(OMG, have you seen Steven’s latest book, How to Grill Vegetables?

Here are just a few of the recipes we’ll be making in June. Check out www.barbecuebible.com for thousands more!

Grilling Recipes for June

Smoked Nectarine Bellinis

This cocktail’s namesake was invented by world-famous barman, Giuseppe Cipriani, in Venice in 1948, who was inspired by the region’s white peaches and a Champagne-like wine called Prosecco. Steven (who loves Venice, by the way), ups the ante by smoking sugared nectarines (a stone fruit similar to peaches) before pureeing it and adding Prosecco. Almost too beautiful to drink.

Farm Stand Salad

Shopping farm stands or local farmer’s markets is—let’s be honest—so much more satisfying than negotiating the aisles at supermarkets. Not only are you supporting your own community, but the quality of the food, whether it be vegetables or artisanal meats, is usually superior. This salad comes together quickly with locally-grown produce like fire-roasted sweet corn, grape tomatoes, arugula, and slender haricots verts. The salad is a perfect accompaniment to a grilled summer meal.

Oaxacan Pork Fajitas

Skirt steak is the traditional protein in fajitas, but its popularity (especially for the more desirable outer skirt steak) has driven prices up at the meat counter. Pork is still a relative bargain, and replaces beef in this great weeknight or party meal. Serve with Mexican beer or Mezcalinis.

Ham and Cheese Chicken Thighs

Fancy enough for company, these bacon-wrapped smoked chicken thighs may sound like pure Americana, but the inspiration comes from Belgrade. In Serbia, grilled chicken and pork are routinely stuffed with smoked ham and piquant cheese.

Wagyu Cheeseburger Sliders

We love sliders, as they’re perfect for smaller appetites. (Larger appetites can eat two or three!) Wagyu beef is an indulgent treat, but if not available, form these burgers from ground chuck. Grated cheese is the “secret ingredient” that makes these sliders even more moist and juicy. Dress with arugula or butter lettuce, slices of sun-ripened tomatoes, and any other condiments you love. It’s OMG good.
