Tandoori Chicken I

Rating: 3.5 stars 17
This recipe was from my sister, Paula, who lived in northern England with her English husband. Indian food and 'takeaways' are very popular there. I serve this dish with rice and a spinach salad with tomato wedges, hard boiled eggs, cucumber slices, feta cheese and black olives. Doubling the marinade will provide plenty of sauce to go over the rice.

Pizza On The Grill II

Rating: 4.5 stars 85
This is pizza made on a gas grill. The results are great, and plenty of variations would work. The trick is to grill one side of the pizza dough first, then add the toppings.

Easy Fried Eggplant

This fried eggplant is golden and crisp, best served with fresh tomatoes.

Awesome Roast Beef

Rating: 4.5 stars 763
This rump roast in mushroom soup and beef broth is tender and very moist. It's made in the slow cooker, and is very easy to make. Raw vegetables, such as carrots and potatoes, may be added at the start of the cooking time, if desired. My whole family loves this recipe. The leftovers also make great roast beef sandwiches.

Scott Hibb's Amazing Whisky Grilled Baby Back Ribs

Rating: 5 stars 1389
Man, when your guests bite into these at the Memorial Day cookout, they'll savor meat so tender and juicy that it slides right off the bone and gets you the respect you deserve! I have found that the major restaurant chains who make this awesome dish pre-cook their ribs SLOWLY before the quick grilling process.

Pizza On The Grill I

Rating: 4.5 stars 455
Even with a baking stone, a conventional oven is no match for a professional oven when it comes to making pizza. At home, or rather in your backyard, the grill is the way to go. The heat of a hot grill is perfect, and makes it possible to make incredible pizza at home. Use your favorite toppings, but keep in mind not to overload the pizza. Keep it light. Try it - everything is better on the grill!

Easy Red Beans and Rice

Rating: 4.5 stars 552
This is an easy and delicious take on a Louisiana classic that you can prepare and cook in 40 minutes! I use turkey kielbasa to cut down on the fat, but not the flavor. Season with hot pepper sauce if you like.

Barbecue Ribs
Rating: Unrated 1045
This recipe is easier than it sounds. I usually cook the ribs the day before and grill them for a quick dinner the next night. FYI: the sauce is much better after it is cooked. It is not a dipping sauce.
