BBQ Ideas

I've been invited to a BBQ this weekend that is Bring your own meat to share. What meats are there that I could bring that aren't the usual hamburgers, hotdogs or chicken? I want to be original.

Are we talking actual BBQ here or grilling? You have to consider how much time will be available to cook the meat you bring. A brisket will take several hours to bbq. A steak will take several minutes to grill...

For grilling:

I like thickly-sliced (1"-1.5") pork loin sprinkled with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.

If you want to marinade, try a Honey-Ginger-Soy-Lemon blend.

Be careful NOT to overcook. Grill as you would a regular steak that you're trying to get Medium-Rare to Medium.

i agree with the z about pork loin. hmm, or how about marinated pork tenderloins? try allenmi's recipe using a 50/50 mix of orange juice and balsamic vinegar, with a coupla crushed garlic cloves tossed in.

i'll try to remember to bring in a brazillian chicken marinade to post tomorrow.

how about shrimp skewers, with the shrimp deveined but the shells still intact, dusted with a rub like emeril's.

does it have to be meat?

how about double skewers of thick slices of sweet onions ans fennel, rubbed with evoo and s&p? or italian salad dressing marinated portabella mushrooms, grilled lightly on both side, then gorgonzola cheese melted into the caps.
