A Tale of Two Marinades
« on: July 23, 2015, 10:12:38 am »
First marinade is good for pork chops, pork tenderloin and so forth.  I cooked chops on the grill and thought it was great. 
6 pork chops
1/2 cup honey
6 Tablespoons soy sauce
3 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons minced garlic
Marinade for 5 + hours.

Second marinade is for chicken.  I also cooked the chicken on the grill.  This marinated 6 chicken thighs.  Be careful that the coals are not too hot.  The skin will burn.
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lime juice + zest of 2 limes
2 Tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
Marinade overnight to get the best flavor.

Hi Baker, you talk of coals, so do you use a Weber type bbq? I have a friend who had a fancy grill and went back to the Weber, said the grilling tastes better...

Jen, I am not a grilling expert.  I just have a garage sale grill that I paid $5 for.  It's square with a lid and legs.  I may grill 1-2 times a year at home.  The weather was great yesterday, so it sounded good.
