The unofficial kickoff of the summer season is only a week away (Memorial Day Weekend). So break out the grill and try one (or more) of these nine time-tested recipes.
Your guests won’t forget these simple, extra touches.
And here’s some music to grill by, written and performed by my friend Kenny Hogan: Watch the Video of “Backyard Barbecue“.
1.) The Perfect Burger: Think you know how to cook a hamburger? Think again.
2.) Grilled Braciole Fit for a Saint: A favorite at the St. Rocco Feast in Malden, Mass.
3.) Athens Grilled Chicken: A twist on the above braciole recipe.
4.) Italian Fried Chicken: A no-fry way to get that deep fried taste.
5.) Neely’s Barbecue Chicken: A Memphis delight!
6.) Grilled Pork Chops with Peppers and Capers: Batali’s dish with a hundred flavors.
Appetizers and/or Side Dishes
7.) Italian Corn on the Cob: This is not your grandmother’s corn.
