The Ultimate Summer Steak Salad

Sam the Cooking Guy grills up wagyu steak and corn on his Rockwell by Caliber Social Grill to create the ultimate summer steak salad. To start, mix the salad dressing by tossing together 3 tablespoons of soy sauce, 4 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of honey and sriracha to your heat level. Set the dressing aside.

For the salad, mix together chopped parsley, cilantro, red onion, green onion, red Holland peppers, and tomatoes. When ready to toss the salad add the grilled corn, avocado, steak and dressing.

To save time and ensure doneness of the corn, Sam reveals a secret of wrapping the corn with saran wrap and microwaving them for 7 minutes. Remove the saran wrap and brush the corn with oil. Place the corn on the grill and rotate continuously until they have a nice char across all of them.

Before grilling the steaks, make the basting marinade in a small skillet. Melt together 1/4 cup of butter, 4 tablespoons of soy sauce, and a clove of pressed garlic.

Sprinkle the steaks with salt and pepper before placing them on the grill. Turn the steaks every couple of minutes to get nice hash grill lines. After flipping the steaks begin basting them with the special sauce, and cook them until medium rare, about 130-140 degrees in the center of the steak.

Slice the steaks, and toss the salad with the remaining ingredients and dressing. Enjoy this ultimate summer steak salad, compliments of Sam.

BBQ Ribs!

BBQ Ribs on the Caliber Pro Kamado Charcoal Grill and Smoker never tasted better!

These ribs will definitely be the hit of the party. To start, rinse your ribs in cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Trim off the excess fat and sharp bone pieces. Cut racks in half for easier placement into the 6-rack max rib accessory. Lightly coat the entire surface of the ribs with olive oil and mustard to help tenderize the meat. Cover the coated ribs in foil and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, preferably overnight. Right before cooking, apply a coating of your favorite rib rub over all surfaces of the ribs.

Prepare the Caliber Pro Kamado Smoker by filling the blaze basket accessory with lump charcoal. The basket should sit on the charcoal plate at the rear of the smoker with the hinged part of the grate above it so you can access it. Bring the temperature of the smoker up to 230ºF.  Once the temp has settled, place your rib rack accessory on the top grate and then your ribs vertically into the rack. Now add a small handful of apple and pecan smoking chips to the blaze basket and close the lid. The smoker will “smoke” for the first 30-60 minutes of the 4-5 hour cooking process and after this time, there should be “clean” heat exiting the top vent. Too much time with “smoke” may impart a bitter taste into your ribs.

Continue to cook the ribs, checking them every hour or so with the heat not exceeding 250-275ºF until the ribs are fully cooked (approximately 4-5 hours). Glaze the ribs with your favorite BBQ sauce or just enjoy the juicy smoky infused meaty flavor.

Ingredients for 6 racks of ribs:

  • 6 Racks of baby back pork ribs
  • Olive oil and mustard
  • Your favorite rib rub

Heirloom Tomato Pizza

Making amazing pizza on the Caliber Pro Kamado Grill/Smoker is one of the great perks of this grill. It not only crisps the top of the pizza, but it also keeps in the moisture making the perfect pizza.

To get started, place the pizza stone on the grill or in the oven or smoker and preheat to a high temperature (450° F). Sprinkle either cornmeal or flour on top of a large pizza spatula before spreading out the dough on it for easy sliding on to the pizza stone. After nicely spreading out the dough on the spatula, sprinkle olive oil across it. Next, place the slices of mozzarella cheese, heirloom tomatoes and basil across the pizza. Once your grill/oven and pizza stone has preheated, transfer the pizza from the spatula on to the stone. If using the Caliber Pro Kamado Grill/Smoker it is best to place a heaping pie plate full of charcoal in a pile at the bottom of the grill to reach a high temperature and cook with the lid shut and vents open for about 6-8 minutes. The Rockwell by Caliber Social Gas Grill is ideal for crisping the tops of pizzas because of the short dome heat area. The Caliber Indoor Pro Range is also easy to set to a 450° F temperature. Pizza will also be finished in about 6-8 minutes in the oven or gas grill. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
Pizza dough
Cornmeal or flour

Peruvian Rotisserie Chicken

Try out this Peruvian rotisserie chicken on the Caliber Pro Kamado with Sam the Cooking Guy. In Sam fashion, he changes up the normal recipe by adding in mayonnaise to ensure the juicy texture of the chicken. The insulation within the Kamado also ensures that it will be a succulent chicken. 

Here’s the simple ingredients that make up the Peruvian baste for the chicken:

  • 2 TBSP mayonnaise
  • 5 cloves of crushed garlic
  • Pinch of oregano
  • Pinch of smoked paprika
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 TBSP soy paste
  • 3 TBSP oil
  • 3 TBSP white vinegar

Baste the chicken with the sauce, but leave some if it for basting throughout the cooking process.

It’s recommended to wear heat protective gloves when inserting the rotisserie rod and chicken. Let the rotisserie run for about an 75 to 90 minutes while basting periodically. To check the doneness, turn rotisserie motor off and insert the thermometer into the thickest part of breast with temperature reaching 165 (+/- 5 degrees).

Enjoy this delicious chicken. For the full recipe with Sam click here or below.
