Grilling Galore…and a Mr. Bar-B-Q Giveaway…and Amazing Recipes for the Grill!

EmailPinterest0Facebook0Twitter1Google+0StumbleUpon0

This giveaway is now closed. But don’t miss the great grilling recipes at the end of the post!

I love grilling. And not just because grilled food is delicious. But because I usually hand over the grilling responsibilities to Nate. My kitchen stays cool and I get a man to cook for me. It’s heaven.

When Mr. Bar-B-Q contacted me about a giveaway and offered to send some fun grilling accessories, I jumped on the offer. Because Nate seriously does love grilling and I figured a few new tools might get him in front of the BBQ even more this summer.

Mr. Bar-B-Q sent us some some beautiful grilling tools, a pair of heavy-duty gloves (Nate is most excited about those!), and a pizza stone for the grill. We haven’t used the stone yet, but I am most excited about that one for sure. There have been a few times this summer when we’ve really wanted homemade pizza, but firing up the oven to 500 degrees in the summer heat is the last thing I want to do. Enter pizza stone on the grill – woo-hoo! I cannot wait to give it a try!

To inspire you to have some fun at the grill this summer, I have two “gifts” for you today. First, a giveaway from Mr. Bar-B-Q. Second, favorite grilling recipes from some of my favorite food bloggers. Do you think you can handle all this grilling love? I thought so…here we go!

Mr. Bar-B-Q wants to help you find your inner Mr. or Mrs. Bar-B-Q by giving away a Mr. Bar-B-Q Grill Stone Pizza Kit (which includes a 15″ round grill top pizza stone and a folding pizza shovel) and a Mr. Bar-B-Q 18-Piece Stainless-Steel Grill Tool Set. Imagine the fun you could have at your next barbecue! To enter the giveaway, please leave a “juicy” comment…you know, spill the beans on your favorite grilling recipe, memory, tips, sauces and more! Comments must be made by Midnight PT on Monday, August 1. One winner will be announced on August 2. I can’t wait to see your juicy comments!

BONUS: if you “like” Mr. Bar-B-Q on Facebook, please add a second comment to this post to get an additional entry in the giveaway!

In anticipation of today’s great giveaway, I emailed a handful of my dearest food blogging friends and asked them to share their favorite grilling recipes. Between the Mr. Bar-B-Q giveaway and these fabulous recipes, you should be feeling pretty darn inspired to have a lot of fun at the grill this summer!

Happy Grilling!

  1. This new Texan NEEDS a BBQ set. In fact, when we moved to Texas we left our old grill in California… but we now need these awesome tools to accompany our new Texas-sized grill.

    PLUS, it’s so hot here we grill all the time to avoid heating up the kitchen. You name it, we grill it! Fingers crossed!

    I think my favorite thing to grill is corn on the cob. When feeling decadent, I will sprinkle with salt and chili powder, wrap a slice of bacon around it and then cover in foil.

    Love this give-a-way! We’re BBQ-ing every weekend lately and covering everything (chicken, burgers, dogs) with a hot bbq sauce. Then I take my dog, bun it and put some sweet mustard on it. The combo of the hot/smoky bbq sauce and the sweet honey mustard is amazing.

    I like lemon or lime marinated chicken on the grill. I’ve been eager to try grilled pizza, but don’t have the right tools and haven’t done it yet.

    I love BBQ’d chicken! I just tried a Rachel Ray recipe, Honey Mustard BBQ Sauce, and it was delicious! Made some for my dad too!

    My #1 grilling tip is to always let the grill get HOT before you put your meat on! …and always lightly oil the grates.

    Kathleen

    Corn on the cobb. Best when grilled in the husk on the BBQ. So juicy and delicious.

    My favorite tip is to watch out so you don’t burn your bangs. We had a little flare up last summer and my bangs burned. Oops.

