Beef can be made even more mouth-watering when prepared with an African Smoke Rub, a Prairie Steak Rub, or a Matambre Marinade.

For those who love the enticing aroma of grilled Fish, try Spiced Red Snapper with Chermoula or Grilled Lobsters with two flavored butters. Vegetarian options include Caramelized Beet Tatin with Marinated Goat Cheese and Grilled Market Vegetable Salad with Herbed Toasts, while if you think the fun stops at your main dish, youâ€™re in for a treat! Recipes for Desserts feature a tempting Sozzled Apricot Bruschetta with Orange Liqueur Cream and Rocky Road Campfire Sâ€™mores with Ginger Sugar.
