It's finally grilling season! Is anyone else as excited as I am about this? I've been busting out the grill almost every single night for dinner and I gotta tell you, that grilled charcoal flavor is what I've been missing since Labor Day. Chicken, vegetables, burgers, steaks, I've been grilling it ALL.

Recently though, I've been obsessed about perfecting dry rub ribs on the grill. I've baked them more times than I can count, but nothing gets that BBQ flavor packed into the ribs like a grill. These ribs are the best combination of spicy and smoky on the outside, with perfectly tender and juicy meat on the inside. Seriously, the meat practically melts in your mouth with every bite.

You'll have grilled up ribs in under an hour that'll curb all those BBQ cravings you've been having lately.

Heat up your grill to 350 to 400 degrees and rub the grill racks with olive oil. Remove the ribs from the plastic wrap and place directly on the grill. Cook for 40 minutes, turning occasionally, until crispy and cooked through.

Are you ready for Memorial Day?? I am tweaking my menu daily for the annual massive BBQ I host, and I was feeling a little stumped earlier this week. That is, until now. This grilled chili rubbed flank steak changed ev-er-y-thang for me once I made it. It's one of the simplest recipes I've ever created, but in terms of flavor, it's ridiculously complex. All of the flavors in the rub perfectly compliment the meat and that really good charred taste you get from the grill.

You can easily serve this bad boy as is or there are about a million other ideas you could try out. Throw it on a salad. Chop it up and add it to a grilled pizza. Serve it with tons of grilled veggies. You can even make some killer tacos or a Tex Mex inspired sandwich with this meat. The options are limitless and it'll take you less than 15 minutes of active cooking time to make it happen.
