1
Eric Balfour
I'm such an L.A. boy, I love hanging out by the beach and throwing some steaks on the grill.
2
Terry Crews
Buffalo rib-eye steaks, on the grill, is my favorite meal, seriously. It has less fat, more vitamins and more protein than beef. It is wonderful. Look, it was what the Indians ate, and they were very healthy. It's very good meat.
3
Tom DeLonge
I will eat anything Mexican - a sombrero, hacienda... anything. They've perfected the combo of bread items and the grill.
4
Patrick Duffy
I do all the cooking in our family. I'm a utilitarian cook, rather than an adventurous one - I only have about 15 recipes in my repertoire that I rotate - but I love being able to go down to the river and catch a 30 lb. salmon, then grill it on the barbecue.
5
Bobby Flay
Don't underestimate the importance of having enough room to work. Grilling is much more relaxing when you are not trying to juggle a whole collection of plates and bowls as you do it. If your grill doesn't have enough workspace - and they almost never do - set up a table right next to your grill.
6
Bobby Flay
A grill is just a source of heat. Just like a stove, it is very user-friendly.
7
Bobby Flay
One thing you don't want to do as a host is be running around all evening. Do as much as you can ahead of time, so all you have to do is grill the main ingredients.
8
Bobby Flay
I love using gas grills because they are easier to heat and it's much easier to control the flames with a gas grill than with a charcoal fire. Grilling is not just about lighting a fire.
9
Takeru Kobayashi
I just grill chicken and make very simple cuisine.
10
Emeril Lagasse
Wrap fish fillets, sliced veggies, and other quick-cooking items inside foil packets with bundles of fresh herbs and throw them directly on the grill; the steam will release the herb's perfume and flavor anything contained inside the pouch.
