the years, I have created and accumulated many delicious
barbecue marinade recipes that I would like to share

visible fat need help in staying moist on a grill. Marinades
do the job of tenderizing when the fat has been removed.

the marinade and meat, chicken or fish in large heavy-duty

vegetables make for a delectable accompaniment to a
barbecue feast. Summer squash, tomatoes, sweet onions,
bell peppers, eggplant and my all time favorite - portabello

on a little more extra virgin or other flavored olive
oil and two tablespoons of gremolata (flat-leaf parsley,
garlic and lemon zest minced together). Serve vegetables
with any other grilled foods.
