Beer Can Chicken
David Codney of The Peninsula Beverly Hills is in the kitchen making a delicious beer can chicken with a homemade rub. Before getting started, make sure you purchase a dry chicken at the store, which means there is no added moisture. The drier the chicken, the crispier the skin when you cook it. After seasoning the chicken, he places it in the refrigerator overnight for the most flavor. He also makes a homemade white BBQ sauce and pairs the dish with a pickled watermelon salad.

Retro Pork Chops and Apples
Author of “Hungry Girl Simply 6,” Lisa Lillien is making a mouth-watering dish of pork chops with apples. Her latest cookbook is filled with recipes that have only six all-natural ingredients or fewer. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper and sear for three minutes a side to get them cooked all the way through. The best part is pork is such a lean meat once you trim the fat. She sauteés the apples and onions with whole grain mustard for texture and flavor, along with apple cider vinegar, which will help soften the onions. Then add to the top of pork chops and serve.
