Watermelon. Pound cake. Pickles. Cheese. Donuts.
Who knew you could grill these yummy foods? We’ll try grilling, smoking, baking, and roasting practically any food, so we were entranced by the HouseBeautiful article, “13 Things You Didn’t Know You Could Grill.”
We scoured our grilling boards on Pinterest to find more fun things to grill. Give these recipes a try and let us know which ones you like best!
Smoke 1 quart of plain, full-fat yogurt over wood, mix with white miso and drizzle over grilled swordfish, roasted chicken, or lamb. Makes a delish veggie dip, too! (See full recipe at Saveur)
Shrimp cocktail is one of our favorite any-time appetizers, but we usually make it by adding a dollop of store-bought cocktail sauce to fresh, pre-cooked shrimp. This recipe sounds much more appetizing!
For this recipe, you’ll coat deveined shrimp with a concoction of garlic, cilantro, lime, red chile pepper flakes, chopped ginger and olive oil. Slide them on skewers and grill just until they are no longer translucent. (See full recipe at Mamma's Gotta Bake)
What could be better than a showstopping appetizer that takes only 1 minute to cook? These red grapes are tossed with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, red-chile flakes, and garlic cloves and cooked over glowing red coals. Serve them with grilled bread and a lump of burrata or fresh mozzarella cheese. (See full recipe at GQ Grill Guide)
Ice that has been smoked, melted, and refrozen as cubes makes a terrific conversation piece for summer parties. Find a Tupperware container and freeze a big ‘ol slab of ice. Transfer the ice into a perforated, disposable aluminum grill pan and place that pan over a second, unslotted pan. Smoke until done. How will you know when it’s done?

Grilled Apples Stuffed with Sage
This recipe makes our mouths water for Thanksgiving dinner. So we’re thankful for this recipe that features Washington’s most bountiful fruit and makes us feel all warm and fuzzy.
The author of the blog, Another Pint Please, writes: “After an hour on the grill, the apples really take on an interesting medley of taste. You get the savory smoky taste of sausage, followed by the sweetness of the maple syrup, surrounded by the tart hint of apple.”
The recipe is adapted from Steven Raichlen’s BBQ USA: 425 Fiery Recipes from All Across America. (At Rich’s, we stock several cookbooks by Steven Raichlen.)
These tasty muffins deliver a sweet, smoky flavor when baked on the grill over indirect heat. Perfect for dessert! (See full recipe at Epicurious)
