Easy Grilled Pizza
Summer entertaining shouldn't be about spending hours in the kitchen tossing together elaborate meals when guests come over to play. Nope. Dinner should be effortless, preferably served on paper plates, and cooked on the grill creating hardly any cleanup. When kids are involved, finding a dish that keeps both adults and tots happy can be challenging, but not with this seriously easy dish.
Sure, you can cornmeal your crust and slide your tasty pie directly on the grill, but I erased the worry that yours won't with my cheap pizza-grilling secret - throw-away aluminum pizza pie tins from the grocery store. This month's Shine Supper Club is about sharing cookout secrets, and this is my no-fail way to make summer entertaining fun and easy. And you know how much I love pizza (here, here, and here...).
Make things even easier by using a store purchased pizza crust and you are good to go. This is so fun for the...Read More »

My guests often ask what my secret is for making the perfect BBQ meat. It's a combination of "secrets" that have been picked up over the years, and I will now share them with you.
For maximum flavor, I marinate the meat overnight in a sealed plastic bag. Be sure to remove the bag about a half hour before grilling, so that it's room temperature. The amount of ingredients can vary, so feel free to put more or less of anything you choose.
The top coating after grilling should be basted on with a brush just before removing it from the grill, so that it doesn't burn on. It doesn't matter what meat you marinate and baste, the flavor will still be phenomenal!
1 cup soy sauce
2 cloves garlic (minced)
1 tsp oregano
Grill meat to desired perfect, then use basting brush to add:
1 cup desired BBQ sauce (I prefer Hickory or Whiskey flavored)
1/2 cup orange marmalade
2 tablespoons soy sauce
Blend together in small bowl and have ready to apply j...Read More »

Everybody grills a little bit different, but I have a couple of great ideas to have a juicy, tender, marinated Steak for your summer picnic or outdoor BBQ.
Step 1: Get some steak: Be it Rib Eye, New York, T - Bone, or Prime Rib.
Step 2: Buy a Marinade: I like to purchase Jack Daniels original recipe marinade. Found at most grocery stores. I marinated the meat overnight. Makes it juicy, and tasty.
Step 3: Prepare a rub. I found this basic rub recipe online and altered it a bit. Mine only used 4 of the ingredients in different quantities.
1 tablespoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons ground black pepper
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon mustard powder
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon brown sugar
4 tablespoons ground paprika
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
Prepare Le Grill: Light it and turn it on high heat. Wait for it to get to temperature.
Take steaks out from the fridge. Sprinkle on your rub; some like it heavy, others lik...Read More »
