grilled ribs

How to Grill Ribs Techniques

I was not a huge fan of ribs until I found the proper barbecue sauce to go with them. For me that sauce was Corky's, for you it may be something else, but the perfect balance between sauce and meat made me fall in love with ribs. Anyway this article is about a three different cooking techniques that are used to cook pork ribs, not the rib recipes themselves. Click here for more.

How to Grill Pork Chops

We tested 3 different grilling techniques to grill some pork chops to see what is actually the best way to grill them. Every recipe we had found called for searing the pork chop then finishing it over indirect heat. Since this is the way I grill almost any small item we never called into question weather or not it was right or not.  Click here for more.

bacon on the grill

How to Grill Bacon (with video)

Can you grill Bacon? Yes, this is something every griller will try at least once but, I do not recommend grilling raw bacon without use of a pan or bacon grilling rack. Throwing uncooked bacon directly onto your grills grates will cause quite a mess inside your grill that you will be cleaning for hours. Instead there is a much simpler solution. Click here for more.

How to Grill Brats

Brat's are an easy thing to grill however, there are a few basic thing to remember. First of all unlike hot dogs, bratwurst is a raw product and most if not all have a casing where most hot dogs are fully cooked and only the high end ones have a casing. What this means to you is you should rinse them before cooking and you will need to make sure that they are cooked thoroughly. After you have rinsed your brats you are ready to grill them and all you'll need is some tongs. Click here for more.

What is a Pig Wing?

A pig wing sometimes referred to as drummies is the lower pork shank with a single bone running through the center. While a pig wing may be cooked any style a chicken wing can be cooked traditionally they are cooked barbecue style, with smoke, low and slow then sauced.
