When I think of BBQ I think of Stubb’s.
Some of my favorite recipes are the;
STUBB’S SPICY SHRIMP KABOBS
1 lbs. large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 ½ cups pineapple chunks (preferably fresh)
1 red bell pepper, cut into 1 inch squares
½ cup Stubb’s Pork Marinade (or more if desired)
8 wooden or metal skewers
If using wood skewers, soak in water for at least 15 minutes. Thread shrimp, pineapple, and red bell pepper in an alternating pattern onto skewers.
Prepare your grill for direct high heat cooking. Oil the grates and place the skewers over the heat. Grill for 5-10 minutes, flipping often until the shrimp are pink and cooked through. Baste the skewers with Stubb’s Pork Marinade every time you flip.
NOTE: To make the dish less spicy, baste less often.
SWEET HAWAIIAN MINI BURGERS
1 pound ground beef (95% lean)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
4 canned pineapple slices
12 Hawaiian sweet or small whole wheat dinner rolls, split
1/4 cup Stubb’s Sticky Sweet bbq Sauce
1/4 cup pineapple preserves
1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
Combine ground beef and Worcestershire sauce in medium bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into twelve 1/2-inch thick mini patties. Set aside.
Combine sauce ingredients in small saucepan; bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Remove from heat.
Place pineapple slices on rack in broiler pan; brush with sauce. Place pan in oven so surface of pineapple is 3 to 4 inches from heat. Broil 4 minutes, turning once and brushing with sauce. Remove pineapple, keep warm.
Place patties on rack in broiler pan so surface of beef is 3 to 4 inches from heat. Broil 7 to 8 minutes for medium (160°F) doneness, until beef is not pink in center and juices show no pink color, turning once and brushing burgers with remaining sauce after turning.
Cut each pineapple slice into thirds. Line bottom of each roll with lettuce, top with burger, then with pineapple piece. Close sandwiches. Makes 4 servings.
Cook’s Tip: Cook’s Tip: Other fun and flavorful toppers could include tomato slices, cucumber slices, red bell pepper strips and shredded carrots.

STUBB’S COWBOY BURGER
2.5 lbs ground beef
1/4 cup Stubb’s Smokey Mesquite Bar-B-Q Sauce
2 Tbsp. Stubb’s Beef Marinade
1/4 tsp. Stubb’s Mesquite Liquid Smoke (optional)
1 tsp Stubb’s Beef Rub
1 large yellow onion, cut into slices
Shredded cheddar cheese
Bacon slices, cooked crisp
Onion Rolls or Hamburger Buns
Toppings of your choice
In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, Bar-B-Q sauce, Stubb’s Beef Marinade, liquid smoke (optional) and Stubb’s Beef Spice Rub. Use your hands to mix well. Once combined, separate the mixture to make six patties. Make a slight indent with your thumb in middle of each patty to keep it from swelling while on the grill.
Prepare your grill for direct medium-heat cooking. Lightly oil the grates and place your burger on the grill, indent side up. Cook burgers for 12-14 minutes or until preferred doneness (160°F) turning once during cooking. While burgers are cooking, add the onion slices to the grill and cook until lightly charred and soft, turning once. Also toast the buns.
To serve, top burgers with Bar-B-Q sauce, bacon, grilled onion and shredded cheese. Add additional toppings to your liking.
TIP: To cook the bacon for this burger, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lay bacon on top. Cook in a preheated oven at 375°F for 15-20 minutes. Transfer the bacon to a paper towel lined plate to cool.
