Halve mini peppers lengthwise, removing seeds and ribs. Place on tray cut side up. In a bowl, place 6oz. softened cream cheese. Add 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese. Finely chop some jarred banana peppers and add these to the bowl. Stir to combine - mixture will be a little stiff. Pour 1 tbsp. juice from jarred peppers, stir again. Grill for 6-8 minutes until cheese is melting and the bottom of the peppers have grill marks. While the peppers are grilling, chop some fresh cilantro.

Finely chop a small yellow onion and put it in an oven safe dish with 3 tbsp. of butter. Place caps and oven safe dish with butter and onion on the grill for 4-5 minutes. Set a timer for 2 minutes, butter is flammable. Remove onion and butter mixture when butter is melted. Finely chop the stems and place in a medium bowl. Zest in some lemon peel and add 1/3 cup Italian breadcrumbs. Snip in 1 tbsp. fresh tarragon. Open and drain a 5oz. can of crab meat. Stir to combine. Fill mushroom caps.

Melt butter on grill over indirect heat for 3-5 minutes. Set a timer for 3 minutes - if butter is melted, remove from heat. Add 1/2 cup white wine and return to grill for 3-5 minutes. Once again set the timer. While butter is melting, finely chop the parsley. Place 16-20 shrimp in medium bowl. Sprinkle parsley over the shrimp and then pour over butter mixture.

Pizza on the Genesis Gas Grill
Classic Margherita Pizza
  • 16 oz. bread dough or pizza dough
  • 8 oz. mozzarella
  • Pint cherry tomatoes
  • Fresh basil
  • Olive oil
  • Fresh garlic
  • Fresh oregano
  • Salt & Pepper

Remove dough from refrigerator and set in a bowl for an hour or two prior to making pizza.

Drizzle surface of the dough with olive oil and set the bowl in a warm spot. Allow dough to rest. Preheat the grill and clean the surface of the cooking grates. Begin prepping the toppings for the pizza. Slice the tomatoes and de-stem the oregano until you have about 1 tsp. of leaves. Grate 1 clove of garlic into a small bowl and add some olive oil.

On a flat surface such as a large cutting board or sheet tray press out the bread dough into a rectangle or into individual rounds using plenty of olive oil. This will take a few minutes as the dough will want to pull back. Once the dough is the size you desire, carry it to the grill. Carefully place the dough onto the grill, brush the top surface with a little additional olive oil and then close the lid. The temperature of the grill should be about 400°. You now have approximately 5 minutes to finish the prep of the toppings. Set the timer, grate the mozzarella, and pluck the basil leaves off the basil plant. You can roll a few leaves up and make ribbons of basil or just use the leaves whole.

Return to the grill with all the toppings and lift the lid. Using long handled tongs or a long handled spatula, flip the dough. Brush on some of the garlic olive oil. Quickly place the sliced tomatoes and basil on the grilled surface. Sprinkle with the grated mozzarella and the oregano leaves. Close the grill and set the timer for 5 minuies. Check the pizza when the timer rings. With the tongs or spatula, check the bottom of the pizza to ensure the crust is grilling nicely. The pizza could take 3-5 more minutes. Move the pizza to the cutting board, cool briefly, then cut and serve.

Grilled White Pizza with fig, prosciutto, and cheese
  • 16 oz. bread or pizza dough
  • 1 package of figs (fresh or dried)
  • 1 package of prosciutto
  • 4 oz. goat cheese
  • Olive oil
  • 1/4 cup pistachios (roughly chopped)
  • 4 oz. ricotta cheese

Remove dough from refrigerator and set in a bowl for an hour or two prior to making pizza.

Drizzle surface of the dough with olive oil and set the bowl in a warm spot. Allow dough to rest. Preheat the grill and clean the surface of the cooking grates. Begin prepping the toppings for the pizza. Slice fresh figs in quarters (dried figs in half). Chop the pistachios and return to a bowl. Grill should be at 400°.

Prepare dough on a cutting board or sheet tray. Press dough using plenty of olive oil into desired shape and size. Carry to grill and place dough on the cooking surface. Lightly brush with olive oil and close the lid. Set timer for 4-5 minutes.

