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.

Hawaiian Short Ribs

Sam the Cooking Guy grills some insanely delicious Hawaiian-style short ribs on the Rockwell by Caliber Social Grill. Using a handful of ingredients in this marinade recipe below and the right char on these flanken-style beef short ribs, Sam creates plate lunch ribs that make you feel like you are on the island of Hawaii.

Hawaiian Style Marinade:
1/4 cup soy sauce
4 cloves of crushed garlic
4 Tablespoons of brown sugar
2 Tablespoons rice vinegar
1 Tablespoon fresh grated ginger
1-2 Tablespoons of sesame chili oil

It is best to leave the marinade on the steaks overnight to really soak in the flavor, or at least a couple of hours if you are short on time. When ready to grill the ribs, it just takes 3-4 of grilling on each side. And, you can put some of the leftover marinade onto the ribs while they are cooking for even more taste.

Sam also has a very simple macaroni salad recipe in his video to go along with these amazing short ribs. Click here or below for the full video.

The Best Grilled Chicken

Sam the Cooking Guy not only makes grilled chicken easy and quick, he also makes it his “best grilled chicken recipe” on his Rockwell by Caliber Social Grill. He pounds his chicken in a zip lock bag with a little bit of olive oil to ensure the chicken breasts cook evenly.

Sam’s marinade is made of olive oil, crushed garlic, lemon juice, kosher salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and fresh rosemary. The marinade is only left on for a short time before grilling just to infuse the chicken with flavor.

Sam cuts each chicken breast in two to get four even portions, and turns them during to get the hash grill marks on the chicken, which add more texture and taste. For the full recipe and a little pre-cleaning demo on his grill watch the video below or click here. For Sam’s grilled chicken recipe with an easy jalapeño cream sauce, click here.

Grilled Chicken & Steak Kebabs

Chef Sam the Cooking Guy creates juicy grilled spicy teriyaki steak and buffalo chicken kebabs on his Caliber Pro Kamado Charcoal Grill/Smoker. In these simple recipes he uses filet mignon steak, red onion, red and yellow bell peppers, and for the sauce some teriyaki with a touch of sriracha for added flavor in the first skewer. For the second kebab, he uses chicken thighs and celery, and for the sauce he heats together Frank’s Hot Sauce, butter and honey.

Both sets of skewers received some sprinkles of kosher salt, but the sauces are brushed on continually after they are placed over the charcoal. Sam says to also make sure to keep cut your proteins all about the same size for even cooking. And, to complete the full tasting for the buffalo chicken kebab, it is a must to create this dipping sauce using blue cheese, sour cream, Japanese mayo, celery salt and buttermilk.

Steak three ways with Chef Sam on the Caliber grills

Learn how to cook a beautiful steak in a cast iron skillet over the Rockwell by Caliber Social Grill, on the Caliber gas grill and right over the coals of the Caliber Pro Kamado. Chef Sam’s key ingredients are an equal amount of salt, pepper and garlic powder sprinkled over the steaks. Also, he recommends leaving your steaks out for approximately 45 minutes prior to cooking them to ensure you don’t have difficulty getting them to the right temperature within the steak.

Pictured below are Sam’s Rockwell by Caliber Social Grill and his Caliber Pro Kamado Charcoal Grill/Smoker.

One of Sam’s favorite ways to cook a steak is in a cast iron skillet. He adds a secret ingredient of clarified herb butter, and the patented disappearing lid of the Rockwell grill allows this grill to double nicely as an outdoor burner.

Sam then shows you how to get the grill lines and char using the Rockwell by Caliber gas grill with steaks, and then creates his grandma’s recipe sauce to brush over and finish off this steak.

Sam goes old school by cooking the steak directly on the charcoal within the Caliber Pro Kamado.

ABOUT SAM THE COOKING GUY

Sam quit a biotech job in July of 2001 to try his hand as the host of a travel show.  But a month before a trip to shoot in Tokyo and Hong Kong, September 11th happened – and that changed everything.He decided to stick with TV, but switched from travel to cooking and eventually landed a twice-weekly 2-minute cooking segment on a local morning news program.  The segments caught on and grew into a 30-minute show appropriately named ‘Sam the Cooking Guy’ – an irreverent mix of humor and easy-to-replicate recipes. It’s ‘reality’ cooking – in the sense that whatever really happens when he shoots, stays in the show.  Eventually, Discovery Health came along and ‘Just Cook This! with Sam the Cooking Guy’ was born. Known for his ‘big in taste and small in effort’ philosophy, Sam has 15 Emmy awards, 3 cookbooks and a dozen visits to the Today Show, He’s also creates video content for companies like Chosen Foods, Bed Bath & Beyond & Bumble Bee Foods, And his casually understandable YouTube series continues his simple style, with 6-15 minute episodes.

Tequila Lime Shrimp

Watch Sam the Cooking Guy make a quick and easy tequila lime shrimp on his Rockwell by Caliber Social Grill. This recipe can also be made in a cast iron pan on the other Caliber grills or rangetop burners.

Sam starts with creating an all-purpose compound butter that includes a half cup of butter, two crushed cloves of garlic, a large minced chipotle pepper, a handful of minced cilantro and a pinch of salt and pepper. You should definitely save the leftovers to use on bread or other recipes.

Sam then heats up the cast iron pan and adds oil, 16-18 large peeled and deveined shrimp with the tail on, and chopped red and green jalapeños and green onions.

After letting it cook for a few minutes, he lifts the pan and adds a 1/4 cup of tequila and flames it above the grill to ensure the grill doesn’t catch on fire. Lastly, he adds a large dollop of the compound butter and some chopped tomatoes.

Once the pan is off the grill, he continues to stir the shrimp and garnishes the dish with a handful of minced cilantro. For the full video, click here or on the video below. Enjoy!
