Cooking Method - Grill
Ostrich is a very lean meat that comes from the leg, thigh and back of the bird and is cooked similar to beef. It should be cooked rare (145°F) to medium (155°F) otherwise it will become dry. This is also an entrée-size serving but could easily be served as an appetizer by placing the arugula atop the baguette slices and topping with ostrich slices and Bellycheer® Wow Chow. (Ostrich, and other non-traditional meat, is available from ExoticMeats.com.)
Here is a delicious combination of ingredients from the Southwest --pine nuts, chile, and lamb. For an authentic, smoky flavor, grill them over mesquite wood or charcoal covered with mesquite chips soaked in water.

Here's another classic from the post-war era.
Because this is my favorite barbecue sauce, the recipe makes much more than you will need for the three or four ribs from one roast. Simply divide the remaining sauce into 3/4 cup measurements and freeze until needed again. And because the ribs are already cooked, the time on the grill is very short. Serve with coleslaw and oven-baked french fries.
Remember this rule: the firmer the banana, the better it grills. Ripe bananas turn to mush, fall through the grill and embarrass the cook. You can start this dessert while eating the entree, and it will be ready when you are. You can also use aluminum foil over the grill rather than the aluminum pan, if you wish.
Here is a simple salmon recipe that’s quick to prepare but tastes great. You can literally whip it up while you are starting the grill. Feel free to flavor this with a little light smoke–say apple or other fruitwoods. Serve with a creamy rissoto, arugula, and tomato salad and a chilled white wine.
Chris Schlesinger, of the East Coast Grill in Cambridge, Massachusetts, sent us this recipe, which was published in an early issue of Chile Pepper magazine. The sharp spiciness of the chile combines easily with mellow sweetness of the mango to create a strong by not overpowering accompaniment for the creamy taste of the scallops. From the article Mango Madness!
Because scallops cook so quickly, they’re ideal for cold weather cooking. Try to get day boat or dry-packed scallops (scallops that haven’t been treated with sodium tripolyphosphate (STP) which causes the scallops to absorb water, increasing the weight and the price of the scallop). “Enhanced” scallops won’t sear properly due to the excess liquid.
Rich and Bunny Tuttle, K Cass BBQ: Rich and Bunny told us, “We have experimented with grilling all kinds of different pizzas, and this one is extremely delightful and healthy.”
A Mexican coctel de camarones tends to be a lot spicer than one traditionally served north of the border, and the shrimp is grilled rather than boiled, which adds a different flavor dimension. In a pinch, substitute a Mexican hot sauce like Cholula for the chile powder and the jalapeño chile, and the result will be equally good.
