Backyard cooks, competition pit masters and BBQ enthusiasts often have an opinion on which method is better, and we frequently find that it’s fairly evenly divided. Both methods have their advantages, and both should be celebrated. Today we’ll cover the simple process of dry smoking ribs, so you can discover for yourself your opinion and perhaps your preference.
Traditional ceviche consists of raw seafood that is cured, or chemically cooked, in an acid. Of course, we like to put smoke on whatever we can get our hands on, so we’re giving our shrimp a smoke bath before it hits the citrus juices. In this recipe, when the shrimp comes off the smoker they will be fully cooked before being marinated in the acid, so the soaking time won’t be as long as if we were starting with raw shrimp. You could do the same with a cold smoke and longer marination. This method will also ease the minds of your friends who are wary of seafood that’s not cooked over a flame. You can think of ceviche as a seafood salsa, if you like. The ingredient possibilities are endless, so do some experimenting with different seafood, veggies and fruits.
Grilled broccoli is a favorite summer grilling dish for us. Broccoli loves the grill and is just about the easiest dish you could ever make on the grill. It’s just about the perfect thing to introduce grilling to kids.