  23. 23
    Becca

    I’ve been wanting to try pizza on the grill too, but I haven’t gotten around to it yet. My favorite chicken marinade is so easy to make. 1/2 cup lemon juice, 2 tablespoons each olive oil and dried rosemary. Throw it all in a ziploc with about 4 chicken breasts, plus some lemon slices if you have a fresh one on hand, and marinate in the fridge overnight, or at least 8 hours.

  24. Sadly I don’t have any juicy grilling tips because I’ve never actually grilled! My husband is pretty good though and these tools would be much loved by him!

    One of my favorite memories of grilling comes from my childhood. Dad always did (and still does) the grilling in that house; however, Mom tried to cook something (burgers maybe? …it’s been a while) for dinner as Dad was working late that evening. Let’s just say that even the dogs wouldn’t get near it when she finished with it!

    Janna

    I looooove the Greek Kabobs my mom makes. Marinate pre-chopped bell peppers, onions, grape tomatoes, and mushrooms, as well as chicken pieces, separate from the veggies, in Greek dressing (I like to make my own) over night. Start the veggies 5 minutes before the chicken, or 20 minutes if you use a grilling basket. DELICIOUS, and it makes for great leftovers!

    The best bar-b-que is shoyu chicken & teriyaki beef. In Hawaii you can grill pretty much year round & we spent many a Thanksgiving Day bar-b-quing shoyu chicken on the beach. Soak chicken thighs in a mixture of Aloha soy sauce, peeled fresh ginger slices, garlic cloves and a little sesame oil. Eat em while it’s hot and fresh off the grill! Serve with hot rice. So ono!

    I love grilled food. And like you, my favorite part about it is that my husband does the cooking. And it’s delicious.

    I don’t think this is a really juicy comment, but I am just learning how to grill this summer. Hubby has started working really late hours and I wanted the ability to grill up some chicken to use all week in recipes – or some burgers for easy leftover lunches – or some brats for yummy bbq dinner. Anyway, the first time, my chicken actually turned out great. The kids were not thrilled because I trimmed all the fat first – and daddy usually cuts off those little bits to share with them as ‘taste testers’. Aside from that, good. But, I decided to grill burgers too and they turned out like charcoal hockey pucks. I don’t like any pink in my burger and these fit the bill – cooked through and through! No ‘juicy’ about it. :) But, my second attempt was improved – and I’ve been able to successfully make brats, burgers, hot dogs and chicken thus far. Might try some steak soon! :)

    My favorite grill item is a kabob. It’s somewhat unique where we live and always easy to throw together! I buy large chunked stew meat and an assortment of vegies. Everyone can build their faves. Serve with a variety of sauces, dips, and dressings for dipping fun. For dessert- fruit and cake kabobs drizzled with chocolate and caramel.

    Jessica Meidinger

    My bro just made bacon-wrapped green bean bundles – par-cook (steam or boil) the beans, then wrap 6-8 beans in one strip of uncooked bacon (wrap tightly) and grill. Delish.
    I’m a grilling novice, but would like to go pro.

  44. Favorite thing to grill – pizza. Never used a stone, would love to try.
    Most interesting thing we’ve grilled – hot dog shaped hamburgers. Yes, you read that right. Hamburgers shaped into hot dogs. The concoction came about once when we had a surplus of hot dog buns and no hot dogs. Once you got past the weird shape, they were great and tasted just like regular hamburger.

    i have dreams about my future bbq with gas/smoker/charcoal options because i NEED all of them. but for now i am happy with my charcoal bbq’d tri-tip!

    Sarah Darby

    My dad is the best barbequer I know. Everything comes off juicy as can be and never burnt. Everything that comes off of my grill is dry and charred. Why is that? Maybe some new tools will get me some more skills;) Plus I have been DYING for a pizza stone. I love homemade pizza.

    Favorite thing to grill- as much as I love grilled vegies… nothing beats a still pink steak! We love to do sliced flank steak at our house- not only is it cheaper- when sliced right, it always comes our nice and tender!

    I love chicken and corn on the cob on the grill. I think the corn cooks so much better and the chicken has so much better flavor then the oven chicken I normally make.

