Grilled Zucchini

Grilled zucchini is such an easy appetizer or side dish to serve at your summer BBQ.

Wash zucchini and then cut in either rounds or spears. If grilling directly on the grates, we recommend cutting into rounds because they tend to flip easier without falling into the fire. Grilling baskets work great with vegetable pieces.

Lightly coat your zucchini with olive oil, salt and pepper. Heat the grill to a medium or high heat. If using a charcoal grill, place about a pie plate full of charcoal in a pile at the bottom of the grill to reach a medium to high temperature. Avoid using smoking chips with vegetables because they tend to impart a bitter taste.

Grill the zucchini for about 8-10 minutes on each side to get the nice char marks and soften the vegetables. If you prefer, add a little more olive oil, salt and pepper to taste right before serving. A delicious side dish addition to any summer BBQ. If grilling more veggies on your Rockwell by Caliber Social Grill check out this recipe from Sam the Cooking Guy by clicking here.

Ingredients:
5-6 Zucchini cut into rounds or spears
Olive oil
Salt & pepper to taste

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.

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.

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!
