4th of July Grilling Recipes

Last week we asked our Facebook followers to share with us their favorite BBQ recipes. We then asked everyone to like the recipes they thought sounded the yummiest. The top 3 ended up on our P1 grill this week!

First up is the most “liked” recipe.

Nerissa B.’s Sweet (literally) and Simple- Cinnamon & Brown Sugar Glazed Pineapple and boy was it sure sweetly simple!


♦ 1 cup brown sugar

♦ 1 tbs cinnamon

♦ 1 fresh pineapple


Cut Pineapple into spears, and roll generously in brown sugar and cinnamon. Grill over flames until warm and glazed over.

Randy J.’s delicious Corn on the Cobb recipe!


♦ Dehusked Corn on the Cobb

♦ Mayonnaise

♦ Salt and Pepper

♦ Parmesan Cheese

♦ Louisiana Hot Sauce

♦ Foil


After husking the corn, smother it with mayonnaise, season with salt and pepper, sprinkle on a good amount of Parmesan cheese, and finish with a final coat of Louisiana Hot Sauce! Wrap in foil and throw it on the grill for about 15 minutes, turning after 10 minutes or so.

Our last recipe was actually submitted by yours truly! This is something that makes a debut on my grill on at least a monthly basis. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Grilled Pork Tenderloin With Gingered Jezebel Sauce


Marinade and Meat:

♦ 1/2 cup light soy sauce

♦ 2 tablespoons firmly packed dark brown sugar

♦ 2 green onions, chopped

♦ 2 garlic cloves, sliced

♦ 2 tablespoons sherry wine (optional)

♦ Fresh rosemary (optional but highly recommended. I used about 1-2 tablespoons)

♦ 3 lbs pork tenderloin

Want a shortcut? Buy the pre-marinated garlic and lemon pork tenderloin!

Jezebel Sauce:

♦ 2/3 cup pineapple preserves (you can also use apricot jelly)

♦ 1/3 cup apple jelly

♦ 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish

♦ 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger


1. For the marinade, combine the soy sauce, brown sugar, onions, sherry, garlic and rosemary in a shallow dish or a zip-lock bag.

2. Add the pork and marinate it in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes.

3. For the sauce, while the pork is marinating microwave the preserves and jelly until melted, or melt them over low heat in a saucepan.

4. Stir in the horseradish and ginger.

5. Remove the meat from the refrigerator and discard the marinade.

6. Grill the pork with the grill lid closed over medium high heat (350 to 400 degrees) for 20-25 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 155 degrees.

7. Turn once, basting with 1/2 cup of the sauce.

8. Grill for another 5 to 10 minutes or until the center temperature reaches 160 degrees.

9. Slice and serve with the remaining sauce and fresh rosemary.

These 3 recipes actually complimented each other very nicely. They were all DELICIOUS and a real treat to eat, especially the glazed pineapple!

I was having such a wonderful time grilling your favorite recipes, that I decided to make a dessert up while we were grocery shopping. I wanted to make an easy and patriotic dessert that would be perfect on a hot summer day. Here is what I came up with!

Easy Patriotic 4th of July Dessert 

Purchase 1 strawberry angel food cake, raspberries, blueberries and 1 package of vanilla whipped cream frosting. Put berries in the freezer for about an hour prior to preparing.

Frost the entire cake, including the middle. Then fill the middle of the cake with berries and also sprinkle them all around. Or you can be creative and make patterns, designs and shapes with the fruit.

Enjoy and try not to eat the entire cake yourself!

Thank you so much to everyone who submitted their favorite BBQ recipes. It was fun to read them all and be able to grill up a few! We plan on creating a P1 BBQ cookbook this month in honor of National Outdoor Month with all the recipes submitted. Keep an eye on our blog for more information on that and also let us know in the comments which one of these recipes you are going to or have already tried out!
