Interesting BBQ Recipes

Summer is a time for family, friends and neighbors to get together and break bread. And when the weather is so giving, it only makes sense that meals are held outside as often as possible. BBQs flush with food, music, fresh air and conversation strengthens ties, solutes the sun and offer healthy ways to prepare the foods we are lucky enough to find so bountiful during the season’s sun-shining months. So grab your neighbors, and put together a delicious homemade menu for the BBQ.

Since we’re all the creative type here, what with our imaginations to repurpuse objects, find the beauty in the disregarded and craft something out of nothing, we might as well channel these energies to man’s most definitive discovery: fire. Burgers, dogs, sausages, they’re all great, but what can we do that is surprising, unusual, or downright weird? Here’s a list to get you started.

Clams are so delicious in the summer, plus they’re easy, quick and relatively inexpensive. And cooking them on the grill is fun! The cooking process is so quick, as is the eating, that you’ll be firing them up and popping them in your mouth as you go. A perfect snack to keep the fam gathered at the hearth.

Scrub and soak your littleneck clams but keep them refrigerated until you’re ready to use them. Place the clams directly on the grill and cover for 2 minutes. They’re done when they’ve popped open – if the never open, throw them out, there’s always one or two in a bunch.Whole marinated and grilled octopus. Cut apart tentacles if that makes it easier to handle. Remove the clams as they’re ready, and continue to add more to the grill as there’s room.

When removing the clams, be mindful not to spill out any of their natural delicious juices. Set them in a large, shallow bowl with any of the following combinations:

  • Mashed garlic, melted butter, salt, lemon, finely chopped parsley, and a pinch of cayenne.
  • Chopped and cooked bacon, lemon and red pepper flakes, mixed with a bit of the bacon fat, and some olive oil as necessary.
  • Saute finely chopped garlic and onion in olive oil, add half a cup of beer, cook on high for 4 minutes.
