Newest grilling recipes from


It may be August (already, where does the time go...) but we've still got plenty of time left in summer to enjoy great BBQ & grilling.

We've got 3 new recipes that I'm really excited about.

The first one is an inspiration and a copycat dish from the Brazilian BBQ restaurants called Picanha (pee-Con-ya) and might be the most flavorful BBQ beef you may ever taste.

Next up is an amazing Chicken Souvlaki recipe that's almost so easy its embarrassing. The marinade is what really gives this dish it's authentic Mediterranean flavor and using chicken thighs keeps it very tender and juicy. You'll love these served on warm, soft tortilla shells.

And finally is the newest recipe, Smoky Texas Roadhouse Chili. Tender chunks of grilled Sirloin Steak and Hot Sausage really give this chili lots of body and the twist with BBQ sauce gives it a nice hickory smoky flavor. Set your old chili recipe aside just once and give this one a try.

Brazilian Picanha Beef

If you've never been to one of the Brazilian BBQ's (called Churriscaria) that are springing up all over North America and Europe then do yourself a favor and go.

You'll experience the most flavorful BBQ meat you've ever tasted and it's served to you, sliced from skewers by waiters that wander through the restaurant.

In the meantime, here is a copycat recipe from one of those restaurants, tender delicious beef that you cook on skewers and serve just like the restuarants, thin slices on your guests plates.

This is intended for the more slower paced, laid back informal gatherings.

Mediterranean Chicken Souvlaki

I just can't get enough of this recipe. Tender boneless skinless chicken thighs are soaked overnight in a fantastic greek marinade that really packs the flavors in.

The chicken thighs and green pepper are skewered and grilled (quickly) and then served in a warm tortilla (or pita) with fresh tomatoes, red onion and cucumber.

Drizzle the creamy garlic cucumber sauce over top, that recipe's also included.

This is a great weeknight meal since it takes no time at all.

Texas Roadhouse Chili

If you're like me (or most people) and you like chili there's a good chance you've got a recipe that you go to everytime.

Nothing wrong with that but every now and then it's nice to try something just a little bit different and change things up a bit.

Here's your chance.

This Texas Roadhouse Chili uses large chunks of grilled Sirloin Steak and Hot Sausage to give it lots of body.

Add fresh tomatoes (now's the season!), veggies, beans and a little corn and you've got a great start on a new favorite chili.

The real difference between this and all the other chili recipes (and what gives this chili a nice hickory smoke flavor) is the addition of smoky BBQ sauce.

I think you'll really like this one.

Until next time, enjoy these new recipes with this great late summer weather and feel free to share this newsletter with your friends.
