Grilled Zucchini

We picked the zucchini from the zucchini plant that never 
stops giving.

Sauced and ready to go onto the grill  @ 325* direct.
On the Grill Grates! I like the grill grates for this cook since
 they block the direct heat and turns the grill grates into a amplified 
radiated heat.
Added more sauce and pulled @ 30 minutes

Served with leftover chicken teriyaki. Jackie's son Rich gave 
Jackie the ingredients for this wonderful sauce. We really 
enjoyed this meal. IT'S A KEEPER. 

Tempura Sauce
Soy Sauce
Oyster Sauce
Minced onion, dry
Minced garlic
Minced ginger
Sesame seeds
A little sherry

Thanks for lookin!

Grilled Chicken Teriyaki

When Jackie and I were deciding what to have for dinner
she said that we have frozen boneless and skinless chicken
thighs in the freezer. We made the grilled  teriyaki chicken two 
weeks ago and loved it, so here it is again. Eric C. Mitchell
the book author of Smoking Like a Pro says chicken and beef
teriyaki are my favorite appetizers whenever we eat out.
The quality and flavor, however are usually hit and miss.
Making your own will ensure that you always get the right
balance between sweet and savory and crisp and moist.
Homemade teriyaki sauce is far better than store-bought.
This recipe tastes fresher and brighter than from a bottle.
as an alternative, try using bone-in chicken thighs or beef
flap meat (sirloin tip).

The marinade, it's been in the fridge for 4 hrs.
On the Grill Grates in the BGE  @ 400* direct for a short grill

Pulled at 18 minutes looking good.

Served with cauliflower with cheese infused with bacon 
sauce. What didn't we devour! This recipe is going 
to the top of my chicken recipes

Thanks for lookin!

Grilled Tri-Tip with Citrus-Chile Butter #2

This recipe is adapted from Southern Living ULTIMATE 
book of BBQ The Complete Year-Round Guide to 
Grilling & Smoking By Christopher Prieto

Started with a untimed 2.6 lb Tri-Tip got it all trimmed 
ready for the next step as unusual as it is at least to me!
Baking Soda! Jackie read an article about using baking 
soda to tenderize meat, it said to rub it in and leave in the 
fridge for 5-7 hours.
I rinsed the Tri-Tip off real good added salt and pepper.
On the Grill Grates in the BGE @ 425* for a sear rest and eat.

This is just 20 minutes, it will be resting for another ten.

Well rested in the Citrus-Chile Butter for 15 minutes.

The answer is YES it does tenderize the meat well. The Citrus-chile 
butter was outstanding as well. The Kale Strawberry Parmesan 
cheese salad was wonderful as usual. I love this 
wonderful BBQ recipe book.

Thanks for lookin!
