April 16, 2011 by andrea | 3 Comments | Filed in Beef, Grilling/BBQ, Main Dish, Quick Cooking, Recipes

Backyard Barbecued Pork Tenderloin

October 20, 2010 by andrea | 3 Comments | Filed in Grilling/BBQ, Main Dish, Pork, Recipes

Pork tenderloin, the most tender cut of pork, is great for entertaining because it’s hard to mess up. Marinated and grilled, this recipe produces meat that is tender,  juicy and flavorful. The orange juice/zest, Worcestershire sauce, garlic and barbecue sauce combination creates a unique marinade and tastes nothing like plain ol’ barbecue sauce. I served the pork with […]

June 14, 2010 by andrea | 2 Comments | Filed in From My Bookshelf, Grilling/BBQ, Recipes, Summer

With Summer and Father’s Day almost upon us, I thought I’d recommend a few grilling cookbooks that I use frequently. Any of these cookbooks would make a great gift for the Grill Master or the Father in your life, or buy them for yourself (like I did)!

Grilling Tip: Barbecue Tools

August 11, 2009 by andrea | Comments Off on Grilling Tip: Barbecue Tools | Filed in Handy Hints
