A favorite Caliber burger recipe on the Caliber Pro Kamado is using turkey ground, and some other special ingredients like teriyaki sauce and mushrooms. The insulation of the Caliber Pro Kamado and the pecan chips also help to create a juicy smoky turkey burger.
Mix the turkey burger ingredients listed below and form into patties. For best results, stick burgers in the refrigerator to firm up for at least one hour prior to cooking. Heat your smoker to about 300ºF (approximately 15-20 minutes) using lump charcoal within the center of the bottom charcoal plate. Add a small handful of pecan wood chips to the fire after the burgers have been placed on the grill. Close the lid to cook for about 8-10 minutes on each side, until meat reaches 180ºF. This recipe also makes great smoked meatballs as an appetizer. You can also just grill these on the gas BBQ, but compare the difference in the flavor.
Ingredients for about 7-8 burgers:
1 lb turkey ground
1/3 large onion chopped finely
1/3 cup portabella or baby bellas chopped finely
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce or Italian herbs paste, depending on desired flavor profile

Chef Sam ends with this amazing grilled veggie sandwich that also includes a delicious and easy spread on that toasted focaccia bread. Who says gilled veggies are boring? For this recipe you definitely have to watch the video.
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.

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
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.

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.
