The following recipes from The Jim Loyd's Meats and Casseroles Cookbook did not appear in the open line bulletins.


Outdoor cooking recipes are usually included in the meat and meat dish chapters, perhaps denying them an identity of their own. This should not be, according to the devoted followers of the art of turning and burning over charcoal, gas, wood and even electric fires. Outdoor cooking is in a class by itself, echoes the perfectionist capable of transforming a lowly cut of meat into a smoked morsel of epicurean qualities. A lot of help for the novice is now available. Appliance manufacturers, meat producers and anybody else who likes to experiment over an outdoor grill or open fire, are offering recipes that are pretty easy to follow. Some of the recipes in this chapter are products of National "Cook Off" Contests conducted all over the country, promoted by Beef, Pork and Poultry Producers. And a special Thank You to Gas Lamp Sales, Incorporated, in Cedar Rapids for their gracious assistance in compiling this chapter. They are representatives of the Charmglow Gas Grill Company and are always demonstrating their product by using some of their favorite recipes to show their customers how easy it is to go to it with gas. All these recipes are "tried and true" by somebody somewhere, who could be the next Cookout King, but for the moment, is content with sharing a recipe that might get somebody else excited about one of their favorite activities ... outdoor cooking.



4 pounds 1½ inch boneless sirloin steak
4 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper, coarsely ground

Press pepper into both sides of steak. Let stand at room temperature an hour before it is to be served. Cook on medium to high heat 15 to 20 minutes for a rare steak. Salt and turn and cook 8 to 10 minutes longer. Salt second side. Yields six to eight servings. Serve on hot platter.


Have the butcher bone the meat and prepare the rolled roast. Ribs of beef are the most popular for rolled roasts, however, sirloin tips and pork loins make excellent rolled roasts. The roast should have only a thin layer of fat oil the outside because excessive fats can cause flare up. The roast should be tied with heavy twine at about one inch intervals. Ask the butcher to season the meat with your favorite seasoning salt before he rolls the meat or season to your own taste yourself. Place roast on the rotisserie and be sure that the spit. passes through the center of roast. Always use a thermometer when barbecuing a roast to obtain the exact degree of doneness that you prefer. Be sure thermometer is inserted parallel with the spit. Thermometer should be inserted close to the center of roast, but must not touch the spit of the rotisserie. Allow roast to rest on the cutting board ten to twenty minutes before cutting, and juices will then be distributed more evenly throughout the roast. About ½ pound per serving is generally sufficient. A minimum size of 4 pounds is considered best for barbecuing rolled roasts. Start roast over high heat the first five minutes. Then adjust beat to medium for cooking. Watch for any flare up that may cause meat, to burn. 140° is rare (18 to 20 minutes per pound), 160° is medium (20 to 22 minutes per pound) and 170° is well done (22 to 24 minutes per pound).


4 to 6 pound beef tenderloin
20 fresh mushroom caps
4 strips of bacon (optional)
Season to Taste

Trim fat from surface of tenderloin. Secure meat on spit. Place on rotisserie attachment. Place foil drip pan under meat and insert meat thermometer in thickest portion of the coast. After cooking over high heat for about 10 minutes (closing hood if so equipped), reduce heat to medium high. If meat appears to be drying out, stop the spit and fasten several strips of bacon to the roast with toothpicks or skewers. Be sure not to let the bacon burn. When the meat thermometer reaches 140°, your roast should be done. Don't overcook this one. Test the thickest part with a sharp knife. The center should be rare and the outer portions at either end medium to well done. Total cooking time about 45 minutes. To serve carve ½ inch slices across the grain. While the meat is cooking, place the mushroom caps liberally covered with butter, in heavy duty foil. Seal well. Place package at edge of cooking area on grill for about 15 to 20 minutes or until done. After slicing tenderloin steak, spoon mushroom caps over each steak before serving.

Try boneless roasts fresh ham, loin or Boston Butt.

