What are some really good and quick things to put on the grill. I need some more options than just burgers and brats.

Skewered food of any type are pretty easy to make actually.

But you don't want to make quick grilled foods. Chicken and Steak are some of the best meats you could ever put over an open flame.

...And now I crave steak. Do I want Porterhouse, New Your Strip, or just a huge Filet tomorrow? Hmm.

EVERYTHING!!! Sorry for shouting.

Pork tenderloin with a teriyaki glaze right before it's finished

Veggies - asparagus, mushrooms, onions, squash, zucchini, carrots - olive oil, salt, pepper, cayenne!
(use a veggie grill wok, looks like a square bowl with holes from Bed, Bath, Beyond or Home Depot)

Kabobs - chicken or steak, we use tri-tip from costco. Marinate with soy/teriyaki sauces, put slices of onion between

Jalapenos, stuffed with cheese, wrapped with bacon, sweet bbq sauce 1 minute before done. Yummy. But a real challenge to keep cheese in the Jalapeno. I put a cooked chicken "plug" in the top. Don't do too many at once or the fat from the bacon will start a bonfire...I know.

Steak and chicken breast of course!

Ribs, good bbq rub, low heat

Mix of potatoes, carrots, other root veggies. Olive oil, salt, pepper, rosemary or other spices. These take longer than the meat, start them first and stir often (use the veggie wok for these too). Smaller slices cook faster.

When I moved from TX to CA, I lived in an apartment for 3 months while looking for a house. I really struggled because I don't know how to cook without a grill! Then winter came and it was dark early and rainy often, so my hubby moved the grill under our patio umbrella and hung a light over it so I could cook dinner on the grill anyway.

Lots of people skewer shrimp and put pineapple slices between. I don't eat it so I don't make it, but it cooks in just a few minutes.

Brisket or Fajitas (skirt steak) ...frankly I'm tired of brisket. Fajita with the proper spices is really good!!

Ribeye, burgers (custom grind), and dogs. Well marinaded chicken and Mexican style carne asada also rank up there. My best friend's ex (who was a dirty vegetarian) liked portobello mushrooms brushed with olive oil & spices which had been lightly grilled under low heat.

Steam some ribs ahead of time. They only take a few minutes to finish on the Q with your fave BBQ sauce.

Salmon or some type of seafood, lots of veggies, nothing beats fresh veg on the grill, fruit with either nectarines, peaches, watermelon, pineapple, etc.
