Caption: Hey guys this week we're going where no . basics has gone before the great . outdoors i'm here in nashville tennessee . to take a look at america's real . favorite pastime grilling we're teaming. up with hayes hardware to help you . correct some common backyard blunders. and serve up some more exciting fiery . fare than the usual burgers and dogs . let's get down to basics . [music]. alright guess so let's start the day . with some grilled beef and vegetable. kebabs so we're gonna start by making a . lemon rosemary marinade this recipe. comes courtesy of america's test kitchen . we're going to start by roughly chopping . up a medium onion 2 tablespoons of . chopped fresh rosemary then peeling and . roughly chopping 6 medium garlic cloves . just chop them up a little bit we're . gonna put everything in a food processor . i'm also going to grate the zest from . one lemon and add the juice from the . lemon now we're going to add 1/3 of a . cup of beef broth plus 1/3 of a cup of . vegetable oil a few hefty pinches of . kosher salt a much less hefty pinch of . white sugar and many many twists of . freshly ground black pepper . then 3 heaping squeezes of tomato paste . or about 3 tablespoons we're now going . to process this for about a minute until . completely smooth and there you go . marinade now it's time to get our beef . and vegetables ready we're gonna start . with either chuck or sirloin tips that . we're going to cut into relatively . uniform sizes we want them to be about 2 . inches by 2 inches the more uniform the . better so they cook evenly. as for the vegetables we're going to. break them down into again relatively . evenly sized pieces i'm going to have . this zucchini lengthwise and then cut it . into 1-inch segments now there's a lot . of tips and tricks about how to core . your pepper but really the key is to cut. the head off and rip its heart out kali . ma . and then we're just gonna cut the . peppers into one to one and a half inch . pieces lastly we've got a large red . onion that we're going to cut in half . take out the core cut into wedges and . then cut each of those wedges into three . or four pieces so we've got nice 1 inch . wide chunks of red onion and now it's . time to marinate both the beef and the . vegetables we're going to add most of. the marinade maybe about 3/4 of it to . the beef mix it up good make sure that . every piece is covered in marinade and . we're going to add the remaining mixture . probably about a half a cup swath to the . vegetables give them a good toss cover . both let the beef marinate for 1 hour in . the fridge and the vegetables marinate . for 1 hour at room temperature 1 hour . later and it's time to skewer you . probably know how to do this i don't . think i need to instruct you but all you . really need to do is skewer the meat and . press it tightly against one another . make sure you don't out out get your . finger and with the vegetables just . alternate between each type of . vegetables so you get a nice pleasing . pattern going most people put both . meat and the vegetables on the same . skewer this doesn't work why not put . meat on one skewer and vegetables on . another this way they can cook at their . own desired rates we're gonna bring our . skewers over the grill open her up and . hmm how do i do this god hi i'm shannon . your local ace associate and i'm here to . help you get started with your grill . this particular grill is a weber genesis . e-330 interview to the light position . hit the igniter button and it'll start . right up also you'll see with the three . different knobs here you can heat . sections of the grill to different . temperatures for different foods that's . perfect because i need to cook the steak . over high heat and the vegetables over . me oh my god well . nashville truly is a magical place so . first we're gonna let this grill preheat . over high heat for 15 minutes lid closed . get it hot now that our girls preheated . i'm going to turn the left two burners . down to medium and keep the right burner. on hot and we're going to put the steak . on the right side of the grill and the . vegetables on the left we're gonna close . the lid and let these cook for six . minutes before flipping for the first . time they're gonna close it back up cook . for an additional six minutes for 12 . minutes. total before we check our meats . temperature i want to hit about 125 i'm . also going to take one of these kebabs . off first and leave the other ones on . for another couple minutes for anybody . who wants them a little bit more . well-done okay people who are wrong and . as for the vegetables we're gonna leave. those on for an additional five to six . minutes until they've got a really good . char on them and they're nice and soft . all right so let's get all these skewers . out on a tray nice and there you go . perfect kebabs easy fast delicious . alright so next up we're going to make a . grilled pork tenderloin again courtesy . of america's test kitchen we're making a . piquillo pepper and manchego stuffed . pork tenderloin let's start by making . our stuffing now making the stuffing is . very simple we just need to throw the . following items into a food processor. two garlic cloves peeled and roughly . chopped one slice of hearty white bread . in this case we didn't have any white. bread so a hot dog bun will do just fine . a whole jar of piquillo peppers patted . dry two ounces of manchego cheese . chopped up quarter cup of toasted pine . nuts a teaspoon of minced fresh thyme . and a good sprinkle of smoked paprika go . ahead and pulse that for . five six seven eight nine times until a . rough paste is formed at this point . we're going to season with