Grill Recipes for Beginners

Grilling can be an intimidating cooking method to approach. To ease into it, here are some simple recipes that are perfect for aspiring grill masters.

Grilled Pineapple

Grilling pineapple is as simple as purchasing spears of pineapple and grilling them on medium-high heat until you see char marks (5-10 minutes) on each side. To enhance the flavor, try sprinkling the grilled pineapple with steak seasoning.

Grilled Baby Back Ribs

Ribs are a grilling classic and can be easy to prepare. Dry and remove the membrane from the full rack of ribs. Season with your favorite spices and refrigerate overnight. When ready, heat your grill to medium-high heat and wrap your rib rack in tin foil. Grill for 25 minutes, flip, and grill for an additional 25 minutes. Remove the tin foil and grill bone-side up for 3 minutes. Remove from grill and glaze with your favorite BBQ sauce.

Grilled Corn

Add a smokey flavor to your corn by grilling it! Remove the silk and husks (except for the inner-most husk). Heat the grill to medium-high heat and brush with canola oil. Place the corn on the grill for 10-15 minutes and rotate occasionally.
