It’s anyone’s call. And there’s only so much “comfort food” you can stand. You’re craving something different. For much of the country, winter grilling rules are still in play. Which is why we combed our vast collection of recipes for dishes that...

On the Keto Diet? Your Grill or Smoker Can Help

On the Keto Diet? Your Grill or Smoker Can Help

This past holiday season, you couldn’t lob a meatball across a room without hitting a partisan of the Ketogenic diet. So when CNN announced January 3 it was among the most-searched for diet-related terms in 2018, we weren’t surprised. In fact, we were intrigued as we sometimes receive emails and messages on social media from people who’ve intentionally lost weight while stepping up their grilling game. After doing a bit of research, we discovered many of the recipes we’ve published...

Don’t Lose These: Recipes for the “Cadillac” of Salmon

Don’t Lose These: Recipes for the “Cadillac” of Salmon

Salmon is the little black dress of the fin fish world—beautiful, flavorful, and above all, versatile. It can be baked, poached, sautéed, and of course, grilled or smoked. No wonder it’s a global (and Raichlen!) favorite. But its appeal doesn’t stop there. Salmon’s payload of protein and Omega-3 fatty acids makes it one of the healthiest seafood choices for consumers. For American salmon lovers, the coming weeks on the calendar are...

A Toast to Grilling and St. Patrick

A Toast to Grilling and St. Patrick

Perhaps you’re neither Irish nor Catholic. Maybe you hate Notre Dame football. There’s still no harm in celebrating on Saturday, March 17, the name day of St. Patrick, the 5th century British cleric who was enslaved as a teen by Irish pirates and returned to the island as an adult.

What is Lent? For the 40 days preceding Easter Sunday, many Americans, especially Catholics, observe Lent as an important religious period of the year. The activities of Lent are meant to increase mindfulness, prayer and adherence to certain practices. How does fish relate to Lent? One particular way that observers can participate during Lent is to give up red meat on Fridays (or during the entire 40 day period). While that may cancel a weekly Friday...

Grilling with Cherry Wood and Fresh Cherries

Grilling with Cherry Wood and Fresh Cherries

When it comes to flavor, nothing can beat the aroma of wood smoke. You may be familiar with using hickory, apple or oak wood, but have you tried smoking with cherry wood? Cherry can be used the same way you would other varieties: toss soaked wood chips on the coals of your charcoal grill or add them to the smoker box of your gas grill. I came to appreciate fragrant cherry wood during my sojourn to the Pacific Northwest—Cherry Wood Chips are...
