Hold off on the sauce…………..

Wait to baste when grilling – Basting with sauce adds tremendous flavor, but barbecue sauces burn easily. Try basting in the last few minutes and once foods have been removed from the grill.

1 tablespoon finely chopped and seeded jalapeño pepper*
2 teaspoons lime juice

Directions
1 – Thaw shrimp according to package directions.

2 – Cook brown rice according to package directions, omitting salt; set aside.

3 – Meanwhile, thread shrimp onto 4 metal skewers, leaving 1/8-inch space between shrimp. In small bowl stir together barbecue sauce and ginger.

Healthy Pulled Pork Recipes
Find healthy, delicious pulled pork recipes including pulled pork sandwiches, crockpot pulled pork and spicy pulled pork. Healthier recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Pulled Pork with Caramelized Onions
Traditional pulled pork is barbecued, which gives it a smoky flavor. But the slow cooker happens to be the absolute easiest way to cook pulled pork—and you can get a hint of smoke by adding chipotle chile. Serve the pulled pork with potato salad, collard greens and grits. Or make it into a sandwich and serve it on a bun with coleslaw……………

Sous Vide Carnitas
Sous vide is a foolproof way to get perfectly tender carnitas every time. The precision cooking method cooks the meat slowly and keeps it at an even temperature so the meat never overcooks or dries out. Use this big-batch recipe to meal-prep—the carnitas are perfect for burrito bowls, tacos, breakfast skillets and more…………..

Five-Spice Pulled Pork Sandwiches
These pulled pork sandwiches are designed to travel to a tailgate or picnic. Plan ahead to prep the pulled pork in the slow cooker a day ahead. Tote the pork in an aluminum pan and reheat it on a portable grill…………

Healthy BBQ and Grilled Chicken Recipes
Find healthy, delicious BBQ and grilled chicken recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Butterflied Grilled Chicken with a Chile-Lime Rub
A quick and efficient way to cook a whole bird on the grill is to butterfly, or “spatchcock” it. When cooking a whole chicken on the grill, try searing the chicken first over direct heat then finish cooking over indirect heat (as instructed in this recipe). That way you avoid the all too common problem when grilling—chicken burned on the outside and raw in the center. For best flavor, let the chicken marinate in the rub overnight in the refrigerator. Serve with lime wedges and fresh salsa………….

Maple-Bourbon Chicken with Grilled Sweet Potatoes
The sweetness in this Maple-Bourbon Chicken recipe is from the real maple syrup and grilled sweet potatoes. Bacon is also included!……………..

Beer-Glazed Chicken with Grilled Vegetables
Need a new chicken dinner idea? Try this grilled chicken and vegetable dish from chef Rick Bayless. Grilling the chicken and summer vegetables is a no-brainer, but in colder months, you may wish to move indoors and roast the chicken, along with some root vegetables. Whatever the weather, it’s worth seeking out piloncillo for the beer glaze. This unrefined sugar used in Mexican cooking is made from evaporated cane juice. Its complex caramelized flavor balances any bitterness in the beer. Look for it in Latin markets and online………..
