1. Texas-Style Flounder


Get a mixing bowl and combine minced onions, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, lemon pepper, kosher salt, smoked paprika and cumin. Thaw the flounder for 30 minutes before applying the rub. Gently rub spices onto the fish and then set aside for a few minutes. Grill for about 5 to 6 minutes on each side. Flip the fish steaks once and let cook until the internal temp reaches 135 degrees Fahrenheit.


2. Texas Barbecue Chicken


Cut your chicken into quarters then brush them with vegetable oil. Afterward, season with pepper flakes, thyme, salt and pepper on all sides. Set them aside. Smoke the chicken with hickory wood pellets for about 30 minutes tops. Start basting with barbecue sauce while turning the chicken occasionally to avoid burning. Once cooked according to your preferred doneness, transfer to a platter and serve with your choice of side dish.


3. Grilled Texas-Style Beef Ribs


Trim your beef ribs of fat. Combine salt and pepper together then rub it onto the meat. Grill the ribs for about 1 ¼ hours or until tender. For the sauce, get a saucepan and combine chili powder, onion, chili peppers, honey, dry mustard, catsup and garlic. Let the ingredients cook over low heat for about 10 minutes. Brush the sauce over the ribs until cooked. Serve with the remaining sauce.


4. Texas-Style Smoked Brisket


Rinse the brisket and then dry it with paper towels. In a bowl, combine some chili powder, salt, pepper, sugar and cumin. Stir the ingredients thoroughly. Rub the mixture onto the meat then wrap the brisket in plastic. Put in the fridge and leave it there for about 4 to 8 hours. Smoke with your choice of wood until the meat is cooked according to your preferred doneness. For the complete roasting guide, read our article.


5. Texas-Style Grilled Pork Chops

Stir the ingredients thoroughly and then set aside about half a cup of this marinade. Put your pork chops in z Ziplock and then add the marinade. Leave in the fridge for about 4 hours then thaw for 30 minutes before grilling.  Grill the pork chops until pink while basting and turning.