    I “like” Mr. Bar-B-Q!!!

  51. My boyfriend loves to grill — I just have to hand him some raw meat/fish/veggies/whatever and off he goes. It’s nice not having to be the one to cook all the time!

    Mmm, BBQ here is a whole different tube of wasabi, thank goodness my husband prefers to cook American style. He’d love something like this. Our favorite thing to eat is chicken that’s been marinated in my grandfather’s BBQ sauce. The secret is the whole head of garlic in it. I make a huge batch , and freeze a couple of bags of breasts. The marinate as they freeze, and as they thaw. Mmmm, I think we’ll have BBQ this weekend.

    Lately it is grilled zucchini, as the garden is cranking it out faster than we can eat it.

    I’m convinced that buying a grill saved my marriage. Before we had it, my husband was not interested in helping make meals. Now he can’t wait to go out and play with fire. ha! He would love these tools!

    Years ago, when my husband and I were first dating, we bought a little grill fueled by a propane tank! I am amazed at the things we were able to cook on that thing!

    I love grilled corn on the cob and grilled pineapple. They’re delicious! It’d be so fun to try making a Hawaiian pizza on our grill with this fun giveaway!

  57. 57
    Carrie Z

    My favorite thing to grill is a big bunch of chopped veggies (peppers, mushrooms, onions, squash) on skewers then toss them in a bowl with italian dressing, yum!

  58. I love grilled food but don’t have a grill. :) I was at a friend’s last night and they grilled burgers and they were delicious.

    My attempts at making pizza on the grill have *not* turned out well, so any help is welcome! I really want to learn how to make a great grilled pizza! We love just about everything on the grill, but especially love hamburgers, pork chops, zucchini and asparagus. Kebabs are also a huge hit around here. Thanks for the chance to win!

    Want those tools…oh yes I do.

    Want a delicious recipe for potatoes on the grill?? Delicious, but not necessarily calorie friendly.

    Somewhat thinly slice about 5-8 potatoes and put them on a Pam sprayed piece of heavy duty foil (foil large enough to make a cooking packet). Slice or dice a small onion and throw on the potatoes. Sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper. Pull the sides up a bit on the foil and pour about a half cup of broth of some sort (I use vegetable broth)over the potatoes and onions. Sprinkle with Worcestershire Sauce. Spread grated cheddar cheese over the top (to taste, but we usually use about 2/3 cup), dot with three or four tablespoons of butter then seal up the foil packet and cook on the grill for about 20 minutes. Move to low or indirect heat and cook for another 10 – 15 minutes. Yummy, yummy potatoes.

    My tip would be to assign one person the “man” the grill. I tend to overcook anything I grill since I’m usually running up and down the deck stairs from the grill to the kitchen trying to finish other prep.

    My tip is for beginners. Start grilling with a cut of meat that is hard to mess up, like rack of lamb. Here is one of my fav recipe:

    I love pizza on the grill, too–only I don’t have a stone! Here’s one of my favorites: Grilled Flatbread with Ricotta Cheese, Fresh Tomatoes, Basil and Roasted Garlic Oil (adapted from foodnetwork)

    It is so good, only the flatbread takes a while to rise.

    I’ve never made pizza on the grill but would love to try.

    I like corn on the cob topped with salted butter and grilled asparagus wrapped in bacon or parma ham. We also do jerk marinaded chicken with grilled pineapple salsa as well as peach kebabs with honey and mascarpone. Yummy!

  75. 75
    Kristy w

    Just don’t turn that meat too often, and definitely don’t smash the top of those burgers with your spatula! :)

  76. Jane,
    Thank you for offering a giveaway! I am a full-time employee in Corporate America and a mom of four who runs a food planning website/blog in my “free” time (www.DiningDivaDinners.com) The best way to minimize my cooking time is to plan to grill because my husband won’t let anyone else touch his grill! :) We wore out our grill earlier this year (and had to replace it) with all the grilling experiments, so new tools to go with the new grill would be a blessing. Our current favorite to grill: pork chops with this rub. It keeps the meat super JUICY!