All cured pork processed under federal meat inspection has received some cooking and therefore requires less cooking time than the same cuts of fresh pork. Fully cooked cured pork needs only to be heated through. Smoked ham, bone in, count on 2 or 3 servings per pound. Without bone, count on 3 to 4 serving per pound. Smoked, boneless shoulder butt for spit cookery, count on 3 to 4 servings per pound, Smoked picnic shoulder, bone in, count on 3 to 4 servings per pound. Smoked ham slice, center cut, count on 3 to 4 servings per pound. Get fully cooked, It takes less time. Buy 1 inch thick. Cut fat edge through connective tissue to prevent curling. Smoked pork chops, allow 1 to 2 per person.


A tour of Hawaii has to produce a secret desire to produce your
own Luau, complete with the pig in the pit. In 1962, Farm Journal featured an article by Mrs. Leland Wenzel in Kent, Illinois with directions so complete and authentic that it was also used by Iowa State University in one of it's Pamphlets on Barbecuing. Even with these excellent instructions, you have to have more than a little nerve to tackle a project of this size. But, if something goes wrong with the pig in the pit, you can always just cover it up. You will need:

WHOLE YOUNG PIG: A white one, dressed and shaved. The locker man did this even though he usually skins them.
ROCK LINED PIT: Dug ahead of time.
ROUND SMOOTH ROCK: For pit or steam bed, sun dried a week before using them.
HARD WOOD: Three bushels or more.
GREEN CORN STALKS AND LEAVES: Unless you have the ti leaves or palm tree leaves native. to Hawaii.
BIG TONGS: For handling hot rocks.
CHICKEN WIRE FENCING: Enough to encircle the pig.
TWO BALING HOOKS: To carry the roast pig.
CANVAS: Large enough to cover the pig.
1. Figure 85 pound live pig to feed from 45 to 55 people.
2. Dig a hole 2½ to 3 feet deep at center with a diameter of 5 to 7 feet, depending on the size of the pig. Line with rocks.
3. Stack wood in lined pit in tent like fashion. Light fire. Additional small round rocks should he placed in fire to be heated.
4. As fire bums down, wet the burlap and prepare pig. Salt, pepper, onion salt should be rubbed inside the cavity of the pig. Place pig on chicken wire. Under the legs, make slits big enough to insert round heated rocks. When fire has burned down and rocks are very hot use tongs to fill the abdominal cavity and slits, in legs with hot rocks. Tie front legs together, then back legs. Wrap pig in wire, fastening well, so it can be lifted.
5. Completely cover ashes and rocks with corn stalks and leaves. Lower pig right onto the leaves. Cover it generously on top with more leaves.
6. Place wet burlap bags over leaves to hold the heat and steam the pig,
7. Cover with large canvas. Shovel dirt or gravel over canvas to keep steam in.
8. Cooking time starts now. 2 hours for 25 pound pig, 2½ hours for 50 pound pig and 4 hours for any heavier. When in doubt, leave it in the pit a bit longer. Pig will not hum as it is cooked by steam.
9. To uncover, remove dirt or gravel, canvas, burlap and covering leaves. Lift the wire wrapped pig and carry with hooks. Remove wire. You are now ready to serve. Servers in Hawaii dip their hands in cold water frequently as they pull pork apart for individual servings.
10. After pork, called Kalua Pig in Hawaii, has been enjoyed by all and your Luau is a big success, face in the direction of Kent, Illinois and in unison, say, "Aloha, Mrs. Wenzel".

Keep turning ears frequently, Cook 15 to 20 minutes, or till husks are dry and browned. Corn will look sun tanned. For browner, sweeter corn, continue roasting it to suit your own taste. Dunking ears in a pail of water occasionally will keep the kernels moist and tender. To serve, break off husks. Now, on with plenty of butter, salt and pepper. If desired, corn may be husked, brushed with melted butter and sprinkled with salt and pepper. Wrap each ear securely in heavy aluminum foil. Roast on hot grill 20 to 40 minutes. Turn about every 10 minutes.
