Week Two: Backyard BBQ’s Top 5 Recipes to Try This Weekend

By AMA Staff

Still figuring out what to grill this weekend?

We’ve got some suggestions.

Every week, we’re rounding up the most popular recipes posted, shared and liked on AMA’s Backyard BBQ, as well as a few recipes from our partners.


• AMA President Don Smitten got in on the Backyard BBQ action with this tasty recipe for Moroccan ginger-lemon skewers.

• Haven’t jumped on the bread-making bandwagon yet? Willy Grant’s cornbread on the grill will change your mind. (Scroll through the comments for her recipe.)

• We’re noticing more and more people making pizza on their barbecues. Head to this thread for several recipes, grilling tips, and where to find gluten-free dough (and other ingredients) in Edmonton and Calgary.

• Who doesn’t love beer-can chicken? Check out this spice beer chicken recipe. (P.S. Why not try using a selection from a local brewery, such as Edmonton’s Alley Kat or Calgary’s Trolley 5?)

• And here’s the perfect dish for a Sunday dinner: herb and mustard beef rotisserie roast with apple-onion salsa.

See ya next Thursday for more recipe ideas!
