Unique Summer Grilling Ideas

Posted: Updated:

Tiered of burgers and brats on the grill, looking for something different to put on the BBQ this summer, well look no further. The experts at North Dakota State University Meat Lab are full of ideas.

NDSU Meat Lab Manager, Austen Germolus, says you shouldn't be afraid to explore different cooking techniques on your grill. "You can do a wide variety of fruits and vegetables on the grill, some people bake. There's a lot of fun things you can do on the grill, you just have to watch your temperature and pretend that you're cooking inside."

Friday Morning, Germolus and his Meat Lab team woke up early on the Valley Today to share some new and unique recipes:

Korean (Asian) Marinade: lamb, pork, chicken, turkey, beef

For 5 lbs. of meat

4 tbsp. minced garlic (fresh) jarred garlic is the easiest

2 tbsp. of runny honey

½ tsp. sesame oil

1 tbsp. of toasted sesame seed

½ tsp. white pepper

½ tsp. black pepper (fresh ground is best)

3 tbsp. hoisin sauce

4 tbsp. soy sauce

6 tbsp. rice vinegar

6 green onions chopped

Put all of the ingredients in a large plastic bag or container and marinade overnight or 6 – 8 hrs. if using 5 lbs. of meat.

Carolina Dry Rub
Ingredients: 2 tbsp salt
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp ground cumin
2 tbsp chili powder
2 tbsp black pepper
1 tsp cayenne pepper
¼ cup paprika
Instructions: Combine ingredients, mix well & liberally rub ribs, steaks, roasts, chops or lamb leg

Peach Sauce and dry seasoning

Split peaches and pull out the pit. 

Dry rub: (make a double batch but split)

1/4 cup of brown sugar

1 tsp. ground nutmeg

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. pumpkin spice 


4 tbsp. of butter

½ cup of brandy

1 cup of peach schnapps

Add liquids to the same amount of dry rub

Melt the butter in a pot over medium heat, add the brown sugar and spices and melt the sugar down until it starts to caramelize, then add the brandy and let the brandy cook down for a couple of minutes, then finish with the peach schnapps and let that cook down for a couple of minutes. More spice can be added for flavor.

Baste the sauce over the peaches while they grill. Peaches should be grilled open side down first for 5 min. then flipped and basted and cooked for an additional 5 min. or until soft. Make sure they do not burn but you do want them to caramelize. Add the peaches to ice cream and cover with sauce and enjoy!
