Bacon-Wrapped, Jalapeño Popper-Stuffed Grilled Chicken Breasts

A fair question: who doesn't like jalapeno poppers? With that in mind, this dynamite chicken recipe -- part of a week-long celebration of chicken breasts -- offers a drool-worthy alternative to the average, grilled bird. The chicken is filled with a luxe cream cheese and sour cream mix that's specked with canned, roasted jalapenos, garlic and Parmesan cheese. Then, it's wrapped in bacon and grilled over indirect heat. More

Adana Kebabs (Ground Lamb Kebabs)

I ate a lot of good things when I was in Istanbul last winter—eggs scrambled with tomatoes and chilies, flatbreads topped with cheese and eggs, teeny tiny dumplings served with yogurt and sumac—but kebabs, made with juicy lamb meat molded around flat metal skewers and grilled over live coals were the kind of thing that even at their worst, were still pretty freaking awesome. Here's how to make them at their best. More

Thai-Style Grilled Chicken (Gai Yang)

Thai-style grilled chicken coated in a marinade flavored with cilantro, white pepper, and fish sauce is one of the tastiest things you'll ever pull off of your grill. There's a reason you can't walk more than a few blocks in Bangkok without catching a whiff of its intense aroma. Here's how to make it in your own backyard. More

Slow-Smoked Porterhouse Steaks

Smoking is generally a method reserved for long-cooking, tough cuts like pork shoulder, ribs, or beef brisket, intended to deeply flavor and tenderize the meat over the course of a half day of cooking. But with a bit of finesse and a couple hours of free time, it's perfectly possible to get that same smoky flavor into a thick-cut steak and still have it come out perfectly medium-rare and juicy, so long as you play your cards right. Here's how it's done. More

Memphis-Style Dry Ribs

Invented by a restaurant owner from Greece, Memphis dry ribs are bathed in vinegar while being grilled over smoky charcoal, then coated with an earthy, herbal rub once they're done cooking. Just don't let the name mislead you: There's nothing dry about these babies. More

Pimento-Jalapeño Cheeseburgers

There's something about the way the caviar of the South (as pimento cheese is affectionately known) melts into a rich, oozy coating, its acidity and punch of pimento flavor accenting a thick and juicy grilled burger in a way that regular cheese just can't. Add some pickled jalapeño peppers in there in place of standard pickles and you've got yourself one hell of a fiery backyard treat. More

Grilled Kale Salad With Warm Bacon Vinaigrette

Kale is one of the trendiest vegetables these days, but it's still possible to serve it in a surprising way: grilled. Smoky and with a touch of crunch, hearty lacinato leaves are a delightful, if unusual, vehicle for a vinaigrette made with crisped bacon, shallots, and apple cider vinegar. It's a killer side dish you'll want to nestle alongside your potato salad and hamburgers at your next BBQ. More
