Watermelon Feta And Balsamic "Pizzas"

1 watermelon slice, cut 1-inch thick from center of the widest part
1 oz crumbled Feta cheese
5 to 6 Kalamata Olives, sliced
1 tsp mint leaves
1/2 tbsp balsamic glaze

Slice the widest part of a round watermelon in half. Lay the flat side down on a cutting board and cut a 1-inch thick slice from each half. Cut each half into 4 wedges.

Place them on a round dish like a pizza and top with cheese, olives, balsamic glaze and mint leaves.


Azeka’s Ribs

5 pounds beef crosscut (flanken style) ribs
3 cups dark soy sauce
1 cup unseasoned rice vinegar
3 tablespoons fish sauce
2 cups water
1 lemon, zested and juiced
1 cup grated Asian pear
3 cups brown sugar
4 tablespoons crushed garlic
2 tablespoons crushed ginger
8 tablespoons sesame seeds
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
1 bunch green onions, chopped

Make the marinade: In a large bowl or plastic bag, mix together dark soy sauce, rice vinegar, fish sauce, water, lemon zest, lemon juice, and grated pear. The pear tenderizes the ribs and adds some sweetness. Add brown sugar and mix until dissolved. Add garlic, ginger, sesame seeds and half of the chopped green onions, and then add ribs or pour over if using a bowl. I
like using freezer style zip top bags because they're sturdy and can be easily turned while marinating.
Marinate as long as possible! I like making the marinade on Friday and cooking the ribs on Sunday. Try for at least 6-8 hours minimum.
Cook ribs over a medium grill for approximately 4 minutes per side.
Don't overcook! These ribs are thin and cook fast. They can still be pink inside.
Toast sesame seeds in a small frying pan until brown. Watch carefully, they can go from brown to burnt quickly.
Boil the marinade and serve the ribs, sprinkled with remaining green onions and toasted sesame seeds. Boil any remaining marinade to serve on the side for white rice.


EJ'S Simple Oven-BBQ Ribs

2 racks baby back ribs
6 tablespoons Emeril's Rib Rub spice blend
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon celery salt
Emeril's Sweet Original Bam BQ Barbecue Sauce, or your favorite barbecue sauce

Preheat the oven to 300°F. Line a large baking sheet with a piece of aluminum foil that is large enough to cover the pan twice (you will be folding this over the ribs and sealing it).
Arrange the ribs, meat side up, in one layer on the prepared baking sheet. In a small bowl, combine the Rib Rub, salt, pepper, and celery salt, and stir to combine. Divide the seasoning evenly between the 2 slabs of ribs, coating them well on both sides. Fold the extra length of foil over the ribs, and seal it tightly on all sides. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake, undisturbed, for 2 1/2 to 3 hours, or until the ribs are very tender.
Preheat a grill to medium-high (or leave the oven on).
Remove the baking sheet from the oven and peel back the foil so that the ribs are exposed. Using a basting brush or the back of a spoon, coat the meaty side of the rubs lightly with barbecue sauce. Place the slabs of ribs, meaty side up, on the grill and cook until the barbecue sauce is thickened and lightly browned, 5 to 10 minutes. (Alternatively, return the baking sheet to the oven and continue to bake the ribs, without the foil covering, until the barbecue sauce is thickened and lightly browned, 20 to 30 minutes.)
Plating / Assembly: Remove the ribs from the grill (or oven), and let them cool briefly. Then cut between the ribs and serve, with additional barbecue sauce on the side if desired. Recipe courtesy of Emeril Lagasse


Grilled Chicken with Alabama White Barbecue Sauce


1/4 cup sugar
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Two 12-ounce bottles amber beer, chilled
1 head garlic, split crosswise
2 fresh bay leaves
2 teaspoons whole black peppercorns
Two 4-pound chickens, cut into 8 pieces each
Vegetable oil, for brushing

Alabama White Barbecue Sauce:

1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons drained prepared horseradish
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Hot pepper sauce, such as Tabasco, for seasoning

For the chicken: In a pot large enough to hold the chicken, combine the sugar, 1/4 cup salt and 2 cups cold water. Stir until the salt and sugar dissolve. Pour in the beer and add the garlic, bay leaves and peppercorns. Submerge the chicken in the brine. Cover and refrigerate at least 8 hours and up to overnight.

For the Alabama white barbecue sauce: Meanwhile, whisk together the mayonnaise, vinegar, horseradish, sugar and Worcestershire in a medium bowl until smooth. Season with 1 teaspoon salt, hot sauce to taste and a liberal grinding of black pepper. Cover and refrigerate until you're ready to cook the chicken. (Can be made a day ahead, along with the chicken brine.)

Prepare a grill for medium indirect grilling. Drain and rinse the chicken and pat very dry. Season the chicken lightly with salt and more liberally with black pepper. Brush lightly with vegetable oil.

Brush the grill grates with vegetable oil and lay the chicken, bone-side down, on the indirect heat side of the grill. Cover and cook until the skin is golden and the chicken is about three-quarters cooked (130 to 135 degrees F on an instant read thermometer), 20 to 25 minutes. Flip the chicken pieces so they are skin-side down and continue indirect grilling until the chicken is cooked through and reads 165 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer, about 15 minutes more.

Brush the chicken all over with some of the Alabama white barbecue sauce and move the chicken, skin-side down, to the direct heat side of the grill. Grill just until the skin crisps, about 3 minutes, moving as necessary to keep it from burning. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Serve the remaining Alabama white sauce on the side for dipping.


Spice Rubbed Smoked Ribs with Maple-Horseradish Baste

Maple-Horseradish Glaze:



Whisk all ingredients together in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.


Stir spices together in a medium bowl.

About 1/2 hour before cooking time, soak hickory chips in enough water to cover. Drain chips. In a covered grill, place slow burning charcoal in both sides of a drip pan. Sprinkle coals with wood chips. 

Rub top side of each rack of ribs with about 3 tablespoons of the rub. Place ribs, bone side down, on grill. Close cover or place cover on the smoker. Grill about 1 1/2 hours, adding chips every 20 minutes. During the last 10 minutes of grilling, brush liberally with the Maple-Horseradish Glaze.



Crispy Grilled Chicken Thighs

1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Kosher salt
8 skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs (about 2 1/4 pounds)
Vegetable oil, for brushing

3 large tomatoes, halved crosswise
Freshly ground black pepper

Combine the mayonnaise, chili powder, cayenne and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.
Preheat a grill to medium low. Brush the grill grates with vegetable oil. Place the breadcrumbs in a shallow dish, then add the chicken, turning to thoroughly coat. Grill the chicken, turning once, until golden brown and cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes per side.
Meanwhile, brush the tomatoes with vegetable oil and season with salt and black pepper. Place cut-side down on the grill and cook until marked, about 4 minutes per side. Serve with the chicken. Yield: 4 servings - Source: Foodnetwork
