8:34 am
>> what if you don't have that time? what if you really want to get this dish on the table, do you need to brin snenk. >> you don't need to, but i love to because it puts the juiceiness in there. when you're grilling over dry heat, it's really smart to do. >> okay. >> now, i've got brines here. i'll put them on the grill, simp simple, four to five minutes on each side. and if you're grilling this weekend, one rule to know is never grill anything that's cold. >> always bring it up to room temperature. >> room temperature up to two hours. so, after those grilled for four to five minutes on each side -- and it's going to release itself from the grill, you know. >> okay. >> you're going to know what's going on. we're going to bring it over here and i'm going to show you the barbecue sauce, which is simple to make, matt. it's a one, two, three sauce. you'll do one cup of dark brown sugar, two cups of ketchup and three shallots chopped, right? >> three ingredients, that's it? okay. >> one, two, three. it's a simple barbecue sauce. >> for people who say it's too much trouble, i'll do the store-bought sauce, this is too easy. >> it's very easy xrvesi!

8:36 am
shredded cheese, sprinkle tale over the top with a little parsley and you're done. >> all right. >> and because they're accordion and they're facing up like this, it cooks a lot faster. barbecued chip chops. crunchy? >> well, first of all, the pork is really tender and juicy still. >> that's the brine. >> mm-hmm. and the chips do add an element i have not had before. i love it. it's really good. it's really good. what are you doing for the holiday? >> you know what, i'm going probably hang out with my dog and my cats in brooklyn. i just wanted to tell you guys, thank you so much for supporting me, a veteran. i've been coming by to honor the military members on memorial day for a long time at the "today" show and i really do appreciate you guys and what you do for the military members. >> we thank you for your service. we thank these folks here for their service as well. sunny, thanks a lot. >> thank you, matt. >> you can find this recipe, by the way, and all of the recipes of the week under the grilling tab at up next, great music to go with great food. dierks bentley live on the citi

we talked to our doctors about treatment with xarelto®. xarelto® is proven to treat and help reduce the risk of dvt and pe blood clots. xarelto® is also proven to reduce the risk of stroke in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. you know, taking warfarin, i had to deal with that blood testing routine. i couldn't have a healthy salad whenever i wanted. i found another way. yeah, treatment with xarelto®. hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical
9:11 am
or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is the number one prescribed blood thinner in its class. well that calls for a round of kevin nealons. make mine an arnold palmer. same here. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. this... i try hard to get a great shape. i can do easily. benefiber® healthy shape helps curb cravings. it's a clear, taste-free daily supplement... ...that's clinically proven to help keep me fuller longer. benefiber® healthy shape. this, i can do. find us in the fiber aisle. and i've found the perfect skincare. age perfect hydra-nutrition from l'oreal. deeply moisturizes with
