Which Recipes Should a Grilling Newbie Try First?

I suddenly find myself in possession of a grill, my own patch of outdoor space, and thanks to years of yardless city living, absolutely zero grill recipes in my collection. Help! What should I grill first?

Top on my list is grilled pizza. I am a pizza fiend and have always been jealous of recipes like this Grilled Potato, Gorgonzola, and Prosciutto and this one with Mascarpone, Smoked Salmon, Asparagus.

And while my own recipe collection is bereft of grill recipes, luckily our archives here at The Kitchn come to my rescue. These recipes sound pretty good to me right now!

Grilled Tangy Spicy Boneless Chicken Thighs
Grilled Guacamole
Simple Rosemary Rubbed Pork Chops
Rolled Grilled Sandwiches with Pork, Green Beans, and Goat Cheese
Grilled Shrimp with Thyme, Adobo, and Smoked Paprika

What other recipes do you recommend putting on the list?
