Grilling. It doesn't get more American than that. I suppose one could grill an apple pie during a tailgate party at a baseball game. That would be pretty American. Nonetheless, the heat, the smoke and the seasoning of the grill all combine to provide incredible flavors.

This marinade utilizes two often overlooked ingredients to make your grilled meats pop, coffee and molasses.

This recipe can be used to marinate pork, beef or chicken also.
