The Sunset Grill

Grilling—casual, low-fuss, and delicious—is the ultimate modern cooking method, perfect for both easy backyard parties and weeknight meals. Here at Sunset, we’ve known about the pleasures of grilling since 1938, when we published our ¬first recipe collection for the grill. Ever since, we’ve been honing techniques for cooking and entertaining with the method’s distinctive flavors and flair. When you’re ready to fire up the coals this grilling season, we give you THE SUNSET GRILL, 125 Tasty Recipes for Casual Get-Togethers and Weeknight Cookouts by The Editors of Sunset Magazine (Sunset Books; March 2008; $21.95/softcover; ISBN-10: 0-376-02722-3).

THE SUNSET GRILL is filled with mouth-watering recipes that are both easy and delicious. Break away from the grill standard fare, and explore the taste sensations beyond burgers and grilled chicken with bottled sauce! Don’t take a chance at the grill…trust Sunset to take the guesswork out of firing up the coals (or turning on the gas). These recipes are tested, trusted and terrific. Full-color photographs, and grilling how-to’s will have you going from flame to plate in no time.

THE SUNSET GRILL is full of new twists on old classics and new dishes, sides, and libations destined to be classics! Some of our favorites include:

Chipotle Pepper Rub for Pork & Beef
Roasted Beet Salad with Oranges and Queso Freso
Grilled Artichokes with Green Olive Dip

The book is chock-full of great ideas for entertaining – easily and without the kitchen mess! Some themes to consider include:

- Father’s Day (why should he stand over the grill? Make him a Pimm’s Cup and grab the tongs)
- Mother’s Day (Dad’s got this covered)
- Easter (substitute the traditional ham with our Chipotle Pork Roast)
- Cinco de Mayo (complete menu with entertaining tips)
- Family and friends get-togethers
- Memorial Day (what would that be without a grill, and maybe some Orange-Soy Skirt Steaks?)

- Or any night of the week…

Fire up the grill and toss out your old standbys… THE SUNSET GRILL makes every night a grilling adventure.
