Chili Garlic Chicken Skewers with Greek Yogurt Dip
With the right spices, marinade, and dip, chicken need not be bland and boring. Marinade 1 pound of boneless and skinless chunks of chicken breast in 1 tbsp. oil, ¼ tsp. salt, ¼ tsp. pepper, 2 tbsp. honey, and 3 tbsp. garlic paste for at least two hours. After marinating, skewer four to five chicken chunks on each skewer. Heat your grill to medium-high heat and add the chicken skewers, cooking each side for about 4 to 5 minutes. For the yogurt sauce, simply whisk together a cup of plain Greek yogurt, 2 tbsp. olive oil, 2 tbsp. snipped chives, 1 tbsp. honey, 1 lime (juiced), ¼ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. pepper.
Grilled Watermelon with Smoked Salt and Jalapeno Rings
You’re probably wondering whether you read that right…but yes, warm watermelon slices can be great in summer too—smoky and hot on the outside and totally cool and refreshing on the inside. The grill’s heat concentrates the watermelon’s flavor while the smoke balances its sweetness. Place watermelon triangles on the grill and sprinkle them with a pinch of smoked salt. Remember to only place salt on one side of the watermelon. Grill the watermelon slices on each side for 1-2 minutes or until grill marks start to form on their surface. Serve them with grilled jalapeno peppers, sliced into thin rings.

If you have one of the best BBQ smokers in Greenville, SC, then you can’t let summertime pass without cooking up smoked baby back ribs. Rub 2 racks of baby back ribs with the cut sides of a lemon and a spice mixture composed of ¼ cup brown sugar, paprika, 1 tbsp. chili powder, 2 tsp. cumin, 1 tsp. mustard powder, and 2 tbsp. of salt. Refrigerate the ribs for at least two hours or overnight, and take them out of the fridge 30 minutes before smoking. Heat your BBQ smoker to 250 degrees F and place the ribs on the cooler side of the grill. Spray the ribs with a mixture of 2tbsp. Worcestershire sauce, 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar, and 1 cup of apple juice every time you flip it over. Close the grill and let it smoke for an hour on each side.
