Check out the three recipes below from The Deen Bros. Get Fired Up and leave a comment on this blog telling us which one you absolutely cannot live without this summer...





Jamie and Bobby Deen grew up in Georgia- first in Albany and then in Savannah- and, like many Southerners, they have always considered cooking and food a big part of their lives.  When their mother, Paula Deen, started a sandwich delivery business in 1989, the boys took charge of deliveries.  As the business grew into The Lady restaurant, they continued to help.  Then, in 1996, the trio opened The Lady & Sons Restaurant to resounding success.  They haven't looked back since.  

Melissa Clark has written for The New York Times, Food & Wine, Travel & Leisure, and Real Simple and has authored or co-authored thirty books.

I had tried some of their recipes from their magazine and they all worked. But me being me I always make small changes to fit my needs. I have not seen the book nor did I know they had one on the market. DID I WIN YET???

Mexican Corn on the Cob with Mayo, Lime & Grated Cheese - are you kidding? THIS is a MUST HAVE! Corn is a summer staple. On the grill it is the PERFECT summer food. It is easy to grow and fresh is the best...this recipe is almost a meal in and of itself.

Love me some corn on the cob...and with mayo on it...FORGET IT!!! Yummy! The Dean brother's learned from the best, their Mom, Ms. Paula Dean! I tried a similar recipe that Paula showed a couple of years ago, I was a little hesitant because I am not a big fan of mayo, but gave it a shot and won't ever go back. I've even shared the recipe with my family and that's the way they cook their corn on the cob now too! I love the little twist of putting the citrus of the lime on it...I will be making this recipe soon! XO Jen

I eat all three of these!! For a seafood dish who doesn't love clams and mussels!! Then a classic beer can chicken, you can never go wrong!!! The corn on the cob with lime,mayo, and cheese is perfect!!

Hands down I vote for the Beer Can Chicken. I have been making this for quite a few years now but not with these spices:) Definately kicks it up a notch. Oh and lets not forget how unbelievably moist this chicken is. Hopefully next time I use this recipe there will be leftovers so I can add some to my lettuce salad:) Awesome recipe!!! I have a funny feeling if your mom made this recipe the olive oil would be replaced with butter:)

The mexican corn! It leaves the corn moist and delicious and putting it on the grill saves time washing pots and pans and leaves more time for summer fun!

The BEER CAN CHICKEN with Sweet & Spicy Picked Vidalia Onions would be great... Chicken, i would say is already an all-time favorite all around the world, but with this new rendition and flavor, the Beer Can Chicken would surely delight everyone. In addition, chicken meals are versatile... it can be served as a main course and its leftover are still great as fillings for sandwich or as ingredient in salad preparations. The Beer Can Chicken, therefore, is a must-have. GOOD DAY!!!

Beer Can gets so moist and with the right seasoning....its AMAZING!!! Its just not one meal for my family of two.....I can make about 4-5 meals from one standard size roasted Chicken like that....from soup to salad and from sandwich to Chinese!!! Yaayyy for Beer Can chicken!!

Hello I'm from the Philippines, I like the BEER CAN CHICKEN. I'm not actually a good cook but when I tried to make this one it taste really good. You can serve this in picnics, party or any time of the day. I can say that this is "NILASING NA MANOK" in Filipino? "NILASING" is drunk in Filipino. Thanks and More power to you!

Hi I'm from the Philippines and here in my country we have corn every summer...corn on cob with mayo is perfect. Healthy and easy to prepare. This recipe is unique,using mayo instead of butter. Hoping you can share with us some of your recipes. Thanks and God Bless.

The Fourth of July we had the Mexican Corn on the cob (with about 8 people here) and it was a hit! The lime finished it off perfectly! I'll be doing this again...likely a July Fourth tradition now (we do BBQ ribs & chicken for the 4th so this side was a great addition)!

Beer-can Chicken!!!! This recipe sounds so delicious and easy AND the last time I had beer can chicken, it was by far the crowd favorite - even though we were BBQing at an oyster farm, everyone was watching and loving the beer-can chicken! Thanks for the recipe!!
