Fun, games, music, celebrity athletes and extraordinary cuisine samplings highlighted this great evening under threatening skies. But spirits were high and the festivities continued, undeterred.
The crowd was able to get up close and personal with some of the greatest Dolphins to ever take the field of football during this charity event. Proceeds from the Grill-Off go to Offerdahl’s Hand-Off Foundation that benefits 4Kids of South Florida that receives 60% of the proceeds, Here’s Help Culinary Program that receives 20% of the proceeds, and the Miami Dolphin Foundation that also receives 20% of the proceeds.
Some of the personal recipes shared and cooked to perfection were Shula’s “Undefeated” Bone-in-Filet, Crash J Flank Steak, Dan Marinos “Throw-a-Lot-a” Civolata, Mercury Morris’ “Perfectville” BBQ Ribs, Pat Surtain’s Grilled Veal Shoulder “Pad,” Troy Stradford’s Short Ribs, Louis Oliver’s Duck Confit, Don McNeal’s “Quail Mary,” Sam Madison’s Spicy Sea Scallops, Dick Anderson’s Pigskin Pork Belly Sliders, Dwight Stevenson’s HOF Grilled Dolphin, Bob Kutchenberg’s “Perfect Seasoned” Salmon, Keith Sim’s Seasoned Swordfish, AJ Duhe’s Caino Prawns, Joe Rose’s “Big Dog” Veal Tenderloin, Mark Duper’s Skirt Steak and Nat Moore’s Little Lamb Chop.
John Offerdahl was in rare form as he introduced the celebrities, sharing the emcee duties with John “Foote” Kross, Paul Catronovo and David Gergely.
