BBQ-cooked Corn on the Cob Wednesday, Jun 20 2012 

I grew up eating a lot of fresh corn on the cob! Nothing quite like it, YUM! Thankfully, my boys and husband also love it. 🙂  Usually, I peel them, then boil them for approximately 20 minutes. However, we’ve gotten into grilling it (in the peel) and it is so easy and delicious this way!!! Seems like it keeps more of its yummy taste. It’s now my preferred way of cooking/eating it!

BBQ-cooked Corn on the Cob

Soak ears of corn, with the husk on, in cold water for one hour.

Place on medium heat on the BBQ. Turn or roll the ears occasionally and cook for around 15 minutes. The peal will get dry, and crispy, and a bit burnt, but not the corn! Use a fork to check doneness. Kernels are soft when fully cooked.

Peel back the husk and use as a “handle”, or take it off completely, and you’ve got yourself a yummy supper side dish. 🙂 We like to spread a bit of butter and sprinkle a bit of salt on ours.

BBQ-baked Potatoes Wednesday, Jun 13 2012 

My sister shared this recipe with me a few years ago, and I love making these in the spring and summer! Yummy recipes to go along with steaks, chicken, or sausages!

BBQ-baked Potatoes

3 potatoes, slice 1/4″ thick
1 small onion, sliced
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 Tbsp parmesan
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp parsley
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp pepper

Mix together in large bowl. Double wrap in foil twice with Pam in the bottom.* Cook on the BBQ on medium heat 30-35 minutes, until potatoes are tender.

*I like to wrap them in individual-sized portions. Then each person can unwrap their own serving!

BBQ-baked Chicken Packets Wednesday, Jun 6 2012 

This is a great recipe! (Well, no specific amounts… but a yummy general idea!) You can bake it in the oven, or on the BBQ!  It’s individually packaged, which is great for having company over. 🙂 Makes for tender chicken, and yummy supper!

Boneless chicken breasts

Seasoning (options: salt, pepper, garlic plus, seasoning salt, etc)

Place boneless chicken breasts on top of 12″ square aluminium foil papers. Sprinkle with seasoning. Top with onions, mushrooms, and carrots. Wrap each packet tightly.

Bake on medium heat on the BBQ for 30-45 minutes, until juice coming out of chicken is no longer pink. (Or bake in the oven at 400F for 30-45 minutes.)
