1. Grilled Drumsticks with Oranges and Green Olives
Drumsticks have much more flavor than chicken breasts, you can eat them with your fingers and they are usually inexpensive. For a bit of exotic allure, serve them with a Moroccan-inspired mixture of oranges and olives enlivened with lemon juice, garlic and hot peppers.

2. Grilled Cowboy Steak with Barbecued Leeks
This dish is a variation on a classic. Leeks are a nice change from the usual grilled onions that accompany steaks. Instead of serving it with a typical horseradish sauce, mix chopped dried apricots with whole-grain mustard to make a delicious condiment for the meat.
