    I have been super pleased with every recipe I've tried - pork baby back ribs, lots of chicken recipes, hobo packs (yum!). Outstanding.

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Latin-style grilled tips with mojo

    • aeader on May 27, 2017

      This was quick and easy to prepare, and the flavors were great. I used pork tenderloin for the tips and ground cumin instead of whole cumin seed (I don''t think I would use whole or crushed seeds as they would fall off during grilling). Skipped he pineapple and just used extra red onion. Would definitely make again.

  • Mustard seed-crusted pork tenderloin with cheesy grilled tomatoes and white beans

    • Stonewalt on February 16, 2010

      This can be done indoors with a grill pan for the pork, with tomatoes roasted at 350 (sprinkle cheese mixture over tomatoes after 30 minutes and turn off oven). I used country mustard instead of plain seed, and I liked the crust that formed that way. The combination of the pork, tomatoes and beans is fabulous. Paired it with hobo packs of sweet potato and apples (same cookbook). Yummy.

  • Simple garlic- and herb-crusted smoke-roasted flattened whole chicken

    • westminstr on July 14, 2014

      I've made this chicken twice and it is excellent. Next time though I will try just salt and pepper to see if the marvelous flavor is coming from the rub or perhaps its just the cooking method.

  • Hobo pack of plaintains and onions with raisins, garlic, and lime

    • Tommelise on September 20, 2011

      The flavours were lovely, but we are not good a grilling, so the hobo pack got burned at the bottom- however we will try again, and make this recipe work

  • Smoky corn and tomato salad with cilantro vinagrette

    • Tommelise on September 20, 2011

      A good summer recipe . We use a little very finely chopped red chili, since chipotle chiles in adobo sauce is not avaliable here.

  • Red onion-ginger jam

    • smtucker on August 02, 2013

      Served with a coriander-cumin rubbed bluefish. People who like sweet loved it. Those who don't found it a smidgen too sweet. Less sugar, more vinegar next time. Quick to make for a lot of flavor. Can be made earlier in the day.
