When traveling, one of the more popular goals people have is to experience the cuisine of wherever it is their travels have taken them. Whether traveling domestically or internationally, travelers often want to experience those foods cherished by other cultures or communities.
Grillmasters know that grilling for friends and family is about more than just burgers and hot dogs. For those who want to add some more flavorful fare to their backyard barbecues, the following recipe for "Smoke-Roasted Bell Peppers Stuffed With Green Garden Vegetables" from Andrew Schloss and David Joachim's "Mastering the Grill" is sure to please guests and grillmasters alike.
Fish can be harder to grill than foods more commonly associated with grilling. Oftentimes, it takes time to find fish that can withstand a charcoal grill.
Diners are a popular place to gather with friends and family for a hearty and often inexpensive meal. Many diners boast specialty items, but nearly every diner has hamburgers on its menu, and diner burgers are often made to perfection. But hamburger enthusiasts don't need to head out to a local diner when craving a diner-style burger. Thanks to the following recipe for a "Hamburger With All the Fixins" from Jennifer Joyce's "Diner" (Ryland, Peters & Small), you can now enjoy a diner-style hamburger from the comforts of your own dinner table.
No backyard barbecue is complete without burgers. But just because burgers are a staple of such gatherings does not mean grillmasters cannot experiment with their burger recipes. Stuffed burgers are growing in popularity at restaurants across the country, but such delectable dishes can be enjoyed right in the comforts of your own backyard. Those who want to give burgers some new life at their next barbecue can use the following recipe for "Herb Cheese-Stuffed Garlic Burgers" from Andrew Schloss and David Joachim's "Mastering the Grill" (Chronicle Books).
Slow cooking has grown in popularity in recent years, and perhaps no dish is more synonymous with slow cooking than ribs. While it helps to be a professional or seasoned amateur when preparing ribs, you don't need to be a proficient pork preparer to enjoy the following recipe for "Coriander Spare Ribs With Cilantro Butter" from Andrew Schloss' "Cooking Slow" (Chronicle Books).
Hamburgers are a beloved food that are perhaps most popular during summer, when grillmasters fire up their grills to feed guests at backyard barbecues. Though few might describe hamburgers as "versatile," hamburgers are in fact just that. Chefs willing to stretch their burger boundaries can experiment with a host of ingredients to produce burgers that will be the talk of barbecue season.
Grillmasters are always looking to push the envelope and expand their grilling horizons. While standard fare like hot dogs and hamburgers will always find its way onto a backyard barbecue's menu, some grillmasters prefer to try new things and surprise their friends and family members along the way.
Pork roast is a favorite dish at dinner tables across the country. Just because pork roast is beloved doesn't mean home chefs can't experiment with different preparations. For those who want to give their pork roast a more smoky flavor, consider the following recipe for "Pork Loin Roast With Hot Pepper Jelly Glaze" from Karen Putman and Judith Fertig's "Championship BBQ Secrets for Real Smoked Food" (Robert Rose).
Backyard barbecues typically leave all the preparation to the family grillmaster. But the menu at such a soiree need not be exclusive to grilled foods. Hosts who want to give their guests something a little different can pass around a hearty helping of "Beer-Batter Onion Rings" courtesy of Neal Corman's "Virgil's Barbecue Road Trip Cookbook" (St. Martin's Press).
