185. Tomato Barbecue Sauce p.479

There’s no recipe for this one on Epicurious.
This barbecue sauce is meant to accompany Lillie’s North Carolina Chopped Barbecue, which we’ll get to next time. It’s apparently the style of barbecue sauce popular in Lillie’s part of North Carolina, and is best served slathered over chopped pork barbecue. It probably works well on most grilled [...]

163. Grilled Tuna with Warm White Bean Salad p.299

163. Grilled Tuna with Warm White Bean Salad p.299

The recipe in the book is similar to this one on Epicurious, except that the book calls for larger (6 oz) tuna steaks.
This dish was a triumph. As I’ve mentioned before my dining companion isn’t a fan of fish, and the book has 95 Fish and Shellfish recipes for us to get through. While she’s [...]

127. Barbecued Chile-Marinated Spareribs p.490

There’s no recipe for this one.
These ribs are dead simple, but they take some forethought. The ribs are simmered in water for an hour, then marinated in sauce of New Mexico chiles, ketchup, garlic, cider vinegar, brown sugar, salt, tequila, vegetable oil, ground cumin, and ground allspice for the next eight hours. Half of the [...]

115. Grilled Calamari with Arugula p.344

115. Grilled Calamari with Arugula p.344

The recipe
This dish was fun to prepare, fun to serve, and fun to eat. I served it at a friend’s place for a pot-luck. Bringing a bunch of squid over to someone’s house might seem a bit weird, but it worked out really well.
I broke the squid down and scored the tubes at home. Incidentally [...]

114. Foolproof Grilled Chicken p.363

114. Foolproof Grilled Chicken p.363

The recipe
The blurb before the recipe says that the secret to perfect grilled chicken is to brine it then toss it in a vinaigrette once it’s done. I’ve never really had a problem with my non-brined, non-dressed grilled chicken, but this version does have its charms. Brining makes things taste good by saturating them with [...]

104. Beef Tenderloin with Cornichon Tarragon Sauce p.416

104. Beef Tenderloin with Cornichon Tarragon Sauce p.416

The recipe
Some good friends were coming to dinner, and I wanted to make something a bit special. When I’m looking for dishes suitable for an occasion, beef tenderloin is frequently at the top of that list. I had frozen part of the tenderloin I used for the Twenty-First-Century Beef Wellington so it was an easy [...]

103. Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Mojo Sauce p.476

103. Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Mojo Sauce p.476

The recipe
I chose this recipe because it was over 30 degrees, humid, and didn’t look like it was going to cool down overnight. We had dinner late because we couldn’t stand the thought of eating until the relative cool of the evening. This tenderloin fit the bill for a light dish that wouldn’t heat up [...]

93. Grilled Butterflied Leg of Lamb with Lemon, Herbs, and Garlic p.502

93. Grilled Butterflied Leg of Lamb with Lemon, Herbs, and Garlic p.502

The recipe
Spring lamb simply prepared is one of the best rewards I can think of for having suffered through a long winter. Spring lamb comes from a younger animal than lamb without an adjective. Generally spring lamb is 3-5 months old, but it can be called lamb right up until a year old. As [...]