When timer rings, return to the grill with toppings. Open the grill and flip the dough. Quickly spread the ricotta over the grilled dough followed by figs, prosciutto, and goat cheese. Drizzle a little olive oil, close the lid, and set your timer for 5 minutes. When timer sounds, check the bottom of the pizza crust to ensure it is grilling nicely. Pizza could need another 3-5 minutes. When ready, remove pizza from grill with long handled tongs and/or spatula and place on cutting board. Sprinkle the pizza with chopped pistachios, cool briefly, then cut and serve. This pairs with a chilled Prosecco, Italy's answer to champagne.


Vegetables on the Weber Charcoal Grill
Garlic and Oregano Beer Can Chicken
  • 4 small garlic cloves
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 a fresh lime
  • 1 whole chicken 3-4 pounds
  • 6 oz. beer

Combine grated garlic, red pepper flakes, salt, lime juice, and olive oil in a bowl. Coat the rinsed whole chicken and set in refrigerator to marinate up to 4 hours. Remove from fridge 1 hour before grilling.

Using the Weber® chicken roasting pan, fill the well with half a beer (6 oz.). Place cover over the well. Position chicken over well, place lid in opening at the top of the chicken. Grill over medium, indirect heat with the lid closed as continuously as possible. The chicken should roast 1-11/2 hours until internal temperature reaches 180° in the thickest part of the thigh, not touching the bone. To maintain proper cooking temperature you may need to add 5-6 charcoal briquettes to your pile of charcoal every 30 minutes. When chicken is done, carefully remove from the grill. The liquid is extremely hot! Allow chicken to rest. Lift chicken from roasting pan and carve.

Grilled Cauliflower
  • Head of Cauliflower
  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt and Ground pepper

Cut head of cauliflower into planks. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Place directly on grill grates or on sheet of foil for ease of removal. Grill until desired doneness approximately 12-15 mins.

Cast iron Skillet Cornbread
  • 2 ears of corn
  • 2 cups yellow cornmeal
  • 11/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 roasted red pepper
  • 1 jalapeno optional
  • 1/2 cup butter

Grill corn over indirect, medium heat to mark kernels. Remove from grill when done and cool. Cut kernels from cob and place in a small bowl. When you remove the corn from the grill, place a 10" cast-iron skillet containing 1 stick of butter onto the grill surface so butter melts.

In a large bowl combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda, and salt. Mix well, breaking up lumps. In another bowl, whisk the eggs with milk. To this add the peppers and corn kernels, and then combine in the large bowl with the dry ingredients. Retrieve the cast iron skillet from the grill. Pour melted butter over the cornbread mixture and blend together. Immediately pour cornbread back into skillet. Cook corn bread 25-30 minutes rotating pan after 13 minutes. Cool and serve from skillet.


Salmon & Vegetables on the Genesis Gas and Charcoal Grills
Cedar-planked Salmon
  • 1 cedar plank soaked in water for an hour
  • 21/2-3 lb. salmon fillet
  • Juice from a lime
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 whole scallion, chopped
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1/3 cup olive oil

Make the marinade by squeezing all the juice from a lime into a medium sized bowl. Whisk in the mustard and the honey. While still whisking, add the olive oil slowly. Now add the scallions. Place salmon on a rimmed platter and salt/pepper the flesh. Pour half the marinade over the fish and brush to cover evenly. While you are doing this, check the fish for pin bones - remove any you see with needle nose pliers.

Place soaked cedar plank over direct heat for 3-5 minutes keeping watch so it doesn't actually flame. After the edges start to char, move plank to indirect heat and place salmon directly on top. Close the grill and cook for 20-25 minutes. Serve with remaining marinade.

Horseradish crusted Salmon
  • 1 salmon fillet 21/2-3 lb.
  • Olive oil

Pour this mixture over salmon. Sprinkle seasoned panko breadcrumbs over sour cream and horseradish covered salmon. Place foil on grill over indirect heat for 20-30 minutes.

Grilled Garlic and Rosemary Potatoes
  • 1 lb. baby red potatoes
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Rosemary branches to use as skewers
  • 1/4-1/2 cup olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Finely chop about 1 tbsp. of the rosemary needles and put them in the bowl with the potatoes. Discard or save the remaining needles for another use. Now pour olive oil into the bowl and toss the potatoes to coat them evenly with the seasonings. Take potato pieces and skewer them onto a stem of rosemary. When all the potatoes are skewered, place the skewers directly on the grill over medium heat for 25-30 minutes turning a few times.
