At long last spring has sprung and for us that means one thing: time to break out the grills. Some of our favorite spring recipes are great for the grill, which keeps us out of the kitchen and enjoying the longer hours of daylight.
Take full advantage of the nice weather with a few of our favorite spring grilling recipes.
Glazed Baby Back Ribs
Spring is the perfect time to start perfecting your smoking recipes in time for summer, and where better to start with this twist on the classic baby back rib recipe?
Tuffy’s take on ribs comes with a beautiful sauce that contains molasses and cherry preserve to give you a BBQ topping that you won’t forget in a hurry!
Grilled Pork Tenderloin & Stone Fruit Salad
I usually prefer to smoke pork tenderloin, but this grilled pork dish offers a triple hit of the fruit with an apricot preserve glaze for the tenderloin plus a grilled apricot and watercress salad with an apricot-spiked vinaigrette.
Serve with a chilled beer, or Chardonnay for you fancy types, both of which will harmonize beautifully with the smoky-sweetness of grilled apricots.
Spiced Leg of Lamb with Herb Butter
This beautiful cut of meat is marinated overnight in a garlicky herb-based paste.

Western Barbecue Burgers
Are you ready to fire up the grill and crank out a masterpiece of flavor with the classic Western BBQ burger?
This cheeseburger recipe worships the trinity of “holy” Swiss cheese, goat cheese and Parmesan‐Reggiano laid on a bed of bittersweet basil will have them praising the grilling gods of which you will be their most adored.
Sicilian Grill-Roasted Chicken
Forget about small and cumbersome chicken pieces that tend to burn on the outside and under cook on the outside.
You can grill these two chickens— flavored (Sicilian-style) with lemon, parsley, and garlic—whole. So tender and juicy with a nice caramelized crust, they will become a family, if not, neighborhood favorite.
Grilled Eggplant Parmesan
The classic winter casserole gets reinvented as a smoky crowd-pleasing Grilled Spring Recipes vegetarian dish! There is nothing quite like grilled eggplant with succulent melted mozzarella and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese!
Cajun Honey Butter Grilled Salmon
Certainly one of our favorite recipes for Spring. If you’re not familiar with cedar plank salmon, it’s time to get familiar with this simple yet ancient cooking technique.
Grilling fresh fish on a wood cedar plank, and other appropriate wood species creates the difference between a mediocre cookout and an incredible backyard cooking memory.
The three keys to the recipe are the choice of fish to be grilled, the quality of the cedar plank and the ancient American Indian art of wood plank cooking.
