Grandpa's Favorite Grilling Recipes
When Grandpa fires up the grill, you know dinner is going to be delicious. Whether he's grilling up pork chops, the fresh catch of the day, or fresh veggies from his garden, summertime dinners from the grill prepared by Grandpa are hard to beat. Plus, there's plenty of memories to be made while keeping him company next to the grill.
These are Grandpa's favorite dishes to whip up on the grill all summer long.
Beer Can Chicken
Grandpa knows the best way to make use of a can of his favorite brew is to use it as the base for Beer Can Chicken. Plus, this recipe makes two whole chickens, so there will always be plenty for the whole family.
Whether he caught it himself or got it fresh from the market, grilling grouper is probably Grandpa's favorite way to prepare it.
Classic Grilled Corn on the Cob
When the grill is already hot, Grandpa knows that throwing the corn onto the grates is the best way to cook it.
Brined Grilled Chicken
The secret to keeping chicken from drying out on the grill is making sure to brine it just like Grandpa always does.
Grilled Okra-and-Pepper Skewers

It's hard to argue with the fact that pork chops cooked on the grill are superior to all other preparation methods, especially when they're cooked by Grandpa.
Chicken-and-Shrimp Kebabs with Summer Vegetables
When making kebabs, make sure to soak the skewers for 30 minutes before adding your meat and vegetables so they don't burn on the grill.
Sweet-And-Smoky Grilled Pork Tenderloins
A homemade rub is the only thing pork tenderloin needs before Grandpa tosses it on the grill.

Marinating chicken for at least 4 hours or up to 12 will ensure that each piece is packed with plenty of flavor.
