With sunny summer weekends on the way, it's time to get outside and enjoy the nice weather. If you have a grill in your backyard, Man Fire Food's Roger Mooking will get you inspired to fire it up with an array of barbecued and smoked meats from around the country. Throughout his travels across the country, he's found mouth-watering dishes from slow-cooked prime rib to baked bacon cornbread, so even if you don't have the means to grill, you can try out some of his recipes.

Check out four of our favorites below.

Chipotle is having a pork shortage, so whip up your own carnitas at home with this Carnitas del Horno recipe.

Impress your friends and family with  Smoked Rib-Eye Roasts, which get lots of flavor from pickle juice, ginger, garlic and jalapenos.

If you don't have a grill, try  Lomi Salmon, which does all of its cooking in the fridge thanks to salt curing. The refreshing salad gets great texture from raw tomatoes and onions.

If you prefer to stay indoors and bake, make this  Skylight Inn Cornbread. Everything's better with bacon drippings, and you can even add some chopped-up bacon to the batter.

For even more food from Roger's travels, check out some of the best recipes from Man Fire Food in this gallery, and watch the Season 4 premiere on July 14 at 8pm ET.
