Grilled Vegetable Panini

Need summer grilling recipes that are vegetarian-friendly? Check out this flavorful grilled panini recipe. The panini filling consists of grilled vegetables, including red onion, zucchini and bell peppers.

Baby Back Ribs with Boom Sauce

No backyard grilling season is complete without serving up some tantalizing ribs. Consult this recipe to add a little heat to your baby back ribs. It calls for habanero hot sauce, but you can amend the hot sauce to suit your preferences. For more heat, use a ghost pepper sauce. But, if that’s too extreme for your taste buds, opt for something a bit lower on the Scoville scale. For example, try a hot sauce made from jalapenos.

Sweet Maple Barbecue Chicken Kabobs

This finger-licking-good recipe uses pure maple syrup instead of honey in its BBQ sauce, adding a touch of caramelized sweetness. Simply serve these chicken kabobs alongside cornbread and grilled corn on the cob.
