• Andrew Zimmern’s 10 Best Recipes for the Grill


Recipes for a Memorial Day Barbecue

Just in time for the unofficial start of summer, here are 10 reasons to fire up that grill. This weekend, I’m mixing traditional Memorial Day fare like low-and-slow barbecued pulled pork with recipes inspired by my travels, such as the Cuban-style Creole chicken and grilled scallops with a Moroccan-inspired red pepper chutney. To accompany your meaty main course, try my chickpea salad, buttermilk onion rings or these easy homemade baked beans.
