Recipes Involving Barbecuing

Find a wide selection of great Barbecuing BBQ Recipes @ The #1 Recipe Site

Q: I am compiling a Barbecue Cookbook. Looking for BBQ recipes that are suitable for the “Average Person”.
I don’t want recipes that involve exceptionally expensive or difficult-to-find ingredients. I am looking for unique recipes that have been passed-down through familes, etc.

The idea is that a regular person can make one trip to the local supermarket, and pick up everything he/she needs to make a great grilled meal. I am trying to appeal to everybody, as much as possible.

Easy-to-prepare side dishes (and possibly desserts) will also be included; again, the idea is simplicity and economy.

All of these recipes, as well as advice on cooking technique, will be available on my Web Log, Barbecue For Real. In exchange, I get to try out new recipes.

Contributors will be credited for their recipes.

A: I have a great one~it has been in my family for 50 years~ created by Joe Martin:

Uncle Joe’s BBQ Sauce:

1 medium onion, grated or processed in food processor
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 8-oz cans of tomato sauce
1/2 c. vinegar
1/4 c. worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp Louisiana hot sauce
1 1/2 Tbsp powdered mustard
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup Heinz catsup
1/2 lemon

Saute onion and garlic in olive oil. Add other ingredients, squeeze in the lemon juice (Uncle Joe threw in the lemon rind~I don’t). Simmer about 20 minutes, stirred frequently. Makes about a quart of wonderful sauce~

Q: BBQ shrimp dinner recipes needed please?
My hubby will only eat one kind of fish ( shrimp )
We love to barbecue, its hot this weekend and I don’t want to cook. We have never had shrimp on the barbecue. Any tips you can give me?

Thank You
We know how to use the grill lol!

A: Here’s a rich BBQ SHRIMP recipe

“Lg. shrimp, deveined & shelled
Equal amt. of partially cooked bacon strips
Mozzarella cheese, sliced

Cut shrimp down back, stuff with tiny slice of Mozzarella. Wrap bacon around stuffed shrimp. Secure with toothpicks. Place on skewers (wooden bamboo skewers need to be soaked in water for at least 1 hour before putting shrimp on). Brush on favorite BBQ sauce and barbecue for approximately 3 to 5 minutes on each side until done, adding barbecue sauce when needed. Serve over rice or alone.”

Q: BBQ/Barbecued Fish?
For something different, I’d like to barbecue fish. Have been told that the best way is to purchase fresh fish (cleaned, de-boned, etc.), wrap it in foil and put on grill on low to medium. What seasoning are best, and do I add butter inside the foil? How long to cook and is low-med. correct? What fish is easiest? Unfortunately 2 of my family members will not eat salmon or tuna, but like almost any other type of fish…I’m thinking trout (?) (I live near a fish outlet where I can purchase fresh fish). Any suggestions and/or simple recipes would be appreciated! Thanks.
p.s. – I BBQ’d large pre-cooked shrimp in foil and was ok, not great – perhaps because it was pre-cooked?

A: Flounder filets covered with paprika garlic and butter
Wrapped in aluminum foil and cooked slowly til its done

A: who does grilling better than a Texan? No one :o )
Lone Star Barbecue Spareribs
You can vary the sauce for the spareribs according to your taste, of course, but you and yours will love it “by the book.” The recipe easily doubles if you are feeding more than 4 or 5 people and have a grill or pit to accommodate that much meat. Remember, you are not grilling directly over the coals, so you won’t be able to use the entire grill surface.
4 pounds beef or pork spareribs
olive oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 tablespoons butter
1 medium onion, chopped
5 garlic cloves, minced or put through a garlic press
2 large, ripe tomatoes, chopped
1 6-ounce can tomato paste
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 heaping tablespoon Dijon mustard
salt to taste
cayenne pepper to taste
1/2 cup red wine (not the cooking variety)
juice of 1 lemon
You’ll be grilling the ribs for about an hour and a half, saucing them during the last 15 minutes. This sauce contains brown sugar and other ingredients that will flame up, so indirect grilling is called for. Start your charcoal or wood or fire up your gas grill. Rub the slab of ribs all over with the olive oil, sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper, and rub it in. Cover and set aside.
Start your sauce: In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. When it begins to bubble, add the onion and garlic and sauté until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add all remaining ingredients, stir and turn heat to medium-low. Cook for 20 to 30 minutes until mixture is somewhat reduced and thickened. Taste the sauce and adjust the seasonings, if you think it necessary.

When your grill is ready, put the ribs, bone side down, in the center of the grill. Make sure that the drippings won’t drip directly onto the heat source. Cover the grill and open the vents enough to make sure there’s air flow. Grill the ribs for 1 hour, turning at 30 minutes and one hour.

If you need to build up your fire again, add more coals at this point. Be sure to keep the lid closed at all times unless you are tending the ribs or the coals.

About 15 minutes before they are due to be ready, give the ribs a good basting on both sides with the sauce. Bring the sauce back to a gentle boil for a few minutes. When the ribs are done to your liking, take them off the grill and serve immediately with the sauce on the side.
