an award? And that my “semi-vegetarian” sister-in-law loves it?
Grilled Lamb Loin Chops, Michael Symon Style
Grilled Butterflied Chicken, Thai Brinerated
Grilled Boneless Pork Chops, Brined and Honey Glazed
Grilled Trout, Herb and Citrus Stuffed

Three more, because I love my rotisserie:
Rotisserie Chicken with Red Chile Marinade
Rotisserie Baby Back Ribs
Rotisserie Prime Rib Roast

*Oh, and before you start grilling – have you cleaned your grill this year?  Now is a good time to do it, while you have the long weekend off, before the party starts this weekend.  And then your grill will be ready to go for the rest of the summer.

Here are a couple more grilling recipes I’ve enjoyed recently, from across the web:
ThreeManyCooks: Beer Can Chicken
*I can’t believe I haven’t done a beer can chicken recipe yet.  I’ll have to get to work on that…

  1. Like you, my Weber stays busy all year long! I’ll be tending to the smoker this Memorial Day weekend. I have an 8lb pork butt and a couple dozen Jalapeno peppers. Going to make some pulled pork bbq and stuff the peppers with cream cheese and wrap them in bacon. Each will be smoked over a combination of hickory and apple wood. I do need to clean my grill! Maybe I’ll clean it while the smoker does the cooking, have a great weekend!

  2. Like you I grill year round, so thanks for the reminder to clean my gas grill!

    Happy Memorial Day from Three Many Cooks!

    Re: reminder to clean the gas grill: you’re welcome! I need to clean mine twice a year, I think – it was pretty awful come February. I had burners that weren’t lighting all the way, and the occasional grease fire when I cooked something fatty. I use my grill so much that once a year is just not enough!
