Creativity on a BBQ or Grill

Ok so i need some ideas for a BBQ, in accordance with my previous thread, this is for a different day.
Now i can do a BBQ well, but i want to be more creative, instead of always cooking sausages, burgers, fish, etc.
If anybody had any ideas, it would be greatly appreciated :)

Thereís all kind of things you can do on the grill! Iím of the opinion that, if it can be cooked, it can be cooked on a grill!

A fun and unique thing to do is to get a grill wok. With that, you can stir fry veggies for a side dish, or beef and pepper strips for fajitas, or shrimp, or mushrooms, chunks of marinated meat, etc. I love doing fresh broccoli with a little EVOO and a splash of balsamic vinegar in it as well.

Meatloaf is outstanding on the grill with a little hickory smoke!

Shish kabobs are always fun and very tasty.

Butterflied Cornish Hen is a favorite of mine.

Bacon wrapped stuffed jalapeno peppers.

Sausage patties and biscuits.

Honey Mustard pork chops, pork roast, or pork loin.

Boneless chicken thighs stuffed (rolled and tied/pinned) with cornbread and sausage stuffing.

Potatoes, zucchini, egg plant, corn on the cob.

The sky is the limit! It would actually be easier to list the things you canít grill than to list all the things you can.

Why don't you start with what you have on hand or any favorite kinds of meat such as Poultry, Pork, Beef, or Seafood to help narrow down the options?

Beer- or Wine-can chicken: Beer Can Chicken
It's fabulous - crisp skin, juicy meat, very flavorful. We need to get another one going soon

Here are some grilled romaine heads (cut in half, olive oil, salt, pepper) and veggies (olive oil, lime, cumin, salt, pepper)



Do some off-set cooking. Heat source on one side food on the other. Add some Hickory chunks to the heat side and smoke a beer butt chicken. You'll need a rub which can seriously be made with the basic - kosher salt, brown sugar, paprika (I use smoked paprika), oregano, granulated garlic, and then start playing - you can use chili powder, adobo powder, curry powder, red curry paste, dry mustard, fennel seeds - just about anything will taste wonderful)!

How about a grilled pound cake? Weber has some of the best and most unique grilling recipes.