salt and . pepper. process a few more times until we've got . a nice chunky stuffing and now it's time . to butterfly and stuff our pork . tenderloins. so to butterfly our pork tenderloin is . very easy we're just going to place some . cuts lengthwise along the side of the . pork tenderloin until we've almost hit . the other side and opened it up like a . book then we're going to cover both . tenderloins and plastic wrap and we're . just gonna pound one out we want to . pound them out to about a half inch . thickness and so they're nice even . rectangles it's best we can then once . they're pounded out we're gonna season . them before stuffing them nice hefty . sprinkles of kosher salt many good . twists of freshly ground black pepper . and about four teaspoons of dark brown . sugar that we're going to rub in the . meat make sure it's equally distributed . now it's time to stuff with both our . cheese and bread stuffing and some baby . spinach we're gonna start by spreading . half of the stuffing on each of the pork . tenderloins on one end of the long side . of the roast and topping that with some . baby spinach and then we're gonna roll . the whole darn thing up and as is the . case when doing a recipe for the first . time always have to so you can mess one . up and then do the second one correctly . both of these we're going to tie closed. with butchers twine again we're going to . do a terrible job on the first one and . then a much better job on the second one . you don't really need to do the full . truss you can just tie it off . using a simple square knot every inch . and a half to two inches or so to make . sure the whole thing stays closed and . then trim the excess string to make sure . that it's not hanging off and burning . and there you go all right so these guys . are ready for the grill let's take them . over to the gas grill and know jeez hey . andrew since you're going to be temping . these tenderloins why don't you use the . i grill 3 even though you scare the life . out of me you're awfully helpful why . thank you. the i girl 3 lets you monitor the . temperature of your food to the igrow . app on your mobile device it's super . easy to set up all you have to do is . pair it with your device via bluetooth . plug the probes into the thermometer and . insert them into your food set your . desired temperature in the app and it . will notify you when your food is ready . so this is perfect so i can monitor the . temperature of these roasts awesome . we do you okay now that shannon has . disappeared once again into the unknown. it's time to get these tenderloins to . grilling we need to make sure that the . stuffing of these roasts hits 165 . degrees because it is in contact with . raw meat this time we're going to use . what's called an indirect heat source. meaning we're going to turn the right . burner all the way to maximum and left . two burners all the way to low and . placed the roasts over the left side of . the grill so once we close lid they're . getting heated almost like in an oven. but they're also getting grill marks . we're gonna flip them about halfway . through cooking which should be about 30 . minutes or as soon as they register 165 . degrees fahrenheit internally which. we'll monitor on our phones because this . is 2018 these guys are fresh off the . grill so let's slice these babies up and . there you have it two pork tenderloins . one is beautiful on the outside but both . are beautiful on the inside just like . all of you so now we've got some . beautiful sausages and chicken wings. i feel like infusing some wood-fired . flavors so let's take them over to the . wood fire grill this thing looks pretty . easy let's just crank it on with whoa . what the what is this don't do that . is this shannon she bets it appear . behind you all but god shannon you're . haunting me with helpfulness . you're welcome andrew i want to make . sure you set up your trigger pro 22 . correctly on first use you need to run . the wood fire grill on high for 45 . minutes to make sure you burn off all . the oils that protect it from the . elements while it's shipped to your way . grilling with a trigger wood fire grill. is easier than you think since it uses . convection cooking instead of direct. heat it's somewhere to cooking in an . oven but provides a delicious smoky . flavor you can grill smoked roast baked . braised and barbeque all on the same . grill it's pretty awesome to get cooking . you just fill the hopper with pellets . turn it on and select the setting you . need it's so easy to use also included . with the trigger are these digital . probes that fit to the side of the unit . so you can monitor the temperature of . your food without having to open it and . lose the beautiful smoke and heat. building inside oh cool i can use these . to monitor the temperature of my sausage . i'm going to oh my god okay . just remember andy it's all cheap . special effects all right so i'm going . to arrange the chicken wings on the . bottom half of the smoker and the. sausage on the top rack i'm going to . close it up and let the sausages go . until they reach an internal temp of 165 . fahrenheit for the chicken i'm going to . leave them on for 30 minutes flipping . once right at the end i'm going to . slather them with barbecue sauce and . crank the heat up to high to get a nice . barbecue crust and there you have it . some simple chicken wings and sausages . elevated to a new level with the help of . smoke a big thanks to ace for providing . the grills and helping make this episode. happen we've got a lot of new exciting . things in store for the channel and they . would not be possible without great . partners like ace check me out next
