Sa­vory sum­mer grilling

Maryland Independent - - Front Page -

There’s not much that tastes bet­ter dur­ing the sum­mer than a meal hot off the grill. If you’re in the mood for a de­li­cious back­yard dish, try adding ver­sa­til­ity to your grilling game with a few sim­ple tips. • Try a new cook­ing method. If your usual prepa­ra­tion in­volves a ba­sic flame, you may be sur­prised by all the dif­fer­ent fla­vors you can evoke just by chang­ing the method. Whether you’re us­ing gas or char­coal, switch from stan­dard grilling to smok­ing over in­di­rect heat. You can also use sea­soned wood chips with most grilling meth­ods to build a com­pletely dif­fer­ent fla­vor pro­file. • Look for non-tra­di­tional ways to use your fa­vorite pro­teins. In­stead of the tra­di­tional steak or chicken on a kabob, you can cre­ate a whole new fla­vor ex­pe­ri­ence us­ing smoked sausage. For ex­am­ple, Eck­rich of­fers a va­ri­ety of smoked sausage fla­vors in tra­di­tional ropes and bun-length links, all with just the right blend of sea­son­ings for a rich, sa­vory taste. • Ex­plore new condi­ments and top­pings. Ketchup, mus­tard and rel­ish may be sta­ples at the condiment sta­tion, but there’s no rea­son you can’t add a lit­tle some­thing ex­tra. Grilled onions, mush­rooms and pep­pers are all sim­ple and de­li­cious ways to add fla­vor. Or try some­thing en­tirely new, like this sweet, tangy mar­malade made with ba­con and onions.
