How to Grill Pork Chops

Even more than steaks, I love to cook pork chops out on the grill. Since pork is a fairly mild flavored meat, picking up the charred flavors of the grill, gives the chops another layer of complexity. As well as crispy, rendered out little bits of fat that just taste oh-so-good. However, pork is...

How to Grill Chicken Legs

Ah the Mighty Drumstick. If you’re a fan of meat on the bone, then you’ve gotta be a fan of the chicken leg. They have a ton of flavor, are tender and juicy and just look really cool! They are also perfect for slow cooking on the grill over the open flame. Because of the bone itself, chicken legs...

How to Grill Chicken Thighs

Chicken thighs are perhaps, the most under-appreciated cut of the whole bird. Understandably, chicken breasts are the goto for the majority of people, but they are actually much harder to cook well. Thighs have more natural flavor to them, and are more “forgiving” for the home cook. They are less...

How Long do you Cook Filet Mignon

Perhaps the most common steak question I get is “How long should I cook Filet Mignon?” The short, but likely inaccurate answer, is “about 10-12 minutes”. However, the real answer, is a bit more complicated. The question is not a simple one…nor does it have a simple answer. In reality, how long you...

How to Grill a Perfect Filet Mignon

Filet Mignon is often considered the greatest steak cut of them all. It’s unmatched in tenderness. Has a somewhat mild flavor, compared to other cuts, and when cooked right, it nearly guaranteed to please. I’ll frequently cook my filet in the oven, but once it gets warm enough, it’s time to bring...

How to Grill New York Steaks

New York Steaks are sometimes called New York Strip Steak, Kansas City Strip Steaks…or just the abbreviated Strip Steaks. It’s is one of the most common cuts in restaurants, from the most expensive Steakhouse to the restaurant chain down the street from you. For good reason. New York Steaks have a...

How to Grill Chicken Breasts

Grilling season for me, starts when the outside thermometer reads about 40 degrees. And chicken is often the most frequent grilling choice. Not only does the grill give chicken breasts a great flavor (and very cool grill marks if you follow my technique), but the it makes kitchen clean up so much...

How to Grill Steaks

I realize the subject of grilling steaks is a big topic. With the numerous cuts of beef available plus different desired levels of cooking, instructions could span several pages. But for our purposes, I will focus on grilling two popular cuts: filet mignon and New York, with a medium-rare result as...

5 Rules for a Perfect Grilled Steak

Growing up, the only way I knew how to cook steak was on the grill. And I gotta admit that bringing flame to meat was, and still is, a satisfyingly primal expression of the culinary arts. However, over the years, I've found that great steaks can indeed be cooked on the grill, and so each time it's...

How to Grill a Steak

While I love to cook steaks indoors, in a cast iron pan, getting out over the open flames, on a grill satisfies a primal need to bring fire and meat together. It also, joyfully, imparts an awesome flavor to a great steak. But alas, how to grill a perfect steak still eludes many folks, and I've seen...

Eight Tips to Cook the Perfect Burger

OK…before I catch too much grief about how wrong I am in my description of The Perfect Burger, allow me a few disclaimers. I love grilling burgers. If given the choice, I’d grill a burger over frying it. H owever , a poorly made and cooked burger, even over a grill is still going to be a crap...

How to Cook Asparagus

One of my favorite vegetables is Asparagus. In the Spring time, when it’s fresh, and local, I can’t get enough of it, and I cook it in some way, shape, or form at least twice a week. Not only is the taste great, but it goes well with all kinds of dishes; from the heaviest red meat, to the most...
