BBQ Classics for BBQ Month

5-15-2016

It’s National Barbecue Month, and that means it’s time to fire up that grill at the campsite. These delicious and classic barbecue recipes, including sweet cola ribs and chipotle crusted pork tenderloin, are guaranteed to add a little more flavor to your campground cookouts.

Sweet Cola Ribs

What you’ll need:

  • 2 slabs baby-back ribs sliced into cocktail size portions
  • 2 bottles of your favorite barbecue sauce
  • 3 1-liter bottles of Coca Cola

Grilling instructions:

  1. Fill a large roasting pan (big enough for the ribs) with 1 1/2 bottles of Coca Cola. Submerge the ribs in the Coca Cola and refrigerate for one night.
  2. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Remove the ribs from the pan and clean it, then fill it with Coca Cola again.
  3. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  4. Once the grill is hot, cook the ribs on it. Turn them often and dip them back into the cola each time. This should apply a layer of sugar to the ribs.
  5. When the ribs are nearly finished cooking (roughly 30 minutes), take them off the grill and fill a clean roasting pan with the barbecue sauce. Cut the ribs into individual portions and submerge them in the sauce.
  6. Bake them in the sauce for 1 hour, remove and serve.

Chipotle Crusted Pork Tenderloin

What you’ll need:

  • 2 pork tenderloins (3/4 pound each)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons chipotle chile powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

Grilling instructions:

  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Combine the dry ingredients in a large resealable plastic bag. Place the tenderloins in the bag and shake until coated. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  3. Oil the grill lightly and place the meat on the oiled grate. Cook the tenderloins for 20 minutes, turning every 5 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.

Grill Prime Rib at the Campsite

4-26-2016

You don’t need an elaborate RV kitchen to enjoy first-class meals at the campsite. In fact, many mouthwatering meats taste even better when cooked on the grill. This recipe for the tastiest, grilled prime rib entree will easily make you forget about your kitchen back home.

Grilled Prime Rib

What you’ll need:

  • 3 prime rib steaks (each roughly 2.5 pounds and 2-inches thick)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (divided)
  • 2 heads garlic cloves (peeled)
  • 2 lemons
  • 2 sprigs rosemary

Grilling instructions: 

  1. Preheat the grill and remove the steaks from the refrigerator. Allow the steaks to reach room temperature.
  2. Season the steaks heavily on both sides with salt and pepper. Press the seasonings into the steaks.
  3. Make a garlic paste by trimming the stems off of the cloves. Place a skillet on medium heat and add 4 tablespoons oil. Add the garlic and simmer before reducing the heat to low. Strip the leaves off of the rosemary sprigs and chop them until you have 2 tablespoons.
  4. Add the rosemary to the garlic and continue cooking until the garlic cloves are golden brown (roughly 10 minutes). Toss occasionally.
  5. Remove the garlic and mash it into a paste. Mix the mashed garlic back together with the oil and rosemary.
  6. Place the steaks on the preheated grill and cook until they’re browned on both sides. This should take about 5 minutes on the first side and 3 minutes on the other.
  7. Cut two lemons in half, then cut the ends off. Brush them with olive oil and season them with salt and pepper. Place the lemons on the grill.
  8. Smear 2 tablespoons of paste over one side of each steak. Move the steaks to the grill rack.
  9. Allow the steaks to finish cooking on the cool side of the grill with the lid closed for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove and let them rest for 10 minutes. Cut each steak into 1-inch slices and serve.
