    My family loves shishkabobs....either chicken or beef. We usually marinate the meat first, chicken in Italian dressing, beef in Adolfs Marinade in Minutes. We use whole mushrooms, cherry tomatos and green peppers, put all on skewers and throw on the grill. They are and FUN! Let everyone build their own! You can also use zucchini, summer squash...the only limits are your imagination!

    We just did this last night, & it was so good. We took some of those little tiny red potatoes, some chopped up onions, red peppers, yellow squash & a little olive oil and garlic powder, wrapped them up in tin foil, & grilled them for a while. It was so yummy! You could use any combination of veggies. They all taste so good grilled.

    I grill a lot! Even if its snowing outside. I have a gas Weber that I love. One of my favorites on the grill is London Broil. I marinate it overnight, oil, soy sauce, garlic, whitewine, onion, then sear it on both sides for 4-5 minutes, on the gas weber, turn your burners to MOM , medium, off, medium, cook for 15 more minutes, comes out perfect!!

    I also do Kohlbassi on the grill, fish, wings, ribs, steaks, chicken. I just got a rotissiere also.

    I luv doing veggies on the grill, last night I cut up Portabellos, zucchini, onions, peppers, and sliced potatoes in Italian dressing, They loved it!

    I think we need to do a cook out. There are some yummy recipes here. :thumbsup2

    We grill a lot too. My newest favorite dish, wrap up chicken breast with whatever vegetables julianned in tin foil. Add a mixture of blue cheese mustard from Stonewall Kitchen and sour cream.

    Easy to cook, yummy to eat, easy to clean up. Doesn't get better than that.:)

    Our favorite :thumbsup2 steak marinade is the Flank Steak from Boma. ( ) I just noticed it's missing what little instruction the chefs sent: "Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Add flank steak and marinate for 24 hours." [NOTES: This is a thick marinade - almost paste-like. The amounts given are enough to do a 1.5 lb steak. In a pinch, I've marinated for 8 hours & it's still really good - just so much better if you leave it for the full 24 hrs. ;)

    We do potatoes in foil also. I spay the foil with EVOO and then put in sliced of onion, red bell pepper & potatoes with the skin still on. I usually only add half the potatoes, sprinkle with spices & then add the rest of the potatoes. I do spray the top potatoes to keep them from sticking. Spices - any or all of these: lemon pepper, paprika, garlic powder/salt, chili powder, curry powder, coriander...

    We also have found we really like corn on the cob grilled. We've tried a variety of ways, but prefer to just husk it & put it on the grill. DH does it so I'm not sure how long on each side - but I think it's 2 or 3 minutes...not long enough to turn black, but will have some color. :confused3 I don't bother with butter when it's grilled - just sprinkle with lime juice. Yum! :teeth:

    Other than that we like pork roll (like Taylor's), kielbasa and lots & lots of chicken! LOL A couple favorites for chicken:

    [NOTE: Instructions for all marinades...Put everything in a gallon-sized zip-lock bag before freezing. Then it will marinate the chicken as it defrosts overnight in the frig.]