    Dining Diva’s Rub
    2 tsp dried basil
    1 tsp dried thyme
    2tsp dried rosemary
    2 tsp dried oregano
    1 T crushed fennel seeds
    1 tsp ground coriander
    2 tsp garlic powder
    2T salt
    2 tsp ground black pepper
    Mix all ingredients together. Rub on meat of choice 8-24 hours before you plan to eat.

    How to pick just one grilling recipe….I have so, so many. We live in Seattle and are lucky enough to have a large covered deck so we use our grill year round at least 3 to 4 nights a week.

    My newest fav is to use a grilling basket and grill up some fresh vegetables. Just cut the vegetables in to large bite size pieces Tossed in a little olive oil, fresh lemon juice, lemon pepper, lemon zest and sprinkled with a little kosher salt and red pepper flakes then grill for 10 or so minutes.

    I use zucchini, squash, peppers, onions, grape tomatos, carrots, broccoli, snap peas or green beans…the possibilities are endless.

  79. 79
    Karen

    Honestly, we grill it all, and very infrequently use a recipe. I don’t want to turn on the oven here! It’s just too hot. One of our favorite recipes was grilled eggplant slices sandwiched around soft cheese and herbs.

  80. 80
    Dawn

    A couple more easy grilling ideas…because I “liked” Mr. Bar-B-Q

    Bacon Wrapped Asaragus
    Wrap a half a slice of good bacon around 3 or 4 spears (depending on the thickness) and grill for 7ish minutes. I use a sheet of foil under the asparagus to keep if from burning.

    Ribs
    This recipe calls for using the oven for the majority of the cooking time, but the grilling is what makes them perfect. Rub both sides of the ribs (I use baby backs)with a dry rub of equal parts garlic salt or powder, chili powder, paprika, cayanne. I add just a little sugar to the rub. Bake at 350 for 2 plus hours. Remove from oven, brush on a good barbacue sauce and grill for about 5 minutes. The oven allows them to get nice moist and the grilling adds just enough crispness. Mmm, they are so good.

  81. 81
    Stephanie P.

    I think it’s hard to beat simple eats like steak, shrimp, and all kinds of veggies on the grill. Love it when there’s a char on the outside and a tender center!

  82. 82
    Sarah H.

    My favorite thing to grill is peaches! Normally I hate ‘healthy desserts’ (I mean, it’s dessert, it’s not supposed to be healthy!) I cut the peaches in half, remove the pit, grill for a couple of minutes on each side, and then top with honey. It’s sooo good–almost like eating the filling out of a peach pie. Even better topped with vanilla ice cream!

  83. 83

    Grilled pineapple is divine! So easy and so good. Grilling pizza is on my list of things I want to try, so this set would help so much.

    One of my new favorite appetizers to make on the grill is Cauliflower…even better, its super simple and super tasty.

    Cut up the cauliflower into medium size pieces.
    Mix olive oil and parmesan cheese until you have a mixture that is the consistency of a runny paste (sounds tasty I know)
    Put the cauliflower and oil/parm mixture into a bag, seal and shake. Throw on a grill pan (not needed if you have small slats on your grates) and grill for 5-10 min until crispy. Be careful though – the crisping part happens fast and its easy to burn if you’re not watching.

    Pull off the grill and serve with ranch dressing for dipping.

    My favorite thing to grill is chicken breasts, but that’s just because of a confidence thing– I need a bit more practice with everything else. We’re trying all kinds of things, just to keep the heat outside and not in the kitchen this summer.

    Marintated chicken for 24 hours in Good Season salad dressing and the aroma that filled the air was mouth watering!

    I love slicing pineapple and covering it with a honey and lime zest mixture and throwing it on the grill. The honey caramelizes and the pineapple is so juicy.

  99. Italian dressing on the meat the night before. It’s simple and cheap, but it always makes for the most juicy and succulent meat.

