Full Episode Guide
  • It is the song of the islands as Bobby Flay brings the flavors and spices of the Caribbean to the grill. He conjures up the warm breezes by searing a Coconut Marinated Pork Tenderloin, and topping it with a fresh and spicy herb sauce; then breaks out the hot and savory island seasonings for some lip-tingling Smoked Jerk Chicken Wings with a sweet and sour Honey-Tamarind Dipping Sauce. Since the Caribbean is also famous for its azure waters, we dive into some beautiful seafood by way of Bobby's tart and refreshing Ceviche with Serrano Chiles, Mango, Smoked Tomatoes & Crispy Plantain Chips. No trip to the beach would be complete without an icy glass of Tropical Sangria, it will get you ready for the limbo in no time.

  • Bobby Flay utilizes the crown jewels of the Pacific Northwest to create an unbelievable barbecue menu that would make the region proud. Fresh from the Pacific, Hot Smoked Salmon is served with a crisp, refreshing Salad of Apples, Dried Cherries, Hazelnuts and Apple Cider Vinaigrette. Next, Bobby steams gigantic, gorgeous Dungeness Crabs in a pick-me-up sauce with Ginger, Soy, Lime and Mirin. And it wouldn't be a Bobby Flay barbecue without succulent Burgers cooked on Cedar Planks and served with Grilled Walla Walla Onions and Mushrooms.

  • Bobby gets his groove on as he dazzles us with some Cuban barbecue classics with a twist. Cuban Pulled Pork Tacos with Guava Glaze and a Sour Orange Red Cabbage Jicama Slaw are just for starters! A beautiful Tirado de Mahi Mahi is center stage, but save room for his not-to-be-missed Cuban Skirt Steak with a Tomato Escabeche and Mango Steak Sauce.

  • Bobby Flay's inspired by the diverse cuisine of the Middle East in this flavorful barbecue. He's preparing Lamb Shawarma With a creamy Red Pepper-Walnut Tahini Sauce, Honey Glazed Grilled Fig Salad With Feta and Pistachios, Grilled Quail With Pomegranate BBQ Sauce and Tabouli and to drink, Apricot-Mint Sours.

  • No need to cry for Argentina in Bobby Flay's amazing Argentinean style barbecue. Perhaps nothing screams Argentina more than Grilled Skirt Steak With Green and Smokey Red Chimichurri Sauce. And to go along with the spice, Bobby grills up a Tomato, Red Onion and Rocket Salad With Fried Egg, Grilled Chorizo and Grilled Provoleto Crostini. Plus a Pisco Sour Wine Sangria Bobby style.

  • Classic Southern food is one of this country's most beloved regional cuisines, but a new style of cooking is rising out of Dixie, and Bobby Flay thinks it works beautifully on the hot grates! Light Smoked Trout Lettuce Wraps take us about as far from barbecue as you can get, topped with Sliced Carrots and a creamy Meyer Lemon Dressing. Then, a classic Southern cracker spread makes a surprising and tangy appearance on Chef Flay's juicy Pimento Cheese Bacon Burger. Next, Southern curry makes an appearance on his Curry-Rubbed Smoked Chicken Thighs with Sorghum-Chile Glaze. And finally, Bobby whips up a Sparkling Bourbon Lemonade, a heat-beater that just might unseat the Mint Julep as the go-to Southern cooler. It'll be delicious, y'all!

  • You might mistake Bobby Flay's backyard with a Mediterranean island when he's finished with this Greek inspired barbecue menu. His fresh and flavor infused dishes include Greek favorites like Gyros With Radish Tzatziki and Oregano Vinaigrette With Grilled Plum Tomatoes. Bobby makes culinary perfection look easy as he whips up Charcoal Grilled Shrimp and Kalamari With Grilled Lemons and Smoked Tomato-Black Olive Relish, and a Grilled Fingerling Potato Salad With Feta, Green Beans, Olives and Red Wine Vinaigrette.

  • Chef Bobby Flay shares his most versatile grilling techniques to make an incredible meal with whatever's freshest at the market. On the menu are his Sticky Glazed Chicken Thighs in Butter Lettuce and a Corn and Scallion Salad with a fresh herb dressing. Bobby's also using the grill for fresh peaches and topping them with an Arugula Pesto and thinly sliced Prosciutto. And with extra herbs on hand, Bobby mixes up a mint tea cocktail to drink!
