Shish Kebab
My husband and I both have fond memories of our fathers firing up the grill in the backyard. When the skewers came out of hibernation, it was a sure sign that winter was finally over. Not only was my father the chief shish kebab maker in our household, he built our shish kebab machine and skewers as well. Every Armenian family has its own twist on making shish kebab (known as khorovatz in Armenian circles), and some even have a secret ingredient or two. Recipes can vary a little — or a lot! Here’s our rendition of an Armenian classic for shish kebab. Click here to see the Grilling & Barbecue Guide 2012.

Bulgogi (Korean Barbecued Beef)
Bulgogi is a marinated meat dish made with thin slices of beef, usually rib-eye. It is no doubt one of the most well-known Korean dishes to non-Koreans. The important thing is to find the right balance between saltiness and sweetness. Using generous amounts of garlic and sesame oil is important to create authentic bulgogi. The same marinade also can be used for chicken or pork. The best way to enjoy Korean barbecued meat is to wrap a bite-sized piece in a lettuce leaf with a dollop of ssamjang (spice paste) or doenjang (soybean paste).

Kalbi (often spelled galbi) is a marinated, grilled short rib dish that is both tasty and easy to prepare. In South Korea, kalbi is also made with whole short ribs that are butterflied so they remain thin. This style is called wang kalbi (“king ribs”), and the resulting flap of meat attached to the large short rib bone provides for a unique presentation; many kalbi enthusiasts are convinced that this style of kalbi has a superior taste. I find them equally delicious.

Steaks with Rosemary, Garlic, and Olive Oil
Looking for an easy, tasty steak recipe? Look no further. Here's a marinade that works just as well for sirloin as it does for flank steak, which is often my go-to red meat. Make sure to use fresh rosemary; the flavor profile of dried rosemary is just not the same as the fresh product. Click here to see Cooking Temperatures, Simplified.

Chicken Wings
The hint of lime in these wings elevates this from the ordinary to the POW! And, the honey and coffee softens the bite of the chile. It makes a great appetizer and a delicious entrée to take on picnics and, of course, to the baseball game, be it Little or Major League. Because they're baked, they can be made in any season and served with rice and a salad, or crudités and a Thai noodle dish. Thai Iced Coffee is a terrific accompaniment. Spices, sauces, and chiles are available in the Asian or Mexican sections of most major grocery stores.

Gazpacho-Style Wheat Berry Salad
Just about any tomatoes will work here: globe, plum, or even cherry tomatoes. Just make sure they have that characteristic "tomato" smell before you buy them at the grocery store. There’s no need to seed those tomatoes. If you do, you’ll inadvertently juice them a bit — and you want to retain all that juice to make the dressing. This salad gets a little watery — on purpose. The vegetables break down and release their trapped liquids, thereby making a soupy dressing, a soup/salad hybrid. Serve it in bowls. See all salad recipes.

We go to my wife’s family’s Thanksgiving dinner every year and it’s one of my rare days off from cooking, but the truth is that I love to smoke turkey and I don’t believe in waiting for Thanksgiving to enjoy it. It’s an excellent way to feed a crowd at any celebration. And I believe dark meat and white meat are equally delicious, so I make sure I get some of both. Encourage your guests to do the same. And if you’ve never considered it before, you might try pulling the meat off the bird the same way you would when making pulled chicken to have pilled turkey sandwiches. They’re good, too.
