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...

Steak and Potatoes: Florentine Steak and Garlic Fingerlings

Steak and Potatoes: Florentine Steak and Garlic Fingerlings

Several weeks ago, we posted the first installment in our new series, “Steak and Potatoes.” We thought now was an appropriate time to post another as everyone is weary of Thanksgiving leftovers and hungry for a good piece of steak! Tuscany’s cuisine is primarily based on the concept of “cucina povera,” which translates to “poor kitchen.” Pasta, beans, local vegetables, and olive oil are the primary building blocks of Tuscan cuisine. Which is why it’s ironic that one...

Steak and Potatoes: First Up, Tomahawks and Hasselbacks

Welcome to the first installment of “Steak and Potatoes,” a new series by BarbecueBible.com celebrating the beautiful, enduring relationship on the plate of carnivores’ favorite meat and that humble starch, the potato. Yes, steak—especially one of the generously marbled, more tender cuts—qualifies as a financial indulgence, but not when compared to what you’d spend at a high-end steakhouse.

Because, let’s face it: A great steak can set you back more than a few bucks. If you’re insecure when grilling a pricey steak, you’re...

The Cold Grate Method for Grilling Steaks

The Cold Grate Method for Grilling Steaks

If your idea of a perfect steak is crusty on the outside, grilled to a uniform rare to medium-rare, masterfully seasoned with a hint of wood smoke, and tantalizingly juicy when you cut into it, listen up. There’s a new grilling method you’ve probably never heard of. The secret? A cold grate.
