Best Grilling Recipes

There was that time when our Big Green Egg grill was frozen shut. I was out of town so Bill and Nick carried it into the house to let it defrost. Mind you, this thing weighs a ton. And is full of charcoal and ash. That is determination! Obviously, we do a ton of grilling at our house, so over the years, I have collected plenty of barbecue recipes from entrees to desserts. Here are some favorite grilling recipes from the blog.

Why Grill Instead of Roasting?

  • Grilling imparts a smoky flavor as well as a charred surface. But the size of the meat often will designate the cooking method.
  • A large roast or turkey must be monitored more carefully if grilled, compared with chops, steaks or burgers which take much less time.
  • The temperature of a gas grill is more easily regulated than a charcoal grill. Larger cuts of meat or whole birds can be cooked on charcoal grills but more coal may need to be added as it turns to ash.
  • The browning, or Maillard reaction, occurs above 285º F, which occurs with both grilling and roasting, but the grilling process is generally is faster due to the higher temperature of most grills.
  • So at our house, the taste of grilled foods wins over oven roasting, weather and time permitting!
