    I have been barbequing alot this summer, usually just chicken so far and pork chops, along with the usual hamburgers and hot dogs. I want to try to do different things on the grill this summer, I usually marinade the meat in Dales sauce.

    You can use this sauce on pretty much anything, so its usually what I use to marinate the meat the night before, anyone care to share anty barbeque secrets?

    I marinade, dry rub, and then sauce it on the grill.

    Layer the flavor, baby.

    Low and slow is the only way to go.

    I keep marinades real simple. I don't have a recipe per say but the basic formula is 3 parts oil, 1 part acid and then whatever herbs or spices you want to use to compliment the meat.

    I found a great book on cooking that is nothing but a list of what goes best with what as far as herbs, spices etc

    [ame=http://www.amazon.com/Flavor-Bible-Essential-Creativity-Imaginative/dp/0316118400]Amazon.com: The Flavor Bible: The Essential Guide to Culinary Creativity, Based on the Wisdom of America's Most Imaginative Chefs (9780316118408): Karen Page, Andrew Dornenburg: Books[/ame]

    I usually pick a few herbs and spices out of the lists to add to a marinade.

    As far as dry rubs I buy some and make some myself I tend to favor savory/ spicy over sweet

    here's a good place to start

    Simple Dry Rub Recipes That Work Wonders

    Sauces are really fun. Most people stick to a basic tomato based BBQ sauce. They tend to be sweet for my taste.

    I have a couple that I like to make

    Chipotle Lime sauce

    1 small can of chipotles in Adobo sauce

    I use a stick blender to puree them seeds and all. You can remove the seeds if you want less heat.

    The juice of 3 or 4 limes

    some light oil like canola or walnut

    Salt, pepper, onions, garlic, ancho, cayenne and smoked paprika and some honey or brown sugar.

    I can't tell you amounts as i just wing it.

    I also do a tangerine, maple, habanero that rocks

    The two best salmon dishes I've ever had were prepared on the grill...

    One was a full half, covered with cracked black pepper, purple onion slices (COVERED) and thick lemon slices. Wrap in tin foil and place on the grill for however long it takes depending on the heat and the size of the filet. But it doesn't take long. Better to cook not long enough than too long...open carefully, lots of steam and juice. Serve with the juice, which is delish. You can choose to discard or keep the onions.

    Salmon steaks on the grill are fast, yummy, and you don't smell up the house. Put whatever you like on them, just make sure your grill is oiled or the fish is...