    I’m new to BBQing so I don’t have too many tips, but one thing I’ve found that is very effective is to use a oil soaked paper towel to grease the grates with after they’re hot, but before I start grilling. No sticking yet!

  101. 101
    Jessica

    I love nothing more than grilling a juicy rib-eye on the grill. The only thing it needs it a little salt, pepper, & a flame touch to medium perfection.

    Living in Texas, there is nothing that the neighbors love more as well!

    These tools look awesome!

    Would love some new grilling tools! My mother gave us a pizza stone for the holidays but never sent it out .. so now she’s returning it and we still haven’t tried grilled pizza yet! Recently we’ve been making grilled fajitas and they are so great – with a vegetable rack the onions and peppers are nicely cooked to perfection.

    One of my favorite things to BBQ lately, is Chicken Veggie Kabobs, marinate the chicken first in a plain yogurt, lemon juice, s&p, cilantro, chopped green onions for 30 minutes or overnight. Soooo seriously good! Yum! Thread the chicken chunks alternating with cherry tomatoes and chunks of green squash, sprinkle with more s&p.

    I like to make scalloped potatoes on the grill. I make a foil packet (triple layer the bottom) and smear butter on the foil. You can also use PAM. Then peel about 3 lbs of potatoes and slice very thin. Dot the potatoes with butter. Salt and pepper to taste. Then I add a layer of either Velveeta cheese or American cheese (whatever you have on hand), then I spread a layer of Cream of Mushroom soup over the cheese. Add a layer of foil to the top and crimp the edges of the top layer to the bottom layer. We usually put these on about 15 minutes before the meat and continue cooking while the meat cooks. If you need room you can move it to the top shelf, which is wear the pizza server would come in real handy! :) Anyway, they are almost failproof and keeps the heat out of the kitchen and is easy for cleanup. Good luck to everyone on the grilling giveaway.

    One of my favorite things about summer are the many cook outs we’re invited to! I love the chill atmosphere of hanging out with friends in the backyard, sipping on sweet tea, playing corn hole, and smelling the delicious food cooking on the grill. Grilled pizza would be a first for me, but it sounds SO good (any pizza is a-ok in my book)!

    This summer we discovered how awesome brined pork loin can be on the grill. Add a little brown sugar/honey/chili powder glaze and YUM-A-LICIOUS.

    I love to grill zucchini by brushing on olive oil and sprinkling on sea salt. Hoping to win the giveaway for my brother who loves to grill and is turning 40 soon!

    My favorite recent grilling recipe is from Food Network Magazine. You coat some sliced squash and onions in olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt and fresh pepper. Cook these in a grill pan and then squeeze in the juice of a lemon and top with parmesan cheese savings. Yum!

    I’d love to have the pizza tools!

    My favorite grilling memory is my engagement seafood cookout to celebrate my 4th of July proposal last year to my now-wife Angela!

    One of my favorites is to grill baked potatoes with onions and parm cheese! Cut about 3 slits in potato (depending on size) fill the slits with parmesan cheese and slice vidalia onion. Wrap up in tin foil and grill away! So easy and SO delicious!

    Hello! My favorite grilled item is very simple. I love grilled corn. I had never had it on the BBQ until my husband fixed it for me. We love to BBQ. It’s such a special time for us and I love watching my husband and my junior grillers (4) outside while I’m seasoning and fixing sides. It’s also a plus that I don’t have to clean up much or cook that day. Yay for grilling!!!

    Kabobs on the grill are the favorite in this household!

    The best tip I can give is to always have a cup of water or a beer handy near the grill. You never know when you’re going to have a flare-up….mostly bc the hubs isn’t paying attention. I’ve witnessed our grill on fire way too many times beacuse the game was on.

    We just got our first house and our grill that we have had for a long time is finally up and ready for some love! Now all we need are some tools to use with it! This would be perfect!

    Grilled apricots! Cut ‘em in half, grill the cut sides, and turn often so they carmelize evenly. Turn the halves over and melt some bleu cheese in the pit hole. Take them off, and drizzle with honey.
