Summer Recipes to Kick Off Grilling Season

Summer is the season for cooking outside. Whether it’s barbecue, burgers, or hot dogs, it’s sure to taste delicious piled onto a Martin’s roll! Check out the three feature recipes to get a head start on your summer.

Baltimore Pit Beef Sandwich with Horseradish Sauce

Baltimore Pit Beef Sandwich with Horseradish Sauce

Thinly sliced roast beef, layered onto a large roll and topped with onions and spicy horseradish sauce, is a style of barbecue famously found in Baltimore, Maryland. Pit beef is typically cooked at a higher temperature than other types of barbecue, so it cooks fairly quickly—making it the perfect recipe to try if you’re just starting out learning how to barbecue meat.
