Sizzle and speed make these easy grilling recipes everyone's smoky favorites.
Jalapeno Popper Mexican Street Corn
One of the best things about summer is fresh sweet corn, and this recipe is a definite standout. We love its creamy dressing, crunchy panko coating and spicy jalapeno kick. If you’re really feeling wild, sprinkle these with a bit of cooked and crumbled bacon! —Crystal Schlueter, Northglenn, Colorado
Marinated in flavours of garlic and lime, this tangy margarita chicken is ready to go whenever the coals are hot! Serve with roasted corn on the cob and lemonade. —Kelly Bruneman, Cedar Park, Texas
Dry-Rub Grilled Pork Chops over Cannellini Greens
My family was not a huge fan of pork until I tried this pork chops and green beans recipe. Feel free to incorporate your favourite herbs into the dry rub. You can use the rub on boneless skinless chicken breast or other meats, too. —Michael Cirlincione, Stockton, New Jersey
Need a simple sidekick to serve with steaks or chops? Try these grilled potatoes, which are bursting with fresh flavour. I make this recipe for picnics and potlucks. The potatoes turn out tender and well-seasoned. Plus, there’s one less pot to wash! —Jena Coffey, Rock Hill, Missouri
The Best Baby Back Ribs
I first marinate each rack of ribs, then add a zesty rub before grilling them. They always turn out moist and flavourful. —Iola Egle, Bella Vista, Arkansas
Hawaiian Turkey Burgers
My husband and I love to grill, so hamburgers are often on the menu. This recipe uses ground turkey instead of beef. Topped with pineapple slices, the burgers are moist and juicy. —Babette Watterson, Atglen, Pennsylvania
Grilled Steak Fajitas
This tasty main dish is as quick and easy to assemble as tacos. Marinating the meat overnight makes it very tender. We like the hearty and flavourful steak slices. I serve the fajitas with Spanish rice, refried beans and a gelatin dessert. —Pamela Pogue, Quitman, Texas
For a fruity alternative to the usual barbecue sauce for ribs, try this slightly spicy recipe at your next picnic. The peaches add just the right touch of sweetness and a lovely colour to this special sauce. —Sharon Taylor, Columbia, South Carolina
