Five Summer Recipes For the Grill

Summertime is the season for all things smoky. The Kamado Joe grills make grilling foolproof and fun. This is especially true when the iKamand brings its temperature precision to the party. But, what to grill? To protect you from decision paralysis, here are five deliciously simple recipes created by Chef Eric for Kamado Joe. We’ve chosen to highlight these because of their easygoing nature. All five are perfect for relaxing grilling on a weeknight or any night.

Corn on the Cob

Smoked Corn on the Cob takes delicious summer sweet corn to new heights.  The smoke from sweet wood enhances the natural sweetness. Fresh summer corn is tender enough to stay on the grill and really soak up flavor.  Hands-off grilling is much more convenient than standing over a large pot of boiling water on the stove. These aspects combine to make this a supreme celebration of summer’s best corn.

Pork Tenderloin

Sweet and Spicy Pork Tenderloin is a lean yet juicy dinner centerpiece. Pork tenderloin is a healthy cut with very little fat and natural tenderness. It cooks quickly and conveniently. However, these qualities make it prone to drying out. Grilling the pork enhances the flavor. The iKamand continuously controls the Kamado Joe grill. This teamup of cooking power produces delicious, succulent pork every time. 

Grilled Salmon Burger

The Pulled Salmon Burger riffs delightfully on two classic grilling preparations. Salmon grills beautifully, but can fall apart and dry out like any seafood. Pulled meat, meanwhile, is designed to fall apart. If it’s a little dry that means it soaks up sauce all the better. By making pulled salmon you build in a cushion. Even if the salmon’s edges are a bit parched, or it flakes while you plate it, that doesn’t matter. The salmon will be shredded and soaked in flavorful sauce. However the iKamand guarantees it’ll be delicious from edge to edge.

Pastrami at Home

Homemade Pastrami is a gift you can keep giving yourself. Not only is the meat luscious and flavorful, but the recipe is designed to yield leftovers. Prepare for the best sandwiches possible! Pastrami piled high on good bread with mustard is delicious anytime. It’s even better on those days when it’s just too hot to cook. Do note that the meat requires brining before it’s ready to cook. However,  the recipe is well worth that little bit of planning. 

Sweet Endings

Finally, we know you’ve saved room for dessert. Roasted Pineapple with Salted Caramel demonstrates the beauty of grilled fruit. Grilling fruit intensifies its flavors,  caramelizes its sugars, and releases its juices. A basting of rich caramel soaks in deeply.  The caramel can be made ahead of time. The Joetisserie makes cooking the pineapple almost effortless. Enjoy a lusciously sweet end to a day of delicious, foolproof grilling!
